Thank you Shout Factory for sending us this movie to review!
My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks takes place after the Equestria Girls movie that was released in 2013. While I recommend seeing Equestria Girls first, it's not required since there are a couple of flashbacks to fill in the story gaps. Most of the seventy-minute movie takes place in the parallel human world where each pony personality resides in humanoid form.
Canterlot Highschool has gotten three new students that seem to be mesmerizing everyone they come in contact with. Instead of a peaceful musical showcase, these newcomers convince the school to host a Battle of the Bands. Will the newcomer's band, The Dazzlings take the crown, or will The Rainbooms (with the help of Princess Twilight) win the contest?
The music from both bands is catchy and fun to listen to. My kids liked the music, visuals and character personalities. Even my son enjoyed the movie. There are some good messages taught including the power of forgiveness and friendship. Any fan of My Little Pony or Equestria Girls should consider adding this movie to their library. The blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy sells for $17.99.
