Coming to DVD this week from Hasbro Studios and Shout! Kids Factory is the iconic characters in a new full-length feature with “My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Friendship Games.”

When the crown is stolen from their precious Crystal Empire, Twilight Sparkles knows she must find the one responsible – Sunset Shimmer. The problem is that the crown is now in another world where Twilight is turned into a real teenage girl. Even more strange is that she is a student at Canterlot High.

Now, The Friendship Games have come to Canterlot High and the Crystal Prep Academy comes to compete in archery, motocross and roller-skating. Shimmer wants to keep magic out of the games as the girls come together to go on the high school journey together!

I absolutely love the new storyline that these memorable characters have taken. The animation is absolutely vibrant, stunning and what you would expect from all things My Little Pony.

The characters are still themselves, personality wise, and although now girls it is still easy to see the ‘pony within’. I believe that is what I like the best! Of course all animated characters grow, yet Hasbro has done a brilliant job of mesh the two worlds together keeping both sides happy.

Hasbro Studios is an iconic brand with some of the best in animation and family programming with MY LITTLE PONY, and LITTLEST PET SHOP. Since its formation in 2009, Hasbro Studios has received seven Daytime Emmy’s!

SHOUT! Factory brings the best to fans offering up feature films, classic television series, animation and specials. For more of what they have to offer go to www.shoutfactory.com.

TUBS OF POPCORN: I give “My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Friendship Games” four tubs of popcorn out of five. Just when I thought my granddaughter couldn’t be any happier with her Pony Pals – she turned into a chubby ball of giggles watching this full length film.

It didn’t take us long to learn the songs which is another fun aspect of the My Little Pony franchise, fun in everything they do. The DVD also includes an exclusive musical performance, a new audio commentary, sing-alongs and animated shorts.

“My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Friendship Games” is a delightful addition to the family library and expands the saga of the best pony girls in the world.

In the end – no matter what universe friendships are forever!
