From its toy launch in 1983, MY LITTLE PONY has catapulted from iconic toy into a worldwide entertainment universe. In September 2021, MY LITTLE PONY: A NEW GENERATION launched on Netflix and introduced a new generation of ponies to a new generation of kids. The feature-length film became the #1 kids property at launch and was awarded the Common Sense Media Seal for Families. The movie kick-started a new era for the brand, with a focus on inspiring todays’ kids to explore, express and celebrate what makes them unique. This new generation of ponies has its own fresh toy line and licensed consumer products across multiple categories, with a wealth of content set to launch in 2022. MY LITTLE PONY has aired in nearly 200 territories and over 350 episodes and three feature films have been produced.
