Hasbro Officially Expands FiM Target Audience, FiM Movie?

Not just little girls anymore. 

How about some awesome news for you this morning? At a recent Hasbro investor event, interest was expressed in expanding the target audience of FiM to older audiences with a new IP, and it seems a MLP:FiM movie was announced. Have a quote from a summary of the event:

"Whoa! Mr. Frascotti acknowledged “Bronies”; thanked them for being great fans. My Little Pony TV Movie announced. He also mentioned that there will be a New IP for My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. This new IP is for Older Girls; Teenage and above. The name of the IP will be revealed at a special “Pink Carpet Event” at San Diego Comic Con 2013. My best guess is that this is the rumored “Equestria Girls” trademark."

Thoughts From Inside "Bronies", the Documentary

Yesterday we posted an update about the status of "Bronies", the Documentary, it accidentally got on Reddit, and one of the documentary's Assistant Editors, Nicolas, found that post and realized he was out of a job.

He then proceeded to write up his thoughts and perspectives in a very detailed manner and do an AMA about the whole experience. I said I'd do some research and write something up so that people could read it and have a functional understanding of what was happening with the documentary, but honestly I don't think I could do as good a job as this guy, so make sure to check out this awesome Reddit thread!

A candid, very detailed insider view of what's going on with the documentary has long been needed, so let's be sure to thank Nicolas and hope he gets a new job soon! Also thanks to Jordan Olling for notifying us / submitting this to the blog email.
