My Little Pony is coming to the big screen next month, and with the bigger budget they were able to attract big named actors like Emily Blunt, Kristin Chenoweth, Liev Schreiber, Michael Peña, Sia, Taye Diggs, Uzo Aduba and Zoe Saldana. And where some of those name don't surprise me, Schreiber does. But we know that he was excited to play the villain because he says so in the featurette below.
The new cast talks about joining the world of Equestria and how they take the ponies outside of their safe borders to meet new characters. Peña tells us that they created his character after meeting him, pointing out that they're both short and like food. With the humor we see in the trailer and some of the big names, parents will be more likely to take their kids… so expect this to do pretty well at the box office.
The synopsis for the film reads:
A dark force threatens Ponyville, and the Mane 6 – Twilight Sparkle, Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, Fluttershy, and Rarity – embark on an unforgettable journey beyond Equestria where they meet new friends and exciting challenges on a quest to use the magic of friendship to save their home.
Lionsgate and Allspark Pictures present, a DHX Media production.
My Little Pony: The Movie hits U.S. theaters on October 6th and debuts in the U.K. October 20th.
