'My Little Pony': Twilight teaches the Cutie Mark Crusaders a lesson -- EXCLUSIVE

Does that headline sound weirdly menacing? It shouldn’t; in the next episode of My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic, Twilight Sparkle literally offers to help the Cutie Mark Crusaders with their scholastic pursuits. Of course, things get a little complicated when Apple Bloom, Scootaloo and Sweetie Belle realize that their tutor is one of the coolest ponies on the block — and they decide to use her popularity to their own advantage.

Before that point, though, it’s all fun and games — like in this exclusive clip, in which Twilight passes on some of her wisdom.

'My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic': See Fluttershy sing her heart out -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

As her name implies, Fluttershy isn’t the most outgoing pony in Equestria. But that doesn’t mean she can’t cut loose every now and then — provided nobody’s watching.

In this clip from the next episode of My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic, Fluttershy unleashes her gorgeous voice for a group of her admiring animal pals. She’d never perform in front of a group of other ponies, though — unless she could do it in disguise. Which is where a pony singer who’s lost his voice, an important charity concert, and Zecora’s mysterious remedies come in.

Get a glimpse at the episode below. READ FULL STORY

'Baby-sitters Club' author Ann M. Martin talks tackling autism in new novel, 'Rain Reign': EXCLUSIVE

rain-reign.jpg

There’s much more to Ann M. Martin than the bestselling Baby-sitters Club books. An extraordinarily prolific author, she’s penned over a dozen novels for young readers over the past 10 years — though perhaps none as topical as her latest, Rain Reign. The story follows 11-year-old Rose Howard, a bright fifth grader who’s obsessed with homonyms, rule-following, and her dog Rain — her only true friend, since Rose’s high-functioning autism makes it difficult for her to relate to other people. When a devastating superstorm hits Rose’s hometown and Rain goes missing, she goes on a quest to find her companion — and ends up uncovering secrets that will change her world forever.

Get a first glimpse at the novel’s cover above, and read on to see what Martin has to say about her inspiration for the book, its connection to her own dearly departed dog — and where she thinks one unforgettable Baby-sitters Club character may have ended up.

'My Little Pony Equestria Girls': Yes, there will be a sequel. And we've got a clip! EXCLUSIVE

Thought the adventures of My Little Pony‘s Equestria Girls — pony-human hybrids who share the names and personalities of My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic‘s Mane 6 — ended when Twilight Sparkle escaped back through the portal to Canterlot High?

Think again. (Also, the previous sentence makes sense — I promise.)

Hasbro Studios reveals exclusively to EW that it will release a second Equestria Girls movie later this year. The film’s plot is under wraps for now — but given this teaser and the film’s title, My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks, it’s safe to assume that music will play a larger role than ever. Get ready to shake your tail and watch the clip below:

'Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return': First look at new adventure, starring Lea Michele -- EXCLUSIVE

DOROTHY-OZ-01

Sure, there’s no place like home — but who would turn down a chance to go back to the merry old land of Oz?

Enter Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return, a 3-D animated musical based on Roger Stanton Baum’s 1989 novel Dorothy of Oz. (And yes, Roger is one of those Baums; original Oz author L. Frank was his great-grandfather.) The story follows the heroic Dorothy Gale (Lea Michele) back to the beloved fantasy land, where she and her pals — the Scarecrow (Dan Aykroyd), the Cowardly Lion (Jim Belushi), the Tin Man (Kelsey Grammer), and Glinda (Bernadette Peters) must face a wicked new villain: the Jester (Martin Short.)

The film won’t hit theaters for another few months — but you can get a first glimpse at it in the four addition exclusive images below. (Unfortunately, you’ll just have to imagine any Lea/Bernadette duets for now.)

First clip from 'The Pirate Fairy': Christina Hendricks is mixing something magical -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

What if Joan Holloway Harris morphed into a spunky brunette fairy? Well, she’d sound something like Never Land resident Zarina — a winged dust-keeper voiced by Mad Men star Christina Hendricks.

Zarina is the star of Disney’s upcoming straight-to-Blu-ray film The Pirate Fairy, which follows the titular sprite’s adventures after she decides to ditch Pixie Hollow for a pirate ship — and gets to know a two-handed cabin boy named James who will one day be known as Captain Hook. Also: He’s voiced by Tom Hiddleston. It’s like the Internet wrote this movie.

Catch your first glimpse at Zarina in action by watching this exclusive clip, in which Z shows Tinker Bell (Arrested Development‘s Mae Whitman) her mad dust-mixing skills. Bet she’d also make a killer fairy martini if pressed.
