Here is the second Friendship Games short from Hasbro Studios, “Pinkie Spy:”
Hasbro’s plan is to release one short per week until the airing of the third Equestria Girl movie on September 26, 2015. However, the Spanish Youtube channel for My Little Pony Equestria Girls has leaked four Equestria Girls shorts. If you speak Spanish, you’re ahead of the game. Enjoy! If you would rather be spoiler free, stop here and wait for next week’s short.
Shorts #2 and #3 can be found on Equestria Daily’s website here, while shorts #4 and #5 can be found on Equestria Daily here.
It’s interesting to see how well the lip syncing works in Spanish, especially since American (or Canadian) animating takes the care to match the mouth shape to certain vowels and consonants, whereas in anime the mouth is usually just opened or closed. Where they have some trouble is in the musical numbers. If you are a nitpicker and look at the Spanish version of “Perfect Day for Fun,” you’ll catch a few spots where the lip syncing is not quite right. Still, it’s pretty good, considering some of the sentences have to be changed to fit the music.
None of these shorts are music videos yet, but we still have a few weeks to go. Before “Rainbow Rocks,” we had “Perfect Day For Fun” and “Music To Her Ears.” Then, earlier this year, we got “My Past is Not Today,” “Life is a Runway,” and “Friendship Through the Ages,” so I can’t complain.
What I am complaining about is that “Friendship Games” is not being released in theaters!
