|I really love that one piece of art|
This was a work I had to do a long time ago in class we had to compare 2 things and find similarities in them. I tought I would show you this, hope you enjoy.
Ponies and starwars Compare
My little pony friendship is magic and Starwars share many similarities in characters, character background stories and music. Some of you might laugh at the idea that I’m comparing what seems to be the total opposite of two genres. But when you really take a closer look you can actually see a strong connection between these 2 franchises. First of all you need to understand pony history and the only way to know that is to watch the show itself, luckily for you I already did that, so let me explained to you all why I believe MLP:FIM has a Starwars vibe.
First of all you got your first Antagonist presented to you as a unicorn that was corrupted by dark magic. She was once known as Princess Luna but soon became jealous of her sister, princess Celestia and her hatred finally turned her into a monster. She ceased to be Luna and instead renamed herself *Nightmare Moon*… Seems familiar doesn’t it?
It’s obvious that Nightmare Moon might have been slightly inspired by Darth Vader and that the conflict between her older sister princess Celestia is the same as Vader and Luke. Except that instead of a father and son, it’s a sibling rivalry. (Here is a link to a video *press Ctrl+clic on the link www.youtube.com/watch?v=MyuGyd…) Also Like vader, this character chooses redemption afterward and learned the errors of her way. She now tries to redeem herself from the dark path that she followed in the past just like Vader redeemed himself by killing the emperor.
Next you got Zecora, the rhyming Zebra, one of my personal favorite characters and Clearly one of Yoda relatives. She is a Zebra who live in the Everfree forest brewing potions and remedies. She is wise and come from a faraway land. Some ponies think she is weird because she talk funny and look different. Of course when I say she talk funny I am of course refereeing to her rhymes. The funny thing about Zecora is that she doesn’t simply rhyme some time to time to give herself a mysterious reputation, no, no, no, no, no. She rhymes all the time!!! That’s the way she talk! Every sentence she makes ends with a rhyme! That must be a writer’s nightmare! She trains young unicorns in the ways of magic too.
Actual Zecora quote: * Unlearn what you have learned, only then can victory be earned*
Actual Yoda quote: *you must unlearn what you have learned*
Both Yoda and Zecora are the same. They both had to train a young student in the ways of (Magic/ The force), both speak in a strange way and both lives in similar houses.
And Finally the third reason I think MLP:FIM and Starwars look alike is that both franchise use the same music technique called Leitmotif, which is most famously associated with movies. Leitmotif is a technique that set the tone or follows a character with music. For example when Vader enter the room you often hear the theme song “The Imperial March (Darth Vader's Theme)”. Leitmotif is commonly used in modern film scoring as a device for mentally anchoring certain parts of a film to the soundtrack. Each character has their own style and different music following them. For example Zecora the Zebra have a catchy African beat that follows her, Rainbow Dash is brash and daring, she often has an electric guitar beat accompanying her,Applejack is often accompanied with a contry music ,Rarity is a high class pony so she often have a dandy and fancy tune you would hear from a British club ,Discord is the spirit of chaos and disharmony, his music theme is very strange and insinuates manipulation.
her is an exemple of Zecora Leitmotif
Here is one video showing a perfect exemple for AJ, rainbow Dash and Rarity Leitmotif
And just for the kicks here is one for Discord
And here you have it the three similarities that make “My little pony friendship is magic” and Starwars similar. Even though both franchise take place in different realms of reality, MLP:FIM being Fantasy and starwars being science fiction, they both share the same passion, heart and conflict that starwars knew how to show for the audience. Whether it’s a similar backstory, characters or simply the music playing in the background it is clear that Starwars and My little pony share more than what peoples think and deserve the same amount of respect.
