    So, I went into this rather concerned that it wouldn’t be good. But honestly, I loved it. It was such a “feel good” kind of film and in fact, while the plot was predictable, I think that’s part of what made it enjoyable. I kept feeling like it was something we’d of seen in Season 4 which honestly I think would’ve been a good time to release this rather then three seasons later. I didn’t realize the animation was HAND DRAWN! I feel kind of ashamed I didn’t realize that… but that explains why I kept being awed by their expressions. I mean, dang… Twilight just wowed me a couple of times in that regard. As to my favorite Pony?… oh Rarity, NO QUESTION! I’ve always adored her… I mean, this is what I went to the premier in.

    Yeah… she’s my favorite, always shall be. I think I’d rank this at three and a half stars, I did genuinely enjoy it and will probably watch it a few more times. 😀

      Added note: Why this picture is upside down is a mystery to me…

    • LOVE that shirt! I honestly didn’t realize it was hand drawn either until another writer pointed it out. Crazy!

        Right?! Kind of is. And thank you! It was actually hard to find a good Rarity T-shirt! Thankfully a website called Redbubble had this littler gem! 😀

    Lovely review, fellow bronies. With the critical reception this is getting, hearing some fangirling was nice.
