The Comic-Con poster has the VAs' names on it.
That looks pretty epic, and really gives props to the main characters' voice actors.
Looks like production has finished.
It's been rated PG.
Sounds about right. Pretty much everything is PG these days

Hasbro may be planning on more after this. This article mentions that Boulder Media is developing theatrical films for MLP and Stretch Armstrong. As far as I know, they have nothing to do with the one coming out in a couple months.
So Hasbro's wants to throw their hat into the animated feature ring? I'm all for it. The Bay movies are kind lame, but the animated films could be good. At the very least they'll feature the robots more.
I really admire a studio for wanting to get into animated features and produce content frequently. Plus I know that if the movies suck, they'll eventually flop and they'll shut down, or work towards improvement. Either way, I wonder what the budgets will be like. Gonna be pretty low if its going to be done by Boulder. Also glad to see that studio grow.
As for more MLP theatrical movies, that solely depends on how well the first one does, and how well it needs to do to be considered a success. So let's not all get too excited just yet.
Also, if Hasbro gets serious with animated features, they'd be in direct competition with their biggest licensee (licensor?): Disney. They might not be too happy about that.

I like how this one, unlike the main trailer, actually credits the main characters voice actors.
Has anyone seen ads for it on TV yet?
I'm interested in seeing how they plan to promote the film. They're already promoting it through toy ads. But I wonder when they'll start making ads specifically for the film. How early they do it will determine how well this movie will do. If they don't ramp it up by next week, then it's gonna be a rough box office performance.

TBH I just want it to do better than The Emoji Movie, just to prove people will still take something with actual love and care put into it.
I was wondering that myself today. I know it's a kid's movie, but it's popularity calls for at least some decent TV advertisement.
Considering MLP's popularity and the Emoji movie being heavily criticized before it even premiered in theaters. I don't think you have to worry about the MLP film doing worse than the Emoji movie.
Good point; I forgot Emoji only got $171M worldwide after a month and a half, despite a relatively strong (but by no means stellar) opening weekend. It's just that sometimes huge profits go to films that really don't deserve it. Plus you know some people will actively avoid the film more than most other children's flicks on the grounds that it's ponies. "Smurfs: The Lost Village" would have straight-up flopped had it not been for the international numbers.
Same problem with the old trailer, Storm King doesn't get enough screen time. I have read the prequels, he is the main villain of the movie.
He's probably like Emperor Palpatine, who largely appears in the final act of the trilogy while Darth Vader does all the work.
How well do you guys think the movie will do. Based on it being MLP, I think the movie will be a modest success, at least earning its budget back at the box office when presales are taken into account. It'll be lucky if it earns over $100 million at the box office.
However, I wouldn't be surprised if it under performs, or straight up flops. It has been a lousy year for movies, and it is, ya know, My Little friggin Pony.
My gut says it will make around $200 million, when you factor in international numbers.
Though I just really want it to make more money than Emoji did; I don't usually say stuff like this, but it would be a rather big injustice if it didn't.
That is different, this is one off movie, not a trilogy.
I don't think he meant in the sense that this is a trilogy. I think he meant that like Palpatine, Storm King has someone else do the work.
