Holy shit that was fast...
Might be secret agent luna
jesus we are fast.
Luna will become NNM once MORE!
No argument here.
LUNA: DARK LORD OF THE SITH!
i hope she's a good guy(pony?)i like her better that way
Luna never did had much imagination for halloween costumes...
You hear that, fic authors? Badass Luna is best Luna!
There appears to be a distinct lack of eyeshadow on Luna, i have my doubts..
The horn is a bit of a giveaway, but whatevs. So if we can't get a proper blog post about rumored screens, could somepony link us up?
Scribejay said... @Tovler Of course there's a train station in Ponyville. How else do you think they got a tree to Appleoosa? And that image of Luna will be vectorized with full assumed body in...3...2...1. September 29, 2011 10:24 PM Called it.
I'd like to think of Luna as beig mischievous. It would be pretty cool if these pictures were real (although I doubt it), as many people would like to Luna again.
Holy to the power of D:
@moocow1452We posted all of the known ones except the dinky thing, since...dinky with derpy seems a bit out there even if the animator on the forum thing seemed legit.
Maybe she's become a bounty hunter and tracks down traitors to Equestria.....
@SethistoIt LOOKED like Sibsy's art style at least.at least I hope it's real cause man Haloween episode with Derpy (and maybe Dinky too?) HELL YEAH SIGN ME UP.
>Make vector of badass Luna>Leak vector with background as real thing>Post vector publicly>Everybody thinks you are glorious vector artistIt's a conspiracy, I tells ya.
X-Files poster with evil Luna.I WANT TO BELIEVE
you guys are well aware that all the leaks could be completely true.and yet Luna might you know not be an evil badass (though I do hope she's the second one) cause her being evil again would be kinda odd.
But Luna is a good girl!
Ya'll will be happy to know that episode 4 does indeed have more of Luna. I don't know if this image specifically is taken from that episode, but the episode does focus on her.
@Bastasand you are?
@SethistoIf you ask me that's rarity with her.
@MojoI'm the mysterious fella "that works for a tv listings company" that you've seen referred to in the other episodes with descriptions.Unfortunately, this time around I only have the official description from the Hub which I am almost certain they keep confidential, so I can't post it in full until at least tomorrow.
@Bastasah well that explains things I guess.
@BastasSo... you're for real? Episode 4 Luna is for real?
so Seth are you prepared to deal with the invetiable Shitstorm when Luna appears? cause im sure you know as well as I do that no matter how she is portrayed a portion of her fanbase will rage and stuff.
If you think Luna returning causes a stir, just wait until Trixie returns. ;)
@SethistoHere:http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-LfKxuTc_FqU/ToVPdz8WyII/AAAAAAAAAtA/YkkFxmkUUWg/s1600/1317359382310.pngIf you still don't believe me.
@BastasThanks for the info.Episode 4 = My body is not ready!!
We've known that Luna's return would cause shitstorm whether it was Fluttershy 1.5 Luna, Trickster Luna, or Evil Luna. As the old Manga forum proverb goes: You fanon, you lose.
@OctaviaTrixie isn't anywhere near as big as Luna in the Fanon.also she already has a canon personality, while Luna does not.
Darth Luna says you don't know the power of the Dark Side.*still skeptical, but damn some folks are fast*
@MojoYes, but that wasn't my point. My point is how divided people are on Trixie and the large number of people who cringe at the thought of her making another appearance.
@Octavia I have a hard time believing this supposed Trixie speculation is anywhere near as big as Luna specualtion.
@TovlerI'm guessing an evil Luna would have a significantly larger backlash than other iterations. General consensus in the fanon is that she's "good" whether that she's also shy or mischievous varies but most don't view her as unrepentant of her former actions.
But I like my Luna happy!I don't want her to be Evil T_T
@TovlerWe shall see. ;)
someone fix it..
she is not evil. she is just hiding her wings pretending to be just an unicorn.she is planning the biggest prank evar to the mane6 and celestia. BUAHAHHAHA.
>_<It doesn't look that much like luna to me. The colors are wrong (hair and coat shades seem off compared with each other, and too saturated), nose too long, horn spiral is too steep....It could be plot and lighting-related stylization, and the eyes are the right color, but I just didn't think 'luna' when I saw it. I guess we'll see.
It's a Halloween costume!!!!!!...Harvest Festival?........Fall Wrap Up?
MY LITTLE PONY II THE LUNAR MENACE
Um, duh: Luna is best Luna, regardless of how she's dressed.
