GOING THEATRICAL: Hasbro’s “My Little Pony Equestria Girls”

GOING THEATRICAL: Hasbro's "My Little Pony Equestria Girls"

Sensing some money from the Brony fanbase, Screenvision
has teamed up with Hasbro Studios
and Shout! Factory to bring the full-length
feature, My Little Pony Equestria Girls to theaters across the U.S. and
Canada beginning June 16th. Here’s the trailer:

“We are so pleased to
partner with Screenvision and work once again with Shout Factory to create a
brand new way for audiences to experience MY LITTLE PONY,” said Stephen Davis,
president, Hasbro Studios. “We are thrilled that EQUESTRIA GIRLS will be seen
on the big screen and available at-home, everywhere Pony fans are watching our
beloved characters.

Little Pony Equestria Girls
is a brand new full-length feature – originally produced for direct-to-video sale and to be telecast as a special on The Hub channel – which introduces a whole new dimension into the My Little Pony world. It turns the pony characters into human girls. 

“When a crown is stolen from the Crystal Empire, Twilight Sparkle pursues the
thief into an alternate world where she transforms into a teenage girl who must
survive her biggest challenge yet…high school. With help from her new friends
who remind her of Ponyville’s Applejack, Rarity, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie and
Fluttershy, she embarks upon a quest to find the crown and change the destiny
of these two parallel worlds.”

Yep, it’s going theatrical – limited playdates, but theatrical nonethless. Here’s the one sheet:

Um, this really isn't aimed at bronies; it's aimed more at the Bratz/Monster High crowd, as Hasbro is using it to launch their upcoming Equestria Girls fashion dolls. And the response from the brony community has been… mixed, with those looking forward to it outnumbered by those who passionately hate it.

Very intersting site.

One of my friends who's a Brony doesn't think this film will be too good, but is seeing it anyway as a limited release. The trailer poster doesn't look that bad though. Good luck to everyone who worked on this film!

I've never watched any of the MLP: FIP episodes nor does it sound like something I'd be that interested in, but I can understand why this show has such a huge fan base.

I smell a spin-off.

I would have thought the japanese would get to this first.
