Hasbro has announced its latest big-screen nostalgia fest will be a brand new adaptation of My Little Pony, with Variety reporting the animated film is set to arrive in 2017.
The colourful characters, who first made their bow as toys back in 1983, have already appeared in four animated series, but this will be the first time they have been brought to the big screen.
Ice Age 4: Continental Drift’s Joe Ballarini is reportedly on board to pen the script, with the film set to be released through Habro’s new label, Allspark Pictures.
Nothing has been confirmed in terms of plot details, although the film may well be linked to recent series My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, which was an unexpected smash when it hit the small screen back in 2010.
Hopefully Hasbro will enjoy better success than met its last big-screen release, the disastrous Battleship back in 2012. Ponies are cuddlier than aliens after all…
