» Equestria Girls Trailer and Details


An article by the New York Times has revealed a lot of new information about the upcoming cinema screening of My Little Pony: Equestria Girls.

“Our goal is to stay true to who those characters are,” said Meghan McCarthy, the head writer for the movie, adding that the high school setting allowed for new storytelling possibilities. “It’s new but still an extension of our mythology.”

While a trailer has also been released, which can be viewed here. Or below:

  1. This trailer was honestly kind of enjoyable…I’ve always had an open-minded viewpoint on EQ — no, if I had my way, this wouldn’t have come about in the first place, but it’s already here, and we all definitely could benefit from keeping an open-mind about something we’ve never seen before, then ranting about how the series has jumped the shark, which is ridiculous.

    The animation is kind of funny….I’ll probably get used to it, but it’s just funny — It certainly looks better then the concept art we’ve seen before, but everything just looks…weird: I wish I could say something more then that. I probably just haven’t gotten used to it yet.

    Spike being a dog….ugh, I’m not surprised – they could have made him a little brother (son, I doubt they’d go *that* route), but it would open up too many questions that I doubt they would want to go into. It certainly doesn’t portray his character in a good way *at all*, but I can’t say that I’m surprised.

    I wish I could recognize more characters…we see Snips and Snails trying to get the crown (no GP&T? I was hoping she’d be the rich popular snobby girl here or something XD), Vinyl is obvious…but no more ponies that I recognize :(. The boy in blue is most likely Shining Armor, though if Twilight eventually becomes the Prom Queen, it *would* be weird she were with her brother….makes me wonder if she’ll start to like this guy, leaves, and meets with his pony version back in Equestria.

    The biggest surprise was Sunset Shimmer, as the human villain presumably…however, if it *is* her, it makes me wonder: how is she still in High School? Even if she were directly Celestia’s last apprentice, it’s been at least 20 years or so since then….then again, the idea that Twilight herself is integrating so swiftly into High School maybe that she herself isn’t in college-aged like some believe. When it comes to age, it’s probably one of those pedantic things we aren’t supposed to think on too much…still, something I noticed. In any case, hopefully there is a satisfying reason for her being there for so long.

  2. What’s a guy gotta do to have some civilized discussion around here? Hey, this looks nice…

    Anyway, I have to say that given what I’ve seen, there’s really nothing that’s making me write this off as “bad”, but alo nothing to get me that excited. All things considered, that trailer was pretty enjoyable, but there are a number of things I’m cautious about, most of them regarding how they execute the concept of Twilight, a pony, turning into a human.
    Also, regarding “that guy”, I’m not ruling out the possibility that he’s actually Shining Armor.

    Also, the thing that worries me the most is the number of bronies that are gonna hate on this right off the bat because “it’s too girly” and the amount of flack that bronies as a whole are going to catch from non-bronies because of it.

    • There is a bunch of discussion on our forums (click the link up top) which is mostly civilized. It’ll calm down in a few days after the initial reaction anyway.

  3. I see Equestrian Snips and Snails and all I can think is “GET SWOLE” and “BURGER WING.”
