Crazy Credits

During the credits, the Friendship Festival continues in a "pointy-art" style. Also, there are small gags like Pinkie doing a kick line with the Queen of the Hippos, the remains of the Storm King somehow dancing, and Angel Bunny bopping with Fluttershy's bird choir. Blink and you'll miss an appearance by Discord in the crowd. See more »

Pure awesome for fans of the show..others? Well we'll see about that
9 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

It was pretty much what I expected; a longer version of one of the TV episodes, which is fine with me since that's really all it's meant to be. The songs were all very good, but the one done by Tempest really stood out to me. The new animation used in the film was absolutely beautiful. A true step up from the flash animation. All of the characters had their moments, from Pinkie Pie's party canon to Fluttershy telling one of the big baddies "You seem tense. Do you want to talk about it?" Rarity is absolutely adorable with her meltdown proclaiming "The bad guys have won!" Rainbow Dash's sonic rainboom looks awesome with the new animation. The storm king seemed more like an afterthought than a real villain with Tempest playing the biggest role on the bad guys side. Extremely well done animation and voice acting. Fans of the show will love it, but it will not get many new fans. I would say a rock solid movie effort well worth another one in the future.
