However, Sunset Shimmer a renegade former student of Princess Celestia, steals her magic crown and escapes to another world. Twilight is charged with recovering the crown and she and her companion, Spike, pursue the thief.

Goofs

Vice Principal Luna is confronting Twilight Sparkle about the trashed gymnasium. She goes to a shaded window and uses her finger to bend down one of the slats of the shade making the beam of light hitting her face wider. When she lets go, the slat springs back to its original position yet the beam of light remains as wide as it was when more light was being let through. See more »

Quotes

Sunset Shimmer: Fizzy apple cider? Ugh! This is my coronation, not a hoedown.
Applejack: Well, now, it ain't necessarily gonna be your coronation this time around.
Sunset Shimmer: Oh, is that so? You country folk really aren't that bright. Must be why the other students say such awful things about you.
Applejack: Grrr...
Sunset Shimmer: Obviously it's gonna be my coronation. I'm running unopposed.
Pinkie Pie: Not this time. The new girl just signed up!
Sunset Shimmer: What?
Pinkie Pie: I know. Her handwriting is really bad.
Sunset Shimmer: [to herself] Where is this Twilight Sparkle?

Surprisingly okay.
30 June 2013 | by SmallDog95See all my reviews

There's a lot of things you can say about this movie. Yes, it's corny. Yes, it panders to the fan-base. Yes, the concept is silly. Yes, it's basically an hour-long commercial for a new toy line. But that doesn't change the fact that My Little Pony: Equestria Girls is, honestly, pretty alright. No, it's not perfect, not by a long shot, but then, neither is the show (blasphemy, I know but it's true).

If you're a fan of the show and you take this movie for what it is: the pilot episode for what will hopefully be a decent cartoon and an advertisement for toys, then you'll probably enjoy it. Your kids, if you have any, will most likely enjoy it. If you're not a fan of the show, a kid, or both, then steer clear.
