When the show ends, should we see a reboot of it by Lauren Faust?

Recommended Posts

Once FiM finally ends ( it will sooner or later), do you think we should see a full reboot of the show with Lauren being in charge of everything? It would have everything that she intended to put in it from her vision. It wouldn't have to be another show either, more of a comic or novel series.

Considering how Lauren departed and how she seems to negatively view the show and Hasbro now, I highly doubt she'll work with Hasbro on MLP again unfortunately. As for if she had full control, she had alot of great control in Season 1 but it seemed that she couldn't handle Hasbro's demands in S2 and just chose to leave cause of it. Considering how things have gone for the show, I see no reason to bring her back as the show's been fine without her and they have the formula thanks to her vision and others input that would help make future generations of MLP be successful too.

That's the thing though, she wouldn't have to work for Hasbro this time. She could just work for IDW instead and create a comic series of her own. I'm sure she still cares about the ponies she's created.

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS. OKAY?! YES!!!

 

 

YES!!!!

 

If she could make the show like season 1 and 2 again but still keep the story as they left it, that would be so incredibly wonderful.

Not that I don't enjoy it now, I think it's absolutely lovely, but there's a few reasons that I think Lauren did it better. c; Still my favorite show of all time, though! But goodness me, I would love it if she could make it the way she wanted with all the characters now, and I'd like to see the direction she would've taken it past season 2 as well had she still been working on it.

Alright, assuming she gets the chance to work on the comics with no strings attached, than it would be interesting to see what her vision for it is. I have my own reservations about it mainly for how I don't trust the quality on those comics and Lauren was never a strong writer, but it would be a good 'what if' scenario if things were allowed to go her way.

If Hasbro anytime decides to do S5 (i would love S4 to stay forever), then the only person on this entire planet and beyond i would trust to make this step is her. I don't think they would change the style and design, as they are billion times more successful than the previous generations, it's the perfection in it's purity. The characters also (most) existed in G3 and previous, i can't see any reason they would change everything. Hasbro announced somewhere to keep the generation for at least 10 years if it's successful.

I'll take a reboot no matter who does it.

Same. I would like to see a different reboot where there is a totally different Mane 6/set of characters/villains, with better backstories, well planned out, well put together, should be PG, we get to see the villains point of view. But the same animation style or better.

Give it all to Pencils.

 

I think they will have to change the show rating for that. Otherwise you'll have countless parents trying to explain to their children what a 'crotch god' is...

Gotta give them sex-ed someday.

 

Or you know: he doesn't have to write it PG-13. At one point (I will need to double check) they had a  guy who wrote a porno movie write an episode. So it's not like the creator behind the content has to make the show the same age-rating as what they do normally.

I'd love that, as I adore and respect all her work. But yeah, not likely to happen. She's still kind of burned out after all the hassle, and she's a mommy now and hoping on either taking a few years off or working part time from home so she can care for her daughter.

Doubtful.

She's moved on to other things and is too busy anyway.

If/when it ends, and it is rebooted, it'll likely be done by someone completely new. Possibly making it unwatchable.
