Will The Movie Hit Theatres Or Will It Be Straight To DVD?


Recommended Posts

What I mean is that Hasbro's higher-ups, like Stephen Davis for example, don't deal with the cease and desist issues that the company have to deal with. It's up to their lawyers to handle that and the fandom have quite a testy relationship with them. They're all part of the same company yes, yet this one division deals with the more... troublesome issues.

 

Of course MLP is popular with Americans since the show originated in the U.S. with Canada providing the animation and voice recordings.

Am I the only one who thinks Cease and Desist shouldn't even be a thing?

The 2017 movie will be a theatrical release given the distributor, the celebtrity voice cast, the improved animation program they are using instead of Flash, and so on. It will end up being released o

It's already been said for a while it's getting a theatrical release. Pretty sure Lionsgate is distributing it.

I think the movie will have a more public theatrical release than EQG. And I think that there will be a lot of advertising for the movie starting a few months before the movie is released. There will

 

 

If not then Hasbro is most likely to still air it there because of wanting as much coverage as possible.  

Of course, Hasbro want to spread ponies around the world  :twi: If the film distributors care, i will buy the ticket and popcorn, i dont care what people think about me  :P , but i prepare for the worst  :o

 

 

They even changed the theme song! It's still the proper MLP theme however they're using the instrumental to the extended theme song, and there's a random clip from the Crystal Empire at the end. It's...strange.  

SAY NO TO DUB  :angry: in any form of media.  The original voice actors are all talent people, dont waste their products. Subtitles are your friends.

 

 

Yeah... A moment of silence for our Brony Vietnamese comrades.

Thanks, Omega.  :sunny:

You wouldn't be alone in that camp although that's what happens when you live in a world where big corporations are able to get away with doing so much compared to regular people.

The bigger the distribution, the more money that ends up in Hasbro's pockets.

Just wanna say, the lawyers are part of Hasbro, so it is technically Hasbro doing it.
 

 

Actually... no. It's a weird thing, but is surprisingly common for corporations like Hasbro. They actually pay another company to do their lawyering, which is why the C&D letters can be confusing as heck as they're not technically from Hasbro and are never on Hasbro letterhead (if physical). They're from whatever legal firm Hasbro has retained at the moment. Plus several of the letters I've seen weren't even from them, but were from legal firms retained by the companies who have (or had) the MLP license for specific things. Shout Factory, Gameloft, Discovery, and so on. It's a bit of a mess.

No problem. The whole world must remember...

Yeah, sometimes I wonder who the hell decides to put all the greedy people in those jobs...

You've had Cease & Desist letters before?

Personally, no. But I've seen a bunch that were sent to other people, mostly because the people were confused and wanted more opinions about them.

Many got to where they are by moving up the corporate ladder while others got there because they were either related to the family or happened to be a close friend.

Jeez, this is all wrong, people should be assessed on how good they are at the job, not by whether you know the person you're hiring...

It's actually a common practice in Japan from what I remember.

Hmmmmmm... Have any images?

 

Nah, I don't keep records of other people's legal stuff, just in case. I don't want it to get mixed up into any legal records I have for my own stuff. Years and years ago when I applied for my first work visa (TN type) for America things went sideways for awhile because my soon-to-be-not-roomate had thrown in her arrest record into the file of work references I had brought to the border... so I don't keep that kind of stuff around any more. If people ask me to look at legal stuff, I look at it, give my uneducated opinion, and then get rid of it. :)

Oh, yeah that's understandable. I still stand on the grounds that I don't think C&D's should exist.
