Hasbro Announces Plans for My Little Pony Film
According to a recent Variety report, Hasbro is currently on track to deliver yet another nostalgic and popular property to the big screen, this time it’s the My Little Pony franchise. The project is scheduled for a 2017 release, says the report.
The script will be penned by Ice Age 4: Continental Drift’s Joe Ballarini, and distribution will be handled by Hasbro’s new label, Allspark Pictures. No details have been released regarding the plot, but with the release date a full 3 years away, it’s hardly surprising.
With My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic’s massive following, the upcoming film will have a ready-made audience making this a far safer bet for the studio. Hopefully, they do a good job at it and we won’t have another Battleship on our hands.