@BlackbeltLuna's birthday!Totally calling it now. Luna's birthday.
Considering the fact that Episode 3 is set to air on the 15th, and assuming Episode 4 would air a week later on the 22nd...(Which happens to be rather close to Halloween)I'm betting on this being Luna in her Halloween costume.
"Nightmare Night," actually. ;) And with that, I'm off to bed.
Wow, that was fast. I'm guessing either episode 4 or 5 will shed some light on this Luna image, assuming its real.
@MojoStatistically speaking? Not likely, these come from 4Chan, which is infamous for lying, faking and tricking.
I think... I think Luna always dresses in style.Hey! I didn't say it was a -good- style!
@Bastas Sure you are...
i sense a disturbance in the force....
@FanloserExcept for that one time we got the exact plot of S2E1.
If Luna finally appears what's going to happen to all those Luna fanfics?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lsf6s-FxrmU
@ParasojaFun fact:Cartoons often use different color palettes for characters depending on the scene in which they appear.
@70f31582-eb1d-11e0-b79f-000bcdcb8a73 I said, "Not likely." Not, "no way."

thank johnny rivers for the melody
>Put the screens behind the break to avoid spoilers>Make another post all about one of said spoilersLolwut
You make this so difficult on me good sir
Ok, loony Luna = best LunaLet's outdo Flutterrage in the anger department, outdo Pinkamena in the crazy department and outdo Trixie in the smug department."With all these elements combined..."
@XortOut of context, you wouldn't know this was a spoiler unless you read enough of the comments.
@TovlerYou wouldn't know anything at all about it. I know I'd be curious myself, and look at the comments to see what was up.Not that I'm upset by this or anything. I don't want spoilers, but those screens just don't seem legit to me so even if they do end up real I won't be able to say I was expecting it. I was just chuckling at the derpiness of it all.
I thought that this image was the most real looking. I wnat to see this now!
I think Discord would be rolling around on the ground dieing of laughter right now too. The chaos!
I'm calling Doppelpony right now.
@Dr. Henry KillingerMost people roll with fake names, but we can do it tomorrow!
@Dr. Henry KillingerI sincerely doubt that Baasta is what his says he is. It's seems far to convenient for my tastes. Especially since these leaks came from 4Chan and there are plenty of people wanting to mess with us bronies.
@Xort"I don't like spoilers. I think I'll read the comments section to see if this rumor is in fact a spoiler."Oooh. I hope evil Luna becomes canon. I really resent the cute apologetic Luna especially after I read that one comic where Luna didn't actually become NMM on her own free will, it was "miasma" that possessed. Fuck that shit. Luna's a boss! She's always in control. She will be acknowledged not as your waifu, nor as your silly jester, but as your Queen!
I don't go on 4Chan, but don't rumors like these come out on a weekly basis?
@Bastas<3 <3 <3 <3 <3Love you Bastas. Thanks for all the info.(I WANT TO BELIEEEEVEEEE)
@Tovler Yep, and a lot of them turn out to be fake. I think that's the case here, especially now that some random guy that claims to work for a TV listings company, but has to keep the "official description from the Hub" confidential, just suddenly appeared.
HRNG, I can't wait for this episode. Since it's pretty much confirmed to be a...ALMOST SPOILERS BELOW THIS POINT----------------------------Halloween Episode, I have no doubt that Luna is about to do some haunting in the dead of night. Think about it. The episode is scheduled for the 22nd of October, we've gotten a storyboard with spiders and a costume wearing pony, and Jayson Thiessen said there would be a "scary" episode coming up soon. Just add 2 + 2 together.----------------------------ALMOST SPOILERS ABOVE THIS POINTAll in all, my fears of a 'bad guy' Luna have been pretty much abolished. Can't wait for October!
@FanloserThe pictures from 4chan is a different story entirely. I can't confirm those as being legit, and I'm not trying to. Our "mutual friend" has nothing to do with them. Instead, he has everything to do with the early episode synopsizes that are coming out. Like how we already know what episode 3 is gonna be. Judging by Seth's reaction, I would guess that this guy has been leaking information to EQ Daily for a while now. You can contrast that with how he reacts to the pictures, in that they are not able to be confirmed, even through EQ Daily's networks.Oh, and @Sethisto:I hope you are correct in your assumption. Regardless, I would suggest deleting any posts incriminating our "mutual friend". I will be deleting my previous one, as it mentions his name on there. Hopefully we can take care of any evidence of this happening, and that nobody saw it. I'll probably delete this post too after a while, as to not arouse any more suspicion then necessary.
