In the film, the unimaginable has happened... Equestria has lost its magic! Earth Ponies, Unicorns, and Pegasi are no longer friends and now live separated by species. But idealistic Earth Pony Sunny (Hudgens) is determined to find a way to bring enchantment and unity back to their world. Teaming up with open-hearted Unicorn Izzy (Glenn), the pair travel to faraway lands where they encounter the likes of charismatic and brave Pegasi Pipp (Carson) and Zipp (Koshy) and the ever-responsible fellow Earth Pony Hitch (Marsden). Their mission is full of misadventures, but these new best friends each possess their own unique and special gifts that may be just what this ponyverse needs to restore magic and prove that even little ponies can make a big difference.
Robert Cullen and José L. Ucha direct, with Mark Fattibene co-directing. The screenplay was written by Tim Sullivan and Gillian Berrow from a story by Cullen & Ucha, and Sullivan. Cecil Kramer and Peter Lewis produce.
