Actress Emily Blunt Playing a Possible Villain in New Pony Movie

bluntpony-169511

The USA Today’s Entertainment Blog recently spoke with actress Emily Blunt.   Blunt was kind enough to mention her upcoming work on the My Little Pony movie:

Blurb from Popsugar:

PS: What other movies of yours are you excited to show your kids?

EB: The animated ones; I did Animal Crackers with John [Krasinski], which was so fun and cute. And I did My Little Pony, though I’m a nasty pony in that, which was kinda fun. I’m excited about Mary Poppins. I think Salmon Fishing in the Yemen’s a really good movie. I think some of these movies where I’m making out with other guys, they’re gonna be like “Ewww!”

So it turns out that Emily Blunt may be playing a villain in the new Pony movie.  Which is an interesting casting choice!   But, we think it’s a wise one and we’re really excited about the new movie!

According to this source, there is a Minty Build-A-Bear in the works!   In the past the My Little Pony Build-A-Bear’s have sold amazingly well, and they’ve went out of stock long before everyone had a chance to get one.  We here at Brony.com have tried to report when they MLP Build-A-Bears have come out when they have, and we’re happy that we’re able to report the next series ahead of their actual release date.

We’re not actually sure when the Minty Bear will be available, but considering how it’s already appearing in the above paper ad from Build-A-Bear, it seems like that it won’t be too long from now.

Watch the Build-A-Bear website HERE or check in at your local Build-A-Bear store.

Calm Down Internet! MLP is NOT switching from Discovery Family To Netflix

mlfw1173_medium
When it was announced that Legend of Everfree would debut on Netflix, fans of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic have been theorizing online that the show itself would be following suit and leaving Discovery Family for the streaming site.  This isn’t true.  As you can see from this recent Hasbro PR Quote:

“Apologies for the delay on this! Don’t have an answer on the UK scheduling…however Hasbro can confirm that My Little Pony Friendship is Magic is not switching to Netflix for Season 7. “

Obviously, MLP:FIM isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, so it’s a safe bet to consider that MLP:FILM will be not only still a part of Discovery Family but will also, as have previous seasons of the show, continue to be streaming on the pay service as has been the norm previously when it comes to the upcoming Season 7.

With the political aura heating up to a frenzy, Mad Magazine has taken to poking at Hillary Clinton in their upcoming issue.   Except this time, they’ve taken their lampooning to an entirely different level by making Hillary Clinton a My Little Pony.

Calling the feature piece “My Little Phony,” Mad Magazine points out “a few of the times when the former secretary of state was caught fibbing, but in a cartoon horsy form.”

The digital issue will be released Friday and the magazine will hit stands Oct. 11.
