I’m going to warn you in advance that while I’m normally a placid person (my review of LPS’s “Very Littlest Pet Shop” not withstanding), I can go Saddle Rager from time to time. Here, there are a couple of issues that are doing just that.
Wednesday morning, I awoke to the news that screenshots (and possibly the movie itself) of Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks have been leaked via 4chan. I have decided not to see any spoilers until I see the movie itself on Saturday (September 27th). Needless to say, this is very disappointing that some people have decided to leak the movie online and should be taken to task by the fandom.
Of course, this kind of thing occurred when screenshots of the first Equestria Girls movie was leaked. On my Twitter, I asked Bronies to please be respectful of those fans who do not want to be spoiled by refraining from posting these spoiler images on social media. It’s one thing when Google Play accidentally leaked “Pinkie Pride” before it aired on the Hub Network the following Saturday, but it’s wholly another when the movie is somehow leaked online if for no other reason than to spoil things for others either to feed someone’s misguided hunger to see the movie ahead of time or just to do it out of spite for Bronies. That essentially is taking money away from people who actually worked on the movie. So once again, I urge Bronies to be respectful of those who do not wish to be spoiled by the leaked version of the movie and/or the screenshots by not posting them on social media.
It is also wrong to post “camera in a movie theater” versions of the movie on YouTube after it is released like some people did the first movie. If you could wait nine months between Seasons Three and Four, one month between the theatrical release and the DVD release isn’t going to hurt you.
