It’s a movie!!!!!!!!!!!!Coming out in June and getting the red carpet treatment in L.A. Afterwards will follow a DVD release and eventual Hub T..v. Network release in time.
“We are responding to the desire by our fans to experience the brand in more ways,” said John A. Frascotti, Hasbro’s chief marketing officer. “They imagined themselves as which pony they would be or which pony they identified with the most.”
“Our goal is to stay true to who those characters are,” said Meghan McCarthy, the head writer for the movie, adding that the high school setting allowed for new storytelling possibilities. “It’s new but still an extension of our mythology.”
It will connect to the fourth generation story that we all have gotten to love, but so far all we know is that Twilight Sparkle is the only pony that makes the jump. This is the first time that the company in charge of this franchise is putting forth some money to this brand. It’s starting to generate some real cash for them. A 23 percent rise in sales for their merchandise is a big plus. There are still a lot of unknowns here, could this become a series, will it replace the current? At least for now we know that we have a movie coming. Comment below and let us know your feels.
The New York Times News Service/Syndicate listed an image of the six main characters each as a pony and as a human, all under a My Little Pony Equestria Girls logo,and The New York Times itself published an article both online and in print, mentioning that Hasbro “plans to introduce a new extension this fall called Equestria Girls” to celebrate the My Little Pony brand’s thirtieth anniversary and including the image without the logo.
The new series is drawing closer, here is the lastest picture brought to you by the New York Times.
My Little Pony Fighting Game from Mane6. Any fan of MLP might have heard of this game. It’s a fighting game set in the world of My little Ponies. Originally meant to star the main cast.
The team has had many legal problems and have found an alternate way thanks to involvement form Lauren Faust who is providing them with original ponies for the game. The image above at the very top is the teaser image.
Now we have word that a kickstarter for Skullgirls, a lighting fast 2D fighting game with a very powerful fighting engine has succeeded in it’s fundrasing goal will help Mane6 with their fighting engine. The goal was $725,000 target that would allow Mane6 to use and distribute the Z-Engine for free as part of their new game. So in the future we get to have an original fighting game set in the pony universe.
