What parents need to know

Parents need to know that My Little Pony: The Princess Promenade is a short film about pony Wysteria becoming a princess. Though she enjoys being a princess and must learn to make choices and delegate tasks, she struggles to be true to herself. In the end, she finds a resolution that honors both possibilities. Although there are positives messages about friendship and loyalty here, it's a pro-princess endeavor all around.

What's the story?

When Wysteria meets a newly awakened dragon, Spike in MY LITTLE PONY: THE PRINCESS PROMENADE, he makes her a princess, and she thinks her dreams have come true. But soon she learns being a princess is not as easy as she thought, and with it comes losing some of the things she loved about being a pony. With the help of the Breezies, and in preparation for the princess promenade, Wysteria must learn to reconcile being a princess with being herself.

Is it any good?

This won't satisfy parents of kids in a princess-free household, but for parents whose little ones can't be deterred from the dream of royalty, there is some great food for thought here. What does being a princess really mean? What are some of the important skills a princess should have, such as delegation and the ability to make hard choices? How can a princess use her powers for good and to help those she loves instead of only helping herself? There are some nice ideas in My Little Pony: The Princess Promenade about what it means to be beautiful inside and, ultimately, a pro-sharing and pro-caring message that can temper the frills.
