A fun adventure for all MLP:FIM fans!

For fans for My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic of all ages, this movie is amazing! It’s made for kids, especially young girls, so there is nothing inappropriate, but the plot is engaging enough for adult fans of MLP to enjoy as well.

Wonderful movie about seeing through differences

This movie shows acceptance of others. As the movie starts the ponies fear each other for differences. Through open conversation the ponies learn they're surprisingly alike.
