MY LITTLE PONY
The MY LITTLE PONY brand is returning to Comic-Con this year with extra special activities for everypony as Hasbro anticipates the exciting premiere of MY LITTLE PONY: THE MOVIE, which will be released by Lionsgate on October 6th. Making her premiere at the Hasbro booth will be a dazzling eight-foot tall statue of Songbird Serenade; fans can get up close to the new character, voiced by singer-songwriter Sia in MY LITTLE PONY: THE MOVIE. Fans can also dive into Seaquestria with a one-of-a-kind photo opportunity or get “Ponified” at the Hasbro booth at special “Ponification Stations” where make-up artists will apply Cutie Marks and “ponified” hair and nails for fans of all ages.

Songbird Serenade Sculpture
And here is Sia’s character, Songbird Serenade. I have to be honest and say I have no clue what I’m looking at, beyond someone’s OC and obviously a character from the movie. Maybe she’s been in the show, but I literally stopped watching at the 100th episode so I really do not have a clue what is going on anymore. Good thing I’m the “Editor in Chief” of the oldest FiM media sites, the rest will follow by example. Honestly though the movie looks at least fun, and we probably would have had some fun reporting about it around here at ye old Derpy News, back when there was actual people here, and not a virtual representation of Flint, Michigan (don’t drink the water).
That’s pretty much it for now, I’m sure with the SDCC and upcoming movie, that PR firm will toss some more kindling into the mailbag. Oh yeah, there is also HASCON, which we were told you can use the promo code FANMILY to get $20 off adult tickets and $10 off children tickets until July 23rd. They also invited us to be a part of the press, or at least attempt to register. To the Derpymobile!
