Season 9 Discussion Thread Anon 03/03/2019 (Sun) 22:42:35 [Preview] No. 3583
Ladies and gentlecolts! The final season of the legendary animated pony series from the 2010s is here!

The 4th generation of this franchise: My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic! This wild entertaining ride is actually ending!

The 9th season premieres on April and we´d better get ready to die (like Andrew W.K would say) because the last 26 episodes are coming this year, including the Rainbow Roadtrip special.

Any discussion, reflections, thoughts, theories, speculations... basically anything related to the episodes goes here.

You all know the deal. Like the old tradition for weddings: talk now or shut up forever before the nostalgia comes into your heads.

Links for streaming the upcoming episodes:

Congratulations for reaching the end of this generation and let´s try to enjoy the pony material left as much as we can!

Nice job as always. I suppose the first order of bussiness shall be the first teaser.

https://youtube.com/watch?v=00pGnVS4_tQ [Embed]
This teaser, while too little to make much speculation on, has surprised me in one aspect well, besides Sombra
Notice that the student 6 are absent completely? Not even in the shot with the background characters. At this point I can't be one hundred percent sure, but my bet the whole flurry heart and Sombra deal is probably the first parter. One last traditional two parter for the mane perhaps?

Another possibility is that this whole bussiness with the Rainbow Roadtrip may play a role. Hasbro looks like they could be rolling out a toyline with this. If this is the case, if this is some kind of mane6 centered possibly having to do with the season's story arch toyline maybe the student got deemphasized a little. I mean they've done to much setting up to get rid of completely but the Student 6 themselves clearly disrupted the stuff they where setting up in the end of season 7. Too early to speculate becuase we have so little information but it's something I'd wonder considering them fighting King Sombra and going on a road trip certainly doesn't feel like they are putting quite as much emphasis on the school, at least for part of the season. Will have to wait for more before we can judge but I'm just putting it out there.

Well well well. Look who has reared their head again after all this time. It's almost perfectly timed to cash in. Hmmmmmm.

for that deal, I suppose that involving the students into this would be too many character to show up on 44 minutes for such a plot device like this. This problem is kind of personal to them. Even if one feels that the mane 6 could get replaced, they have always dealt with the heavy part and left the chewed stuff for the rest (unless we are talking about To Where And Back Again).

>Hasbro looks like they could be rolling out a toyline with this
I´ve seen a post speculating that this production could have been the 2nd movie for gen 4 but decided to make an special instead. I cannot complain about that decision if that rumor is true.
>I mean they've done to much setting up to get rid of completely but the Student 6 themselves clearly disrupted the stuff they where setting up in the end of season 7.
we will see. Keep in mind that this teaser shows pretty much nothing, let alone if they appear in a couple of scenes of this premiere.

>going on a road trip certainly doesn't feel like they are putting quite as much emphasis on the school, at least for part of the season.
I have my suspicions that the students aren´t the main stars over there....I am imagining certain directions for it though.

Filly Funstasia... arriving exactly next week when it was supposed to be dead and there haven´t been almost little to zero news about it in the meantime.

It´s not like they have postponed it just to figure out that there was an audience who´s running out of fresh content next year and have a free ticket for the market.

GEEEEE
I wonder why they decided to do this, can you even have an idea of that move?. It really makes you think, darling.

** >
In the back-to-back season premiere episodes, titled "The Beginning of the End," Princess Celestia and Princess Luna decide to retire and hand off the ruling of Equestria to Twilight Sparkle and her friends, which sends Twilight into a tailspin of self-doubt. Meanwhile, an ancient villain bands together a legion of nefarious characters to conquer all of Equestria, challenging Twilight Sparkle and the rest of the Mane 6 to step in and save the day. **
This is... fan fiction.

I had always speculated somepony was going to have to give. Well techincally I still could be very wrong I wonder if the the princesses are still going to be in the show 90% sure yes but there is a chance that they may have them go out somewhere else and only come back for a couple of episodes.

indeed. If you posted this around the 2nd season,it would be every brony's edgy wet dream.
However,this show has jumped over the shark so many times that the shark went onto a vacation period and get to a point where fanfiction is canon in Equestria. You cannot tell if this was actually possible to apply but it seems that this show wants to cover everything.

You said this in Nightmare Knights and I will repeat one famous line from a very well known princess: "There is no wrong way to fantasize"

...until you decide to put it on practice.

>I had always speculated somepony was going to have to give.
well,that's a better excuse than making them weak.

>sure yes but there is a chance that they may have them go out somewhere else and only come back for a couple of episodes.
I kind of doubt so. It's not like they were very present all the time but they have been part of this from the start so I guess that we will see them until the very end of this gen....

unless they start a big journey and deliver an entire spin off season based around them

what's worse is that this show has less than 10 months left to hold its lifetime. I suppose we will all be "healed" at the end of the day...

in theory...

about the 2nd screencap....
top kek, that anon would rate your Revolution fic a 10 out of 10 and you would earn a new fan. If he read it tonight,he would probably find some sleep.

You, that ain't impossible to be honest. Heck, I could even see slight possibilities of wilder fanservice, such as EqG having them pop up durring the transition period to the new show once or twice...

