Discussion

SDCC just happened! And there was an MLP panel! Alca7raz and Nemesis take a look at the information presented. Even though there wasn’t much. A few small tidbits of info about season 6 (will Sunset actually show up? Nemesis hopes so) and one bit of news about the 2017 movie.

But there was also a trailer for Legend of Everfree! That is what they centered most of their discussion on. Mostly speculation about what little details they picked out of it. Do you think they got it right? Did they miss something? Contact them!
