Lauren Faust is an American animator, screenwriter, director, and producer who is the new producer and writer of the DC Super Hero Girls franchise for the 2019 TV series. She is best known for developing Hasbro's animated television series My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, as well as working frequently with her husband Craig McCracken. She has also worked as an animator on cartoon series such as The Powerpuff Girls (1998 series) and Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends.

- She was nominated in Annie Awards for Outstanding Achievement for Character Design in an Animated Television/Broadcast Production for the episode "Sweet Justice."
- She collaborated with Shea Fontana to add a bonus chapter for the final graphic novel, Spaced Out, which had to be in paperback form.
- She only became an executive producer for Season 1 because her husband, Craig McCracken, convinced her to work with him with his Netflix show, Kid Cosmic. This makes Amanda Rynda to be the new showrunner for Season 2.
