I was just wondering yesterday how long it will be before Emily Blunt finally wins an Oscar. And then today, wouldn’t you know it, a trailer for My Little Pony: The Movie, starring one Ms. Emily Blunt, falls into my lap.
Could MLP be the one to nab Blunt that little gold man? It would be quite unusual to garner an acting win for an animated movie, but if there are enough bronies int he Academy, anything is possible.
In the movie, Blunt plays not-so-nice unicorn Tempest Shadow, who appears to be intent on mucking things up in Equestria. In the trailer, we can hear her deliciously deadpan lines like, “Here’s the deal, ladies. I need your magic.”
My Little Pony: The Movie looks to feature “Mane 6” ponies from the Friendship is Magic TV series, as well as some new hoofers voiced by the likes of Michael Peña, Sia, Liev Schreiber, Taye Diggs, Zoë Saldana, Kristin Chenoweth, and Uzo Aduba. It’s coming out October 6.
