These months are moving so fast. Luckily we have a season date, so I don't mind at all. April means another patreon celebration post, and lots of you have sent in stuff for it! As always, we are still looking for more ideas for rewards, but for now the current ones seem to be working well. Feel free to recommend any!
And thanks a ton to everyone still contributing. I was pretty worried that it would dip, but it's still holding strong. You have no idea how much that helps.
ANYWAY, Celebrate below with some... DERP. Go get it all below!
I thought we posted this already, but I guess not! We have a GIGANTIC version of the My Little Pony movie poster here, at a whopping 3750x5700 resolution. At that size, you could pretty much cover a wall with it if you could print it big enough. Click the image above to snag it.
Along with that, we have a mini presser covering primarily what we know already:
‘My Little Pony: The Movie’ is coming to theaters October 7th and will feature an all-star cast with Emily Blunt, Kristin Chenoweth, Liev Schreiber, Michael Peña, Sia, Taye Diggs, Uzo Aduba and Zoe Saldana, including an original song performed by Sia.A new dark force threatens Ponyville, and the Mane 6 (Twilight Sparkle, Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, Fluttershy, and Rarity) embark on an unforgettable journey beyond Equestria where they meet new friends and exciting challenges on a quest to use the magic of friendship and save their home.
I think that is the first time we've seen the "Friendship Comes in Many Colors" tagline too?
For those of you lucky devils attending the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo (C2E2) on the weekend of April 21st – 23rd, there's good pony news to be had! IDW Publishing is going to have an exclusive comic cover for everyone to enjoy!

Coming off of Toy Fair, things almost looked like they were going to be slow in comparison, but big projects and even bigger season 7 news made the month a lot more eventful than originally expected!
Below the break, get a full review of everything major that released in March of 2017, from show releases to fanworks that stood apart from the already heavily filtered flood that is the EQD front page. And if you missed other months, you can always catch up on those here at our month in review tag.

It's really nice to see Silverlay in a new comic series from EStories, I had really grown to like her!

Anyway, go get tons of canon and more below!

Description: My name is Twilight Sprinkle, and my passion is donuts—from the delicate morsels I serve at elegant cocktail parties to the hearty pastries enjoyed by hard-working ponies who get up early. I don’t have friends, I don’t have books, and I sure as the sun don’t have any wings. I don’t care whether you’re here for revenge, for romance, or for a favor. My name is Twilight Sprinkle and I’m not who you think I am, so either buy a donut or get the hay out of my store!

As I was reading the comments on the new movie trailer some of you were saying things were a little bit off with the animation they presented. Well, apparently you are not alone as the Art Director for not only the movie but season 5, Rebecca Dart, says things are a bit weird but that you guys should have hope.
Check on after the break for her comments!
Lionsgate and Allspark have finally put out their first trailer for My Little Pony: The Movie, and, uh, wow. ToonBoom ponies are something else, man (and I'm never getting all that glitter cleared off the inside of my computer screen)!
Head below the break for a taste of the new 2017 Poni models, coming to a show floor near you.
It looks like those chinese factories pumping out pony brushables aren't taking a break for the movie merchandise on leaks. These guys popped up on eBay the other day as a complete set. If you haven't seen them before, they were some of the items on display at Toy Fair this year. Usually when toys leak to eBay, it means they will begin their invasion of stores around the world soon, but I wonder if they are simply stocking up before a big release later in the year in this case? It would seem weird to have these so early, especially considering the first trailer hasn't even aired yet.
Anyway, we will keep you posted. Expect to see a lot of these throughout the year leading up to the movie.
Oh don't be a sourpuss, AJ. He grows on you after awhile! Just roll with it... Though you might want to watch out, I think all those things I described things he can prank you with somehow.
Morning guys, ready for a new day?
