The interviewer opens with an apology for not being properly prepared for the interview, but apart from his referring to “a convention dedicated to MLP”—Which one of the several dozen?—he did a good job anyway.
Wow, so My Little Pony is already on its third season. What are some new things compared to the previous two seasons?
The expanding of Equestria where the show takes place. Twilight Sparkle has been in Ponyville for a while, so we’re going to see her journey get further and deeper.
They talk about inspirations, quality, and writing in general.
What would be your selling point for non-fans of the show?
I think in general if you’re a big animation fan, the show is great looking. I think with each season, it takes animation to a new level that you don’t see on TV very often. It’s just really solid storytelling, and that’s what we’re aiming for. You just feel good when you watch it. It’s not cynical and it doesn’t have a bunch of characters yelling at each other. It’s characters that you get invested in really quickly, seeing them overcome their flaws to reach their goals. And it’s got the catchy music that’s fun to listen to on the show, and it’s fun to hear what the bronies do with it afterwards.
