Hasbro Studios’ upcoming animated movie My Little Pony Equestria Girls will be distributed globally by Shout! Factory through DVD releases, as well as a variety of digital distribution platforms.
The feature-length film, which will be released globally in the coming months, puts a spin on The Hub’s My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic TV series. When a crown is stolen from the Crystal Empire, one pony pursues the thief into an alternate world where she transforms into a teenage girl who must chart her way through high school.
The My Little Pony brand has been good to both Hasbro and Shout!, as increasing global TV sales of the series have helped Hasbro’s bottom line in the past year, and the My Little Pony DVD product line already distributed by Shout! has been one of the company’s top drivers in its family home entertainment unit.
