Are your horsey senses tingling? That’s probably because The Hub Network announced some big news Monday: My Little Pony Equestria Girls, a full-length feature film that enjoyed a theatrical run this summer, will premiere on network TV Sunday, Sept. 1, at noon ET.

The story follows newly crowned princess Twilight Sparkle as she journeys to a mysterious new land in search of a stolen crown. After passing through a looking glass, the alicorn pony discovers that she’s been transformed into a human high school student — and that five of her classmates look and sound just like her pony pals back in Equestria.

The movie’s premiere will be preceded by a two-hour My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic marathon, during which viewers will learn which of the show’s “mane six” characters has been deemed fan favorite. Fans will have an opportunity to vote for their pick immediately following Comic-Con, on Monday, July 22, at a specially designated website.
