My daughters were so excited to see this movie played multiple of times.
There's a brand new feature film in the popular My Little Pony canon. Following a theatrical run in the fall of 2014, where the film opened with enthusiastic reviews to packed crowds in over 400 threaters, My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks will be released October 28 in the U.S. and Canada from Shout! Factory Kids, in collaboration with Hasbro Studios, as a single-disc DVD, and in Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy Combo. Bonus features include a audio commentary, 8 Prequel Shorts and Sing-Alongs.
In My Little Pony Equestria Girls, released in fall 2013, Twilight Sparkle's crown was stolen from the Crystal Empire, and she pursued the thief, Sunset Shimmer, into a alternate world where she finds herself turned into...a teenager girl! To regain her crown and return to Equestria, Twilight had to learn how to fit into this strange, new world and defeat Sunset Shimmer in a competition to become crowned Princess of the Fall Formal at Canterlot High.
Now, the girls of Canterlot High are back, and this time they're rocking guitar! In My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks, Canterlot High (CHS) is hosting a musical showcase, and Rainbow Dash, Applejack, Pinkie Pie, Rarity, and Fluttershy are going to be performing with their new band, The Rainbooms. But with The Dazzlings, a new girl group, arrive at CHS and convince everyone to turn the friendly showcase into a Battle of the Bands, tensions mount between the competing musical acts. A now-reformed Sunset Shimmer realizes that The Dazzlings may not be ordinary girls and are after something far more sinister than just being named Best Band at Canterlot High. The Rainbooms call on Princess Twilight to restore harmony to their world to help them perform a musical counter-spell so that they can win a battle that now determines the fate of the entire school.
My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks is now available for pre-order at Amazon.com, Target.com, ShoutFactory.com, and Walmart.com, and will be in stores everywhere October 28.
