My Little Pony Gallops to Netflix with All-New Animated Feature Film and Series

My Little Pony

Hasbro‘s Entertainment One (eOne) has announced the highly anticipated all-new computer animated feature film based on the My Little Pony franchise will premiere on Netflix later this Fall. Fans can also look forward to the release of a new My Little Pony G5 series.

After a decade of heart-warming friendships, daring adventures, and endless laughs, the beloved pony world of Equestria is expanding to introduce a new generation of ponies to a new generation of fans. With even more humor, heart, and adventure, audiences will be swept away to a contemporary and immersive pony universe brought to life like we’ve never seen it before.

Animated by Hasbro’s Boulder Studio in Dublin, the new feature film is the first time the ponies will be seen in theatrical-quality CG animation. The movie is directed by Rob Cullen and Jose Ucha with Mark Fattibene as co-director. Cecil Kramer and Peter Lewis are producers.

In the new movie, the pony world of Equestria has lost its magic. (GASP!) Friendship and Harmony have been replaced by paranoia and mistrust, and Ponies now live separated by species. Sunny – a feisty and idealistic young Earth Pony – is convinced there’s still hope for this divided world… but her slightly misguided and often hilarious efforts to change hearts and minds have led to her being branded a misfit. When Sunny befriends a lost Unicorn named Izzy, who wanders innocently into the Earth Pony town of Maretime Bay, the town has had enough. Izzy and Sunny must embark on an epic adventure that will include a daring jewel heist, outrageous conspiracy theories, elaborate musical numbers, and the world’s cutest flying Pomeranian. Their adventures will take them to faraway lands and force them to challenge the status quo by facing their fears and making new friends out of old enemies. The world Sunny has dreamed of her entire life could finally become a reality as Sunny and her newfound friends fight to prove that even LITTLE ponies can make a BIG difference.

The adventures of Sunny Starscout and her friends will continue with an all-new, computer-animated series coming to Netflix.

The My Little Pony entertainment releases will be accompanied by toys informed by the updated animation style in addition to a robust portfolio of licensed products across fashion, home, publishing, and lifestyle categories.

The First Seven Cast Members of The Sandman Announced

After a lot of teasing and speculation, the cast of The Sandman is coming together. The Sandman is a live-action adaptation of the much-beloved comic series by Neil Gaiman. The series was picked up a year and a half ago by Netflix. The comic adaptation has been in the works for years and at one point was to be a film starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

The cast includes Tom Sturridge as Dream, Gwendoline Christie as Lucifer, Vivienne Acheampong as Lucienne, Charles Dance as Roderick Burgess, Sanjeev Bhaskar as Cain, Asim Chaudhry as Abel, and Boyd Holbrook as The Corinthian.

A rich blend of modern myth and dark fantasy in which contemporary fiction, historical drama and legend are seamlessly interwoven, The Sandman follows the people and places affected by Morpheus, the Dream King, as he mends the cosmic — and human — mistakes he’s made during his vast existence.

Review: The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina S4E6 “Chapter Thirty-Four: The Returned”

The show’s creative team decided to take pity upon us with “The Returned” after putting us through the emotional ringer in episode five but, they still came for us a little and toyed with our hearts. There’s a battle of the bands brewing and the latest Terror is bringing back the dead of Greendale, for better or worse. This episode was filled with equal parts camp and bittersweet sadness, taking you on an emotional roller coaster that is so satisfying, even with all that tears, that you don’t want to get off.

THE CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA S4E6 “CHAPTER THIRTY-FOUR : THE RETURNED”

Camp Level 11: Satanic Panic, a band that Harvey’s dad used to play with is back from the dead and they’ve got a bone to pick with Mr. Kinkle because he ratted them out and got them burned to death in a woodshed after a possible devil’s deal. It is every 80s teen movie about those darn satanic killers in the wood mixed with a huge dose of Sometimes They Come Back. It’s a nice C story that adds a bit of fun to the rest of the episode.

THE CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA S4E6 “CHAPTER THIRTY-FOUR : THE RETURNED”

Terms of Endearment: This episode has our characters coming face to face with their loved ones back from the dead but, they haven’t come to spread love but, pain and suffering and watching so many hearts get broken after everything they’ve already been through, it cuts deep, not as deep as the last episode but, I still got caught in my feels.

