    The live action scenes in Pinkie Pride are some of the best moments in pony history. But I sure hope they don't do any of that in the movie.

    I suspect there's going to be a sequel to EG... but that this is going to be as well, not instead. Everything I've seen so far suggests that this movie (the 2017 one) will be about actual ponies. :)

    It's probably not going into the scripting phase just yet, judging by the tweet being deleted. See, this is why EqD should have taken a screenshot.

    More likely that he overstepped his position by divulging such information and decided to remove it to prevent getting in trouble or was told to by those in charge.

    He's learned a good lesson for anyone getting involved with MLP, though: this fandom notices everything! :p

    I'm wondering exactly what sort of story they'll tell with this new feature-length freedom. Will it be some high-fantasy world-building epic, or a rollicking adventure comedy, or an all-out balls-to-the-wall Lego-Movie-Esque bit of crazy-awesome metafiction, or something else entirely?

    Personally, my hopes are on the last option: Going completely wild with all sorts of brilliant but crazy concepts and ideas. I mean they've already established that Equestria exists as part of a multiverse (We've got the main Equestria, the Equestria Girls universe and the evil universe from the comics so far), so anything's possible. Travelling between universes, threats from beyond the bounds of reality, abstract concepts becoming physical manifestations, spaceships made of frozen music, a hat made of the internet and a trenchcoat fastened with a lightning bolt...Why yes, I have been reading alot of Grant Morrison comics recently, how could you tell :D?

    I think Hasbro will probably insist on the film remaining at a G rating (so U in the UK) rather than allowing it to go to PG as (for example) the new Paddington film has done. That obviously limits things a little, though the likes of "Twilight's Kingdom" demonstrate quite clearly that creative enough writers can find a way to work within such restrictions!

    I'm pretty open-minded about the sort of film it turns out to be -- though the one thing I don't want is a sort of celluloid equivalent of a Cook/Price comic, packed with hundreds of brony-aimed references. I love (most of) those comics, but I don't think they'd be right for a general-audience movie. If you really pushed me to choose one option, I'd go with an adventure story of some sort. I think that's the genre that would probably benefit most from the extra space over even a double episode. Maybe we'd finally get to see the griffon kingdom! (Though I somehow suggest that the lawyers would stamp on calling it How to Train Your Griffon. :p)

    As long as they don't kill off all the main cast in first half hour and replace with new characters like they did in the animated Transformers movie, then I'm fine with what they do.

    The worrying thing is that doing that would fit in with making the movie the very last piece of G4 animation to be released... :p

    Think of the profits. Think of the inspiration! Think of the future potential profits!

    G4 will. Not. Die.

    Ever.
