Get excited everypony because a whole new series of ‘My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic’ is galloping its way to our screens. Discovery Kids has picked up a seventh season of the hit Hasbro Studios series, set to premiere with two back-to-back episodes on Saturday, April 15 at 11:30 a.m. / 10:30C.
This season promises some of the most exciting adventures yet, bolstered by a range of guest stars including William Shatner (Star Trek) and Felicia Day (Supernatural, Buffy the Vampire Slayer). Over more than 26 episodes, fans will join the Mane 6 - Twilight Sparkle, Rarity, Apple Jack, Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash & Fluttershy - as they encounter numerous new friends, including visits from Rainbow Dash’s over-enthusiastic parents and Twilight Sparkle’s adorable niece, Flurry Heart. Fans will also get to tap their hooves to five brand-new songs this season.
Ahead of the season’s launch Discovery Family will run every episode of the series in order during a “Pony Palooza” takeover marathon, kicking off at 6 a.m./5C on Saturday, April 8 and running all week long. Fans will have the chance to relive some of the series’ most iconic moments, from the crowning of Twilight Sparkle and birth of Flurry Heart, to the opening of Rarity’s Carousel Boutique, before celebrating with a confetti canon of new episodes.
The premier episodes, “Celestial Advice” and “All Bottled Up,” see Twilight Sparkle lament over Starlight Glimmer’s future before receiving some much appreciated wisdom from Princess Celestia. While the Mane 6 are on a friendship retreat, Starlight Glimmer loses Twilight Sparkle’s friendship map. Afraid her anger might get out of control, Starlight Glimmer casts a calming spell while the ponies search for the lost map.
