I found this via io9. This You Tube mashup does a side-by-side comparison of the Star Wars celebration scene. I’m not sure why I find this interesting, but I am sure you all may have something to say about this transposing of what is now a foundational heroic movie to a pastel, non-gendered version.
Wow, this is so close this it is almost creepy. I know that in today’s world it is normal for pop culture to crack jokes. Others have already commented about this link. I can see how Star Wars has become ingrained into our minds. However, I wonder if the creators of this pony series just really loves and respects the Star Wars movies. Perhaps they were just trying to pay tribute to an existing story. On the other hand they could have been completely lost on their next storyboard and flat out stole the idea from Star Wars because they were on a deadline. I have never watched whatever this pony program. I don’t know if they have copied anything else from Star Wars. I wonder if these creators copy other shows on a regular basis?
