Legends of Everfree Gets Emmy Nod

unnamedSome news that we can rejoice in!

My Little Pony: Equestria Girls: The Legend of Everfree has just been nominated for an Emmy for “Outstanding Original Song.”    We can find out if “Everfree” is the winner at the 44th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, which is set for April 30th, 2017.

“The Legend of Everfree” was composed by Daniel Ingram and the lyrics were written by Ingram, as well as Joanna Lewis and Kristine Songco.    To be sure, this certainly isn’t Hasbro’s first Emmy nomination.  The studio has been nominated in the past 5 years alone for 27 awards.

 Daniel Ingram, the lyricist, and composer behind Legend of Everfree, also received a nomination last year in the same category for his original song featured in Season 6 of Discovery Family’s My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

The nominated song, “Legend of Everfree,” hails from Hasbro Studios’ popular My Little Pony movie special, My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Legend of Everfree, the third installment of the brand’s popular spin-off series. The nomination continues a stellar track record of success for Hasbro at the Daytime Emmy’s.

Season Seven Begins Airing on April 15th, 2017.

William Shatner is Back on Bronies

Capture

Captain Kirk aka William Shatner is tweeting about My Little Pony again.   This marks his first tweet about MLP since last year.   This tweet is simple, direct, and right to the point.    When will Shatner have a voice role on My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic?   We’d love to see Shatner on the show, but a question remains: who would be voice?

 

Actress Zoe Saldana added to upcoming My Little Pony: The Movie!

 

MLP_Movie-Logo_Characters1

Boy, this list keeps getting better and better!

Actress Zoe Saldana, whom may know for her role in James Cameron’s Avatar and James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy will be part of the upcoming My Little Pony: The Movie.   The movie has quite the A-list collections of actors involved from Kristin Chenoweth, Emily Blunt, Taye Diggs, Liev Schreiber, Sia, Uzo Aduba, Michael Pena, and now Zoe Saldana.   Of course, this collection of names will not effect the appearance of the usual Mane 6 who, as everyone knows, is voiced by Andrea Libman, Tara Strong, Ashleigh Ball, Tabitha St. Germain, and Cathy Weseluck.

New Book: My “Early Reader” Coming in July 2017

51asapmh6lIt’s never too early to start reading.    Which is why Hasbro is releasing Applejack’s Sister Surprise on July 13th, 2017.   An early reader, for many young ponies this might be [their] first MLP adventure outside of the television show.

Applejack loves her little sister, Apple Bloom.  But when they have a big fight, Apple Bloom runs away!  Can Applejack and her sister learn to be friends?    With all your very favorite My Little Pony friends and simple language endorsed by an actual literacy consultant, for young ponies–learning to read might never be as fun as it can be with Applejack’s Sister Surprise.

Right now you can pre-order the Pony early reader via Amazon United Kingdom here, but it seems obvious that it’s only a matter of time before it makes it way to Amazon US for pre-order as well–most likely, [this] will happen in the next year in early 2017.

My Little Pony Magazine To Give Baby Flurry Heart Figure Out in Early 2017

my-little-pony-uk-magazineNote:  We’re a little unclear as to if the French version of the MLP Magazine or the UK version will feature the figure, or both.

As good as the news is that the My Little Pony magazine will be featuring another figure in early 2017 (potentially issue #66 or #67), the question remains:  why isn’t the My Little Pony more easily available in the United States and Canada?

The word on the interwebs is that the magazines will be putting our figures by Egmont all throughout 2017 with various issues that go to press.    And most likely, the first figure that will be accompanying the magazine will be a  Baby Flurry Heart figure.

Let’s cross our figures that everyone who’s anyone who wants the figure and the latest issues will be able to order them online without much problem.
