Rumored Titles Coming in May 2022
We wanted to mention that reports from the Italian website MLD Entertainment suggesting a 44-minute My Little Pony “mini-movie” is scheduled to hit Netflix at some point in May 2022. Sadly, after digging, we couldn’t find any further evidence of this so grain of salt for the time being.
That’s all we have for now. Keep this post bookmarked where we’ll be updating over time to reflect new May 2022 Netflix releases.
