Equestria Girls: Legend Of Everfree is the fourth chapter of the human version ๐Ÿ‘ซ movie trilogy!
Verified purchase
I may be late but Iโ€™ve been a Brony (which is actually what they call young adult MEN including me AND middle-aged MEN fans of the My Little Pony franchise just like me) since July 2017 (something I shouldโ€™ve done a long time ago but then of course, I eventually caught up and eventually saw EVERYTHING) and I absolutely LOVE the human version ๐Ÿ‘ซ My Little Pony: Equestria Girls - Legend Of Everfree which is basically like the fourth chapter of the My Little Pony: Equestria Girls human version movie trilogy (I also still have the TV show called Friendship Is Magic Seasons 1-7 ALL ON DVD to this day AND I also still have the 2017 movie ON Blu-Ray to this day PLUS I EVEN got my pre-ordered copy of Friendship Is Magic Season 7/Seven EVEN ON DVD from Amazon the day it came out five months ago as well)! Especially my all-time favorite pony characters (for example: Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, Princess Twilight Sparkle, Fluttershy, Applejack and Rarity)! IF youโ€™re a Brony just like me, then the 2017 movie, the human version ๐Ÿ‘ซ called Equestria Girls AND the TV show Friendship Is Magic Seasons 1-8 are ALL probably for you (I said โ€œprobablyโ€)! #Brony #Bronies ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฆ„๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฆ„๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฆ„๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฆ„๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฆ„๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฆ„

A touching movie that explores Twilight Sparkle's character (gives her a sense of struggle and conflict).

I don't get the dislike for this movie. It does a great job at exploring Twilight's character.

This movie takes place just after Season 3 but just before Season 4. At the end of Season 3, Twilight becomes an Alicorn and in this movie, you get to see how she deals with it a little (the first 5 minutes or so of the movie) and then later how she deals this new world and how she tries to solve things in that (Equestria Girls) world.

I am making this review after seeing all three Equestria Girls movie so far (2015). I know some fans don't like the movie but honestly, I don't understand why. The movie does a great job at exploring Twilight's character (at least the first half).

Now I admit that in the second half, the sense of struggle with Twilight is gone but I still appreciate the movie for adding more depth to Twilight's character.

Personally I love this movie because it touched me.

The scene that did it (some minor spoilers) is the scene where Twilight couldn't figure out how to use a vending machine and she looked so sad and said how she didn't know much about this world or if she can find a way this time. Another scene was when Twilight wasn't sure whether the others would believe she is a Pony Princess.

Those two scenes alone (alone with the rest of the movie) made the movie worth it. It adds a lot to Twilight's character. You get to see another side (well you do sometimes in FIM but not as much) of Twilight. You feel her struggles and you want her to succeed.

In the regular MLP: FIM show, I find that characters aren't explored (in terms of conflict) as much The movie does a great job with exploring Twilight and giving her a conflict that she kind of struggles with (something that shows another side of Twilight that isn't as explored as much).

I admit though, Twilight only kind of struggles during the first half of the movie. The second half kind of doesn't have as much sense of a conflict or struggle (but it's still touching all the way through). Regardless though, I found the movie enjoyable throughout.

One negative though is that there is a few dull moments in the movie but I'd say the majority of the movie is enjoyable.

Personally, I like it more than Rainbow Rocks and it is equal with Friendship Games. The problem I have with Rainbow Rocks is that while there is more things happening (and more characters), there isn't as much sense of progression in conflict.

The majority of Rainbow Rocks were characters arguing (or aimlessly trying to find some way to win against the Sirens), then near the end of the movie there was a 2 minute pep talk that suddenly switched things around and let the Mane Six + Sunset Shimmer win. That's why I don't like Rainbow Rocks as much (I did enjoy it though). Not only that, (personally) Rainbow Rocks didn't really show a specific character struggling in the way that it touched me (and I wanted them to win). IMO, both Equestria Girls (this movie) and Friendship Games does a better job at that than Rainbow Rocks. I rate Rainbow Rocks 4/5 though, it was still enjoyable but personally I didn't like it as much as the other two.

Overall, that's why I give this movie a 5/5. It does a great job at exploring Twilight Sparkle's character.

A fun movie for kids and parents alike
Verified purchase
When watching this movie you have to keep in mind that you should enjoy it for what it is. This isn't a masterpiece among animated film, it's no Toy Story 3. There's no escaping the fact that it's a marketing ploy to sell dolls. That being said, this is a really entertaining movie. Even though there's a drastic change in the design of the ponies now that they're human, the personalities and quirks of the characters still remain in tact ( Twilight Sparkle as a human is adorable) and they're is a abundance of little nods to My little Pony's older fans so it is very true to it's source material. I think the humor and animation(while stiff at times) is a lot fun and very expressive. However, I do have problems with this movie. One problem being the music. Now, I'm a huge fan of Daniel Ingram, a lot of the songs he composes for television match the quality to that of a motion picture. In this movie is filled with very generic sounding pop music and only one of the tracks really stand out(those of you who watch the movie probably know which one I'm talking about) All in all this is really just a longer episode of My little pony. There's no real offensive material or over the top girlyness. It's just a fun time for all ages!

Digital Download Lacking
Verified purchase
I enjoyed the movie, definitely worth a watch. This package includes two discs, a DVD and a Blu-Ray.

