So what do you think pony pals? Will this season live up to the hype, or will it fall flat on its face?! What are your thoughts on Starlight Glimmer? And how about that old baddie?!
Personally, I'm thinking it'll live up to the hype. Some new villains, some reoccurring villains, and some villains who have possibly been reformed? And what is Twilight gonna do with her new digs in Ponyville? And why was Pinkie Pie sporting one of those giant equal sign cutie marks?! We'll just have to wait and see on April 4th on the Discovery Family Channel.
