    I feel like it'll perform well enough. I'm assuming the first Equestria Girls was a decent success? This has the chance to do a bit better than it, since we don't have a high school setting or awkward human-ponies this time round.

    Like it or not, MLP still has a stigma attached to it.

    I don't expect the theater to be full opening day.

    Oh, I don't expect full theaters either. I just think it has a shot of making a modest profit. I mean, Equestria Girls did. Box office isn't the only thing the movie will have going for it, too. The toy and DVD sales are going to be big.

    Bless this movie. It knows exactly what I love.

    I don't think it'll be an issue. Lionsgate's going to rely on presales by selling theatrical, TV, streaming, and home video rights globally before the movie comes out. Doing so, the film will have already made most of its money before the film's release, so it doesn't have to do that great at the box office to be a success at the studio.

    I don't think it will underperform, in fact because of the date move, it may/will probably succeed and at least for that first opening weekend, become #1 at the box office. I mean Lionsgate and Hasbro aren't dumb, the reason they moved up in the first place, was because of what Marvel and DC have coming to theaters around.in November, I don't think Lionsgate, AllSpark/Hasbro want to chance the MLP (FIM) Movie getting lost in that shuffle, don't you agree.

    One of the co-writers of Toy Story 2 and Mulan does bode well for the movie.

    The Elements of Toon Boom: Harmony should make for much stronger animation overall. This is good news.

    It'll be cool seeing how different the animation is, I'm just surprised they're still using Flash 8. I'd figure they'd just upgrade to the latest version of Flash, and avoid the learning curve.

    Needless to say, it's great to hear that the movie will have better than the show. I hate when animated movies based on cartoons have the same quality of animation but they just throw in a little extra shading effects or few CG scenes and call it a day.

    I hope Discord is not involved heavily in the plot. I can just not see the movie if he is but that would be a shame.
