Did You Know?


Adam Bengis had been fighting leukemia for over 3 years when, through the Make-A-Wish Foundation, got to fulfill his dream for voice acting in the film. He plays an extra pony named Code Red and is listed 3rd in the closing credits due to the credits being alphabetized by last name. His lines include: "Is that Songbird Serenade? It is! It is!" and "Way to go guys!" 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.

Amazing animation with a side of originality on a established cartoon!
8 October 2017 | by roccosketchSee all my reviews

I have been a fan of the series for quite sometime now and a active community member since 2012. I have seen every episode with my kids and consider myself a snob to animations regarding this series. All I can say is... WOW. I knew that the crew had made the shift to ToonBOOM for the movie but I never expected it to be this... AWESOME! The animation was flawless, the presentation on point and the writing superb!

This is not the series we know as fans, this is Disney levels of quality in style and writing. The characters are very well fleshed out as well, and that villain... Finally we get a bad girl that is portrayed as more than a character with a grudge. I. Freaking. Love. HER!

Add to that I am a Tennesseeian and that The Nashville Scoring Orchestra did much of the scoring for this movie and you have a mix for a bit of bias. That being said, This series has always had amazing songs in it thanks in part by Daniel Ingram and this DID NOT DISAPPOINT! But bias aside, this is a movie that even parents can enjoy. It is cute, funny and well written. Sadly due to the adult community of fans, some of the 'trolls' that take joy in pick on them have decided to flood the internet with false reviews.

Seriously, go watch it! If you want something besides the typical Disney product with the same story line you have seen a million times, this movie is for you! This has to be one of the few cartoons out there with core values that is still GOOD! I rank this up there with The Secret of NIMH, My all time favorite movie as a child. You go DHX and Hasbro! Stellar job!
