What kind of movie would we have gotten if Faust had stayed?


Recommended Posts

I was watching the 2017 Brony Thank You Fund Interview and saw that Lauren Faust was still bitter about how Hasbro treated her and making her leave around season 3, so she wasn't thrilled about the MLP movie because she didn't get to work on it. What kind of MLP movie do you guys think Faust would've brought to the table, if she had been the one to work on it?

Hasbro didn't force Faust to leave, hun.

She left because she was not happy that Hasbro got to maintain creative control over their brand. She didn't like them expanding their brand to other lines such as EQG and she left. There was no mistreatment at all, it was merely a creative difference that caused the split. Hasbro clearly still wishes her well and accredits her in every episode even though they are under no legal obligation to do so.

I didn't say that they forced her to leave. But they made her leave by not respecting her and allowing her creativity, rather than pushing their marketing. Regardless, that topic has been discussed to death already, and it not the focus of this thread. So maybe reel it back and focus on the question I posed in the op? Thanks.

Lauren Faust left of her own volition due to creative differences, the usual reasoning for such things occurring with regards to cartoons. Had she stayed on and continued working on the show, a lot of the concepts introduced in later seasons might not have happened or they would have but not in the manner with which we've come to see them as. In that sense, her leaving proved to be beneficial to generation four as a whole. The opposite is also true. If she were still on board, her ideas would've been realized and those would prove beneficial and we'd be talking about them instead of what is.

Well, there would have been no "grand theft twilight" for a start.....

And no edgy unicorn either.
