Hasbro Reveals New Ponies from Season 8 Finale of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic...Written by James Zahn
At the inaugural HasCon back in 2017, Hasbro hosted a special My Little Pony VIP fan dinner which included raffle prizes for attendees. The grand prize raffle winners were given a once in a lifetime opportunity – their very own My Little Pony characters that would actually appear in an episode of Friendship is Magic! At the dinner, two winners were chosen - Natalya and Thomas - and this weekend, their Ponies will appear in the Season 8 finale, School Raze. Earlier today, Hasbro sent over a new batch of photos showing off these new Ponies, and you can catch them in action when the new episode premieres on October 13, 2018 on Discovery Family.
