OK ladies – tell me – do you still have your very first My Little Pony? I do. Well, technically I suppose, E2 does. All of my old ponies are mixed in amongst her ‘new’ ponies. Just like with any fashion trend, my childhood toys seem to be making a come back, but with a twist. That’s why it was a waste of time to keep my old neon sweatshirt, I suppose. Neon was an accent the second time around, not an entire wardrobe colour. Same deal with those high waisted pants that all the cool girls were suddenly wearing. Don’t get me wrong – I wasn’t sad to see an alternative to the ultra-low rise, super skinny jean. It’s just that my torso configuration means that style ends up with jeans that sit somewhere near my sternum. Neither comfortable nor fashionable.
The MLP Equestria Girls are today’s reincarnation of My Little Pony. The Mane 6 ( Twilight Sparkle, Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, Rarity, Pinkie Pie, and Apple Jack) are back in their third full length film
My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Friendship Games, Canterlot High meets its rival school, Crystal Prep Academy, in a competition that’s a long-standing tradition –The Friendship Games: a series of exciting events that includes archery, motocross, and rollerskating! Sunset Shimmer is tasked with keeping magic out of the games to keep things fair while she and her friends compete against Crystal Prep’s top students led by someone with an equal amount of interest in Equestrian magic – this world’s Twilight Sparkle.
So, now the ponies are teenage girls that are working their way through the maze that is high school. While the Equestria Girls are clearly aimed at a younger audience, the storyline is helpful for tween girls who are already facing mean girls, social media, and peer pressure. The colourful outfits and individual personalities of the ponies doesn’t hurt either.
