My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks

OCTOBER 28, 2014

Los Angeles, CA – There’s a brand new full-length film in the ever-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 theaters, 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 a Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy combo. Bonus features include an 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 an alternate world where she finds herself turned into…a teenage 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 guitars! 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 when 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,,, and, and will be in stores everywhere October 28.

My Thoughts:
My 5 year old daughter is a HUGE My Little Pony fan. We have been catching episodes on TV whenever we can. When My Little Pony: Equestria Girls first came out it quickly became a favorite. We saved it on our DVR but were thrilled to be able to snag it on DVD so we knew we had it. When I heard that the girls of Canterlot High were back.... I knew this was a cannot miss for my little girl!

My predictions were right. My daughter was totally mesmerized by this full-length film. While she loves all the characters, Rainbow Dash is her absolute favorite. She was cheering the Rainbooms on as they rocked their way to to saving the day! I, personally, favor Twilight Sparkle (maybe because I think her dragon, Spike, is awesome). So I was nervous for her as she worked to create the perfect counter-spell.

This movie is filled with our favorite characters, great music, adventure, excitement, and more. It's a great one to watch with your My Little Pony fan!
