It seems like we may start focusing more on characters other than the Mane 6, but what if Hasbro has plans to go further?
Over the last three seasons, episodes focusing on any of the Mane 6 have become increasingly repetitive (especially season 6). The mane cast have pretty much achieved their goals.
Rarity has shops throughout Equestria, Twilight has discovered her purpose, and Rainbow Dash is a Wonderbolt. Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie and Applejack already had something they were doing before the show even started. They have matured a lot too.
Hell, even the Cutie Mark Crusaders have their cutie marks!
At this point, it’s very difficult to do anything new with these characters.
With season 7 coming next month, and an 8th season already confirmed, it seems like Hasbro has plans… plans that may not involve the mane 6 too much.
Starlight episodes haven’t been repetitive like the mane 6 episodes lately. What if Hasbro had plans for Starlight way back before season 5 even premiered?
The hiatus between season 4 and 5 was enormous. It dragged on for months with little news as to what we should have expected.
What if the reason it took so long to get it out the door was because they didn’t even start until months after the season 4 finale? What if the writers were told to come up with new characters that could eventually replace the Mane 6?
I believe generation 4.5 is on the way, and may be here sooner than we think. I feel like the movie might be the finale for the Mane 6. G4.5 could possibly focus on a new set of characters. Starlight Glimmer, Sunburst, Thorax, and other characters who have yet to be introduced. Maybe Trixie would be in there? I’m sure Seth would like that.
What do you think? Does it seem like a big change could be coming to MLP? Would you like it? How would you react?
