Almost immediately, the fandom jumped on this seemingly out-of-place addition to the franchise. Worrying that it would just make it look even more appealing to furries, some already claimed that the movie was "ruined forever" when combined with the two edgy characters. Others pointed out some similar characters in fiction:
|His most direct inspiration, from British sci-fi sitcom Red Dwarf?|
|At least they followed the rule|
|And then Hasbro got sued|
Some have pointed out that a cat species existed in G1, with characters like Katrina. However, this did not quiet concerns of an ill-fitting species into the movie, or attracting furries. Given February's tendency to continuously erupt in drama, we can only guess what will come next.
M.A Larson wasted no time in letting CapperGeneral know, and his response was pretty much what anyone in his position would make.
And here we have a bunch of other actors and characters that are due to be in the movie. Make of these what you will, and fire up those fanfictions and doomsday prophecies, because it's happening!
