My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is the top playing kids show in my house. You could say that my son and I are obsessed with it. With the Equestria Girls line of movies, we have been able to journey into a new world with the same characters we love. Rainbow Rocks is the second movie in the Equestria Girls line of My Little Pony movies, and it doesn’t disappoint.
A trio of girls known as The Dazzlings shows up at Canterlot High with a mysterious ability to bring the negativity out in everyone, Sunset Shimmer calls on Twilight Sparkle to return to the human world to help save the day.
Their mission to defeat the evil Dazzlings is not as easy as they first anticipate and eventually they must remember what true friendship is or face losing the battle.
Just like in Equestria Girls, this movie is full of rocking tunes that had me and my son dancing in our seats. Thankfully, whoever is in charge of the soundtrack realized they could make some money off of the music and released it on iTunes the day before the movie was set to release in theaters. It took them two years to release the soundtrack for Equestria Girls.
This movie has opened up a few new doors for the MLP universe, including the return of sea ponies, and more adventures at Canterlot High since Twilight now has a magical door she can pass through anytime. I think Flash Sentry’s continued crush on Twilight also has possibilities.
The plus side to Flash is that he is has a crush on Twilight and we don’t see Twilight going all boy-chasing-crazy. Nice turn of events for a female character.
I know a lot of fans don’t want to see Twilight with a boyfriend, but to me, her relationship with Flash would open new doors for the show. It could even serve as a lesson to young girls on what a relationship should be like and teach them that going slow and having fun is what matters over serious steps that should wait until they’re older.
Overall, Rainbow Rocks delivers a rocking soundtrack and story that showcases all the characters in a way that makes them shine. If you are a My Little Pony fan, then make sure you get your hooves on the My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks Blu-ray and DVD out now.
