Sia Cast in My Little Pony Movie

Sia has been added to the star-studded cast of My Little Pony: The Movie, set for release in October 2017. The extremely talented Australian artist joins Liev Scheriber, Emily Blint, Taye Diggs, Uzo Aduba and many more big names in the animated film.

The This Is Acting artist will play the pony Songbird Serenade, a pop star in the film. The pony bears an identifiable likeness by way of her face being hidden by a mop of blonde and black hair, a look now famously synonymous with the Adelaide-born artist.

The full cast for the upcoming film was announced at Comic-Con in San Diego last week. It was also announced that Sia will be contributing two new original songs to the official soundtrack.

According to Variety, the plot centres on the “‘Mane 6′ characters — Twilight Sparkle, Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, Fluttershy and Rarity — embarking on a journey to meet new friends and challenges on a quest to use the magic of friendship and save their home.”

The first My Little Pony movie based on the beloved Hasbro toy characters came out back in 1986. It features vocal performances from Danny DeVito, Madeline Kahn, Rhea Pearlman and others.

Sia is currently on a massive world tour in support of her recent album This Is Acting. As yet, no Australian dates have been announced.

My Little Pony: The Movie will be released on October 6, 2017.
