    Pony Life, Season 3?

    I don't really have any desire to see a third season of Pony Life, but is there any reason to think that one is being considered? Someone who has been posting regularly recently on the official My Little Pony Facebook page has been spreading "news" that suggests that a third season is already in the works, but I suspect that she is simply spreading unconfirmed rumors. Does anypony else have a handle on this?
  2. I don't think we really need a dedicated Pony Life forum. Especially since the show seems to have concluded with its second season.

    I'm reading that a trailer for My Little Pony: A New Generation will drop on August 20, 2021. Sooner than expected! The official My Little Pony Facebook page reveals that the trailer will premiere on August 12.

    Hi there! What's your favorite anime? When I was a kid we had stuff like the original Speed Racer and Astro Boy (in black & white). I started really being an anime fan with Star Blazers (Space Cruiser Yamato) and Battle of the Planets (Science Ninja Team Gatchaman) in the 1970s.
  5. Variety reports: ‘My Little Pony’ Movie Skipping Theaters to Debut on Netflix (EXCLUSIVE) No news yet on cast or characters, but there is this at the end of the article: I don't suppose there will be any further announcements about cast, characters or crew until at least the Hasbro Ivestor's Event on February 25 or WonderCon's virtual event in March.

    This Forum really quieted down

    Once might be an accident, but this is just careless.

    Is Potion Nova an Alicorn?

    When we first see Potion Nova in Pony Life, she appears as an Alicorn and we see such magical effects as flowers springing up in her wake. However, when she introduces herself to the Mane 6, she seems to be a normal Unicorn pony. This raises the question: Is Potion Nova really an Alicorn? 1) Yes, though she disguises herself as a Unicorn pony for unknown reasons. 2) No, any scenes showing Potion Nova as an Alicorn are just animation errors. 3) No, the creators are deliberately trolling us! 4) Other (what is your theory?).

    Is Potion Nova an Alicorn?

    I'm not really in love with either hypothesis, though #1 seems more likely than #2. I will note that there are (and have been) ponies in Equestria with royal titles who are not Alicorns. For instance, we have Prince Blueblood in Canterlot and Princess Amore (said to be an ancestor of Cadance) in the Crystal Empire.

    Another MLP:FIM review thread

    What?! LOL I'm not sure what's so funny here? If Twilight and her friends are defeated then Flurry Heart becomes the Chosen One who needs to be hidden and protected until she comes of age and is able to take up the challenge. Standard heroic fantasy trope.

    Hey !

    Hello and welcome, Bunnie!
  13. Sure! There are some perfectly fine episodes in those seasons even if you consider them weaker as a whole.

  15. Hey, as far as I'm concerned, every season had its good points. Watch away!

    I'm guessing that there was some kind of catastrophe (maybe natural, maybe not) or other huge event that shifted the planet Equus into orbit around its sun so that magic no longer controls the rising and setting of the Sun and Moon. Each of the Pony tribes blamed one or both of the others for the event and magic was lost. The Pegesi blamed the Unicorns, and with the loss of Cloudsdale and their abilities to fly, cloudwalk and control the weather, they drove the Unicorns away from Canterlot and took over the mountain.

    Season 10 Discussion

    Yup! Just one month to go!
  18. When I was in high school (many years ago) we had an elective class in science fiction that was taught by the sister of local s.f./fantasy author Nancy Kress. I met Ms. Kress a couple of years later.
  19. Hello Mellodillo. If one of your OCs is named Mithril can I assume that you're a Tolkien fan?

    Bronylist? That's an odd phrase; doesn't sound like a reference to a person.

    In which ways are you old-fashioned?

    I don't currently have my own cell phone, much less a smart phone.

    I've got a lot of anime soundtrack CDs from the 1980s and '90s.
