Emily Blunt Joins ‘My Little Pony’ Movie

Emily Blunt will voice a new character in the animated “My Little Pony: The Movie.”

Blunt joins Kristin Chenoweth, who is also lending her voice to a new character, with the “Mane 6” characters voiced by Tara Strong, Cathy Weseluck, Andrea Libman, Tabitha St. Germain and Ashleigh Ball.

The Hasbro and Lionsgate film will hit theaters worldwide on Nov. 3, 2017.

Jayson Thiessen is directing from a screenplay by Meghan McCarthy, writer and producer of the “My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic” animated series.

The story centers on Twilight Sparkle, Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, Fluttershy and Rarity embarking on a journey beyond Equestria, where they meet new friends and challenges on a quest to use the magic of friendship and 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 market and distribute in all territories 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 in 2014.
