Countless millennials grew up loving My Little Pony — the TV series, the cute merchandise, the movie... All of that 80s goodness has come and gone, of course, but the beloved characters are returning again for a whole new generation of viewers to enjoy.

The show — which is being produced by by Hasbro and Mills Entertainment, according to Billboard — will follow the "Mane Six" as they and the rest of Equestria get ready for the blossoming of Ponyville's Rainbow Tree. The tree is meant to bring about "another hundred years of friendship," but there's one problem — the tree is in bad shape. In the live show, according to the press release, the "Mane Six" will set out to find a cure for the ailing Rainbow Tree. They'll have to rely on "strength, determination, creativity and — of course — the magic of friendship!" if they hope to achieve their goal, however.
If reading all those dates and getting the scoop on what the show's about got you eager and excited to pack up the kids and head out to a My Little Pony Live show, you're certainly not alone. Tickets aren't on sale just yet, but will be soon. According to the show's website, tickets and VIP packages go on sale to the public Friday, Aug. 9, so mark your calendars now.
My Little Pony Live is intended to be a family show, offering something for all ages, so parents will enjoy it as much as their kids. It may not be the My Little Pony you grew up with decades ago, but it sounds like it'll be just as fun and perhaps even more adorable.
