It doesn't bother me so much. I might watch it when it airs on TV in the fall, just out of curiosity.

I just hope its not acknowledged 'in canon' in season 4. I don't want this 'portal to an amazing technicolor population' to be a thing in the series.

Wow...that actually hurt my teeth. Seriously, is there some concentrated effort going on to make pony awful, cause that seems to be the agenda... I mean, yeah, I know it's probably an effort to start selling Bratz-like dolls but...I mean, really?

Either way, somepony tell me once it comes out if it's terrible or not. If not, I'll try and get through it, if so, I'll just avoid it.

I didn't have a headache before I watched that trailer. I do now. And I don't mean a metaphorical headache.

This is pretty much it. They're going to be selling fashion dolls for the tween girl market, and coat-tailing it onto the MLP franchise because it's an already established brand. To toy company executives, it's practically win-win.

That's not really such a terrible thing, though, as all businesses are ultimately in the business of making money, but I do admit that it's a bit of a strange concept to bring to the series.

Ahahahaha.
Dropped.

Also, it won't be tacked on to the show at all from what Megan MCarthy said, so no worries here.

What I don't understand is this: If it's -really- about just selling toys, then wouldn't the prudent move on Hasbro's part have been to start making toys that cater to the fan market? I mean, they put out MLP G3 games on the DS system (not a GOOD one, but still) so wouldn't it have made more sense to release show-accurate toys that fans were asking for? Trixie and Ditzy and Chrysalis coming out two years ago instead of two years too late? I guess that's why I'm not an executive though.

I think that this is a very strange concept... but I for one am interested in seeing how it all works. It looks entertaining, I think!
Especially if it isn't a concept that will be considered canon in the show's future episodes, it will be interesting to see.
Human. Ponies. And it looks like that (kinda) cute guy with the bluer hair is kind of like Soarin... and the mean girl looks a weensy bit like Spitfire. Maybe I'm making connections that aren't actually there.

Bet Lyra's jealous, though.

Hmm... It looks rather interesting. I won't say that it will be amazing but it doesn't look awful. I'll watch it, for sure, in hopes that it'll be fun~

Okay I finally did watch the movie, and no. I have no idea whether we should includes any Equestria element in our roleplay. (Yes, people are already asking)

We will make a decision later when more people have had the chance to watch it.

Also Spoiler alert:
Spoiler: show
It isn't the worst thing ever.

I haven't seen the movie yet, and most likely won't until it's on TV this fall.

What purpose would be served from having a portal like that? Read below for spoilers.

Spoiler: show
Apparently it only opens for a few days ever 2-3 years or so (30 moons), which means even if we do include it in the roleplay here it won't be accessible for some time. Why bother one way or the other?

In my opinion we shouldn't include the portal

Spoiler: show
but since every character in the show have a parallel copy in both Pony Equestria and EG's world, it is reasonable to conclude that you can just play the pony version of some of the human in there.

Of course, there really is only two noticeable one. And one of them is already confirmed to be in the normal Equestria world, the other one is stuck in EG's world.
