The My Little Pony Official Youtube channel has put up this teaser for season 5. While nothing really new has been shown, we can confirm one thing: season 5 is coming Spring 2015.
In this weeks edition of In Case You Missed It, it was announced earlier last week that Hasbro was planning on purchasing DreamWorks Animation and was currently in talks with the company. The merger would have created a new family entertainment company possibly dubbed DreamWorks-Hasbro (DreamHasbro or just DreamBro would have been better), with DreamWorks CEO Jeffery Katzenberg as the new fearless leader. This information was leaked by the press on Wednesday, and by Friday the deal was dead.
Various random sources across the internet cite the various reasons as to why the deal died. Most agree that Hasbro may have been spooked by the stock fluctuations that occurred after the information was leaked. Upon announcement of the deal, DreamWorks’ stock went up 14%, while Hasbro’s stock dropped 6% (or 300 million dollars). In short, their investors were not too keen on adopting the Lord of the Onions franchise. There was also the deal itself, as Hasbro had offered the studio 2.3 billion dollars for the company, but DreamWorks stuck with a price tag of 3 billion. On top of the 3 billion price tag was also the $35 per share on DreamWorks’ stock. While their stock jumped 14% after the announcement of the merger, it was only worth $25.52 per share.
And there are of course the various other theories, such as Hasbro’s dealings with Disney and or the fact that Mr.Katzenberg would be head of this new company, while its Brian Goldner’s Hasbro discussing buying the studio. We are not journalists but humble data gathers, thus you get to figure it out.
The tl;dr version was Hasbro offered to buy DreamWorks, but the deal was not sweet enough.
