“Our magical My Little Pony makeover is inspired by our fans who are looking for more ways to experience their favourite characters from the My Little Pony world. We are also bringing the magic to life with all new ways to play so our fans can experience the magic through engaging new products.

“We hope fans of all ages will enjoy exploring a fun new side of friendship and all the new story magic My Little Pony: Pony Life has to offer as we gear up for the launch of the all new My Little Pony movie from Paramount on September 24, 2021.”
