My Little Pony: Equestria Girls Movie Trailer

I like Friendship is Magic, I really do, but I never asked myself “what would the show be like if it took place in the human world and stared humans, not ponies?”. While I am not shouting “BETRAYAL” from the top of my lungs, ala The Spoony One, I am definitely concerned.

My Little PrecureWhen I thought of human versions of the ponies, I always pictured something like this. Also, we already got a human version of Friendship is Magic.

My Little Precure 2So why would we need another?

Still, I do plan on watching (and possibly reviewing) the movie. Who knows? Maybe there won’t be anything to worry about.

    I watched this preview thinking I’d turn it off in horror but I can actually dig the animation for the human forms, unlike the God awful Teen Titans remake. Sadly it’s not anime style, which would be much cooler, but it’s tolerable. It’s Monster High-ish minus the CGI. I can see why they’re doing something like this with all the fanart/fanfic turning the ponies into human girls and trying to appeal to that grouping of fans. I will be taking my little one to see this movie as it will entertain her quite a lot since she loves the show.

      I, of course, will also go see this film. Whether it’s good or not remains to be seen. Hmm, so Teen Titans Go is not very good, is it? I haven’t seen it yet but I do not like the art style either.

      I’ve been wondering, is Monster High healthy for girls, or is as hazardous to their health?

        I’ve seen 2 of the Monster High Movies with my daughter and it pretty much deals with preteen/teenager stuff like love lives, teaching about discrimination not being a good thing, and making friends. That’s the jist I got from it. The Teen Titans Go makes a mockery of the personalities from the original. They make Raven out to be stupid IMO from the preview. I’ll stick to the original which by far out weighs this new piece of crap.

      So it’s basically a school life show with demon girls. Hmm, at least it’s harmless.

      I’ll probably TTG out when it inevitably airs on Cartoon Network LA. I’ll see for myself how bad it is.

  2. Do fans like the series because they’re ponies? I thought the genuinely good series attracted more bronies. As long as the writing is interesting, I’ll have nothing to complain about. I’m excited to see how this will turn out.

    The skin colour is a little off putting, but I guess it’s not bad to keep the same style. I always imagined regular humans with similar traits or clothes.

      It’s because of the writing but fanboys are yelling betrayal from the top of their lungs that they’re doing something different. After all, fanboys’ greatest kryptonite is change.

      I agree that the writing is what made the show great, it’s just that I cannot help but be a bit worried about what the plot will be like. It had better be the same quality we have seen from the series in the first two seasons. The third…ehhhh. Anyway, I’ll definitely see it and maybe even review it.

    I’m looking forward to seeing Equestria Girls actually. Even if it does turn out bad, it’ll at least be an…experience =P It’s funny because back when the first pictures of EG came out (before anyone knew it was a movie or what its plot was), I felt like I was the only one who thought it would tie into the Friendship is Magic storyline somehow. Everyone else seemed to be thinking/hoping it would be totally separate from it but just happened to use the same characters. However, here we are now and it will indeed be related to the FiM saga, but a side story that probably won’t follow into the continuity of season 4…probably =P I can’t say the trailer makes it look especially good, but the fact that the same writers who worked on the TV series wrote it, I definitely think it has the potential to be good. But I won’t judge it until I’ve actually seen it 😉 I’m really glad the ponies look more like humans in the actual movie rather than the weird human+pony hybrids we’ve been seeing in the promo art.

    If you do review the movie, I look forward to reading it. I may write a review on my blog, too. We’ll see.

      My Little Centaurs would have been awesome imo. You are right. We do not know whether the movie will be good or not. All we can do for now is wait and see. Bashing the movie before it even premieres is usually not the right decision…unless the movie is by Michael Bay or Uwe Bowl.
