As the Ponyville spring parade draws near, Wysteria's elaborate plans for the floral festivities are threatened by the awakening of a 1,000-year-old dragon and the coming crowning of a new princess. With her gardens in bloom and her friends all preparing for the upcoming spring parade, Wysteria is devastated when she inadvertently awakens Spike the dragon from his millennium-long slumber. Legend has it that when a dragon is awakened, a new princess is to be crowned -- but who could it be?

I was watching my two nieces at their house and they insisted on watching this movie, which they apparently owned. I figured, hey, it will save me some trouble. So I go to play the movie and am shocked to find this is not just another typical children's movie, but a modern work of art.
Right from the beginning, I found myself drawn in by the unique and refreshing character designs. Not only did the jovial mise-en-scene create a strong sense of attachment, but the story was unlike anything I had ever seen. The twists, the character interactions, it was all so heart-warming and perfect. The end of the film was an emotional climax, and one of the few times I have ever cried to a movie.
Some people do not believe any one film can ever be perfect, but My Little Pony: The Princess Promenade would certainly be as close as anything can get. It saddens me that so many people have judged this book by its cover (or should I say, film by its box art!) and simply dismissed this as being another trivial cash-in in the crowded children's film market. These people are missing out on one of the greatest stories I have ever had the chance to witness. The film's dynamic appeal to young and old audiences alike is unique and welcome. If you are looking for a piece of cinematography which is an absolute joy, The Princess Promenade is for you.
