Hasbro taps Nick Confalone for yet another Equestria Girls Special
It was unveiled this weekend at San Diego Comic-Con that writer Nick Confalone will be continuing on with the Equestria Girls. Confalone, a former story editor, was behind the super-fun July-broadcasted My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rollercoaster of Friendship as well as the aired-earlier-this-year TV special My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Forgotten Friendship. Both 1-hour TV specials received excellent ratings and reviews across the board. Confalone, though, has been involved with Hasbro and the Ponies since 2015. As a show writer on My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Confalone wrote such episodes of the series as “Party Pooped (S5,E11), “Hearthbreakers” (S5,E20), “No Second Prances” (S6, E06), “The Saddle Row Review” (S6, E09), ” Dungeons & Discords” (S6, E017), “Rock Solid Friendship” (S7, E04), “The Maud Couple” (S8, E03), and “The Break Up Breakdown” (S8, E10) which aired earlier this year in May.
The new Equestria Girls finds the gang taking off on a sailing trip on Spring Break. A teaser for the new Equestria Girls TV Special was shown for the first time this past weekend at SDCC. Watch the teaser, here.
