Is it wrong to not want to watch fit right in in English after watching the Korean one? :P

...I'm trying to work out how I feel about the clip. It feels less like G4 than the trailer did, but I'm trying to put my finger on what it reminds me of.

I saw an ad on Facebook today that the soundtrack for the movie will be available Friday.

I love Fit Right In and I listen to it a lot on youtube but I only have one issue, and it's this part:

Izzy: This is how a unicorn walks!
Pipp: *struts out*
Me: Okay yes I get it, thumbs up.
Izzy: This is how a unicorn talks!
Zipp: *walks out, says nothing, walks off screen*
Me: Um...?

On Phyllis.

I really didn't like the trailer, it felt trite, boring and that running away clip really bothers me on lots of levels. But this clip felt less like that. I just think it's got some stuff to work on.

It did feel less like a G4 rip, but that may be because Izzy (Pinkie Pie) and Zipp (Rainbow Dash) didn't get any airtime.

Still, at least friendship isn't magic at this point. Which is frankly a relief.

As far as inclusivity, I think it's a bit hard since they are ponies - what I might think of as racism is I guess technically speciesism?  Are earth and unicorns different species?  So would races be different coat colors or something among each species?  But that doesn't seem to be a thing, so I think they are trying to use the pony species as a racial stand-in.
But it's problematic because the different pony species have different abilities, unlike different human races, for the most part. We have yet to have different hair textures in any brushable toys as far as I'm aware, so that's not super-inclusive.  But if they did do that, people might complain because literal horses pretty much all have the same hair?  I would hope not...  And I'm not aware of any amputee ponies or wheelchair-using ponies of any generation, but maybe there have been in the shows but not in the toys?  I was pretty excited when they did the grandma pony in G4 who uses a walker TBH.  Non-visible disabilities or things like that seem particularly hard to depict when so many are on a spectrum, and that wouldn't really show up in a toy one way or another.  Going for inclusivity must be a challenging issue for the folks who plan the shows/toys.  I'm probably reading way too much into this compared to the target audience/toy demigraphic, who might not even relate to the ponies in that kind of way anyway, since they aren't human and are very clearly in a fantasy world.  And there are other inclusivity-type topics I doubt they will ever touch - ponies living in abject poverty or on government assistance or who are homeless, ponies who had abusive/neglectful/absent parents, etc.  All issues loads of kids deal with in real life...but I don't see them ever being shown in a cutesy, fantasy kids show like mlp.

Also just a warning that the movie released in Russia today, and there are camprip's floating around and clips being released on youtube!

This was fun! I smiled at the sight of the boy pony model wearing glitter makeup :)

Has this one been shared? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qqVgSR8NGjo
I'm posting this because of 00:26 => I can't help but think that this moment was created solely per Hasbro's demand, right? You just know there's going to be a toy version of that table :D

Edit: I still can't get over the fact that all these amazing ombre colors on the legs didn't make it to the toys. There are some really beautiful color combos in the Canterlogic clip!

The house with the rose tea table reminds me a lot of the cgi Tinkerbell films.

The white and red pony with the antenna reminds me of Moondancer.

I didn't watch with the volume on.

Phyllis seems like almost every middle aged 1950s stereotype ever put on screen.

I wonder how they got whats-his- face down? I'm kinda imagining a bunch of ponies racing around with something soft, while someone else is using blow darts to pop the balloons.

There's bound to be a reason for this fear. It didn't  spring from nowhere. Perhaps a war that maybe only the oldest members of all societies were present for, that forced a separation between species?

While probably not intentional,  it was interesting that they mentioned  mind-reading unicorns, and I can only think of one who can do it. Dunno if Baby Ribbon ever inherited her mother's gift of telepathy?

I'm very curious about this, too!  As a cynical adult, I'm struggling to think of a kid-friendly explanation... But I'm sure there is one... Right...?

Hasbro doesn't shy away from war in their kid lines. Given they made Transformers and GI Joe.  They may tone it down, but you know.

I think you guys are putting too much thought into the plot. I get the feeling that this movie is aimed at younger kids compared to the demographic for FiM, which was for a bit older kids and had more complex stories.

I think all the pony species split up and live separately now solely because they wanted a "main character brings everyone together" plotline, and in FiM they put enough emphasis on the three different types of ponies that it was logical for a movie follow-up to treat them as entirely different species that live apart.

I would be surprised if we even get a thoughtful explanation on why it happened. If anything, I'll bet it's going to be similar to the FiM Harthswarming Eve episode, where it happened because the three species began arguing and not working together, and then it just got worse.

Perhaps we are. And Hasbro can't do thoughtful handling, if their life depended on it.

While that's certainly the case for the movie's plot, if this turns into a full fledged show they'll have to come up with deeper storylines eventually. It might get fleshed out later on; there's only so much you can do with slice of life. The massive time jump allows for all kinds of yet to explore opportunities.
