It appears that has posted a synopsis of the Equestria Girls movie.  Considering its similarity to the synopsis for the novelization that appeared in the Little, Brown and Company catalog recently, it’s likely legit.  For those of you who care about spoilers for this, the synopsis can be found after the break.

When a crown is stolen from the Crystal Empire, Twilight Sparkle pursues the thief into an alternate world where she transforms into a teenage girl who must survive her biggest challenge yet… high school. With help from her new friends who remind her of Ponyville’s Applejack, Rarity, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, and Fluttershy, she embarks upon a quest to find the crown and change the destiny of these two parallel worlds.

So, who all is going to see it?

      I`ll see it. ah already planned it

  • Everything Twilight’s been through and suddenly high school is the worst? No. Just no. I wouldn’t even torrent this based on what I’ve heard.

    this is going to be bucking stupid….. i swear they make this about dating….. that would suck so bad

  • Jody Morgan

    So, this “alternate world” isn’t going to be the real world, but some in-between realm where the inhabitants are, basically, umamimi? And Twilight’s going to meet 5 residents of this world who are coincidentally like her friends on Equestria?

    I’ve been trying to keep an open mind about this, but it’s getting really darn hard to do so.

    It would seem to me to work better if all six of them chased said thief and ended up there… or is it just me.

    Okay, so it’s not a crossover in the sense that the Mane 6 will see their humanized versions, but Twilight will actually transform into a human….that of course, presents the question, of what happened to the original human Twilight? Is *she* the thief? is Chessmaster Celestia behind all of this, again?

    It sounds….interesting — I mean, it’s not like Twilight didn’t go through high school, or any of the ponies even if we didn’t see it, but even if I have no proof of that…..Lets pretend that Twilight really never had, what we would consider a normal high school experience, whether because of the differences in the world and/or because she was Celestia’s private student — what kind of lessons would Twilight learn here? What kind of experiences would she be able to have, in this new world, that she never and would never be able to have again because of her newly christened role as an Alicorn Princess?

    Though the writers have said that Twilight will still be essentially the same as she was before (we can argue if it makes her role as Princess then superficial then, but well, I’m not going into *there*), this could be the most normal experience she could have in quite some time (well, as ‘normal’ as transforming and going to high school)…or maybe not and, like her suddenly having a brother and princess foalsitter, perhaps there is nothing new that Twilight hasn’t already experienced given that she presumably went to high school already.

    I’m honestly interested, I am….a little creativity goes a long way — I know, from the synopsis, it all sounds really gimmicky and cliche, but a little optimism ever hurts, and this could end up being very very cool…..or not — instead of expecting the worse and writing something off before seeing it, let’s hope for the best and look forward to, what very well could be, a very fun surprise :).

    I bet Trixie is the rich popular snob, and Snip and Snails are the dorky fanboys XD.

    Certainly sounds interesting enough to give it a try.

    Dear god this sounds horrible. I mean, it’s basically exactly what we all knew it would be, but to see it in writing feels miserable.

    “She must survive her biggest challenge yet… high school.” That line just makes me want to bury my head in the sand.

    If it come to a cinema near me I’m totally going to see it (Europe). Even if I know that it will be horrible.

    If this is what passes for a good idea at the Hasbro offices, then it suddenly becomes extremely clear why Lauren quit.

  • Audette

    Sweet Angry Jeebus this sounds excruciating. Stop it Hasbro. Just…stop.

  • Ruby-Hooves

    Not going to watch it, it’s not canon anyway.

    …..wat da buck is dat….

  • Jayden

    It’s pretty obvious that the line about high school being her biggest challenge yet is complete sarcasm, why else would it be followed by a period ellipsis?

    Also, to those of you saying shit like “stupid, she just happens to come across friends exactly the same”. Have you never seen any science fiction? As they said, it’s a PARALLEL world, perhaps even an alternate universe. I think the idea is fantastic, this alternate universe may not have had a Twilight Sparkle to begin with, so she has the joy of rediscovering her friendships. It’s like 1×01/02 all over again.

    Let’s go back to the days where you knew nothing about friendship is magic. If you came across the synopsis of episode 1×01 without knowing much about the show, what would you think?

    “Twilight Sparkle learns that the evil Nightmare Moon will return during the upcoming Summer Sun Celebration after one thousand years of imprisonment on the moon. She tries to warn her mentor Princess Celestia, but the Princess ignores her and sends her to Ponyville to check on the preparations for the celebration. There Twilight reluctantly meets Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Rarity, Fluttershy, and Pinkie Pie for the first time. At the celebration, Nightmare Moon appears in place of a missing Princess Celestia and decrees everlasting night.”

    In all honesty, it doesn’t sound all that interesting. You guys would have just formed some bias opinion about the show based upon that, and would have never given it a chance. You obviously enjoyed the episode, and the show. If not, why the fuck are you here? None of you know exactly how Equestria Girls will turn out, it might be absolutely brilliant. Give it a chance and at least watch it for yourself before forming an opinion.

    I swear, you’re all close minded morons.

      It sounds fantastic actually, what on Earth is wrong with you.

      If it looks stupid (the character designs), and sounds stupid (the synopsis), the chances are that it will most likely be stupid.

      I really hope that I am surprised by this, and if it turns out to be some sort of retelling of the pilot episodes, then great, EG is not as bad as it could have been.

      Until proven otherwise, though, there are many including myself that have their worries that this will be an absolute disaster and go on to ruin season 4 of the show we already know and love.
      Because let’s face it: Hasbro has a track record of doing dumb shit like that.

    • Shiek927

      Jayden, there is no need for that language — that being said, you are right: rather then expecting the worst, and writing something off that we haven’t seen before, let’s hope for the best, it’s easy if you try :).

  • Shiek927

    ….I wonder what kind of role Spike will have in this — will he be Twilight’s dog or something?

  • Alex

    I think we misunderstood something here.

    Hasbro isn’t doing this to compete with Monster High, Hasbro WAS “monster high” when they came UP with this travesty of a trainwreck of a toilet.

    “…she embarks upon a quest to find the crown and change the destiny of these two parallel worlds.”

    I can live with the rest, but this is the bit that has me worried. To me, this leaves the door wide open for this movie to change the canon of MLP:FiM. I can live with Equestria Gilrs being a spinoff, but not if it makes irrevocable changes to MLP:FiM.

    • IMLXH

      Uh, it won’t. It’s already been stated that it will have no bearing on FiM whatsoever.

        Oh… then why is it being made? Other than being a cash-in I mean.

    The only way I’m going to bother with this is if people tell me it’s better than the second coming of Jesus.

  • pi

    This sounds like the synopsis of a LOT of horribly written fanfictions out there. I think I’ll go and see it

  • Anonymous

    I dunno… doesn’t sound like Disney/Pixar or Dreamworks quality. If they were to make a movie, I was kinda hoping for a movie that actually TAKES PLACE IN EQUESTRIA!!!
    If the trailer is good enough, then I might think about it. But it’ll probably be a no.

    I hope that this doesn’t affect Season 4
