The My Little Pony Facebook page has put up a preview of this Saturday’s episode. Check it out after the break.
Shout! Factory’s new MLP DVD, Soarin’ Over Equestria contains five episodes, one of which is a new season 6 title, The Fault In Our Cutie Marks. The title of the DVD and other four episodes seem to imply these are all Rainbow Dash or Fluttershy episodes, so that may be the case for the new episode with no known synopsis yet as well. This title was also listed as episode 9 on IMDB several months ago.
The sky’s the limit with these five high-flying adventures, featuring all of your favorite winged Ponies! Join Twilight Sparkle, Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, the Wonderbolts and, of course, Applejack, Rarity, Pinkie Pie, and Spike, as they show you Equestria the way it was meant to be seen… from above!
While the show missed out on winning an Emmy, last Saturday, and the Hugos awaiting in August, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic was nominated for three Leo Awards. The Leo Awards honors achievements in film and television produced in British Columbia.
MLP was nominated for three Leos. Marcel Duperreault, Todd Araki, Jason Fredrickson, Kirk Furniss, Adam McGhie, Christine Church, and Roger Monk were nominated for Best Sound in an Animation Program or Series for “Do Princesses Dream of Magic Sheep?” The same group, sans Kirk Furniss, are also nominated for Littlest Pet Shop in the same category for “Littlest Pet Shop of Horrors” as well as for Super Noobs (with Kirk Furniss this time) for the episodes “NoobyFriday” and “Noobinators 2”.
Daniel Ingram has two nominations in the Best Musical Score in a Animated Program or Series category—one for MLP for “Crusaders of the Lost Mark”, and one for Nina’s World and “Nina’s Birthday.” MLP composer Stefan Andrews was nominated in the category for Endangered Species and “Where No Stump Has Gone Before.”
Ashleigh Ball will represent MLP in the Best Performance in an Animated Program or Series for her portrayal of Rainbow Dash in “Tanks for the Memories.” Fellow MLP voice actors Andrew Francis (Dinotrux – “Desert”), Michael Daingerfield (Lego Star Wars: Droid Tales – “Flight of the Falcon”), and Vincent Tong (The Deep – “Digging Deeper”) were also nominated in the category.
The show has won two Leos in the past. The first was in 2013 for Best Score for “Magical Mystery Cure” and in 2014 for Best Overall Sound for “Power Ponies.” The show has been nominated for 13 Leos overall including this year’s nominations.
Littlest Pet Shop has been nominated three times, winning once for Best Score for “Lights, Camera, Mongoose!”
We’ve already announced our first four returning guests, so let’s announce someone new to Nightmare Nights – the incredibly talented Kelly Sheridan!
Kelly Sheridan is most well known in our community for her role as Starlight Glimmer, but she worked on My Little Pony for quite some time. Before Friendship is Magic, she voiced Cheerilee and Cotton Candy in the 2000s, and Melody in My Little Pony Tales from 1992. Outside of Pony, she is most well known for her role as the voice of Barbie for the last 15 years. She’s also had a long history providing dubbing for many incredibly popular anime, including InuYasha, Death Note, Ranma ½, Cardcaptors, and many more. She also tweets about her work at @KSheridanVoice.

There’s no rush to apply; vendors will be selected via a jury system, not by first-come-first-serve, to ensure that there is a healthy variety for our vendors and attendees.
