I agree with this take, because the series has more time to build the up. I think for a movie it did a great job of setting up all the characters, and it was really well done in a variety of ways (and amazing VAing etc), but it can't spend much time on any character as it also has to set up the world and the lore and tell a story etc etc.

as for each char:

Pipp. Her and Zipp's role in TYT are easily the best IMO, and Pipp's character in the movie was quite backgroundish (although I love her supporting Sunny's dancing) so she is clearly an improvement I agree

Hitch. Him being a dragon dad is a hooves down great little departure for the show. Didn't realise people weren't into this D:

Sunny is the char I'd say was least improved on. In TYT and MYM she sometimes feels backgroundish to me. Her alicorn responsibilities and status, unlike Twi's, are kinda vague. She gets stressed about setting events up, and there's a few sweet moments around that. Sunny in the movie, meanwhile, drove it forward as she was helping resolve the main conflict, and her relationship with Hitch and Izzy illuminates both her and those others. She has her moments though.

Izzy. TYT and MYM build on the fun and creativeness of this char nicely. Movie Izzy was good and TYT/MYM give us more Izzy.

Zipp. As I said above, Zipp and Pipp's relationship is one of the best developments post movie. Zipp was also one of the only good things about early MYM for me (chaps 4-6 are where it really took off IMO).

"I like the characters better in the G5 shows, this essay fully explains why."

Well, Pipp barely got any lines in the movie so that's strike one! :Angry-zip:

In all seriousness, I think Izzy was better in the movie compared to whatever her TYT character is supposed to be. :izzy-oooh:

You can see in the essay that I am aware that Pipp's improvement in the shows is the "low-hanging fruit", that's why I elaborate on how the movie couldn't have done the development given to her in the shows. Also, I have another essay linked to in the DA description that explains why Izzy is the way she is.
