Entertainment Weekly’s Family Room section appears to be back in the pony business, with an exclusive teaser trailer. Catch it embedded after the break, or by clicking the link above. As you might imagine, the trailer spoils some jokes and plot points.
Yes, the idea of My Little Pony Friendship is Magic‘s equine mane six being recast as human high school students sounds a little crazy at first.
But it’s tough not to be charmed by that premise after watching this brand-spankin’-new trailer, which clearly lays out the movie’s plot. Shortly after she’s named a princess, Twilight Sparkle’s all-important crown is stolen by a wicked pony who spirits it through a looking glass. In order to get the tiara back, Twilight must follow her adversary into a new and strange world — one populated by weird-two-legged creatures who bear an odd resemblance to her pony pals back in Equestria.
There’s some rote stuff here, to be sure (“Looks like if I want my crown back, I’ll have to become princess of the fall formal!”) — but Friendship is Magic‘s quirky-cute sense of humor appears to be largely intact, which is really all that matters.
And this, finally, is Daniel Ingram’s music.

Slightly off-topic and in addition to a few pictures published by Screenvision several weeks ago, there is also this gallery of leaked images from the movie, courtesy timeforponiponi and whoever took the photos.