The included "digital copy" is actually just a code to go download the movie from Shout Factory's website. You are made to choose between "Windows Media Player" and "Android/iOS" for the format that you want to receive, and then only either 480p or 720p resolutions. I chose the higher res WMV, and was sorely disappointed. The file is encrypted with some kind of DRM which means it will only play in Windows Media Player (not VLC, forget about it on Linux). I saw noticeable intermittent quality issues during playback which were obvious defects in the file. You would be much better off making your own 1080p rip of the Blu-Ray if you want a digital copy.

Good value, enjoyable movie (if a bit short). It would have been five stars if the digital copy weren't awful.

Wonderful Animation and Music
Verified purchase
My kids are four, two and one years old. They absolutely love this movie. The animation is still the same crisp, beautiful animation from the TV show. There are several new songs which my kids ask me to play over and over. And I'm happy to play them, as I like the music, too. Twilight's transition from pony to human had me worried, and at first I "poo poo'd" the movie. But it is done beautifully.

One small disappointment, they added a slightly romantic aspect between the character Twilight Sparkle and a boy named Flash. Since she is transported to a "human" world and is in high school, I guess they couldn't leave this kind of interaction out. But it makes the movie geared a little more toward girls a little older (ie. 8-11 years), and at the end, the romantic aspect follows her to her pony world with a new pony named Flash. It's left completely open ended, and I assume the next season will also contain this aspect.

Overall, an excellent movie.

Impressed
Verified purchase
I was a doubter. Yes, I am a My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic fan, and I was unhappy that the first contemporary MLP film was about "Humans in Equestria." (Yes, Hasbro, I'd still like to see an epic MLP:FIM movie. Just a suggestion, if you want my money.)

But this film won me over. The personalities of Twilight and Spike were spot on, as were the other characters. Viewed as a side-episode of MLP:FIM, this is pretty good.

If I had a complaint about the film, it's that body-types other than tall-and-skinny weren't represented much. I would have liked to see Truffle Shuffle (dark, probably Hispanic and, President, I'm sure, of the Chess Club) in the hallways. And Scootaloo as a "differently-abled" child (which, I think, fits with Lauren Faust's vision of her) would have been refreshing. (I love Scoots and would dearly love to see her fly; but, maybe, that's not her destiny.)

This feature has a good heart and I am glad to embrace it.

Love this movie, but the digital copy is odd.
Verified purchase
I was one of lucky few bronies that lived near one of the early theater showings, and I loved every bit of this movie. Sure, Hasbro made it to make more money but I'm happy to make this trade for a great product. The visuals are great, the colors are mesmerizing, and the songs are memorable. I've had numerous songs from the movie stuck in my head for weeks. I've been waiting for this blu-ray longer than anything this year.

With all this said, there is a strange audio difference between the blu-ray and the digital copy. The digital copy's audio sounds like the movie is being played through a window, it sounds distant. My only guess is that the file is of lower quality to keep costs down. The blu-ray's audio is perfect, I watched it three times in a row just to make sure. Just to make sure.

Faithful to MLP style.
Verified purchase
I am a Brony of sorts, and I give this movie five stars.
When one of my little buddies found out that I had ordered the BluRay version of MLP-EG, she decided to
have a slumber party where she and all of her little friends could spend an evening watching it.
Then she asked me if they could watch my copy, depending on the Power of Cuteness to get her way, as
little girls so often do.
Her parents wisely decided that they had plans for that night, and that it was my duty to babysit, as it was,
after all, my copy of the movie that started the whole thing rolling. Or snowballing, as it turned out.
So I found myself playing sheepdog for the night to an avalanche of adorability. Watching Equestria Girls
over and over. With repeats of the most popular scenes, like the Cafeteria rally.
Y'know, I liked it. The little girls, who comprised it's target audience, loved it. Five stars, indeed.

Now, let me address some of the critics here on Amazon:
#1, this movie was not meant to represent any particular type of schoolkid. I doubt if there were very many
fat girls who walked away from this movie feeling sad because no character looked like them. If there were,
then they have way more problems that any movie can counter.
In fact, I doubt if there were any black-haired, chocolate skinned darlings who walked away sad for the
same reason. Or any lighter-shinned or Asian girls, either. Face it, under those circumstances, the only
girls who would be satisfied would be the punks, goths, emos and other alts. Because most of the
characters in this movie, even the adults, looked like nobody in real life. Because, y'know, purple skin?
Green hair?
Don't get me started on body image. OH MY GOD! This movie is telling little girls that their ideal body would
have their feet amputated to fit them into stubby tube boots! Waaahhhh! Evil!
Get real, folks. It's a movie, not a life-changing event.

#2, this movie was produced for little girls, not Bronies. So the whole ponies-as-humans line of whining is
pretty much a wash. The target audience loves it, and that's all that matters.
In fact, why are the Bronies complaining so vociferously about the writers doing something THAT BRONIES
THEMSELVES DO SO MUCH OF? Just do a search for "Pony Porn" sometime... Rather, don't. What you will
see can never be unseen. Just don't.

#3, the movie was a little preachy in spots. Yeah, a movie that shows different groups of kids like rockers,
artists, jocks and ecos cooperating to accomplish good goals is a bad thing right? The target audience
seemed to like it, so get stuffed.

In the end, I will give this movie five stars. It was well written, with a good story and message, the artistic
style was faithful to the MLP series, and the characters' personalities and behaviors were faithful to their
MLP prototypes. I especially liked all of the background characters that you could recognize as
background characters from the MLP series, like Photo Finish and others. They even had their cutie marks
worked into the decorations on their clothing, which was a nice touch.

But the major reason for my giving it five stars has little to do with the fact that I enjoyed watching it.
The major reason is that the little girls I know enjoyed watching it. And in the end, that's what matters.
Priorities, people!
