The constant theme with My Little Pony is that friendship is magic. With Liza Koshy and Kimiko Glenn, they are best friends in real life and both got to voice their own ponies in the new animated film My Little Pony: A New Generation for Netflix.

The new animated film takes the My Little Pony storylines into a new chapter with new characters and computer animation rather than the traditional cartoon format.

Here’s the official synopsis of My Little Pony: A New Generation:

The unimaginable has happened…..Equestria has lost its magic! Earth ponies, Unicorns, and Pegasi are no longer friends and now live separated by species. But idealistic Earth Pony Sunny is determined to find a way to bring enchantment and unity back to their world. Teaming up with open-hearted Unicorn Izzy, the pair travel to faraway lands where they encounter the likes of charismatic and brave Pegasi Pipp and Zipp and the ever-responsible fellow Earth Pony Hitch. Their mission is full of misadventures, but these new best friends each possess their own unique and special gifts that may be just what the ponyverse needs to restore magic and prove that even little ponies can make a big difference.
