Variety reports Hasbro Studios is moving forward with a My Little Pony movie. The film, which will be written by Joe Ballarini, is scheduled for a 2017 release. As toys, My Little Ponies were first introduced in 1983. Since, they’ve gone through many incarnations on TV and direct-to-video movies; most recently, they can be seen in the very popular My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic series. Though 2013’s My Little Pony: Equestria Girls and 2014’s Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks had very limited theatrical runs, this upcoming feature would be the franchise’s first wide release. So if you see a bearded man crying while wearing a colorful wig with a horn sticking out of it, you’ll know.
