Spoiler – Seems two new characters have cropped up? I wasn’t sure of the full story, and frankly I don’t even watch EqD anymore, outside of their twitter feed for a quick scan for any news we’ve missed, but this seems to have slipped under the radar with a bunch of us. Spoilerific kind of stuff, so you’ve been warned.
Update: Telofy over at Ponyleaks passed us over some high-rez pictures and additional information.
Okay so this one kind of flew under my radar, according to EqD’s article confirming at least through twitter that these are actual characters which will appear in the show, I could find hardly anything. Even a Google Custom search of EqD shows really nothing from the names, but knowing them they probably originally shoved this in their nightly wrap up.
Shining Armor & Princess Candence, seen above. From what I have been told (and dug out of the net), these characters appeared on some promotional signage at the Hasbro HQ Party which I guess happened a few weeks back, Its apparent its a royal wedding, and its even been pointed out that “Prince Shining Armor” is wearing the same attire as Prince William. So its an obvious take about the royal wedding.
Its been confirmed by VA Andrew Francis that at least Shining Armor will appear in the show, as seen above in a tweet. We’ll just assume Candence will also appear in the show.
Best results from what I’ve been able to dig around on this, is that this is possibly the finale for Season 2.
Additional Information: Seems according to Telofy of Ponyleaks has some back details. The images showed up on a post from the EqD around December 9th. They are no info on the context of the pictures and just knew that it was from the Hasbro HQ Party (which I assume is a holiday party for the staff and I’m sure lots of kids). Seems that post also disappeared from EqD, which is probably why I couldn’t find any previous information.
