That's not just fanart?

Also, (S3E13 spoiler),
Spoiler: show
isn't your picture itself a S3E13 spoiler given a certain something it shows?

Also, why do they still have horse ears?

Bit odd that the pegasi retain wings but the unicorns don't retain their horns.

That's their hair. It sure does look like a tail, though.

That image should probably be spoilered. I haven't seen any of S3 bar "Too Many Pinkie Pies"

Sorry, was pretty tired when I posted it last night and didn't give it a second thought. A thousand apologies, Kairne.


Thoughts:


As far as I can tell, they revamped the style from the leaked image and went with the more.... anthro look as opposed tot he human one. Horse ears, wings, REALLY long hair that is braided at the end to look like a tail, and yeah. My biggest complaint in the style is the cutie marks on the cheeks, WHY? Otherwise, I'm not going to lie, this design is much better than the leaked concept art even if it is less humanized.


Yes, it is real and official. This was posted in an article in the NYTimes yesterday that was talking about how Hasbro is changing up a few of their franchises (like Transformers Beast Hunters).

Oh, and it is officially called Equestria Girls, too. Might need to add "Equestria Girls" into the thread's title when it premiers, assuming any of us will actually like it.

Man, I am so overdue posting in this thread again. I'm completely up to date except for Discord's Redemption, which I ABSOLUTELY REFUSE to watch

Final 3 Episodes: I sort of liked "Just For Sidekicks", plenty of cute moments, and I actually laughed a few times, though I found Spike rather unsympathetic. "The Games Ponies Play" had some really good moments, but not as good an episode as the previous one. I do enjoy the fact that these two episodes were the same situation but from different points of view

As for the Finale? I rather enjoyed it. I was jarred by the number of songs but there were some really funny moments, such as the already mentioned Pinkie Spittake gag, and so much D'awwww overall!

I personally feel Season 3 has lacked the charm of the first two seasons, but I'm eager to see what they have in store for us in Season 4

You know what's stupid? When Pinkie swung by on a swing clearly attached to nothing, I actually questioned it. You'd think I'd know better by now

Spoiler: show

Celestia singing was a REAL treat! I didn't think we'd ever get that!

When I first heard Twilight was officially becoming an Alicorn, I was worried. I didn't know how this would effect the shows overall dynamic. Then I heard official word that Twilight's personality was unchanged, and her role in the show is only slightly altered. I was very reassured by this

I see people bitching about Alicorn Twilight saying: "She's a Mary Sue now!" and that she's going to start ignoring her friends, and I lose what little faith I have left in the fanbase. Again and again I'm reminded of why the human race is unworthy of this masterpiece

Twilight has never been a Mary Sue, she's always been a complex, well-developed, and very likeable character. She is not only my favorite character in the show, she'd have to be my favorite fictional character period. Since her personality is unchanged, I have no issue with her becoming an Alicorn

When Twilight was in that other realm, I expected Starswirl himself to show up and congratulate Twilight on her success. Man, talk about a Missed Moment of Awesome

Twilight ignoring her friends? When she stepped out to address her subjects, she waved her friends over to share the spotlight and credited them for all she's learned. I think it's quite obvious the Twilight we know and love is still here

Twilight has always been one of the most well loved, if not THE most well loved, member of the Mane Six according to multiple polls I've seen, including the Fandom-Wide survey where over 1,000 people particpated. It looks like Alicorn Twilight is going to put a serious dent in that, but hopefully Season 4 will soothe things over

EDIT: Oops, the survey wasn't on Equestria Daily, my mistake ^_^;;;

Meghan McCarthy: "Trixie taking over for Twilight? No. Just. No."

*Thanks Celestia for this small favor.*
*Is Celestia's undeserving servant*


On a completely unrelated note, I came up with this earlier today. Simple, but I like how well it works:

Discord: "Now, if you'll excuse me, I have some Chaos to wreak!" >=D
Big Macintosh: "Eenope!" >=O *Charges*
Discord: "No!" O_O

So I saw this as an alternate ending to the episode "Spike at Your Service" and I thought it might actually be a better ending the show could have taken. I wasn't aware but apparently a lot of people have grievances with Spike being out of character in this episode because he basically blew off Twilight for his "dragon code" and didn't give it a second thought. I had never even really though about that that way before, but regardless. I think this ending is much better (albeit maybe a little over the top):

You weren't aware, huh? Well. Guess that means you didn't bother reading this.

Yeah, that started off fine but then by the end was a definite save to the hard drive. That would have been a much, much better way for that episode to have ended. I still thought the whole "dragon code" thing was bullshit, and the annoying out-of-character garbage still would've happened, but at least an ending like that one would have resolved it much better than the real episode did.

Derp. I definitely read that when you wrote it, I must have just had my mind somewhere else or else I totally forgot.

Oh, and...




Then again, Meghan is the queen of overhyping things, so we'll see.

Hello~ Just another pegasister passing through.

I personally loved the last episode. Thought it was a beautiful transition for Twilight, and it was sad to see all the characters in such a state. It was inspiring how they overcame it though. Looking forward to seeing how things go from here.

One thing I wish would've happened though:

Spoiler: show
Fluttershy should've used THE STARE.


The designs for Equestria Girls are kinda weird, but will wait to pass judgment until it airs.

Even if equine lifespans are hundreds of years, Granny Smith has aged and Celestia hasn't- so eventually Twilight would lose all of her friends. Hopefully in the series finale everyone becomes a princess so that can be avoided, but it is a valid concern in the meantime.
What about...

Spoiler: show
Princess Cadence? Although I hear Ms. Faust didn't intend her to be an alicorn originally. They probably just made her that way so they could perform the ring ceremony.

Except he got very upset when he couldn't remember Fluttershy's name or what all the cutie marks for each of the characters were D:

But then I saved the day with my (rather limited) pre-existing knowledge of MLP: FiM from Muyo/ABL/the few episodes I've seen/this thread.

So best school day ever really.

I know this is pretty irrelevant to this thread as I don't really watch the show, but I wanted to share my little MLP moment~

Not to mention it's great that even a boy his age can enjoy it as well.

That was a wonderful story. ^_^ Thanks for sharing.

That...was beautiful. It was completely true, and wonderfully in character.

It would have saved us an entire episode of Spike being uncharacteristically incompetent, and Twilight being uncharacteristically fearful and bad at planning

Spike as a dog would be pretty weird. I pictured him as a dorky kid who always follows Twilight around. XD
