Founded back in the 1980’s, this popular pony series first originated as a small toy line by Hasbro featuring colourful bodies, manes and a unique symbol on one or both sides of their flanks. Soon after the toy range was launched, these fun and colourful characters made their debut on our TV screens, with the animated series starting from ‘My Little Pony n Friends’ and ‘My Little Pony Tales’ through to the more recent ‘My Little Pony Friendship is Magic’. Today, My Little Pony is still going strong and is one of the most sought-after children’s brands in the UK. 


We were very excited when the new CGI movie ‘My Little Pony: A New Generation’ launched on Netflix on 24th September, allowing fans like us to watch from the comfort of our own homes. With Equestria having lost its magic, we follow Earth Ponies Sunny and Hitch, Unicorn Izzy, Pegasi Pipp and Zipp as they team up for a mission which is full of misadventures. But as these new best friends each possess their own unique and special gifts, could it be just what is needed to restore the magic and prove that even little ponies can make a big difference?


This much-anticipated movie is perfect for the whole family, full of fun, friendship, and adventure. Starring the voices of hilarious American actor Ken Jeong and renowned voice-over James Marsden to YouTube phenomenon Liza Koshy and popular actress Vanessa Hudgens. If you haven’t seen it yet, make sure you plan a family film night and enjoy! And don’t forget to let us know if you loved it as much as we did!


To celebrate the release of this entertaining movie, we also have some fun facts about ‘My Little Pony’ to share with you:


My Little Pony Fun Facts:

My little Pony was originally called My Pretty Pony.

My Little Pony: A New Generation is the first My Little Pony film to be created via computer generated imagery (CGI).

‘My Little Pony’ was the first Marvel Studios theatrical film to be released into cinemas.

There were originally 6 ponies: Snuzzle, Butterscotch, Blue Belle, Minty, Blossom, and Cotton Candy which were produced in 1982, known now as the ‘Flatfoot Pose.’ This is due to them being the only Ponies to have flat feet with heads facing forward and down.

The first TV special was called simply ‘My Little Pony’, which was first released in April 1984, although it was later renamed ‘Rescue at Midnight Castle’.