>However,this show has jumped over the shark so many times that the shark went onto a vacation period and get to a point where fanfiction is canon in Equestria. You cannot tell if this was actually possible to apply but it seems that this show wants to cover everything.
I have so many questions. I'm both nervous and excited but depending on the dynamic and what is brought to the table it could be weird. The past two seasons have been lower teir fan fiction. I mean adding a bunch of OCs and bringing so many characters from the past all in one huge blender is a hallmark of fanfic. But we are truly crossing over into the Twilight Zone literally I guess if we are going into... higher tier fanfiction.

I'm not sure on Celestia (as I've said it'd tak me a long time to explain my thoughts on her). Luna I actually can understand a bit but it's way too early to judge.

from this show, you basically can expect everything and nothing at the same time. This is why I have no expectations.

> have so many questions. I'm both nervous and excited but depending on the dynamic and what is brought to the table it could be weird.
so do I. I try not to think too much about it because it can to any direction they want to and they will get away with most of the time. This is a show that relies more on interactions between the characters, it doesn´t take bets for a complicated plot (normally)

>The past two seasons have been lower teir fan fiction. I mean adding a bunch of OCs and bringing so many characters from the past all in one huge blender is a hallmark of fanfic. But we are truly crossing over into the Twilight Zone literally I guess if we are going into... higher tier fanfiction.
consider the following. The Mane 6 have been through so many adventures that it´s become almost a routine for them to the point where barely anything surprises them. Yes, those same cute ponies that everyone laughed at and you could describe them as incompetent and flawed (they were scared about the Everfree Forest) anti heroes have dealt and survived more than MMORPG characters.
There is a line from Cadence that she repeated a couple of times and it´s that Twilight´s life is so interesting because nothing like that happens in the Crystal Empire, far from that the events over there are more mundane than the adventures we see.

What´s even more ironic and funny is that when they have to deal with their usual lives,they can deal with them as if nothing extraordinary happened. Even more, when anything menacing happens in Ponyville, even background ponies barely get surprised by it.

So, are we entering into high levels of fanfiction or were their characters alone the actual definition of fanfiction in the first place?

>>3627
>Luna I actually can understand a bit but it's way too early to judge.
well yeah, we´ll have to see. This is nothing more than a plot device for the premiere. Maybe the 6th episode (or whatever) is about them, who knows?

>I'll make a sequal to it and post it all on /mlp/ sometime soon though I had another fic in mind first, but that one is a surprise
definitely they have given you ideas without asking them...

Priceless, that´s all I can say.

I have lost the count. I wonder if they have beaten princess Peach at this point. I suppose that´s what the princess title is for.

Though I have far more thoughts on the subject, the simplest thing to say is that they have gotten the same treatment as a certain Klingon...

also, not completely season 9 related but it seems that the student 6 are getting their first waves of merchandise and...

this is Hasbro what we are talking about, right? Because there´s no way any other company would dismiss one of its characters that it tried to promote last year.

What do they have against Ocellus? Are they afraid of selling her to the public?
The solution for that is....replacing her with the student that wanted friendship for power.

At least, if Hasbro wants to sell merchandise from the villains, they´d better add a cool figure of Chrysalis, The Pony of Shadows or Sombra.

Anyway, the picture speaks for itself.

Worf has become associated with a character who is said to be strong but just becomes a stepping stone to show how threating something is.

>Almost the whole "Young Six" is included: Sandbar, Silverstream, Yona, Gallus and Smolder and at last Cozy Glow. So no Ocellus sadly. (or perhaps she's in disguise... *looks at Cozy Glow*
Maybe they are right and she is disguised as a Cozy Glow.

Though seriously why Cozy Glow is going to be released with the student 6 and not freaking Ocellus? I wonder what sort of weird logic is going into that considering they were pushing the student 6 as a group last season...

Is Ocellus the new Spike?.

that description comes dangerously close to what the princesses have done for a long time, especially Celestia in the first seasons (this menace is coming, go here, I look powerful to do it but I leave the task to you and you friends. Good luck and come and visit me whenever you end the quest).

Hell, even if we go a little bit further with these descriptions, we can certainly say that Celestia is almost like that NPC who is there to introduce you to the next mission in a video game.

even if they were right, has the marketing staff stopped and thought for a little bit? I know it´s only mindless merchandise but it´s really funny to point it out anyway.

>Though seriously why Cozy Glow is going to be released with the student 6 and not freaking Ocellus? I wonder what sort of weird logic is going into that considering they were pushing the student 6 as a group last season...
if any parent bought that toy to that kid and that kid hasn´t watched the show, how can they tell that is Ocellus or Cozy Glow? They will say that it´s Cozy Glow and I would do that as well.

First, Ocellus, as far as I know maybe I am wrong, hasn´t transformed into Cozy Glow so far. Secondly, Thorax said to her that she should keep her true form because that´s better and she obeyed. She only has disguised herself counted times (and even then, you could tell her that it was her clearly when she changed into a seapony or a piranha in NCC. I think you could only mistake her when she turned into Rarity and Chrysalis by accident). They could have used the blue eyes from the seapony form and you would see her to some extent at first sight.

And lastly, out of the changelings that could have been disguised, they choose Ocellus....and when you see check her tag on Derpibooru, about 90% of the images related to her are in her original body...

Hasbro almost nails it in reverse.

>Is Ocellus the new Spike?
I don´t know. A few would have bet that the new Spike would be Sandbar but it seems that this timeline goes into another direction.
