When I was a kid, I thought that My Little Pony was so cool. I had asked for a pony, thinking that my Dad would get me a real one. It was when I learned to be very specific with what I want, because he sure didn’t get the memo.
But I loved that plastic horse.
As we get older, sometimes we forget that other things are around and I sure as fuck forgot about these dolls. But the world hasn’t and a new My Little Pony movie is coming to Netflix.
My Little Pony: A New Generation will debut on Netflix on September 24, 2021. The film had originally been set for theaters, but you know, that whole worldwide pandemic thing changed that.
Netflix picked up the rights in February.
What’s this movie about? Well the official synopsis is, “The unimaginable has happened…Equestria has lost its magic! Earth Ponies, Unicorns, and Pegasi are no longer friends and now live separated by species. But idealistic Earth Pony Sunny (Vanessa Hudgens) is determined to find a way to bring enchantment and unity back to their world. Teaming up with open-hearted Unicorn Izzy (Kimiko Glenn), the pair travel to faraway lands where they encounter the likes of charismatic and brave Pegasi Pipp (Sofia Carson) and Zipp (Liza Koshy) and the ever-responsible fellow Earth Pony Hitch (James Marsden). Their mission is full of misadventures, but these new best friends each possess their own unique and special gifts that may be just what this ponyverse needs to restore magic and prove that even little ponies can make a big difference.”
It sounds cute. Vanessa Hudgens, Sofia Carson, Kimiko Glenn, James Marsden, Liza Koshy, Ken Jeong, Elizabeth Perkins, Jane Krakowski, Phil LaMarr, and Michael McKean are the voice talents for the film. That’s a talented roster.
