Meghan McCarthy and the ‘My Little Pony’ cast are a very talented and cohesive team whom we’re happy to be working with and we’re excited about the addition of the very talented Kristin Chenoweth, as we explore new aspects of these characters and new story opportunities for the franchise,” said Lionsgate Motion Picture Group Co-President Erik Feig.
“We are thrilled to expand the ‘My Little Pony’ story to the big screen, and take these beloved characters on a new and unexpected journey that will delight fans of all ages. It’s an honor to add Kristin Chenoweth to the cast as the voice of an all new, never-before-seen ‘My Little Pony’ character in the film. Her incredible Broadway and silver screen performances in “Wicked,” “Glee,” and many more make her the perfect fit for this animated, musical adventure,”said Stephen Davis, Chief Content Officer, Hasbro, Inc.