I might be the minority here, but I would love it if Luna turned out to be a villain in season 2. I know it wont happen but still would be kind of cool.
@FanloserThen again, if someone with that insider knowledge did decide, on the spur of the moment, to comment on spoilers, nobody would believe him... which looks the same as what we have here. If he's trolling, he's got a foolproof scheme. If he's for real, he's got no way to convince us. Which is one reason why it's smarter for someone on the inside to just keep quiet.
I'll call it as a Halloween episode with luna being sneaky not evil. And derpy popping out of a bobbing for apples barrel :p
We know nothing about Luna's true personality. But I think I can safely say that she can't be EVIL. Hell, she was mortified about what she did when she was Nightmare Moon, and was all too eager to apologize to her sister and all. I doubt they'd do a flip-flop of that magnitude. Assuming this pic is actually real, I don't think flat-out evil is what we're actually seeing.
@Dr. Henry Killinger I still say it's just too convenient. But whatever.
---ARE THESE THINGS FAKE, OR JUST RUMORED?---There is a big difference. I get my pony news from EqD only, and i'm the poor, dumb reader here. Will someone help me?The recent "lol sorry" blog posts lead me to believe "fake" but nothing says so and you all seem to assume "rumor"Whether this information is faked or rumored is important to me, and all the posts just confuse me more.
Already! man you guys are fast
So very awesome!!Also, Zecora called, she wants her coat back.
If this is real, I'm betting its either a flashback or some similar explanation other than evil luna.
@TovlerWay to be an ass about it. There's plenty of things it could be other than a spoiler. Hell, the first time I saw ponies in socks, did I assume it was a spoiler for season 2? Fuck no. I thought it was some other weird thing the fandom had cooked up, and so I looked into it to see if I was right.That's the same logic that goes behind checking the comments here. Without context, I would have thought "Ponies in cloaks" is the new meme or something.
@AlexstrazsaYeah exactly, that's what I speculated as well here.Honestly, this is gonna be SO AWESOME!!! /)^ε^(\ I can't wait for the 3rd episode, much less the 4th! XD
@XortYeah, but this one says "I don't care if it's a rumor..." which, is a warning. Also, wouldn't the content in the article have been enough?
@FanloserThey do not come from 4chan originally. I am quite convinced that they are legit based on other spoilers from then original source.
@Zirro What original source? In any case, that still doesn't mean they are legit, I remember someone making a website promoting an "art exhibit" that featured something called, "The Rape Tunnel," only for the whole thing to be fake.
Nooooooooooooooooooooooo!Luna is supposed to be more innocent than Fluttershy!Nooooooooooooooooooooooo!
@FlutterfanThose fanfics will either rise to complete awesomeness...OrBurn into 'cannot be resurrected' ashes where Fluttershy cries foreveeeeeeeeeeer.It all depends on which Luna becomes true canon. >:3Must...resist...evil...laugh...
Looks like Luna will be in the Halloween (likely given some pony-pun name instead) episode.
Fan fics will NEVER BE THE SAME.
You bronies are CRAZY!!!Luna is not evil. Hasbro has dumped Luna into the toy Market with 3 simultaneously released Luna toys. The standard size pony is bundled with Celestia, and is cheap. The Fashion Luna is bundled with fashion Celestia. The third Luna toy, the shine brite Luna is in that freakishly expensive $40 cardboard castle insul... I mean imitation.All of the toys refer to her as princess Luna, and Hasbro notoriously has not produced toy villains for any of the antagonists. Even Gilda and Trixie are not manufactured. No Nightmare Moon. And 3 Lunas???Luna is not evil. It's either:a) a fakeorb) a legit scene that is being GROSLY misinterpreted.I do love this fandom, but you guys can be a mindless herd sometimes. Seriously, think for a moment.
You know, maybe Badass-Evil looking Luna is a sign of one of the BEST EPISODES EVER!! Think about it... the crew said that the first Luna episode of season 2 was going to be epic, and Lauren Faust herself stated that something MADE Luna turn into Nightmare Moon. I think the Evil Luna screenshot comes from an episode that flashes back to when Luna first became NMM. DO Y'ALL KNOW WHAT THIS MEANS?!?! We'll finally get the official canon explanation to the secret of what REALLY HAPPENED one thousand years ago and IT IS GOING TO BE AWESOME!!!!!
Guys, Lauren said in her interview that Luna, though associated with night and darkness, is good.So she's not evil, despite her apparent penchant for hooded cloaks and diabolical grins.Prediction: an almost-repeat of Bridle Gossip, with everyone going "ho noes, Luna is teh evilz" and her turning out not to be.
