‘Equestria Girls’, a My Little Pony offshoot, will have a movie-length premiere’
WTF is that.
Seriously, I’m not sure what they are supposed to be. I guess they are half pony/half human but they look there is a bit of feline in there as well.
When fans say they try to figure out which pony they are most like, they are not imagining the ponies in a human form, but in the ADORABLE PONY FORM!
This is some kind of abomination.
(Also, should we even start in on the super-tiny wastes and the fact that this form makes them easier to sexualize? Yeah, let’s just not go there right now).
And what is Hasbro thinking in terms of marketing? Are these going to be creepy Barbie doll style toys? Do they really think teens will watch this? Who is the market? This is not for the “Bronies” or the “Pegasisters”.
**sigh** someone at Hasbro clearly does not understand the appeal of MLP:FiM. It’s adorable and cute and they are ponies in adventures. I do not understand this current TV trope of aging up the characters into tween/teen form. It just creeps me out.
I hope this bombs and I hope it bombs hard.
