‘My Little Pony’ Movie Gets Release Date

Lionsgate and Hasbro have set a Nov. 3, 2017, release date for the animated “My Little Pony” movie.

The film is Hasbro’s first from its Allspark Pictures. Kristin Chenoweth is voicing a new character alongside the Mane 6 characters voiced by Tara Strong, Cathy Weseluck, Andrea Libman, Tabitha St. Germain and Ashleigh Ball.

Jayson Theissen is directing from a screenplay by Meghan McCarthy, writer and producer for the “My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic” animated series. The story centers on Twilight Sparkle, Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, Fluttershy and Raritye embarking on a journey to save their home.

The pic is being produced by Stephen Davis and Brian Goldner for Hasbro’s Allspark Pictures. Lionsgate came on in August to distribute in all markets except China.

Introduced in 1983 and developed by Bonnie Zacherle, Charles Muenchinger and Steve D’Aguanno, the “My Little Pony” characters have colorful bodies, manes and distinguishing “cutie marks” on their flanks. The property has launched four animated series and racked up $1 billion in retail sales last year.

Disney-Marvel’s “Thor: Ragnarok” has also been set for Nov. 3, 2017.
