To be honest, I don't really hate it.....yet, I guess. But I don't have an interest in seeing it at all.
One thing that bugs me (besides the designs) is, why don't Twi and Rarity have their horns? I mean, if you're going to add wings, then why not the horns? Did they think they'd look too much like dicks on heads?
Oh but the reactions to this seem to be getting more interesting, both funny and stupid.
I saw one comment on EQD that said that this will be the type of infamous spin-off/adaption/sequel the fandom hates or cringes at, Like with the Avatar fandom and The Last Airbender, the Dragon Ball fandom and Dragonball Evolution, and the Star Wars fandom and the Star Wars Christmas special. lol, XD
But some stupid comments I see are like "U guys love anthro and humanized pwniez all the time and now Ur mad about this??." And it's like, what? Just because you enjoy a certain aspect of fan content doesn't mean you want to see it canon. And it just goes to show, with the large number of people already criticizing this. That's like I want to see Pinkie brutally murder the fuck out of Rainbow Dash because I loved Cupcakes.
As I agree with you with the Idea that I cannot hate it unless I see it, It is a good point about the horns and wings.
So Im guessing that in the other universe everyone will have the same things, Horns and Wings because of not that would be bullshit, or they will give us a Deus ex machina like the Twilight princess(yes I still dont agree with the idea but I accepted it)?.
And something that bothers me is that they look rather similar( but not the same) as the characters of Milky Way and the Galaxy girls, Maybe is just me but I swear to good they looks similar except in a few aspects.
Im not sure of they are going the right way with this. Specially with a Movie And I know a movie would be more likely to be denied by a Fandom (like the bad Star trek movies or Star Wars Christmas special or JESUS GOD SAVE US The last Airbender movie).
Im not sure Faust is involved at all on this project or at least that is what her IMDb says.
Yeah im not really looking forward to see it at least on the big screen, dont get me wrong if they made a movie with the regular characters i would go but to me this is just a marketing tool to get a new line of toys based (if true hopefully not or that would be a dick move from hasbro) on the galaxy girls idea.
Since they rejected the concept since they already had a license toy(Im glad they did but stealing the idea just to make more toys is kind of dickiss)
I really hope im wrong but the money talks my friend.
Honestly, I'm not a fan of these new developments (Twilicorn and EQG) mostly because of how they were developed and, in Twilicorn's case, executed. Because it seems that the show is turning into one of those lame toy-advertising shows that has little to no effort or thought into it. Was FiM still a advertising show to begin with? Well yes, but a real effort was made to make it enjoyable for everyone. I want it to end before it becomes another SpongeBob, or Simpsons. Classic the first couple of seasons then crap the next. I want it to end so that way it can preserve it's quality that made it so enjoyable and nothing can ruin it.
And besides, 3 seasons and 65 episodes is a good run!
The possibility that I will have anything nice to say about it is slim. I'm sick of mane six exclusivity all over the damn place, so if Spike turns out to be dog like the character designs suggested, it'll be degrading, and if there is no Spike in it at all...well, then there'll be no Spike in it, which is what I want to see much less of. It comes down to whether or not the writers can turn a distasteful premise into something satisfying and entertaining.
The studio has a pretty decent writing crew so I can't help but think that might give it some sort of merit but it's hard for me to even remotely get behind it. Not a fan of the art style. While they do ponies great I have never been able to get behind the bobble head art style for humanoid characters.
However, far more importantly. I have never seen the need to humanize the ponies. Part of the connection is it's a world that is a part. They can get away with things there that would draw negativity or disbelief if it's in a more realistic world. It's entirely what should not be done.
Yeah, i think it's going to be one of those unmentionable money bids that we just don't talk about. Like the Star Wars christmas special. I am NOT going to see it. If I can get a download of it I maybe will watch it but I don't know.
yyyeah, I prefer ponies instead of anthro as well.
That's the confusing part of all this, you risk not garnering a large audience when you introduce a new element or development that most people may not like. If this movie featured the ponies as...well, ponies, then there would be a huge hype for it, increasing its popularity (in a good way). So that way you get a wider audience including both children, teens and adults.