That or it could be from a dream sequence. I swear, if Manly Spike from Dog and Pony Show was a leaked Image. The whole fandom would have gone insane about it with all the speculation.
Lol, the horn is way off centre.
She isn't evil. Just Misunderstood also she stole that cloak from Zecora XD
This world has been connected...tied to the darkness...soon to be completely eclipsed...Am I seriously the only one that was thinking of Kingdom Hearts when I saw Luna in a brown cloak?
@CelestiaDid you forget what happened all the times we tried switching looks for Halloween? No pony even knew who I was, but everypony knew it was you.
@OctaviaNice....You're not getting invited back to the palace to perform anymore.
@FanloserThe forum in which the animator kept posting spoilers, which Seth removed the link to on the request of forum admins. It can be found in the comments of that newspost.
Neigh! Ponytail Luna is best Luna. http://s3.amazonaws.com/data.tumblr.com/tumblr_lr4w9mon5C1qklcrto1_1280.png?AWSAccessKeyId=AKIAJ6IHWSU3BX3X7X3Q&Expires=1317477654&Signature=k3dXUjmA3Y6AWta%2BvXr4GwGO5TY%3D
It would be great if Luna returns in a Halloween episode. Maybe out her as the true Prankster Princess?
As much as I love nerdy, adorkable Luna, that probably isn't close to her canon personality. Even if she isn't evil, she will probably have a dark personality. She is the goddess of the moon and the creator of Nightmare Moon.
Good Luna is best Luna.
*SPOILER* umm maybeI Heard this is from episode 4 which is apparently a halloween episode
Here in the U.S., Halloween and New Year's Eve are really the only holidays celebrated by everyone that revolve almost totally around the night. It makes sense that the Princess of the Night would rule over Equestria's version of Halloween (I'm calling the flood of Luna/Skeleton Jack artwork right now.)I also imagine, if it's her first one in a thousand years, she might go all out... And the modern ponies might not be prepared for the old ways of celebrating a scary night.
I have a theory that a Luna focused episode will have her being regretful and the friendship moral of the episode will be the Mane 6 trying to snap her out of her depression and get her to her original personality; a fun-loving, free spirited artist.That would be my ideal episode.
Evil Luna is best Luna
@richfilesThis is perhaps the most cogent point I've seen in this entire discussion. If nothing else, this disproves the "evil" concept. But if it is true that she is in the/a halloween episode, I could not be any more excited!!! I mean, halloween should be her night! Prankster Princess is best Princess!
If anything, it's me being a normal Halloween celebrater, with a streak of pranks and sinister-looking costumes, then being misunderstood as evil.
@richfilesI agree. Hasbro would not do something like that and then turn around and make Luna evil again.Think about it...it kills storytelling if you have a character that flip flops back and forth between being good and being bad. The best thing to do is either:a) Have a good character turn bad.orb) Have a bad character become good (Luna's case).My guess, if that picture of Luna is real, is that it is part of a Halloween episode. In which case I'm looking forward to it.P.S.- Oh, and Lauren said that Luna was good.Voice of God trumps all. Lol.
I think its just showing what luna looks like through the eyes of another pony.
I hope it's like a Professor Chaos thing. She tries to do evil things but ends up failing in a hilarious and adorable way. If she turns out to be really evil I'll be disappointed and confused. Mostly because how am I supposed to take little Luna seriously.
If Luna will become a bad guy, I will die, and it won't be the happy kind of death either :(The cartoons,= for children never make the bad guys any good reasons to be bad (excuses, yes, but no reasons), so instead of getting badass Luna that tries to overthrow her brainwashing, tyrant sister we will get a Luna that will want to destroy the world because she's evil. Totally not cool, that is why stuff like this are better to be left for fans instead -.-' Do not want.jpgReally, I'm fine with any Luna as long as she's not like a character pulled out from previous generation and given a new body
@snowfi6916You never know, there is still that SLIGHT possibility (0.00000000001% (yes, I made this statistic up)) that it's what we (read I) fear, and currently this possibility is TOO DAMN HIGH!
I wonder how this image will be incorporated into her first episode since season 1 episode 2...
I knew there was something bad in the second season... :'(
We can haz Lunaz?
made a wallpaper of this vector already: http://discovolanate.deviantart.com/art/Epic-Luna-Wallpaper-261007279
VICTORY FOR LUNA!
We seriously need a couple to appear in the actual show....
