So I thought this deserved its own thread

http://www.equestriadaily.com/2013/02/mlp-spin-off-series-confirmed-rumor.html

So, ponies as humans. Thoughts?

Their skin looks kind of creepy, but hopefully that image is not legit.

I'll wait to hear more before I pass any real judgement on it. But the idea could work

Frankly, I just can't bring myself to care about it.

I'm actually feeling kind of annoyed. I've been under the impression that this spin-off is the same sort of thing that Faust wanted to originally do with FiM (the whole action adventure thing). But because Hasbro can't stop sh*tting themselves over having their innocent pony image tarnished... just make a new IP and turn them human! (well, human-ish). Problem solved.

[spoiler] *shrug*

I dunno. I'm trying to care about it, but just... can't.

Human Ponies? I think I'm going to pass.
#8 Posted by kierwinyoung (3147 posts) -

Very Interesting, lol, I'm guessing the theme will be the full version of their song Equestria Girls. But let's not judge it by rumors and stuff, I think we need to give 'em a chance.

somehow their skin would be better if it's human colored skins.

and am I the only one who got the feeling that bronies has something to do with it?

Apparently this is going to be the movie. The first few minutes will start with them as ponies, then they'll be magically transported to creepy humanized pony high school. Disappointing. At least it won't affect the main series.

N33d is right. This isn't the movie.

Yeah. I believe the movie will actually related to FiM and wont have anything to do with the spin-off... or so I'm led to believe.

Hasbro said that there was a new pony movie and a new ip.

The new ip is equestria girls.

Besides, metroid said that the movie was releasing this fall and equestria girls is supposed to air this spring.

It's both. The movie leads into a spin off tv show.

#16 Posted by MetroidPrimePwn (12399 posts) -
I can't really describe my levels of "don't want" here, but then I have to remember that I'm not really the target audience for like the whole concept of the show, so I guess I should just consider myself lucky that I have three (soon to be four) seasons of a show I really enjoy.

In the announcement video, the guy mentions the new IP and then says, "We're gonna launch it with a made-for-TV movie".

He explicitly said they were launching the new IP (Equestria Girls) with a made for-for-tv-movie. How could the made-for-tv-movie possibly be anything other than Equestria Girls?

They could launch together, but not tie in.

They will be two separate shows irregardless. But I believe the tie-in thing was just a rumor. I'm not sure, the person who told me has been right about everything else though.

Upon closer inspection, their cutie marks appear to be on a single cheek (of their face, that is...). Oh lawd.

Makes sense for Fluttershy, She's a bad flyer anyway, but RD would be more appropriate if she wears either short or a jogging pants.

Not a whole lot about it makes sense. Looks like she has some sort of shorts under the skirt though.

Well, if she's going to be flying a lot. And heaven forbid the artists differentiate the models a little, or just don't use the exact same one for every character,

No word on that, but I don't think so. None of the VA's have mentioned working on it. Confirmed that none of the MLP writers are on board though.

Hopefully Princess Luna is not in this. Though I might watch it at least once see if it is actually bad or not, still don't care for the character designs.

I won't pass official judgment until I see one of two episodes (maybe). But yes, RD in particular looks terrible.

It's kind of funny, I actually preferred them in the first picture...
