Fans of "My Little Pony" will soon be able to Netflix and chill with their favorite animated equines.

The upcoming “My Little Pony” movie will now premiere on the streaming giant instead of having a theatrical release, reported Variety.

Paramount Pictures originally scheduled to launch the animated movie in theaters on September 24th, 2021.

While an exact date has yet to be announced, the family film is expected to start streaming on Netflix later this year.

Directed by Rob Cullen and Jose Ucha, the new movie will continue to expand on the pony world of Equestria and introduce the characters to a new generation of fans.

Initially launched as a toy line in 1982, My Little Pony has been revamped through the years into a media franchise.

In 1986, the self-titled animated series debuted in syndication. The Disney Channel premiered a spin-off entitled “My Little Pony Tales” in 1992.

In 2010, “My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic” premiered on Discovery Family (initially called The Hub) and continued to air over the course of 9 seasons until 2019.

The franchise became a cultural phenomenon and developed a rabid adult fandom known as Bronies, a blending of the words "bro" and "pony."

On the big screen, “My Little Pony: The Movie” was released in 2017 and featured the voice work of Emily Blunt, Zoe Saldana, Taye Diggs, Uzo Aduba and Kristen Chenoweth. The film went on to earn over $60 million at the box office.

It’s a "My Little Pony" world and we’re just living in it!
