Ok so I'm sure most of you have heard about Equestria Girls. For those who haven't, basically Hasbro are launching a new IP this year with humanoid ponies with a really god awful design lol.
Well now we have more info on this:
When a crown is stolen from the Crystal Empire, Twilight Sparkle pursues the thief into an alternate world where she transforms into a teenage girl who must survive her biggest challenge yet… high school. With help from her new friends who remind her of Ponyville’s Applejack, Rarity, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, and Fluttershy, she embarks upon a quest to find the crown and change the destiny of these two parallel worlds.
Hope you're all ready for high school ponies lol. I've been doing my best thus far to keep an open mind on this, and judge it only after I've seen it. However I really have to say that the fact that the only actual 'pony' there will be twilight and the other mane 6 are just going to be alternate versions of the girls really bugs me. It was almost bearable knowing that all the ponies would be there with their combined history rather than some alternate reality versions of the ponies. It also doesn't explain why the 'humans' have pony coloured coats and wings
So yeah, what are your thoughts??? I'm trying to keep an open mind here, I really am, but d**n Hasbro is making it hard lol
Actually, I feel much more positive about this now I have read what you just wrote. I LOVE alternate realities, parralel universes etc and the Surviving-High-School bit reminds me of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (which I LOVE). The "human" girls have pony attributes because its an alternate reality, not our reality, I would think, LOL. I thought I would just ignore the Equestria Girls thing but now it actually sounds cool!
I will still give it a go, it just bugs me that the girls in it aren't the actual pony girls, just some look a likes. I mean I do love alternate reality stuff (never really liked high school stuff though) but I at least thought that the characters would be in it together so to speak, rather than just doppelgangers lol
I'm strangely a lot more interested in seeing this than season 4. But thats very likely because the season 3 finale still hasn't washed out of my mouth yet...
Even ignoring that I don't see any reason to be worried or dislike this. Seeing so many people deride it when we barely know anything about it is very disheartening, didn't anyone learn anything from FiM?
EDIT: Also heard a rumour that Celestia is the principal. That alone is awesome!
Meh I'm trying to be interested but atm it just sounds like Monster High with pink cupcakes and sugary rainbows.
Just Twilight Sparkle going into the other reality makes me even more meh...she's not my fave character and now she's Princess Twilight Sparkle what's the point? Sorry I'm so negative but it's just not grabbing me. I'm not an avid fan of the FiM series anymore, I watched most of series 1 and it's just been tidbits since then like the Chrysalis/Cadence wedding episodes and the one where Twilight becomes princess. I enjoyed the one where pinkie pie makes lots of pinkie pies in the magic pool but since then its all been...meh

- The girls don't look as bad as the concept art. Glad they lost the face cutie marks. But I stand by my criticism of their body types all being the same, they could have done something new and positive with this but nope! Only thin girls can be pretty. - Every US high school trope ever! - Sunset shimmer! The rumours were correct! :O Snips and Snails are also hanging around in one of the scenes with her, is she the new Trixie? - Spike the dog. Oh dear. - Twilight gets a boyfriend? Soarin'? Some new guy? I actually thought he was Shining armour at first but it's not his cutie mark.
I'm actually now, pretty excited to watch this lol. I just re watched the trailer a couple of times. Apparently most ponies from the show will be in somewhere *prays for human derpy* I agree that the body types are boring, but I actually have some hope for this now lol
It really just looks like ponies in highschool. Which is a prety unrealistic mix, because ponies are all 'Friendship is magic' and highschool is anything but that *LOL* But hey, pony highschool probably is all about rainbows and cupcakes.
I don't see me going out of my way to see this. I'm not a huge fan of FiM anyway, and this is an even bigger step away from my world of ponies.
I really like that trailer, I've been on the edge of EQG but this has made me excited for it. It gives some big new theories for season 4 too
It might go something like this: Sunset Shimmer (celestia's old apprentice as the toy said) went bad and took over this world. She then comes back to Equestria at the end and has to learn the power of friendship! Season 4 has her replace Twilight and Twilight replace Celestia's role
snix: Well, finally bought the plane tickets...¡can´t wait untill october!

sparkler: I think it is fine if you do the rehairing (I think a lot of kids cant do it themselves as it is quite tricky). Not sure if we have rules set in stone for that ;-) In the end it is the fun that counts ;-)

Gaspodé: kids custom contest - do they have to have done it all themselves or can I do the rehair?

hampshirebrony: Instead of my usual "Get everything ready the day before", I fear I'll need to get everything ready at the start of September, and being that organised scares me greatly!

hampshirebrony: I'm still worried that I'm going to be so frazzled in mid-October that I'm going to do autopilot and turn up to PonyCon in greens rather than in cosplay. And that would be a Bad Thing (TM)
