Latest installment from the MLP universe trots into theaters on October 6.

As is fitting in the online age, Lionsgate Entertainment has released a first-look clip and movie poster for My Little Pony: The Movie via the film’s social media channels on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Directed by Jayson Thiessen from a screenplay written by Megan McCarthy, My Little Pony: The Movie features an all-star voice cast with Emily Blunt, Kristin Chenoweth, Liev Schreiber, Michael Peña, Sia, Taye Diggs, Uzo Aduba and Zoe Saldana, with an original song performed by Sia.

Andrea Libman, Tara Strong, Ashleigh Ball, Tabitha St. Germain and Cathy Weseluck -- the voice actors behind the “Mane 6” from Hasbro’s massively popular MLP: Friendship is Magic series -- also return to voice their roles.

Here’s the official synopsis:

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.
