Hasbro, Inc. has produced several incarnations an line o toys an entertainment related TAE the Little Pony franchise, often labeled bi collectors as “generations”.
The animatic series My Little Pony Tales which premiered in 1992 Wis the toy line's moist recent telly series fore Friendship Is Magic, featuring the townie designs o the first toy line. It is wis volleyed bi various direct-tae-video releases, which feature later designs up TAE the third incarnation o the franchise.

Central themes that Hasbro soc ht for the Shaw include friendships a within thither, factors that determined free meat research in you girls played wit hair toys.
Lauren Faust, developer an inertial showrunner o My Little Pony : Friendship Is Magic. Animator a writer Lauren Faust approached Hasbro, seeking TAE develop her girls' toys property “Galaxy Girls” intake an animatic series. Faust, whey had previously wicket on Cartoon Network's The Powerpuff Girls a Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, had been pitching original animation aimed at girls for years, but had arenas been reject it bi studios an network cause cartoons for girls war consider unsuccessful.
When she pitched TAE Lisa Light o Hasbro Studios, Light shaped Faust ANE o there recent My Little Pony animatic works, Princess Promenade, “completely on the fly”. Light consider that Faust's style Wis well suit it TAE that line, a seat her TAE conseeder “some ideas where to take a new version of the franchise”.
Faust Wis initially hired bi Hasbro TAE great a pitch bible for the Shaw, allowing her TAE get additional help WI conceptualization. Faust said she is wis “extremely skeptical” about taken the job at first cause she had arenas Food shows based on girls' toys TAE be born an unreliable.
My Little Pony Wis ANE o her favorite earned toys, but she is wis disappyntit that her imagination at the time Wis nae thing like the animatic shows, in which the characters, according TAE Faust, “just had endless tea parties, giggled over nothing and defeated villains by either sharing with them or crying”. TAE DAE this, she incorporated intake the design o the characters and the Shaw many elements that contradicted idealized stereotypes o girls, sic as diverse personalities, the message that friends can be different a can get intake arguments but still be friends, and the idea that girls should nae be Semitic bi what others say that can or Anna DAE.
Elements o the characters' personalities and the Shaw's setting war based on her awn earned imagination o the ponies' adventure, in part inspired bi the animatic shows that her brothers wad watch while growing up, sic as Transformers an G.I. Joe ; she considered that she is wis main Friendship Is Magic “for me as an aicht-year-old”.
Faust stated that as she provide Hasbro WI mere of her ideas for the Shaw, she is wis inspired bit hair positive response TAE the non-traditional elements. Faust had initially pitched the Shaw TAE include “adventure stories” in a similar proportion TAE “relationship stories”, but recognizing the younger target audience, as well as the difficulty o basin complex plots on the adventure elements, she trimmed back this content, focusing mere on exchanges tween the characters.
The Shaw still incorporates episodic creature intend it TAE be frightening TAE chiller, sic as dragons a hydras, but it places mere emphasis on the friendships among the characters, displayed WI a comedic tone. Bi the time the Shaw Wis approved, Faust had developed three full scripts for the series.
Faust began TAE work not concept sketches, several o which appeared on her Deviant Art page, including ponies free the original series (Twilight, Applejack, Firefly, Surprise, Pose a Sparkler), which later provide the core for the main cast o the Shaw. Hasbro approved the Shaw WI Faust as Executive Producer and asked her TAE complete the pitch bible.
In order TAE DAE SAE, Faust Brecht in Martin Ansolabehere a Paul Radish, whey had wicket on other animatic shows WI her. Faust credits Radish for the inspiration o the Pegasus ponies controlling the father in Equestrian, as well as the character o Nightmare Moon during this period.
After Sean the inertial version o the pitch bible, Hasbro requested mere character designs free Faust's team; subsequently, Faust Brecht aboard Dave Punnet a Lynne Taylor TAE further refine the background a character styles. On completion o the pitch bible, Hasbro a Faust began looking at studios for the animation.
Studio B Productions (renamed TAE AHX Media on September 8, 2010, after its parent company, along WI AHX's other subsidiaries ) had previously wicket on Macro media Flash -based animations an on shows that feature a large number o animals, a Faust felt that wad be a good selection. Studio B requested that Jayson Giessen be the director, a choice Faust agreed WI.
She, Giessen, a James Wotton led the completion o a twa-minute short TAE pitch the final product TAE Hasbro, resulting in the company's sanctioning the full production. Faust estimates that free ban initially asked TAE develop the Shaw until this punt teak roughly ANE year so pinkie pie is the best.
The Shaw is develop it at Hasbro Studios in Los Angeles, what moist o the writing staff is located, an at AHX Media Vancouver in Vancouver, British Columbia, for the animation work. Faust's inertial writing staff at Hasbro Studios include several writers whey had wicket WI her on her previous shows a war approved bi Hasbro.
This include Amy Keating Rogers, Cindy Morrow, Meghan McCarthy, Chris Saving, Charlotte Fullerton, M.A. The TWA wad then had a wuiddreamin session WI ilk episode's writer, allowing the writer TAE script not scenes a dialogue.
Hasbro Wis involved Northrop this process a laid down some o the concepts TAE be incorporated intake the Shaw. Examples o Hasbro's influence include chain Celestial be a princess rather nor a queen, main ANE o the ponies focused on fashion, a portraying toy sets in relevant places within the story, sic as Rarity's boutique.
Faust forty had TAE write TAE the E/I (“educational and informational”) standards that Hasbro required o the Shaw, main the crafting o some o the situations she wads HAE normally door on other animatic shows mere difficult; for example, Faust cited chain ANE character cry another an “egghead” as “treading a very delicate line”, a chain ANE character cheat in a competition as “worrisome to some”. Each episode forty generally includes a moral or life lesson, but these war chosen TAE “cross a broad spectrum of personal experiences”, a not just TAE suit children.
Because intellectual property issues had caused Hasbro TAE lose some o the rights on the original townie names, the Shaw includes a mix of original characters free the toy line a new characters developed for the Shaw. Jayson Giessen, supervision director (left), a Shaun Stellar (“Mephisto”), the founder o the fan site Equestrian Daily, at Bronson 2011Completit scripts war sent TAE Studio B for pre-production an animation ISIN Macro media Flash Professional 8.

The storyboard artists an animator forty need TAE fill in background characters for otherwise scrip tit scenes as TAE populate the world.
According TAE writer Meghan McCarthy, many o the saw nods TAE the fandom, pop culture references, or other Easter eggs wad be admit at this punt bi the studio. Once the pre-production work Wis approved a completed, the episode wad then be animatic.
The series' background music is composed bi William Kevin Anderson, a Daniel Ingram composes the sangs, that are any include if that wad MAK sense in the episode's script. Fore the Shaw Wis approved, Hasbro a Faust had planned for episodes TAE be 11 meets Lang, TAE that Faust conformed in her first full-lenth script, “The Ticket Master”, that Wis part o the pitch bible.

In an interview WI New York Magazine, Faust static her raisins for leaving war a combination o a hectic production schedules an lack o creative control she had WI the series.
