Follow Meghan McCarthy On Twitter

Hey Ponies….We try to offer you legitimate news or cool things as they become available in the My Little Pony universe. But somehow we missed this fun little Twitter conversation from last week with the one and only Meghan McCarthy. It’s all about Season 4…So you know….obviously you’re gonna wanna read this…like now.

Question: Anything cool planned for the CMC in S4?”
McCarthy: Yes!

Question: A lot of Bronies are upset about Alicorn Twilight. Without giving anything away, do you think S4 will keep everyone happy?”
McCarthy: Yes!

Question: Are you tired of working on and talking about ponies?”
McCarthy: Never!

Question: Will we ever see Rarity as the central character again? She stole every scene/episode she was in this season….”
McCarthy: Yes!

Question: Any chance Spike will get as much awesome moments/love in season 4 as he did (if not, more than) in season 3?”
McCarthy: Yep.

Question: Will Fluttershy be a main focus in more episodes?
McCarthy: Yep.

Question: Any big musical numbers planned for the next season? ‘ This Day Aria was amazing!”
McCarthy: Yes. So excited about S4 music.

Question: Will we be introduced to new characters?”
McCarthy: Yep. Some really good ones.

Question: plan on adding in more pop-culture references throughout S4?
McCarthy: Definitely

Question: Thoughts on pacing? Are you continuing the “epic” tone in S3 or are you planning on slowing it back down at all?”
McCarthy: Both

Question: Are there going to be any Slice-of-Life episodes in S4?”
McCarthy: Lots

Question: How has it been working on S4 so far compared to S3 & 2? Was it ever overwhelming previously?”
McCarthy: Less overwhelming than S3

Question: any new writers for the series?”
McCarthy: Yes

Question: Coming to EFNW?” (Also Bronycon and Nightmare Nights)
McCarthy: If they invite me 🙂

Question: Will we see more of Rarity’s generosity in S4?”
McCarthy: Yes

Question: Any chance of us finding out more about Equestrian history?”
McCarthy: Yes

Question: if you were to describe season 4 in 1 word what would that word be?”
McCarthy: Ambitious

Question: Will we get to see any more members of the Mane 6’s families?”
McCarthy: Yes

Question: How would you describe the overall tone of S4? Will the focus be greater on drama, humor, or adventure?”
McCarthy: Packed w/ all 3

Question: What’s your personal favorite episode you’ve written? And by extension what’s your fav #MLPFiM ep?”
McCarthy: Hasn’t aired yet

Question: Will Daniel Ingram still be doing lots and lots of awesome songs for us to remix in season 4?”
McCarthy: Lots and lots and lots and lots

Question: Better question. Despite Twilight’s new status she’ll still have flaws and a lot of room for personal growth in S4 yes?”
McCarthy: Yes

Question: How many more Alicorns should we be expecting?”
McCarthy: 53

    I have a S4 question:
    Will we see more of Princess Luna, and will it be more than in just one episode and a few cameos?

    I find her answers incredibly vague and thus it is hard to tell what she is actually thinking, or whether what’s REALLY going on S4 is what she wants us to believe. I have my fingers crossed and I’m not ready to completely distrust her. I’m sure that I will enjoy it to some degree, just as I did with Season 3 (yeah I liked it, what about it?). But I’m not THAAAT excited, nor do I think it will be as breath-taking as she wants us to expect.

    WOW! 53 alicorns!? That’s a lot! I’m so excited for Season 4. I do have a question, though; Will one of the episodes of season 4 be focusing on the mane background ponies? (Dctor Hooves, Derpy, Lyra, Bonbon, Carrot Top, and Colgate)

    Could you be using some backround ponies as….OCs?! Also, is Derpy REALLY cut out?
