MLP G5 Discussion and Speculation Thread

One complaint I’ve noticed about Tell Your Tale is that Izzy has been stripped of all the nuance she had in the movie and become a Pinkie clone.
What do you think? Do you think Izzy has been flanderized into Pinkie 2.0? How worried about this are you?

At times it she feels Pinkie 2.0-adjacent. I wouldn’t say he had a whole lot of depth in the movie, but for most episodes it seems she has only her ditziness to her.
T.U.E.S.day is an interesting case. It ramped up her Pinkie-ness, but at the same time reintroduced some of her more nuanced aspects (ie, her “Uni-cycling” hobby and loneliness).

Tyt is short and quick, so it makes sense that the writers take the nuance of a character, and break them down to just their basic components, e.g. Izzy being optimistic and loud. So she does seem like Unicorn Pinkie. However, I do like the fact that they setup how Izzy is such an outcast that it’s gotten to the point where no other unicorn was there to see her leave,(except for that kid), so she wants to feel accepted by her friends, which I think is different from what Pinkie had. They’re both very needy but it makes more sense for Izzy to be needy.
I’m not that worried cause it seems like she’s is a little bit more chill in MyM. And again I’m not really expecting quality writing for a 5 minutes YouTube show. Though I am expecting better writing from the actual show and I hope she would get better treatment there, so she isn’t casted out to the side for being
a Pinkie clone.

I haven’t watched all the episodes of Tell your Tale, but I don’t think so. And even if she is, that wouldn’t matter, because these are 5 minutes episodes.
If these were 22 minutes episodes, I would understand the complaint because this type of behavior make an episode so much longer. But it’s not the case. You don’t feel you wasted your time with a 5 minutes episode.

I’m of the opinion that Izzy is neurodivergent, but able to pass for neurotypical (if a bit eccentric). I think her brain works a lot like mine, where she can’t read the room the normal way (whatever that is), but she’s learned how to make an educated guess on how she’s supposed to act. This is a skill she has honed to the point where it’s a reflex, and she does things that don’t even register as weird until you stop and think about them. She also reflexively self-deprecates when she can see that she’s guessed wrong. One little detail that supports this theory is how she references “medium sneaky” as if Zipp would understand the reference, even though Zipp wasn’t there for it.
She reflexively tries to put a positive spin on things, and my interpretation is that she’s not great at dealing with the negative emotions of others.
Go back and watch the movie with this in mind; I genuinely think it adds an extra layer to her character.
What I’ve noticed is that she’s a bit less filtered now that she’s gotten more comfortable around her new friends. This also supports my theory.
One detail that I really appreciated about the movie is how none of the jokes about her misinterpreting the situation were ever at her expense, so I don’t really like it when TYT does it.
Other than that, I think it’s been a pretty faithful adaptation of her character.

Why does Hasbro always have MLP shows produced in Canada? Why not have it produced in the US, so we can have veteran VAs like Tom Kenny or Rob Paulsen in MLP?

Because it’s less expensive? They’ve been doing it since My Little Pony Tales, I don’t think it’ll ever change. And the recent Transformers series is recorded in Canada as well, which suggests that all Hasbro series will be recorded there as well.

They’re a corporation. Their entire motivation is literally just profit.
Artistic integrity or ingenuity is nice an all, but if “good enough” and corner cutting can wring out a few extra profit then of course that’s where they’ll lean.

You know if considering every g5 material is canon. The order is like out of place. I can’t pinpoint it unless I mix up episodes, comics, and books from g5. Okay I can ignore the books but the shows and upcoming comics don’t seem to have any order I can assemble from.

The number of people who don’t know the difference between a wall and a gate is pretty sad.
Twilight didn’t build a wall.

Yeah I feel like the comics are pretty much just trying to be season 11 now.
I’m not saying they need to avoid any G4 based story But maybe wait-a-bit

Is there some kind of rule out there that says when sequels should add flashbacks or is it just something that bothers you so much?

Am I the only one who doesn’t care if they add ‘G4 based stories’ (if you can call quick flashbacks that) sooner or later?
