About My Little Pony: A New Generation:
The unimaginable has happened…Equestria has lost its magic! Earth Ponies, Unicorns, and Pegasi are no longer friends and now live separated by species. But idealistic Earth Pony Sunny (Vanessa Hudgens) is determined to find a way to bring enchantment and unity back to their world. Teaming up with open-hearted Unicorn Izzy (Kimiko Glenn), the pair travel to faraway lands where they encounter the likes of charismatic and brave Pegasi Pipp (Sofia Carson) and Zipp (Liza Koshy) and the ever-responsible fellow Earth Pony Hitch (James Marsden).
Their mission is full of misadventures, but these new best friends each possess their own unique and special gifts that may be just what this ponyverse needs to restore magic and prove that even little ponies can make a big difference.
Additional voice cast members include Ken Jeong (SPROUT), Elizabeth Perkins (PHYLLIS), Jane Krakowski (QUEEN HAVEN), Phil LaMarr (ALPHABITTLE), and Michael McKean (ARGYLE).
The gist of the movie is this, Earth Ponies, Unicorns, and Pegasi all have preconceived notions of what they think the other culture/lands are like, and none of it good. When they all finally meet and after some trepidation, they learn that although they look different, and have different ways of living, but that inside they are all the same.
The movie is adorable and really funny and not in that cheesy kind of funny that a lot of kids’ movies peddle. I genuinely laughed throughout and I think both young and older viewers will as well.
The animation is on another level, it’s so amazing and brings the ponies to life! Seriously, I want a pony that looks just like the animation. It really makes me feel very nostalgic for the ponies from the ’80s.
Then there’s the music, with Vanessa Hudgens and Sofia Carson leading with their amazing voices, it was bound to have catchy songs, and it does but let’s not count out Kimiko Glenn, her voice is equally as stunning. Your kids will be dancing and singing all over the house and will probably make you watch it again and again!
Overall this is a great movie with a great message for Pony fans young and old.
