It's The Desolation of Smaug trailer with ponies. Because you can't spell "Equestria" without "quest."
For all you Bilbros out there...

Oh great. Topless Robot has been infected by Bronies just like every other site I used to love. I wasn't coming here much anymore anyway, but now I know to stay away forever. It was nice while it lasted.
The "that...was a dragon" line is way funnier with Pinkie, but then that's true of everything.
Forgive my ignorance.
Is this existing Pony footage with the Hobbit trailer dubbed/edited in, or is it new footage designed to mimic the look and feel of the Hobbit trailer?
Ponies? I have been summoned!!
MLP's dragon is closer to what I imagined for Smaug. I really dislike the "snake-ification" of dragons that has been going on where they're all being depicted as thin and snake like. Just my preference.
@James.k.Polk The former
@Gallen_Dugall Well, since Tolkien masturbated furiously to all things Germanic, and dragon was wyrm, which also meant snake, one can assume Smaug was meant to be more sinuous than lard-butt. Plus, a bronto with halitosis is much less a threat than something that combines size, speed, _and_ cornering ability (plus halitosis).
@Gallen_Dugall Snake-ified dragon? Like this one?
@Gallen_DugallAgreed, the wife and I watched and we simultaneously said "Man that's a much better looking Smaug"
@dilupus @James.k.Polk It would be hugely fucking impressive if the latter.
@Someguy @Timely-Tardis-Lego I'M NOT A BLOCKHEAD! ...I'm a Squircle.There's a difference.
@James.k.Polk @Gallen_Dugall Asian and Aztec style dragons are not my cup of tea
@James.k.Polk @Gallen_Dugall Maybe we can meet somewhere in the middle?
