My Little Pony

The peculiar documentary A Brony Tale showed that there's plenty of surprising fans of the Hasbro toyline and animated series My Little Pony, but beyond that, the brand is still something that plenty of young kids adore too. That's what Hasbro Studios has just announced that they're bringing a My Little Pony feature film to theaters in 2017. The project hails from Allspark Pictures, who is launching their feature film venture with the adaptation of Jem and the Holograms hitting theaters in October of 2015. Hasbro will produce and finance the film in-house with the script by Ice Age: Continental Drift scribe Joe Ballarini.

Variety also says Megan McCarthy, producer and writer of the animated series "My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic,” as well as the home video releases "My Little Pony: Equestria Girls," is also serving as co-executive producer. My Little Pony has enjoyed a lot of success in recent years with several animated series that followed a revamp of the property in 2010. The question is whether a property like this can thrive on the big screen. The My Little Pony brand may have a built-in audience, but that's no guarantee that the movie will get butts in the seats in theaters. Will there be Brony parties lining up for it? We'll see.

    I'm not seeing the name Faust anywhere. I don't watch this show, but I'd recommend bringing her in even though I understand she's off of the show now.

    Well this was inevitable, still do not get how grown, non homo, men watch this girls show though. Would be surprised if a grown gay man watched this too actually.
    This site is not for "bronies"...
