What parents need to know
Parents need to know that My Little Pony: Friends Are Never Far Away is from the third generation of My Little Pony shows and looks a bit different from newer versions of the series. This short and sweet movie is geared toward young preschoolers. There is one scene of peril wherein a few ponies almost crash in a hot air balloon, but they're quickly saved by the Pegasus ponies. The My Little Pony series has multiple generations of shows with related marketing tie-ins and merchandise, which may be of concern to some parents.

But will the two friends be able to get everyone together and show them the value of making new friends?
