Hasbro’s ‘My Little Pony: Equestria Girls’ Series Coming to YouTube

by Animation Magazine

Hot on the hooves of the highly anticipated new movie (out now through Lionsgate), Hasbro continues to find fresh pastures for its popular ponies. Just announced, a brand-new My Little Pony: Equestria Girls is set to launch on YouTube next month. Starting November 17, the 45-episode series will roll out a fun new adventure each Friday.

The digital series, set in a humanoid-populated parallel world to Friendship Is Magic, shows that the magic of Equestria cannot be contained! From after school clubs to beach days, music festivals to theme parks, and a rockin’ Spring Break on a yacht, Sunset Shimmer, Twilight Sparkle, Applejack, Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash and Rarity must navigate enchanted challenges as they learn what it means to be real superheroes … and survive high school.

Along with the series, Hasbro is releasing a new line of fashion dolls created in partnership with Laura Shuffman, the official My Little Pony: Equestria Girls celebrity stylist. The revamped dolls will have fresh, fashionable outfits, and helped inspire the look of the Mane 7 in the YouTube series. The new doll line will be available in the US in December, and globally beginning January 2018.
