‘My Little Pony’: latest movie heads to Netflix, green light for new series (exclusive)

My Little Pony is coming to Netflix.

The latest CG animated film from Entertainment One (eOne), Hasbro’s entertainment studio, will be featured on the streaming service this fall, ET may exclusively reveal.

The studio has also greenlit a new animated series for Netflix, which will take place after the next movie and will focus on Sunny Starscout and her friends.

In the new movie, the world of the ponies of Equestria has lost its magic. Friendship and harmony have been replaced by paranoia and mistrust, and ponies now live separated by species. Sunny, an energetic and idealistic young Earth pony, is convinced that there is still hope for this divided world, but her somewhat misguided and often amusing efforts to change hearts and minds have called her a misfit. When Sunny befriends a lost Unicorn named Izzy, who innocently wanders the Earth Pony town in Maretime Bay, the town has had enough. Izzy and Sunny must embark on an epic adventure that will include a daring jewel heist, scandalous conspiracy theories, elaborate musical numbers and the world’s cutest flying Pomeranian. Their adventures will take them to faraway lands and force them to challenge the status quo by facing their fears and making new friends with old enemies. The world Sunny has dreamed of all her life could finally become reality as Sunny and her new friends fight to prove that even little ponies can make a big difference.

Animated by Hasbro’s Boulder Studio in Dublin, the new feature marks the first time Ponies will be seen in CG animation.

The film is directed by Rob Cullen and Jose Ucha with Mark Fattibene as co-director. Cecil Kramer and Peter Lewis are producers.
