At least when it comes to Hasbro, 2017 will be the biggest year for My Little Pony. The company announced several releases around the popular colorful ponies. Not just new TV shows but also a movie are expected for the next year.
Ponies will return to TV
The entertainment company will renew two previously already very successful animated series staring the friendly ponies. My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and My Little Pony: Equestria Girls will both be making their return in 2017.
My Little Pony come to the big screen
Hasbro follows a plan with the renewals. With the shows they want to drive excitement for the animated feature film My Little Pony: The Movie. According to recent plans it will premiere worldwide on October 6, 2017.
More exciting pony licensing to come?
The big releases around the brand are very likely to also spark other licensing cooperation with the brand. During recent years My Little Pony appeared in Big Point’s Farmerama. It remains to be see if similar integrations will be launched around the movie and TV show debuts.
