Animator Michel Gagné Signs On For Next My Little Pony Movie

final_logo_mergedIf you’re an animation lover as much as we are then you, no doubt, are very familiar with the name Michel Gagné.   Gagné an animator behind such work as The Land Before Time, An American Tale and All Dogs Go to Heaven is currently at work on the upcoming Sony animated Spider-Man movie.

From Michel’s blog:

On Jun 10 2015, I received an email from Jayson [Thiessen] enquiring about my availability and asking if I’d be interested in working on the My Little Pony movie. I didn’t know much about the franchise, but the thought of collaborating with Jayson was extremely appealing. I really like the guy!

Early this year, I was invited to Vancouver where I was pitched the project. The animation tests I was shown looked fantastic and the potential for amazing 2D FX is huge. I thought to myself, this will be a great canvas for my FX! It’s like they boarded part of the film with me in mind! At the time, I was still finishing up Battleborn, but my mind was pretty much set that this would be the next project I would tackle, once my obligations with Gearbox were over.
Then, came the call from Sony about the Spider-Man movie, another project I wanted to do (see previous post). I’m so glad that Sony and DHX were able to find a way for me to do both films.

So where does The Saga of Rex movie fit in? Well, this is where things stand: Grid Animation is STILL working on the financial/distribution side and as long as I keep renewing their option, I’m in a gridlock as far as that property goes. My goal is to get Rex into production as soon as I finish the two projects I’ve already committed to (MLP and Spiderman). Hopefully by then, Grid Animation will be ready as well.”

Oh My Gosh! My Little Pony: The Dragons on Dazzle Island Came Out This Week And We Missed It!

61ueek6tanlOopsie!  We here at Brony.com are a bit off of our game this week in wake of the Labor Day holiday….this is why we neglected to report the release of the latest Hasbro Pony volume earlier this week–My Little Pony: The Dragons of Dazzle Island.

Available in two different variations (apparently–there’s a regular and Barnes and Noble version), The Dragons on Dazzle Island features Rarity’s entire order of rare island gemstones and how it’s been canceled because of the Great Dragon Migration that has brought dragon’s to Dazzle Island.  But all hope is not lost as Fluttershy and Spike travel to the island and explain to the dragons why they need to move.  When our heroes reach Dazzle Island, they discover that it takes more than a few words to resolve Rarity’s problem.

Ready your hooves as you travel with Fluttershy and Spike to confront new dangers, help a fellow pony gain her cutie mark, and learn the true power in hugs!

You can order The Dragons on Dazzle Island here on AMAZON or here over on the Barnes and Nobles website.
