@Background Pony #C65A Hmmmm… that doesn't say much. It could be set in the same world as G4, but not be part of the same continuity, you know? Like Grand Theft Auto, some names and locations might have reapeared from the GTA 3 era games over to IV and V but these games share no canon stories or characters.
“With the movie, we started development and made the decision to expand the world of My Little Pony, rather than starting from scratch with a total brand reinvention,” Thompson says. “We found ourselves with this whole decade of storytelling and really rich lore, and it felt wrong to walk away from all of that."
Sorry Luster, but Hasbro wanted it happen in the future where you no longer exist and where Mane6 were the only heroes in the history books. Apparently nobody else accomplished anything after Mane6 ended their careers.
