Personally, I hope the toy line is less of the same ponies over and over. For the show, I just don't know. You might check.out this thread. It's got some of what you're asking.

I think they should do what they did with G3 (before the Core 7), rereleasing some well-known ponies like Pinkie Pie or Minty a decent amount of times over the course of its run but still releasing plenty of new ponies every year.

Ah! I'll check that thread out!

That would be perfect if they do it that way :D

I've a very similar opinion to everyone above! I'd love to see less of the same 5-6 ponies over and over, and I'd really like it if the toys were more horse-like. Maybe some hooves ala g2 or even 4.5 (no other 4.5 inspo tho- not really a fan of Pony Life at all!) ? I'd like more hair and perhaps a bigger general size than gen 4. But my hopes aren't too high on that front! :tongue:

Oh that’s a good point, a size closer to G1 or g3 would be pretty nice :)

Same, I would love a bigger size and defined hooves like G2 or G4.5. Maybe even like the Big Brother ponies, but that might be too much for the regular molds.
I like the differing eye shapes that G4 has, I hope they keep doing that. I also really hope for lots of different poses like they used to.

But to be honest my biggest wish is just better quality control. Realistically, my hopes aren’t very high for that but I can dream. :blush: Make me eat my words Hasbro

I just hope they don't continue with the lazy quality and manic vibe of the Pony Life show. I'd kill for a cartoon that is smart and has heart rn.

I really hope they look more like actual ponies and not like alien/mouse looking creatures... :)
Lots of stuff can (and have) change(d) in production and these were cartoon designs not toy designs but in the leaks back in late 2017 the designs thrown around all looked pretty different from each other but the one thing they had in common was that they all look more horse-like there, so hopefully they keep going in that direction!

Yeah, I just binged My Little Pony ‘n Friends for the first time and if I’m being completely honest I enjoyed it a lot more than Pony Life. I mean, it had a lot of quality issues too but that was kinda par for the course for toy cartoons at the time.
Pony Life just feels like a less fun Unikitty, and this isn’t me being a FiM purist or something because I really tried to like PL but couldn’t :/ Some jokes are funny but that’s about it. But in the end, it’s harmless, I’m sure some kids like it and I don’t think the G5 cartoon is going to go in that direction.

Might I suggest you then check out Kipo and the Age of the Wonderbests (Netflix), Amphibia (Disney+), Owl House & Steven Universe (then the Movie then SU Future). All these shows are wonderfully written and have a lot of heart and good for the soul watching.

As for G5 - as far as the toy line is concerned, I’d like to see quality and care for the line come back. Just feels like the people behind the ponies don’t really care what kids/collectors want anymore. Just the dollars in the bank. With that comes more variety of pony designs and not just the same characters over and over. Bring back larger more playable ponies (G1 size would be amazing but I am a bit biased) - fabric clothing and actual accessories again. Honestly, rubber bands are not accessories and it’s a literal scam. #(-__-)

For the show/movie, again a good diverse and adventure continuity based show that has the love and passion of G1 but the fun of G4 would be nice. I would prefer it not be cgi based like the Hello Pinkie Pie shorts (I hate the movements but I’m very technically judgemental on animation because it’s in my background). I would literally kill to see some beautiful traditional artwork for at least the movie but I know it will never happen. Just my hopes and dreams. CGI isn’t always better.

But yeah, my two cents.

Is there a thread on this site specifically for the discussion of unrelated cartoons or anime? Because I was about to geek out about some of the cartoons you mentioned and some others but realized it was completely off-topic, heh.

I just started owl house and it seems great so far! And I agree cgi isn’t always better, I absolutely love hand drawn animation. It was always my dream job to be an animator at Disney but now I know if it ever happens I won’t get to do anything 2d :cry:
Do you mind if I ask what you do that animation is part of your background? (If you do that’s totally fine by the way, I know some people don’t like to share stuff like that online)

I will send to a dm as it's long and totally off topic. ;)

I hope the fandom will be more tame. I sort of zipped out my enjoyment of My Little Pony when FiM was popular as a young kid, because I'd come across some very not-child friendly things when I wasn't even trying to. (and the toys weren't big enough for me!)

And like others have said, hoping for big g1 sized ponies that look like ponies!
