514 – My Little Pwny

514 – My Little Pwny

I’m sure I’m not the first to think of this.

For those of you who do not follow the MLP fandom, there is a movie coming out called Equestria Girls, trailer linked here. It is a legit Hasbro thing, and it’s the reason Season 3 had half the episodes (they were concurrently working on the movie). For those of you who are missing the direct reference above, you wanna go here and skip ahead to about 15:11. (If you are not caught up on Season 3, this is kind of spoilerific.)

I find it rather peculiar that a fandom based on tolerance and love has reacted so negatively towards another project in a similar line. Sure, it’s not the direction we thought they’d go, but I’m all up for any new direction an artist wants to take, so I’m willing to give it a try. (I’m also aware it’s not the entire fandom that’s opposed to this, but it’s still a surprising number. I bet the actual target audience either doesn’t care or is looking forward to their Twilight Sparkle Bratz dolls.)

    I dunno, I think I’m, Penny on this one… Nobody I know wants to go see it with me T_T
    On top of that, I live in Middle of Nowhere, New York, so it’s a two hour drive just to get to the closest theater.
    HAAAASSBBBRRRROOOOOOOO!!!!!!!

  3. UP says:

    Oh hey now, I initially didnt give a chance based on the horrid initial designs. You know the ones with humans but with freaking wings, horns, tails and cutiemarks on faces.

    Based on the trailer, it looks much more decent now. Will watch…but not in a movie theatre…

    They’re still making My Little Pony‽ Wow! I remember it starting back in the eighties. My little cousin was into them (well, she was only young) but I was old enough to see how crap it was. I can’t believe they’re still making such nauseating, sickly sweet rubbish after all these years! You’d think the people working on it would’ve had more than anyone can stand by now!

  5. Spike the Dragon Knight says:

    I was okay with it until I thought about how my relationship with the other sidekicks is gonna change. Seriously, am I really on the same level as Winona?

  6. Mr. Torgue says:

    @Spike the Dragon Knight

    WHO KNOWS SPIKE!!?? ҉ ҉

    MAYBE THIS WILL BE YOUR TIME TO SHINE…..AND TO MAKE EXPLOSIONS!!! ҉ ҉

    It is quite alright, Spike, at least in our world you have already won the heart of the fair maiden you pine after.

    Also, that alt text: WE SHALL LOVE AND TOLERATE THE S**T OUT OF YOU FOR BESMIRCHING THE TITLE OF “BEST PRINCESS”, WITH PRINCESS MI AMORE CADENZA. FOR IT IS CLEARLY WE, LUNA, PRINCESS OF THE NIGHT, WHO IS BEST PRINCESS. WE ARE UNSURE IF SHE EVEN /HAS/ ENOUGH VOLUME TO SPEAK TO HER CITIZENRY AS A ROYAL.
    Your choice of Fluttershy is most commendable, she is a strong, graceful and loving mare with a great host of fine qualities.
    Very well. We shall commute your sentence from twelve fortnights banishment to the moon. But only because Fluttershy asked.

  8. MrGBH says:

    I’m going to be giving it a chance. After all, most people thought MLP:FiM would be rubbish as well, including myself. I have never been happier to be proven wrong.
    (And Luna is best Princess. Anything else is just absurd).

  9. Spike the Dragon Knight says:

    @Mr. Torgue

    If I explode what are the chances that I will explode again?

  10. Princess Luna says:

    @Spike
    Fear not, dear citizen. In all our years we hath only ever heard of five individuals exploding a number greater than one time. Each in turn exploded intentionally, so cast aside thine fears, young dragon, your fear of exploding shall save you this day.

  11. Mr. Torgue says:

    @Spike the Dragon Knight

    DON’T WORRY LITTLE GUY!! WITH THAT FIRE BREATH OF YOURS, YOU CAN MAKE ALL THE EXPLOSIONS YOU WANT!! ҉ ҉

    @Princess Luna

    LEAVE SPIKE ALONE!! ҉ ҉

    IF HE WANTS TO EXPLODE…..LET HIM!! ҉ ҉

  12. Princess Luna says:

    @ Mr. Torgue
    We have seen, deep within his dreams, what Spike, the Great Heart fears most. And our apologies to you, good Sir Torgue, but we have seen only three things brave Spike fears more than exploding.
    His third greatest fear is zombie ponies… We have no comment on this one as it may do more harm than good.
    The second greatest fear is an individual locating his stores of lost buttons. We are more confused about this one than concerned, he DID hide it extraordinarily well.
    And lastly his greatest fear is abandonment, which we are unashamed to say is our own.

    @Princess Luna

    1) ZOMBIE PONIES!!?? ҉ ҉

    DO THOSE THINGS CRAVE BRAINS…OR HAY!!?? ҉ ҉

    2) SPIKE COLLECTS BUTTONS!!??

    HE SHOULD COLLECT EXPLOSIONS!! ҉ ҉

    3) ABANDONMENT!!?? ҉ ҉

    I KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN!! ҉ ҉

    I WAS ABANDONED BY MY DAD!! ҉ ҉

    ALCOHOLISM DESTROYS FAMILIES!! ҉ ҉

    Oh hey, I’ve been busy, finally seeing this.
    But… Luna is best princess. End of story.
