To celebrate the release of eOne’s MY LITTLE PONY streaming on Netflix, the field marketing team executed a publicity and promotions campaign in 19 markets throughout the US and Canada. Campaign elements included inviting field press and orchestrating a global press junket, hosting four purple carpet premiere parties at Lolli & Pops stores in LA, Denver, Houston and Philly, and activating over 100 influencers via virtual premiere invites and promo item mailers. All of which helped the film debut at 100% on Rotten Tomatoes and become the #1 streaming movie in multiple countries.
