The time is neigh for more My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. Season 3 of MLP debuts this Saturday on The Hub — and from what we’ve heard, the premiere is going to be a doozy.

“The Crystal Empire” is an epic two-parter that tasks Twilight Sparkle and her pony pals with restoring the titular kingdom, a powerful realm that mysteriously disappeared from Equestria 1,000 years ago. On the way, Twilight enjoys a reunion with her former babysitter and new sister-in-law Princess Cadance — although the gravity of the situation sort of ruins the mood. As Cadance tells her young friend, “One of these days we need to get together when the fate of Equestria isn’t hanging in the balance.” Check out their meeting — and learn a bit more about what’s threatening Equestria this time — in this exclusive clip:

My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic returns to TV this Saturday. Catch the mane event on The Hub at 10 a.m. ET.
