My Little Pony: Pony Life is an animated series based on Hasbro's My Little Pony franchise that premiered on Discovery Family[1][2] on November 7, 2020,[3] and on YouTube.[4] It is a re-imagining of My Little Pony Friendship is Magic, featuring the same main cast of characters and with all their voice actors reprising their roles, but it will use a new animation style and have a heavier focus on slice-of-life stories with a more comedic tone.[5]

Series overview

"The new MY LITTLE PONY: PONY LIFE show looks at the funny side of friendship. The new center of the world is Sugarcube Corner – just like going to a friend's house after school, this is our ponies' home away from home. Here, Pinkie Pie serves up frosted cupcakes to the best customers in the worldβ€”her friends! PONY LIFE episodes feature hilarious, 'SLICE OF LIFE' stories that modern kids can relate to. The series is LOADED with magic, including a mysterious source of potions that Pinkie keeps hidden behind the bakery counter and breaks out when the need arises."[6]

Development and production

Prior to Pony Life's announcement, Spike's design for the series was used in October 8, 2019 posts on the My Little Pony Facebook page[7] and mylittlepony Instagram.[8]

November 5, 2020 Good Day Sacramento Tara Strong.[9]​[​specify​]​

Promotional videos

Pony Life was first officially announced in a video uploaded to the My Little Pony Official YouTube channel on November 13, 2019. The video featured new toys slated for release as tie-ins with the series and the characters' new animated designs, set to Lizzo's "Good as Hell".[5] The video was later set to private in December 2019.

A 60-second official trailer for the animated series was uploaded privately to the My Little Pony Official YouTube channel on June 1, 2020.[1] The theme song was uploaded privately to the same channel on June 3.[10] Both the trailer and theme song were made public on June 17 but were later set back to private. Starting June 18, promotional videos are uploaded to the YouTube channel every Thursday.

Toys and merchandise

Both pony and Equestria Girls toys and merchandise are scheduled for release as tie-ins to Pony Life. Initial releases include a brushable Rarity figurine with hair that grows and changes color, and miniature brushable "Potion Ponies" that come with surprise accessories. The "Potion Ponies" line also features new character Potion Nova.

Characters

Top row, from left to right: Rainbow Dash, Applejack, Twilight Sparkle.
Bottom row, from left to right: Pinkie Pie, Rarity, Fluttershy.

Like My Little Pony Friendship is Magic, most of the characters are ponies classified into three types: Earth ponies, Pegasi, and unicorns. The animation style used in Pony Life gives the characters a "chibi-fied" appearance, with large heads and small bodies.