Overall: “The Returned” ended with a few more heartbreaks one of which I saw coming and had time to prepare for and one I didn’t see coming at all even with all the breadcrumbs that were dropped ever since one of my favorite characters entered the show! They also managed to put in a sweet moment that brings you to tears amidst all the sorrow only to have it boomerang and break your heart. This show consistently draws you in, makes you feel deep, real feelings for imaginary characters so definitely watch this episode but please, bring tissues.

Overall: 9.6

Review: The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina S4E5 “Chapter Thirty-Three: Deus Ex Machina”

THE CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA S4E5 “CHAPTER THIRTY-THREE: DEUS EX MACHINA”

The Mortal Realm: In “Deus Ex Machina“, Sabrina and Roz are co-Presidenting at Baxter High, where Nick has transferred to win OG Sabrina back. Hell is breaking through the mortal world. Lilith is hiding out at the Academy avoiding Hell and resigned to keep Adam away from hell until he 16 and can claim the throne.

The Infernal Realm: Future Sabrina is trying to clear out space in Hell because it’s overcrowding. The mortal world is breaking through to hell. Robin decides to stay with Theo and fight, instead of returning to the unaffected Fae Realm with his people because Theo refuses to go with him.

Heaven Help Us: Metatron comes down to offer a solution because every solution both sides come up with, the Sabrina’s can either kill one of them or merge. The Sabrina’s are given six hours to get their affairs in order before the merge Future Sabrina wants to spend it saying goodbye to her old friends and OG Sabrina wants to spend it with Nick.

Overall: There’s a lot of twists and turns in “Deus Ex Machina” that I left out because you have to see it to feel it and this episode was full of feels. I didn’t mention this episode’s terror because it is cosmic. Everything about “Deus Ex Machina” is heart-filled and centers upon personal sacrifices and all sorts of things that will make you cry, in fact, if you don’t cry at least twice during this episode, I will assume you have no soul or heart. There was a cute little cameo that we’ve been waiting for all season and it added a smile to my face. There’s also the heart-wrenching moment where Lilith faces the consequences of her actions and anyone with a heart feels actual sympathy for the devil. It was a lot going in expecting some simple horror camp and coming out the other end of the episode feeling emotionally drained and raw because you connected to everything that happened in the hour, that felt like more.

Rating: 9.8

Review: The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina S4E4 “Chapter Thirty-Two: The Imp of the Perverse

THE CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA S4E4 “CHAPTER THIRTY-TWO: THE PREVERSE”

So It Begins: Prudence sets out to murder her father just as he mugs the third terror of his Imp of the Perverse and makes himself the supreme ruler in “The Imp of the Perverse“.

THE CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA S4E4 “CHAPTER THIRTY-TWO: THE PREVERSE”

The Fright Club: In the warped reality Robin the hobgoblin gets to go full Flash, Theo gets deemed a witch for defending him, Harvey goes junior SS officer in his service to Blackwood, Roz and Sabrina have to save the Greendale in the horror camp female buddy drama that we all needed and Nick and Sabrina flirt in the face of death.

THE CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA S4E4 “CHAPTER THIRTY-TWO: THE PREVERSE”

The Third Terror: The Perverse is the Archieverse version of Loki and his level of petty mischief is kind of cool, he tells Ambrose how to reverse his own horror because Blackwood tries to pull a fast one and mugs him.

Overall: “The Imp of the Perverse” is a good one that has Sabrina focusing on something other than her love life and boys. In the end, she gets Nick back in a way that complements her instead of defining her. I really liked that Sabrina and Roz got to spend some sister/BFF time saving the town and restoring things. This episode had a fun twist with a very 1984 style layout and a call to resistance and doing what is right in the face of authority and even death. Overall it knocks another terror off the list and traded the show’s usual fun time campy horror with a real cautionary tale that managed to still tie in with the way the series normally runs. This season seems very into isolating each episode and making it a good stand-alone story while still keeping it tied into the overall season arc.

Overall: 9.6
