We all love it, otherwise it's unlikely you'd be here. Talk about the show and the fanbase surrounding it. Brony music discussions encouraged.

Equestria Girls 2

Yup, that's right. They're making a second one. inb4 this turns into a rage thread.

My opinion on it... The advertisement is pretty bad as it's not really showing what the movie will be about, other than a musical type thing with people dancing and stuff. From rumors I've heard around the web, it's going to be a musical competition type of thing, and you can probably guess that Sunset Shimmer is going to be versing Twi.

However, I still see some hope for this, because this advertisement is more than likely a really early preview, so as the movie gets closer and closer to the release date some time in fall, the advertisements for it will show more and more of what the movie is about.

I am excited. I loved the first one, and the fact that this one centers around music makes it that much better. I loved the first Equestria Girls's songs, and I look forward to hearing what songs they come up with for this one.

I've learned to not trust previews, though. Previews tend to focus on the things that they think will help sell tickets and not what the story is actually about.

Well its nicknamed "Rainbow Rocks" and has the girls in a glam band. How this all fits into a storyline and with Sunset Shimmers return is a good question. This all leaked via the upcoming toy releases which feature both pony and doll matching sets.

Its clear that the "one and done" that was communicated for the first one has been nixed. I guess if you didnt quit over the drama and drought over the first movie then you likely won't leave over the second one. Not too happy but what what else is new.

As long as those Rarity getting wings leaked pictures are fake (everyone becomes an alicorn) then I'm ok with no further disruptions in the force.

Fuck

I don't like the first movie at all. I don't understand why the characters have to be, yet again, humans in a completely mundane setting. Apperently the first movie was successful enough for them not to take any risks and make the exact same movie again.

I remember the days when i wanted a feature movie so badly. Then came Equestria Girls. And now i'm just feeling trolled.

I am completely unopposed to this movie being a thing. I am also unopposed to any sudden wing shaped growths any of them may acquire. Only problem I see is that if this

actually does turn out to be the movies plot line, then you could probably quite easily predict the events of the movie. But if Sunset Shimmer turns out to be the musical villain, I will be happy :3 I'm willing to bet that if that's the case she'll get an awesome song.



OH! IDEA!

WHAT IF - The point of the movie isn't about the main 6 winning and being friends and getting rainbow powers and instead twists to be about helping Sunset Shimmer realize that she has actually made a group of good friends who she doesn't have to intimidate to make stay around her by having them come together as a band and suprisingly winning the competition? It would change the cliché predictable toyetic ending of rainbow power to something (still kind of cliché but) much better in terms of developing Sunset Shimmers character, and honestly I'd love to see the writers make something that is pretty much only being made to ship more toys into a movie thats still reminiscent of the main series in which it tries to convey a real message, moral or lesson. Though the chances of the plot being like that based on that trailer seem pretty slim to me.


Also that plot idea would be a really easy way of slipping a continued Trixie cameo in by putting her in SS's band :3

I honestly doubt Sunset Shimmer will be the villain. She was redeemed in the first Equestria Girls. I'm sure they'll fabricate some new villain for us and maybe give SS a cameo.

Yeah, you're probably right, but couldn't they use her more as a rival now than a villain? Each thing doesn't have to have a major "Yaarr I'm evil!" type villain, does it? Seeing as it's a sequel i'd love to see SS pop back up as Twilights rival, going through the motions of trying to better herself, treat others right, and make friends. She could go through the doubts of whether she's actually changing anything and whether people are actually accepting her but in the end she could surprisingly win the contest, and pull through her self doubts and realize that everybody likes her for who she is. [friendship rambling off]

BaHt n0 ManE 6iX hAs 2 wiN coZ RaInb0w p0wahRs anD TwAhyLighTt aMs tHe mANe cHarActeRr

So yeah you're probably right. :c

The plot will probably be something like
- "omg i'm in this strange world again!"
- "omg a talent show! Let's enter to conveniently win the grande prize, which is conveniently plot object"
- "omg practice!"
- "omg problems leading up to thing!"
- "omg its time for the show we're last on and nervous but the problems have been resolved miraculously!"
- "omg we got magical rainbow powers and grew wings again because of our friendship!"



....

- "omg flash sentry! [blelehelehletonguingnoises]"

There is no doubt that Flash Sentry will turn up again. Bleh. His presence is annoying in that all he is a generic love interest with no other use or reason to be in the film but to be a generic love interest (who has no use).

20 bucks says Aftermath, Tombstone, Mandopony, etc. will all do multiple remixes/covers of songs from the movie.
Notebook Memories, the debut album from yours truly, is currently up on my bandcamp for free. Any feedback, encouragement, hate mail, etc. is highly appreciated! Even just listening is pretty cool of you tbh.

Well it loses a lot of appeal to me if it's gonna be centered around music.
I guess I'm gonna watch and wnjoy it nonetheless, but still.

But the music is very different from the show's as well, at least in the first movie it was. It's more sugary pop oriented and personally that's yet another thing i can't stand. :sad:

This. So much this.

The first one wasn't all that bad, and there are plenty of loose ends in the universe that could still use some continuation. Like, will Twilight know what she's doing as a human now? Is Sunset still gonna be a total jerk? More background pony cameos? More archetypal high-school drama? More Flash Sentry shenanigans? More shitstorm from the fandom?

I'm predicting yes to all of the above.

I think the only really bad part of the first movie was the sunset shimmer randomly turning into a demon only to be instantly defeated ^^

Pinkie is the drummer. I don't know why that's so funny to me.

I also really enjoyed EQG1, it was so ridiculous and hilarious and fun as long as you don't take it more seriously than it took itself. I see no reason to believe this one would be any different.

Word of Ingram says 12 songs. 12.

Now, if we put each song at 2 minutes each (average value) that gives us 24 minutes.

Given that the first one was little over an hour long, we can expect this one to be lengthed similarly.

24/60 = 4/10

40% of this thing is going to be song.

That's a pretty hefty proportion, it might even get annoying after a while, but whatever, I'm not expecting much but I'll watch it anyway.

Also, can I just say that I 120% approve of Pianist Rarity?

The trailer makes it looks like it's gonna be the most shit-brained thing ever, but I'm not gonna draw that conclusion until the movie actually comes out and I see for myself.

Till then, some pro's and cons.

Pro: The animation looks super smooth, the song featured (while cheesy as fuck) is pretty catchy, dat vinyl walk is actually pretty amusing and it looks like we're gonna see stuff other than the school (I hope).

Cons: I predict a lot of tedious fanservice based on the fact that they're showing off Vinyl a lot, the songs are probably gonna be cheesy as hell (even though they'll still be catchy. this one's kind of a grey area), this looks like it'll be a Battle of the Bands type of movie and that premise is ridiculously overdone, the designs for the band costumes are really dumb looking and although it's not related to the movie, but regardless of what I think of it the fandom will erupt into entitled drama left and right just like last time.

I don't think the movies writing is sophisticated enough to acknowledge it.

Anyway, I'm too burned out with a drama and life in general to give a damn anymore. All I'm going to say is it looked "good" (artistically the idea is absolutely awful and a total sellout, but them being in a rock band is still amusing, and I want to see them rock) until the song started. I want to hear them play glam metal, not some modern pop song that doesn't sound like it's coming from the instruments they are playing.

Oh please, the writers put fan favorite characters in the background of most of the episodes, undoubtedly they'll put SS as a cameo if they spin a new villain :P
