In the back-to-back season premiere titled "The Beginning of the End," Princess Celestia and Princess Luna decide to retire and hand off the ruling of Equestria to Twilight Sparkle and her friends, which sends Twilight into a tailspin of self-doubt. Meanwhile, an ancient villain bands together a legion of nefarious characters to conquer all of Equestria, challenging Twilight Sparkle and the rest of the Mane 6 to step in and save the day.

Over the years, fans have followed the Mane 6 through countless songs and adventures and have met many friends along the way. Leading up to the season nine premiere, Discovery Family celebrates all things MY LITTLE PONY with a week-long PONY PALOOZA takeover celebration starting bright and early at 6a/5c on Saturday, March 30 with a marathon of EQUESTRIA GIRLS specials leading up to the world premiere of EQUESTRIA GIRLS: SPRING BREAKDOWN at 11:30a/10:30c. Then, catch a marathon of the most magical episodes from the past eight seasons of MY LITTLE PONY: FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC beginning at 6a/5c on Sunday, March 31 and running all week long during daytime. Revisit legendary moments throughout the span of the series including the discovery of the elements of harmony, the marriage of Shining Armor and Princess Cadance, the defeat of Lord Tirek, the introduction of the Cutie Mark Crusaders, Flurry Heart and Thorax, and the opening of Twilight Sparkle's School of Magic amongst other major milestones all culminating with the two-part back-to-back season premiere episodes of MY LITTLE PONY: FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC: SEASON 9.

Later this season, fan favorites "Quibble Pants" (voiced by Patton Oswalt) and "Cheese Sandwich" (voiced by "Weird Al" Yankovic) return to Equestria. Additionally, with brand new original songs, exciting new characters and even bigger adventures, MY LITTLE PONY: FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC will celebrate its epic 200th episode on Saturday, April 20 at 11:30a/10:30c with Twilight Sparkle and her big brother, Shining Armor, pitting their wits against each other to settle a long-standing sibling rivalry score.

Launched in 2010, MY LITTLE PONY: FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC follows the magical Princess Twilight Sparkle and her trusted dragon assistant Spike, who live in Ponyville in the enchanted land of Equestria, along with her colorful pony friends - honest Applejack, generous Rarity, kind Fluttershy, loyal Rainbow Dash and fun-loving Pinkie Pie. Together, they teach one another valuable lessons about the most powerful magic of all - the magic of friendship.
