With the ending of the 4th generation of My Little Pony, very little was known about how it would be evolving in the future. There was only an announcement of the 10th season of MLP: FIM in comics form and community rumors that the 5th generation would be done completely in CGI like Pixar movies.
On the 25th of February, an online event revolving around Hasbro’s investment plan took place, revealing new information about the 5th generation of My Little Pony with a screencap from the new movie and revealing 4 new characters. Namely Sunny Starscout, Izzy Moonbow, and Pipp & Hitch Trailblazer (Pipp is not in the video). This would be “the bridge” between generation 4 and generation 5.
