Gentlemen, this is what children watching Equestria Girls looks like. Note the faces of rapt interest, rather than the visages of horror we like to imagine. A mother reviewed her new DVD of the movie, which can be located here, as well as a raffle for a free Equestria Girls DVD. For those of you who don’t know, this is actually the second raffle we’ve posted; if you would like double the chances at winning a free DVD, then you can head over here to enter another. Good luck!
With the Blu-Ray/DVD combo pack’s impending release to the masses, we may see a few more articles about it, such as this one here. It’s got two tactful (and kinda spoilery, if you really mind) clips to complement their review, and is recommended, though there is some honest negative critique (which I do agree with). Still haven’t seen the movie yet? You don’t need to wait much longer!
Mother of Celestia. Need we say anything more? There’s a short accompanying article; just scroll down until you see the picture shown above (with slightly different numbers, of course) to get a free Equestria Girls DVD!
Would you believe me if I told you it was positive? Well, surprise! It totally is!
Today, we receive a review from Real Mom Reviews on the Twilight Sparkle Equestria Girl. She describes her past as a young girl who loved ponies, then talks about her daughter going on journeys with her new Equestria Girls doll and the matching Twilight Sparkle figurine. Nothing about unrealistic proportions. Nothing about sexifying My Little Pony. This is probably the best review I’ve read in a long, long time.
This is a screencap of what you ought to see when you first load the page. The Hub seems to have finally released the website for Equestria Girls, what with the DVD and Blu-Ray just about to be available for us normal folks to have in our home. There’s a few things you can do there… for example, you can see yourself as a pony. So, worth your time to check out? I mean, maybe if you’re into humans…
So, do you like exclusive videos that include Meghan McCarthy telling us about Equestria Girls? We sure do! Head over here to check out the article and see what the writer has to say on her work, plus some cute clips from the movie.
We are rolling with the anime Equestria Girls theme today. And with that, the Dodge Globe has released an interesting review on the upcoming DVD and Blu Ray version of Equestria Girls. It is rather well written and insightful. Go ahead and give it a look! But there is a small warning: something is wrong with their site, and it will load up with a massive text wall of code. Just scroll down, and you will find the review. Someone should tell them to fix that, though. . . .
Yes, they’re horrifying. Do they cause body image issues among our younger female audience? This mom seems to think so. Perhaps she’s a little overzealous, but these seem to be some fairly legitimate concerns from a number of mothers as of late. I actually recall the community not being very big fans of the character models initially, and some of us likely still aren’t, but… body image issues? I guess that’s for the mothers (and good fathers) to decide.
Sunset Shimmer, your face is looking a little funny today.
So, through diligence and dedication that is somewhat characteristic of our fandom, some pictures of Equestria Girls have been screencapped in the Dash for the Crown flash game that tell a slightly different story than how the movie ended (in respect to the pictures; the story seems to be the same). You can check out the new pictures here on Derpibooru if you’d like, or you can probably play the game yourself and see the slightly different ending with your own eyes. Thanks to slashx for the heads-up and link!
EDIT: The game seems a little bugged right now; some are having trouble loading levels. We’ll let you know if there’s any change.
Comixology has released a few details pertaining to the 2013 Annual Comic that was announced back in May of 2012, which is now available to pre-order. Apparently, this comic is a tie-in with the Equestria Girls movie that was released in theatres. The summary is as follows:
The world of My Little Pony expands in this special oversized Annual. Straight from the new, hit movie Equestria Girls comes all your favorite Ponies like you’ve never seen them before! New Looks, New Friendships, and New Dangers! Join IDW in exploring this brand new tale that ties in closer to Canterlot than you may think!
Sounds promising? Smells like doom? Leave us your thoughts in the comments!
Meanwhile, IDW has also announced an agreement with a company called Madefire to offer ‘motion book’ versions of their popular comics, including My Little Pony. These will be released on Madefire’s iOS app and through their deviantArt channel; there’s no confirmation of when these will be released, but we might hear more at the ComicCon event this weekend.
