The Hub Premieres Hasbro's Feature Film 'My Little Pony Equestria Girls' Today
The HUB Network, a destination for kids and their families, will have the exclusive network television premiere of the Hasbro Studios' feature film, "My Little Pony Equestria Girls," today, September 1 at noon ET. The family movie is a whole new dimension into the world of My Little Pony.
In "My Little Pony Equestria Girls," Twilight Sparkle's crown is stolen from the Crystal Empire, and she must pursue the thief into an alternate world where she transforms into a teenage girl who must survive her biggest challenge yet...high school. With help from her new friends who remind her of Ponyville's Applejack, Rarity, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy, she embarks upon a quest to find the crown and change the destiny of these two parallel worlds.
"My Little Pony Equestria Girls" is executive produced by Stephen Davis, Chris Bartelman and Kristen Newlands. It stars the cast of "My Little Pony Friendship is Magic," including Tara Strong ("Twilight Sparkle"), Ashleigh Ball ("Applejack"; "Rainbow Dash"), Andrea Libman ("Fluttershy"; "Pinkie Pie"), Tabitha St. Germain ("Rarity"), and Cathy Weseluck ("Spike").
Leading into the premiere of "My Little Pony Equestria Girls" is the "Hub Network's My Little Pony Fan Favorite Poll" Winner Marathon(10:00 a.m. - noon ET), during which the "fan favorite" pony as voted by viewers will be unveiled. Voting for the "fan favorite" pony among the "mane six" (Twilight Sparkle, Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie, Rarity, Rainbow Dash, and Applejack) kicks off Thursday, July 18 at Comic-Con International: San Diego at the HUB Network booth (#4118). Online voting begins immediately following Comic-Con on Monday, July 22 at Hubworld.com/vote4ponies.
