Did You Know?


While the initial returns were considered poor from some sites, Cartoon Brew's Amidi stated that since Lionsgate is not directly in the business of releasing family-friendly films, the opening take readily exceeded the distributor's other attempts at this genre; likewise, Amidi estimated that the film had a budget between $5 to $8 million, based on budgets for films with similar styles as well as accounting for the work being done primarily in-house at Hasbro to reduce costs.

When the Mane Six fall from the broken bridge into the water below, Pinkie and Twilight fall down backwards in a horizontal position, Rarity on her sides in a horizontal position, Rainbow is spinning in a horizontal position, Fluttershy is slightly spinning in a horizontal position, and Applejack forward in a horizontal position, but in the next scene, Pinkie and Twilight are now upside down in a vertical position, Rarity is right side up in a horizontal position, Applejack and Rainbow Dash are upside down in a horizontal position, and Fluttershy's horizontal position is reversed 180°, and considering Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash were the only ones moving, there is no way the other ponies would have moved that quickly, Pinkie would have had to rotate 90° and Twilight 180°.

A worthwhile animated movie
4 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

My Little Pony's current iteration has been a strange if not fascinating family friendly product, and their movie continues this trend. Make no mistake, this movie is definitely written mainly with children in mind but with enough thoughtfulness that adults should be able to adequately enjoy it to at least a modest degree.

The songs are catchy and worth remembering, and the characters are distinct enough to be memorable. Although the main seven characters are not equally distributed in terms of screen time, they still get enough screen time to remember who they are for even a new watcher.

The movie is mainly straight forward with very few twists, but it makes up for it with strong writing. The pacing can be a bit too fast at a couple of points, but only just so.

Unlike most current Disney movies, however, the villains are quite straightforward in who they are. If you are a fan of twist villains, you'll be disappointed, but if you enjoy a good villain, you'll enjoy two out of the three villains shown. The weakest member - Grubber - at the very least only suffers from not being funny enough as the comedic sidekick to the serious Tempest.

As for the comedy, the movie goes for a more hi jinks, silly comedy with a few deadpan jokes here and there. Don't expect to a lot of sarcastic remarks or much in the way of deprecation towards their series or its ideals.

Finally, the soundtrack is quite good. There are six sung songs in the movie and they all keep a different beat and genre. Their distinct style keep them memorable, and not only help progress the plot but explain certain characters in an easily digestible fashion.

Overall, it's more of a classical styled Disney movie, and wholly enjoyable to anyone looking for a solidly written film.
