My Little Pony: Film Review – Adventure, Colours, And Lots of Ponies

After success with the television series, My Little Pony has finally come to theatres for the first time with a film. My Little Pony is all about friendship. This animated family film brings funny Pony characters combined with a cast of great actors voicing the roles. 

My Little Pony begins with the ponies of Equestria preparing for their first Friendship Festival, and the ponies from many regions coming to this festival. Twilight Sparkle (Tara Strong) as Friendship Princess organized the event. As usual, she was not alone, she gets help from her friends, Rainbow Dash, Apple Jack (Ashleigh Bell), Pinkie Pie, Fluttershy (Andrea Libman) and Rarity (Tabitha St. Germain). 

But suddenly, a cloud storm comes up, caused by Storm King (Liev Schreiber) along with Tempest Shadow (Emily Blunt), the unicorn without any horns. Their mission is to capture the Pony princesses and conquer the world.

The six ponies make a plan to ask MacGuffin for help and then they meet Capper the cat (Taye Diggs) and Captain Celaeno, the pirate parrot (Zoe Saldana).

My Little Pony review - BookMyShow

This 2D animated movie does not improve upon the version present in the television series. The characters seem to be a little less developed and the script and the plot also are a bit generic. But despite the flaws here and there in My Little Pony: The Movie, it will be a fun watch, especially for the kids who like the show.

But we should give thumbs up to the voice actors that are able to add some depth each character very well. Particularly, Emily Blunt, who as Tempest Shadow’s voice sounds very mature – evil yet still elegant.

The music icon, Sia, as the voice for Songbird Serenade, a guest star at the festival of friendship is also one of the biggest attractions in this film. With her unique voice, Sia sings a song called Rainbow to describe the adventures of the ponies.

Despite all of that experience of watching My Little Pony, this film is enough to be enjoyed by children and adults. This film features good music and colorful visuals that are guaranteed to make you fall in love with this movie.
