Watch The Trailer for Equestria Girls Now
Equestria Girls will be released across the United States in over 200 theaters in June. Hasbro created Girls, to co-exist with Friendship Is Magic. Girls will exist in a parallel world in which the ponies from Friendship Is Magic have been re-conceived as teenage girls in high school.
Hasbro has recently said in a statement with the N.Y. Times that their reasoning behind creating such a show is so that fans can “respond to the brand in different ways.” Fans of the show often imagine themselves in the role of the pony of their choosing so why not deliver that onto the big screen and on the Hub Network?
Writer of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic and the new Equestria Girls movie, Megan McCarthy has stated recently that “our goal was to stay true to who the characters are. It’s new but still an extension of our mythology.”
In addition to the Equestria Girls movie, Hasbro also plans on releasing a Girls line of toys, apparel and publishing as well to tie it all together.
