My Little Pony: Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks DVD Review

2014 saw many new additions to the MLP family, including the new Equestria Girls tale Rainbow Rocks


About My Little Pony: Equestria Girls 
  In My Little Pony Equestria Girls, released in fall 2013, Twilight Sparkle’s crown was stolen from the Crystal Empire, and she pursued the thief, Sunset Shimmer, into an alternate world where she finds herself turned into…a teenage girl! To regain her crown and return to Equestria, Twilight had to learn how to fit into this strange, new world and defeat Sunset Shimmer in a competition to become crowned Princess of the Fall Formal at Canterlot High.

  Now, the girls of Canterlot High are back, and this time they’re rocking guitars! In My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks, Canterlot High (CHS) is hosting a musical showcase, and Rainbow Dash, Applejack, Pinkie Pie, Rarity, and Fluttershy are going to be performing with their new band, The Rainbooms. But when The Dazzlings, a new girl group, arrive at CHS and convince everyone to turn the friendly showcase into a Battle of the Bands, tensions mount between the competing musical acts. A now-reformed Sunset Shimmer realizes that The Dazzlings may not be ordinary girls and are after something far more sinister than just being named Best Band at Canterlot High. The Rainbooms call on Princess Twilight to restore harmony to their world to help them perform a musical counter-spell so that they can win a battle that now determines the fate of the entire school.




  While I didn't enjoy this film as much as it's predecessor, I can honestly say that my almost-4-year-old boy did! Out of a stack of DVD's this one was chosen again and again (and again, and again...) In my opinion the Equestria Girls just aren't the same without Twilight Sparkle, and the first quarter of the movie or so shows only the other pony girls. Jace, however, was captivated by the songs in this release. He could immediately tell me that the Dazzlings were the "bad guys" and that Sunset Shimmer was the bad guy, but is now a good guy. Overall Rainbow Rocks contained a bunch of catchy tunes and a few feel-good messages, and definitely comes kid-approved!
