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 difference.”
