Funtasia Daily Five Year Anniversary

Oh, hello! It’s been a bit quiet around here for the last year, but we’re still here. That’s mainly because for the majority of the year, there has been little to report on besides some vaguely promising interviews and a surprise award nomination.

Filly Funtasia Episode Nominated at the Asia-Pacific Film Festival

In a bit of unexpected news, the Filly Funtasia episode “The Missing Student” has been nominated in the “Best Animation” category of the 58th Asia-Pacific Film Festival, which will be held on the 1st of September in Taipei, Taiwan.

(EDIT: Turns out we lost! "Fundamental" was the winner of the category.)

The episode in question, in case you don’t remember, is the one with the blue rainbow and the scene where Rose, Fabian and Zack walk through a cave. The fourth promo consists entirely of a long scene from this episode. You can also see snippets of the episode in the third and fifth promos, and we have also been able to see concept art from the episode in art posts.

Filly Funtasia’s competitors are “Funtamental” from Taiwan, and “Adi Sopo Jarwo” from Indonesia. The first one appears to be a short chaotic one minute video with an anti-religious message (I think? It’s not entirely clear what’s going on) while Adi Sopo Jarwo is also a 3D cartoon. Both are embedded below if you want to check out the competition.

We should find out if Filly Funtasia is Taiwan’s number one in a couple of days from the posting of this article, and then we’ll hopefully be able to write an update about Filly Funtasia winning awards even before its release.

Dracco Sells UK Branch

In another piece of news about the companies involved in Filly Funtasia, Dracco has sold its UK branch, Dracco UK, a company which primarily functioned as a toy distributor for non-Dracco toys.

The enterprise in question began as a UK toy distributor called The In Thing. In 2011, Dracco acquired 50% of the company and in 2014, Dracco bought the remainder of the company, redirecting its former website, theinthing.com, to dracco.co.uk.

On the 16th of July, Dracco officially sold Dracco UK to Cathryn Dunstan, who is a member of their management team. The company was renamed Bliss Distribution Ltd, and dracco.co.uk now redirects to blissdistribution.co.uk.

Dracco UK never actually sold any Dracco properties from what we know, and indeed sold the properties of their main competitors. According to an interview in Toyworld Magazine, Dracco co-founder Henrik Andersen says: "The sale supports Dracco’s strategy to focus on its core business and increase our investments in brand development and global sales of our Dracco branded product range.".

While not mentioning Filly by name, this is a vaguely encouraging sign for the franchise’s future considering how Filly is currently Dracco's main property and thus the likely target of a focus on Dracco's brand development.

Filly Funtasia's Release Date Possibly Expedited

A week ago, yet another set of two articles were published in the Danish press featuring interviews with brothers Jacob and Henrik Andersen, the two founders of Dracco. This time, we find our cartoon information in Jyllands-Posten, where among other things, it’s revealed the release date of Filly Funtasia might have changed… to an earlier one than the last one we were given?

Fan Music: Promo 3 Song Rearrangement

In a relatively short break between the news, we've got something to ease the nerves. A pony and Filly enthusiast Princess Twibug has taken the time to produce a few music tracks, two of which revolve around the song from Filly Funtasia Promo 3: an extended "radio edit" and a remix. The song is over four years old by now, yet it still gets attention! Hopefully the same can be said about the show itself.

Follow the link to Twibug's channel to check out the songs, or use the embeds below. Either way, enjoy!

Big Announcement: Filly Funtasia Switches Format

(April Fools 2018!)

A recent press release has unveiled that the Filly Funtasia license has been given to Hasbro, who have stated their desire to "incorporate Filly Funtasia into one of [their] existing popular brands." After years and years of unfortunate events regarding the development process of Filly Funtasia, it seems like it has finally found some ground to stand on!

Filly Funtasia is no longer a standalone animated series, but a valuable addition to Hasbro's long lasting franchise full of magic and enthralling locations, both colorful and spooky.

Filly Funtasia in 2019

It’s been a while since we had anything to report. In fact, there’s been no official communication of note about Filly Funtasia since BRB disavowed the show in late 2016 and no official communication of note about Filly in general since Dracco signed a deal with Goliath in spring 2017. Accordingly, we haven't posted any articles at all on Funtasia Daily for about half a year as there hasn't been much to report on. Considering all of this, it would not be too unreasonable to think Filly Funtasia has simply been abandoned and forgotten by everyone.

But it has not. The founders of Dracco, brothers Henrik and Jacob Andersen, have conducted an interview with Danish business website Finans.dk where they reveal, among other things, that Filly Funtasia has a new projected release date - 2019.

The information is divided into two rather long articles. Both of them are in Danish and one of them is locked behind a paywall, so this article will contain a summary of the information in both of them along with background information for context.
