Economic Anticipation: new EQG announced, commence speculation by


While I was sleeping (for those unaware I now live in Korea), something was posted that has once again kicked the gears of the speculation engine into action; a promotional image released by Hasbro indicating yet another Equestria Girls property. What does this mean? Follow me on a game of educated guesses.

The promotional image features a property dubbed "Equestria Girls: Legend of Everfree". This would be the first instance we've seen an upcoming project bearing this title, and confirms that the Equestria Girls series will not be ending with a trilogy. Of note, is the fact that as-of yet, the third installment of the films - Friendship Games - seems to be entirely direct-to-DVD (and BluRay), unlike its two predecessors.


Shortly before this image was released, a mysterious job posting appeared at Hasbro, seeking a "Franchise Creative Lead" for  a My Little Pony property, a position that was filled almost instantly. This would lead some to believe that the position was likely filled internally.

Now, knowing all that information, one must only look at why Equestria Girls exists in the first place to get an idea what could be happening here.



Equestria Girls is Hasbro's response to their competitor Mattel's insanely popular line of toys/money printing machines "Monster High" who just last year became partnered with Universal fuckin Studios. (You'll remember earlier how Hasbro was considering merging with Dreamworks....what a strange coincidence...)

You may be shocked to learn that Monster High, since its creation just 5 years ago, has released not 1 or 2, not 5 or 6, but 11 GODFORSAKEN FILMS in that time. (Thats more than 2 movies per year) 

Hasbro, clearly needs to up their direct-to-video game if they want to have any hope to compete with the original multi-colored-goth-girls. 

And they are, as this "Legend of Everfree" indicates.

Engaging the speculatron, it seems as if Hasbro is poised to get a dedicated staff for the Equestria Girls franchise and start pumping out Blu Rays and DVDs faster than you can say "muh headcanon". Why would you sink the money into founding your own shiny brand new Allspark Studios if you don't plan to USE it? 

After Friendship Games. All the pieces will likely be in place for a whole new world of neverending human adventures with the new mane-7 featuring Sunset Shimmer as the mentor and Sci Twi learning about friendship.

All coming soon to BluRay and DVD at a store near you.

God please don't let me be right.

Now, this is naturally all speculation.
All these pieces could be completely unrelated, and Hasbro may have no competitive business sense whatsoever.

But if the collossal Equestria Girls boot fits...

  1. I am more worried about the 2017 movie getting acquired by Sony for distribution. Imagine all the meddling they would do like they did with The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

    1. The Movie ain't going to happen because the new movie coming in October is called "Jem and the Holograms" will be a bomb and bad flicks.

      The bronies rather want to see Adam Sandler in "Hotel Transylvania 2" comes out in September 25 and wants to see Charlie Brown in "The Peanuts Movie" comes out in November 6, this Holiday season.

  4. I'm gonna fucking cry. EQG ruins everything. I bet by the time the 2017 movie comes out, we will have a total of 6 EQG movies. Hold me guys, I need your emotional support. F-f-faggots.

  5. I actually really like Equestria Girls, though that might be because I'm more of an ephebophile than a furry. Anyway, I think it's a good thing that we're getting a movie every year. Even if you don't like EQG, you have to understand that we're getting the equivalent of 4 episodes a year instead of the 13-26 episodes a year that a series would mean. This takes less time away from the show than the alternative.

  6. in my opinion EQG is getting really old and repetitive and should frankly stop otherwise iam excited for mlp season 6 (I know about the hiatus for season 5) and the mlp 2017 film (since its not going to have humans sorry iam not a fan of the human characters from EQD)

    I almost got excited for a second to see if I've missed out on anything, but turns out my brain is just tricking me. And even if not, >no hooves

    Also, them looking for a "Franchise Creative Lead" sounds really scary to me, though that's probably I have no idea what that would actually mean. ...should just grab some fanfic writer, maybe there would be more consistency and shit.

  10. I feel conflicted. On the one hand, I was never one of those guys who hated EG at a conceptual level since it was announced, and I really did like both movies for what they were, even if the first one was quite bad in an objective sense, so I wouldn't say no to more. As well, if whoever Hasbro gets to do them is expected to make a lot of these movies, then assuming they're not total hackjobs just in it for the paycheck, presumably they'll improve over time, and we might eventually get show-quality movies rather than just enjoyably bad or decent-ish ones.

    On the other hand, if they want to make yearly sequels for all the foreseeable future, that could get old fast. Besides the Call of Duty phenomenon of oversaturation, and the fact that they'd probably be better off just making a second TV series if they wanted to produce so many stories, these movies were never that tightly-written in the first place, and such a volume of movies will surely fuck up spectacularly at some point. If this is really going to be a yearly sequel cash-cow franchise of potentially infinite movies, then I somehow doubt that we've seen the worst one already.

    And again, actual improvement rests on the creators caring, which is not a given. If they're really going to take the franchise out of Meghan's hands and give it to a whole new team, then it's 50/50 whether we'll even get somebody who gives a shit. Say what you will about Meghan (figure of speech, not an invitation; fuck off, sperglord anon), I do at least get the impression that she cares about the series and tries to make it good, even if she doesn't always succeed. I worry about what EG will look like without her. It COULD be better, but it could also be far, far worse.

    1. Meghan McCarthy still sucks! She's the worst story editor, worst writer, worst executive producer, the worst show runner ever! And we want her FIRED!
