    Do you feel like Hasbro's ponies are becoming old hat? Is your distaste for the mainstream putting you off FiM? Are you craving to jump on a new bandwagon before anyone else, and preferably one with pretty pink ponies on it?

    "The most successful toy in Central Europe now comes to life with the most imaginative and magical characters and stories. The FILLY animated series brings to life the charming adventures of Rose and her friends as they attend the Magic Royal Academy of Funtasia."



    Princess is a race! Everyone wears a crown! There are at least fifteen castles! (Thanks to @Verdana for counting them all.) Now that all the stops have been pulled, can Hasbro's franchise ever hope to compete?​

    With the animated series coming in 2014, now is the ideal time to start planning your OCs, drafting your fanfictions and drawing fanart. Will we be seeing you anytime soon in the magical Filly Kingdom?

    But sarcasm aside, I'll definitely take a look at this. I've become unable in recent times to enjoy anything remotely manly and this just panders to my new tastes.

    EDIT: Having actually watched the trailer, I do see hope for it. And the theme tune sounds awesome.

    And this is perfect evidence, if any more were needed, of just how incredibly lucky we were that Lauren Faust got the FiM gig...

    Until it releases, I'm not making any assumptions. :p

    Alfie, get my swag glasses.
    We're hitting the red carpet together.

    That's a more positive response than I was expecting. :p

    My favourite thing about this is that even though the trailer is getting totally flamed in its comments section, whoever runs the official YouTube channel is replying a lot and is taking criticism like a total champ. Major props to that person.

    The most interesting thing is that this is being made by BRB Internacional, the same studio that made Around the World with Willy Fog and Dogtanian and the Three Muskehounds way back when! So a catchy theme tune seems almost a given. :D

    You know I haven't even thought about those in years and I can still remember the theme songs... :eek: Well that's something of a development anyway but going by the trailer I still think the animation's poor. There are a good few SFM animators in the fandom who could do a better job.

    Goodness, I laughed so much when I saw the trailer. The writing and voice acting is dreadful, but it's only a trailer and we've been surprised by a certain show before now.

    That said, the response to cupcakes going missing was to go on an adventure to track down a monster rather than simply make more cupcakes. What even.

    Who edited that trailer? It's like they recorded a skipping DVD!
    But yeah, bland, saccharin and safe, it's sure to make money. Maybe not big money, but money non the less.

    I don't know how seriously I'm meant to take Funtasia Daily but I'm taking it oh so seriously.

    I can't help but think that it looks like a cheap G3 rip-off done with 3D graphics.

    I can't help but think that I'd expect to find something like that in Poundland.

    A show about girly, colourful, magic ponies going on adventures?

    Sounds kind of familiar...
    Just for the hell of it, I'll watch an episode one day and see if it's any good. xD

    I actually told Ashens about this, the look on his face was priceless. xD

    I can imagine he'd have a somewhat brilliant reaction.

    To the trailer's credit, I liked the scene cutoff in 1:23 after the "Don't touch it!" line. ^^ The bat looks cute and is the filly on the far left of the poster standing on a piece of toffee?

    A successful toyline in Europe, you say? Come on, Europe... you made the Smurfs, Tintin, Asterix, the Moomins and Moebius cultural icons to this day. You don't make to take liberties from any other nation to be successful.
