I've been thinking about this for a while now, and I'm sure I'm not the only one thinking this, but I wonder what's gonna happen after the "My Little Pony Movie" hits theatres in October of 2017. Believe it or not, I actually thought that after the movie, that was going to be the end of MLP:FIM as we know it at first. But, then I thought about how popular the show has become since it first aired in 2010. You could literally look up "My Little Pony" on google RIGHT NOW, and that will pretty much be the first result.
Back on the subject, I noticed that unlike the previous 3 generations of MLP, this one is by far the most popular! I've seen lots of fanart on Deviantart of the show in many different styles by many different artists, many reaction videos of the episodes we all know and love, heck even the people at Hasbro studios put in some things that they thought that we, the fans of this show, would approve, such as the 100th episode have the background ponies being the main focus, the return of Trixie Lulamoon, etc. All of this made me think that maybe that even after the movie, MLP won't end. Nope. Not even close. I mean, Spongebob Squarepants was intended to end after the movie, right? But it didn't. It just kept going after the movie. Same thing with the Simpsons. After their movie was published, the series still continued on. Even Rugrats did this as well. Which made me feel more positive that MLP won't end after the movie. I mean, why should it? It's gotten so popular, that I can see this show becoming the next Simpsons! On a side note, I'm sure that they'll also keep adding certain elements to please the fans in the upcoming 7th season, and no doubt the movie of course.
But hey, that's just a theory. A FILM theory!
