My Little Pony #1 will feature the characters from the Netflix film My Little Pony: A New Generation, which debuted last year (see “‘My Little Pony’ Goes to Netflix”): Sunny Starscout, Izzy Moonbow, Zipp Storm, Pipp Petals, and Hitch Trailblazer, collectively known as the Mane 5, and their sidekick Cloudpuff, a fluffy winged Pomeranian. The plot of the first story arc involves a quest for a stolen Unity Crystal, without which Equestria will lose its magic.
IDW wound up its My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic series last year (see “‘My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic’ to End with Issue #102”) and followed up with a new mini-series, My Little Pony: Generations. The publisher lost two other Hasbro licenses, for G.I. Joe and Transformers, but stated at that time that it would continue to produce My Little Pony and Dungeons & Dragons comics (see “IDW’s G.I. Joe and Transformers Licenses to Conclude at End of Year”).
