Seven years after the launching of the franchise's current iteration, thirty-one years after the theatrical animated movie based on the first incarnation of the franchise, My Little Pony: The Movie is coming, and the new trailer is here...
Well, I will say... It's very pretty-looking. Some of the art direction showcased in this trailer was quite nice, beautiful even... and the animation doesn't seem too bad for an upscaling of a Flash show. It is also admittedly nice to see something coming to theaters that isn't a computer animated feature that's trying so hard to look just like real life. Yeah, animation that isn't an exact recreation of real life, novel concept!
Content-wise, it looks cute enough. I admittedly haven't seen too much of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, because I just... I'm gonna be honest, guys, I couldn't really get into it. That being said, I totally respect its fanbase and the love many adults have for it. I'm glad that something speaks to someone in some way, no matter what it is. Is the show mainly aimed at 6-year-old girls? Maybe, I don't really care, if folks love it and aren't harming anyone, what's the fuss? I extend that to pretty anything that will get you picked on in some way. I myself, however, never really got into it. Plenty of folk outside our circles, you guessed it, still don't get it.
Anyways, My Little Pony: The Movie looks like it could be a pleasant diversion, maybe it's much more, I don't know. I just find it kind of funny that it and the 1986 movie share the same exact name... My Little Pony: The Movie. Which one?
What say you on this trailer?
