This is the only one of the 4 theatrically released traditionally animated films of the 2010s to not have any humans, of which were featured in Winnie the Pooh (2011), The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water (2015) (in live action form though) and Teen Titans GO! To the Movies (2018). See more »


Even though Twilight Sparkle has a magic unicorn horn that she can use to cast spells and it is shown she can do so in the show, in this film, with the exception of her lighting up a cave, catching a petrified Luna in mid-air and lowering her safety to the ground, and assembling a hot air balloon in mid-air, she never casts any spells nor uses teleportation at all.

User Reviews

Pure awesome for fans of the show..others? Well we'll see about that
9 October 2017 | by ninjamidget25See all my reviews

It was pretty much what I expected; a longer version of one of the TV episodes, which is fine with me since that's really all it's meant to be. The songs were all very good, but the one done by Tempest really stood out to me. The new animation used in the film was absolutely beautiful. A true step up from the flash animation. All of the characters had their moments, from Pinkie Pie's party canon to Fluttershy telling one of the big baddies "You seem tense. Do you want to talk about it?" Rarity is absolutely adorable with her meltdown proclaiming "The bad guys have won!" Rainbow Dash's sonic rainboom looks awesome with the new animation. The storm king seemed more like an afterthought than a real villain with Tempest playing the biggest role on the bad guys side. Extremely well done animation and voice acting. Fans of the show will love it, but it will not get many new fans. I would say a rock solid movie effort well worth another one in the future.
