Did You Know?


Describing what the movie's scope was like, Tara Strong, voice actress for Twilight Sparkle, stated in an interview, "Working on the feature was similar to working on the show, just that the stakes are higher and the adventure is bigger. We leave Equestria and find out that there are other lands. There's something that forces Twilight to have to rely on her friends to help set things right. Any time you go from a series to a feature, you have to have a big story, and they certainly accomplished that." See more »

Crazy Credits

During the credits, the Friendship Festival continues in a "pointy-art" style. Also, there are small gags like Pinkie doing a kick line with the Queen of the Hippos, the remains of the Storm King somehow dancing, and Angel Bunny bopping with Fluttershy's bird choir. Blink and you'll miss an appearance by Discord in the crowd. See more »

My Little Pony & Equestria Transformed
15 October 2017 | by (Park City, Utah) – See all my reviews

This movie deserves all the praise it gets. I'm a 25 year old guy, who happens to also be a brony, and putting that aside, I actually enjoyed this movie going by myself for an early screening the night before official launch to theaters across the USA. Granted the next day is when I got together with 2-4 groups of friends and people and saw the movie about another 5 times on Friday's release. That's how great this movie is though. It is worth a weird odd number of times to see this movie over and over again. We've all been waiting for a full on pony movie for quite sometime, whether you are the older generation pony fan, or current generation 4 pony fan. This movie does not follow the television series at all. In fact, it is a whole different story, with an "extended episode" feeling to it. The artwork and graphics of the pony are top tier, the animation makes it almost feel like you are watching one of your favorite animated classics. Equestria and the movements of the ponies, as well as the physics of the magic and wing movements are perfect. It doesn't have quite the extended opening most were anticipating, however we get a spotlight on Canterlot and just the phenomenal job the design teams did with the animation in the beginning. It took my breath away, and it was already exciting. The story follows a pony, who believes in friends who didn't come for her, Commander Tempest (voiced by Emily Blunt). We find Equestria raging friendship wars again, and we get so many awesome scenes and the mane 6 (Twilight, Rainbow, Applejack, Rarity, Fluttershy, and Pinkie) fulfilling there hilarious antics, humour, and fight to keep friendship alive. The Storm King (voiced by Liev Schreiber (which came as a big surprise hearing him jump in based off his career of darker movies) is after the 4 princess of Equestria's magic, to be able to control and rule over with dark storm power in Equestria. We also meet a stray alley cat named Capper (voiced by Taye Diggs) who lures are ponies and acts to try and help them at first, then alerts for the Storm King to come snatch them. We meet Sky Pirates, a Gryphon who's lost her charm and bravery, along with her crew. The music is awesome, just as Rainbow Dash's song, "Time to be Awesome" is. Daniel Ingram, music composer for the My Little Pony TV series, Equestria Girls, and the movie, did an amazing job on all the music in the show and off the show. Particularly, Rainbow, sung by Songbird Serenade (Voice and music of Sia), hit me right in the heart.

In summary, it's quite obvious this movie is for children, and not every single person is going to "gallop" into theaters. However, if you have a kid or more, someone in your life, or even you yourself are an exceptional fan of our friendship horses, this movie is for sure worth going and purchasing a ticket for. You'll absolutely love it for sure.

My Hobbyist Critic Review (in theater):

Metascore: 87/100 Summary: The movie is exactly as it is intended to be for all audiences of all ages, with appropriate humour, and casual puns. It opens up almost immediately after the logo to the movie introduces you, right into the hooves of the ponies you are loving and watching. The music was spot on, and even has a full album available for purchase anywhere online music is sold. The voice actors and actresses followed and played there roles excellent. The art and design of the animation and physics is flawless, compared to a lot of other animated movies that are released to compete.

****My Little Pony: The Movie has currently made $15.5 million dollars in the United States and Canada since it's release, and $10.6 million dollars in other parts of the globe, for a current total of $26.1 million dollars as of October 15, 2017****
