As a child of the 80's, I was totally enamored with My Little Pony cartoons and collected as many ponies as I could.  I probably spent hundreds of hours brushing pony hair and making up stories in my head.

When they brought back MLP for a new generation, I was disappointed that they changed the way they looked.  But it kind of grew on me after a while as I watched with my own little girl, who seen became as obsessed with them as I was as a child.  

There's just something magical about My Little Pony.

My Little Pony: The Movie was everything we thought it would be.  The story line resembles something out of a Disney princess movie; a princess goes off in search of someone to help save her kingdom, finds friends along the way, encounters the "evil" character in an epic good vs. evil battle, and there's a whole lot of singing awesomeness throughout.

If you're a fan of the series, you will love the movie!  The "bad guy" King Storm is bad, but you also can't help but laugh at his corny humor.  You'll meet some new characters, including Sia as pony Songbird Serenade, whose song "Rainbow" is perfectly suited to the movie. Emily Blunt is wonderful as Tempest Shadow, and wow, can that girl sing!    

You can download “Rainbow” featured on the ‘My Little Pony: The Movie’ Official Soundtrack on iTunes and Amazon.

And seriously, ponies that resemble mermaids?   AB said they were so "cutey cute cute!"

There are great themes about team work, friendship, forgiveness, trust, kindness, accepting differences, and learning from your mistakes.

My three-year-old and six-year-old girls were engaged in the movie the entire time.  There aren't any super scary parts, so you can watch with kids of different ages.

We absolutely loved everything about it!  You can't help but walk away from the theater smiling (and probably hearing your kids beg to see it again, buy the soundtrack and play it over and over, or buy a My Little Pony toy.  You win Hasbro.  You win!)

Did you know there is My Little Pony facebook camera mask so you can make yourself pony-tastic too as Twilight Sparkle and Tempest Shadow?  It'll keep your kids (and you) entertained for a while!
