As the evil Storm King takes over the land of Equestria, the indefatigable Mane 6, comprising Princess Twilight Sparkle and her friends — Applejack, Rarity, Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie and Spike — decide to save the kingdom by heading out on a journey fraught with danger.
When you have a cast that comprises names such as Emily Blunt, Sia, Liev Schreiber and Zoe Saldana among others, you know you're in for a treat. The story begins with Princess Twilight Sparkle (the Princess of Friendship) busy organising the Friendship Festival in Equestria with little help from her fellow princesses — Princess Celestia, Princess Candance and Princess Luna. Just as the fest is about to begin, enemy airships led by the rebel unicorn, Tempest, who works for the Storm King, descend and order the princesses and ponies to surrender.
Princess Twilight Sparkle manages to escape and is urged by Princess Celestia to 'go South and find the Queen of the Hyppo...' in order to save the kingdom. And thus, the adventurous journey begins as Princess Twilight Sparkle and her friends — Applejack, Rarity, Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie and Spike — embark through unknown lands, fight enemies, make new friends and strengthen old bonds before returning to Equestria to fight the Storm King and Tempest.
Do they succeed in overthrowing the evil king? Does Tempest mend her ways? Will Princess Twilight Sparkle be able to have her Friendship Festival? My Little Pony takes you on a fun ride that promises much laughter, lots of cheer, and most importantly, teaches you that few bonds are as precious as friendship. The animation is topnotch — there are several scenes that will delight little ones — the primary target audience of this fiesta. Certain characters like Princess Twilight Sparkle (Tara Strong), Tempest (Emily Blunt), and of course, the menacing Storm King (Liev Schreiber) stand apart and engage the viewer with their exceptional performances — Blunt shines as the wronged Tempest, hellbent on taking revenge on Equestria while Schreiber reveals just why he is among Hollywood's best. This one's primarily aimed at kids though, so adults can skip it unless, of course, you're accompanying your little ones. Giddy up!
