Here is the official synopsis: “A new dark force threatens Ponyville, and the Mane 6 – Twilight Sparkle, Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, Fluttershy, and Rarity – embark on an unforgettable journey beyond Equestria where they meet new friends and exciting challenges on a quest to use the magic of friendship and save their home.”
The first My Little Pony toys were released by Hasbro back in 1981 and have gone through a number of iterations since then. There was a TV series called My Little Pony in 1986 and one called My Little Pony Tales in 1992. The franchise got a huge revival when the current series My Little Pony – Friendship is Magic premiered in 2010, spawning numerous films and even conventions. The seventh season of My Little Pony – Friendship is Magic is scheduled to premiere on The Hub on April 15, 2017. The show has won a number of awards, especially for the voice actors.
My Little Pony: The Movie will hit theaters on October 6, 2017. Do you watch the show? What do you think of the cast members? Are you looking forward to the new Sia song? Let us know your thoughts in the comments or tweet us @ComingSoonnet.
