Notoriously Divine Tagger - Consistently uploads images above and beyond the minimum tag requirements. And/or additionally, bringing over the original description from the source if the image has one. Does NOT apply to the uploader adding several to a dozen tags after originally uploading with minimum to bare tagging.

From what little I’ve seen — what little’s available — I don’t see much reason to expect it to be. Spike is wingless, Sugarcube Corner is the center of operations, and the Corner also seems to have a stash of mysterious magic potions — none of these things jibe with G4.

It’s also on an island for some reason.

Maybe the smooze came back, flooded the world, and now they’re holed up in sugarcube corner, waiting for rescue and getting high on the "potions" pinkie has stashed in the basement.

I think it furthers my guess that this was designed to cash in on TTG as it’s movie was better than MLP’s, but then again, you need to read my custom title.

It sounds like a spinoff of somekind so they can milk it more. But why they ended the main show over this I have no idea…

They ended the main show so they could gear up for G5. This is most likely filler to keep the franchise in view until then. It’s also likely less expensive.

Nope. This is a completely different universe. It only retains the main characters for it.

Most of FIM’s writers stopped being consistent after like Season 4, and both Keating Rogers, and M.A. Larson (two of the more notable writers for FIM) quit after Season 5, with excerpts of a script from Larson being used in Season 7.

It could go for a while, but it’d be just like FIM where writers stopped being consistent after a while.

It’d better be. Because then that opens up the door to new shipping. And I don’t want to see my Rarity with another mare.

It will be its own thing that likely pulls on FIM for flavor and lore. I wouldn’t be surprised if we see a lot of background and secondary characters show up as well.

I doubt we’ll be seeing most characters post Season 2 except Starlight Glimmer and Cozy Glow, maybe some other villains too. I could also see maybe Flurry Heart. Spur has a 1 in Graham’s Number chance of being a background cameo, and she’s probably the most likely Season 9 character after Grogar and Luster Dawn; and forget about unnamed background ponies (and I’m pretty sure Hasbro technically doesn’t even own Spur anyway)

I think this is going to be its own thing. I also feel like it’s a partial reboot.

I am expecting this to be fluff; I’ll be genuinely (and pleasantly) surprised if the writing is good. Until then, I am skeptical.
