Equestria Girls Synopsis Expanded - Via Book Version

So yeah, this. Frankly... I have no idea what to think of it, except for maybe this. I'm gonna watch EG anyway, because curiosity, but this sounds like a pretty far fetched and forced way to link it with FiM, I would've prefered if the two stayed separate (as much as that'd be possible). It also raises question, when in the show's timeline it's gonna be set? Derpy Hooves

Your opinionz? Twilight crazy

I'm not going to judge anything until it comes out, but so far I don't have very high hopes of it. The premise seems shallow and the character design is god awful. It's like an ungodly halfway point between ponies and anthro. It just doesn't look right to me.

I hope it's just a simple money grab that doesn't impact the show at all.

So, trailer just popped out. Spike
Equestria Girls Trailer:
All in all, I think it has potential not to be bad... If they avoid certain stereotypical stuff which one youtube comment sums up (some of it) quite nicely:
1) High school drama.
2) Twilight falling head over heels for some guy.
3) (If Twilight really does have a love interest) One of the main 6 liking him as well, which I guess can fall under high school drama as well.
4) Teen stereotypes.

That's my verdict for now, we'll see after the movie. Twilight crazy

EDIT: I'm also kinda skeptic about the statement by Hasbro about EG:
“We are responding to the desire by our fans to experience the brand in more ways,” said John A. Frascotti, Hasbro’s chief marketing officer. “They imagined themselves as which pony they would be or which pony they identified with the most.”

I think that vast majority of fans can say (In Adam Jensen's voice) "I never asked for this.". And we can safely assume that these "fans" are the minority, aka the actual target audience.

I'm confident it will be decent. The show's writing is give and take, and I expect as much from this movie. I wonder what the alicorns will be? The principle, school administrator and councillor? Or would their status as gods prevent them from having equivalents?
I'm not so sure Hasbro actually got those "desires" you mention communicated. It sounds more like they just misinterpreted what they precieved as our desires.
I mean, humanized ponies are popular.
If they picked up on that, how long until the show has socks and juice boxes?

I look forward to an ending scene straight out of wizard of oz.
Twilight: My friends, the other world was so strange! But you were there! And you were there! And you were there!
Spike: Was I there, Twilight?
Twilight: You were a dog.
Spike: ...ah.

It's funny to think how, in the MLP world, Spike often seems to exist on the same social tier as the other ponies' pets, but now they're making it official XD

I honestly don't know what to think of if.
The character designs were the thing that pissed me off the most at first (when they had wings, pony ears, and ponytail... tails), but these honestly don't seem so bad.
I don't love it, but I also don't hate it.

So, I don't know what think of this, but I have a bit more confidence that this will be done well than I originally did.

Still not going to pay to watch it though.

I'll reserve judgement until I see it, and I'm probably not going to see it until it shows up on TV one day, or somewhere online.

If they're really serious about it coming to theaters and shows up in one near by I'll probably try to drag some friends to make fun of it at the dollar theater since it usually plays movies after the bigger theaters finish showing them.

Well, if anyone's interested, the reviews are here. Apparently the movie indeed isn't "absolutely terrible" as almost everyone predicted. Why doesn't it surprise me? Spike

If someone can't go to the cinema to see it, but doesn't want to wait till the DVDs are out either, here's a link to somewhat good quality cam rip of Equestria Girls.
Watching it now, not bed so far. Twilight crazy

I watched it online a few days ago, and I thought it was pretty good.
It reminded me a lot about how I felt when I first watched the pilot episodes of FiM.

Spoiler:
Yeah, well... There were a few references to that. Spike
All in all, there were a few awkward scenes that I think didn't work out (for me) as they were meant to, but other than that is was pretty good.
My only hope is that they won't continue the Twi romance (or won't make it too serious business). Aside from Spike's infatuation with Rarity I'd like to keep it Friendship-Only. Leave it to fans to ship the shit out of the characters. Twilight crazy

I think they already said that that character won't be appearing in Season 4.

I saw it ages ago. The biggest problem with it is that it falls into the trope called "idiot plot". I give the movie a 7 out of 10, cause the who conflict in the movie revolves around hitting everyone with the idiot stick over and over until the conflict is finally resolved.

I didn't like it cause of how many times twilight was acting like a idiot was painful, but it wasn't that bad of a movie.

If twilight didn't act like a idiot then the movie would have never happened cause she would have known better than to wear the most powerful item in their world as her bling.
