Review: My Little Pony Classic Movie Collection
As a girl born in the 80’s, my absolute favorite show growing up was My Little Pony. I knew all the words to the classic theme song and watched every special. I also loved playing in my pony tent with ShutterFly Ponies and taking them in my baths where I would create all kinds of imaginative stories. So beloved to me, I have my 100 plus pony collection packed away, so I can pass them down to my daughter when she is a little older.
For the first time, four classic movies will be released on DVD in My Little Pony: Classic Movie Collection. The 2-disc set contains the films Princess Promenade, Runaway Rainbow, Dancing In The Clouds, and Friends Are Never Far Away.
In the highly popular Princess Promenade, Wysteria is beaming with pride! Her gardens are in bloom, her little Breezie friends are in town, and it’s time for Ponyville’s fanciest spring parade, the ultimate celebration of flowers! But things don’t go according to plan when Wysteria accidentally awakens Spike the Dragon, a sleepy, silly, 1,000-year-old dragon! For you see, legend holds that when a dragon is awakened, a new princess is about to be crowned! But who is the Princess of Ponyville?
In Runaway Rainbow, Rainbow Dash loves the time of year when Ponyville and Breezie Blossom are all about celebrating rainbows. Meanwhile, in a new magical place called Unicornia, Rarity is being taught how to be a Unicorn Princess and the importance of making the first rainbow of the season. But Rarity embarks on an incredible ride that includes a magic wand, falling through the clouds right into the middle of Breezie Blossom, a visit to Ponyville, meeting Spike the Dragon, and a huge adventure as she tries to get back to Unicornia. She soon realizes that getting home in time to create the first rainbow of the season is not an easy thing to do – but it is fun!
In Dancing In The Clouds, the Friendship Ball is coming up, and Twinkle Twirl needs to come up with a special dance. A roller coaster ride with friends makes her feel like she’s “dancing in the clouds,” so Sky Wishes helps her make an extra special wish to come up with a dance to make everyone feel that way.
In Friends Are Never Far Away, good friends Sky Wishes and Starcatcher the Pegasus want all of their friends in Ponyville and Butterfly Island to meet. Pegasus ponies are very shy however, so the two plan a special party with music, games and a Pegasus-favorite, ice cream. The party planning doesn’t go so smoothly, but it’s quite an adventure!
The DVD collection hits stores January 21st!
