    Lions gate and Hasbro are handling the big screen version, and Meghan McCarthy is writing.

    look it up. You're bound to get lots of schnixel.

    --

    apparently this movie is going to be animated in Toon Boom rather than the usual Flash? (same company though) It sounds interesting to see it animated differently than the show. Some of my favorite shows are/were animated in Toon Boom (Wander Over Yonder, formerly Mixels) so I bet the animation quality might improve a bit. Not sure though since they were impressively good with Flash.

    (but that's just me nitpicking on details)

    Hasbro has now set a date for the movie: November 3, 2017. That's the first Friday in November, when movies like Wreck-It Ralph, Big Hero 6, and most recently, The Peanuts Movie, have been released. Movie number 2 from Allspark Pictures should be a much better effort and film than movie #1: Jem and the Holograms.

    Has there been any real confirmation that this movie is going to be based on "Friendship is Magic" specifically? It could be an all new incarnation, you know.

    I wonder if there will be enough people who will pay to see this because DTV wouldn't have been a bad option. Has the budget for the movie also been revealed?

    Looking forward to this immensely. I hope it'll be good and do the show justice.

    The principal voice actors for the series will reprise their roles for the movie. I think it's safe to say it will be connected to FiM.

    They could be totally different characters with the same names. Just saying.

    You're technically not wrong. Anything is within the realm of possibility at this point. Butt I think it's far more likely that we'll get the G4 cast we know and love. I don't think Hasbro would risk turning away fans of the show by giving us a new set of characters.

    I think the chances of Hasbro making more money with the G4 cast would be alot higher anyway.

    Toon Boom is reportedly involved in the animation process, so presumably 2D.

    Anyone worried the movie will underperform at the box office?

    Even with the online popularity of FIM, I don't know if the movie will draw enough public interest since it's still My Little Pony. The budget of the movie will need to be considered too because if it isn't too high, the movie still has a chance of being somewhat of a profit even if it "underperforms".
