Airs: NOVEMBER 10th!! (according to this: family-room.ew.com/2012/10/18/…)

And for those who were curious it DOES look like the whole thing is airing at once. Wonder why Hasbro hates cliffhangers so much. LoL

Directed By: Jayson Thiessen & James Wootie Wooton

Part One Storyboarded By: Tom Sales &  Johnny Castuciano

Part Two Storyboarded By: Raven Molisee & Nicole Wang


Official Synopsises:

"A magical empire has suddenly appeared in the arctic north of Equestria, and PRINCESS CELESTIA needs TWILIGHT SPARKLE and her friends to find a way to protect it. While her friends try to keep the Crystal Ponies occupied at the Crystal Faire, TWILIGHT SPARKLE searches for the hidden Crystal Heart that is the key to keeping their empire safe from harm!"

Um, for some reason, Entertainment Weekly says it'll premiere on Saturday, November 10th. I checked my calendar, and November 10th is a Wednesday. What day will it premiere? I want to tell my dad to DVR it, but I don't want to give him the wrong day of the week.

Is it airing at the same time as Littlest Pet Shop? LPS looks like almost exactly the same show, except with multiple animals instead of just ponies XD

I... don't really know much about LPS. Other than it should be airing *after* the 2-part Crystal opener for Ponies.

Other tidbits of note for LPS are that the supervising layout artist (and board artist for season 2) from Ponies, Joel Dickie, is co-directing. And a few of the junior board artists from s2 moved on from s3 of Ponies to be full-fledged board artists under him.

One thing people will have to realize about the animation is that they can't compare it to ponies yet. Ponies has had several seasons of animation to recycle when appropriate (that's why people love making things in flash these days) whereas this show will need time to finesse itself. From what I have heard its more of a comedy than action/adventure/comedy. BUT I HAVEN'T SEEN ANY EPISODES YET SO WHAT DO I KNOW.

I liked all the MLP references in the trailer, like the dog having Twilight's colors and monkey pie :XD: But some people are going to hate on it though because they think that the hub is trying to divert the MLP audience to watch LPS instead. There's this misconception that there's some sort of pseudo-rivalry between the shows so everyone's saying "this isn't MLP you can't force us to watch it". A lot of people are worried MLP will be cancelled after season 3 because theres only 13 episodes.

But I see LPS as more of a sister show paying homage to MLP due to it having the same staff and acting as a nice little sideshow which MLP fans will enjoy. And to be honest, they'll probably watch it even if they don't like it simply because it has the same cast and crew :D But I agree with you on the animation, for some reason it did feel a little dated to me and you don't have any option to recycle n the first season.

I agree with your assertion that its more of a 'sister' show. People should take it as a compliment. Obviously the impact that MLP has had is leading to more shows that are going to try to push the boundaries of their target audiences. No one is trying to bury MLP--quite the contrary if everyone has seen the floods of new merch. Odds are, sure, someone behind the scenes could be pandering--we can't know that for sure. I just know the people I work with directly are in the business of making entertaining animation. Hopefully it will not fail on that level. Give it a chance! If it fails, it fails.. but you can't blame anyone for attempting to make another cool show. XD

My opinions are my own on this, btw.. I don't speak for Hasbro, or DHX. AS I WILL KEEP REMINDING EVERYONE. LoL I don't want to see this posted on EQD.

Well, it all sounds good to me :D And I really liked the LPS trailer, just so you know ;) I think the reason MLP started this huge fanbase is because it's the first incarnation of the show that is gender-neutral. It's not overly girly or masculine. I'm just glad that the staff and cast took it so well and actually interact with the fans a lot :) Like how they put Derpy in the show and actually released merchandise that fans wanted to make ;p But I hope MLP doesn't get cancelled after season 3, I don't want ponies to end so soon :( And I know that you have definitely not failed at making entertaining animation :XD:

I sense that there will be some kind of danger involved.
Magical kingdoms don't randomly appear just like that.
...then again, a lot of things do randomly appear....like Pinkie Pie! XD

Looking forward to it. When the ep airs, you should write a journal listing the gags you added in the storyboard phase, cuz we like trivia like that.

Kinda funny how Hasbro dictates that the main characters always have to have their names CAPITALIZED! I'm sure you just copypasted that, and wouldn't ALL CAPS their names normally.
