Just went you thought the next My Little Pony movie couldn’t get any better!

It was announced at this past weekend’s San Diego Comic Con by Hasbro that singer Sia has signed on to contribute two original songs for the soundtrack for the 2017 film.   

As the movie is already set to be a event with a star-studded cast that includes: Liev Schreiber, Taye Diggs, Emily Blunt, Kristen Chenoweth, and Uzo Aduba–My Little Pony: The Movie will most liklely be rolled out to all markets around the world.  Which is nice considering how the last couple Pony movies have seen tiny releases theatrically.

My Little Pony: The Movie will be directed by Jayson Thiessen and it is written by Meghan McCarthy–both of which, as everyone knows, are more or less the backbone of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

While much hasn’t been released yet in regards to the story-line for the upcoming Pony movie, what we do know is that the Mane 6 will be embarking on an adventure to meet new friends but also endure challenges through their quest to save their home.

Apparently, Equestria will be in trouble.
