  • VIOLENCE/GORE:

    Characters are turned to stone, hit with magic green balls, zapped with blue lightning bolts, kicked, flipped, tripped, thrown through the air/to the ground, squashed by a giant cake, flicked with goo, pursued, captured, caged, near-crushed by rocks when falling down a canyon, lassoed, near-drowned, tied up, muzzled, poked, set alight, pushed over a balcony, smashed to pieces, picked up by a tornado, cannon-blasted through the air. Characters fall into rushing water, freefall from very high distances, transform into sea creatures. Energy bolts suck the power/energy from characters. Swordfighting. Explosion. Towers crushed, castle destroyed, village invaded/damaged, bridge collapse, table knocked over, ship hit in side with giant anchor. A balloon dog deflates as it is crushed. Mass panic, arguing, screaming. A character threatens to "clip their wings, scar them emotionally, tie them up and throw them overboard". Blood/gore: Giant animal skull with tusks, bird skull with beak, Jolly Roger flag. Characters are hit with splats of colour/pie that resemble blood (comic). A unicorn character has a broken horn that flickers blue sparks. Characters on fire (not graphic).

  • SEX/NUDITY:

    (None): When a characters says spots of goo will make your parts fall off an infected character grabs his crotch area. Bum-scratching.

  • VICES/DRUG USE:

    None.

  • LANGUAGE:

  • THEMES:

    My Little Pony, teamwork, friendship, adventure, trust, betrayal, surrender, takeover, escape, stealing, awesomeness, responsibility, kindness.

  • HIDDEN EXTRAS:

Scary green eyes, large scary blimp/ships; scary creatures with frightening claws/manes/tails. Rainbow, waterfall, thunder, lightning, whirlpool, fireworks, hot air balloon, tornado, storm, giant black cloud. Coughing/spluttering/gasping for air.

  • CRITICS LIKE:

    Joyful, silly, colourful, delightful, magical, female-positive, star-packed, nostalgic, positive, fan-friendly, kid-friendly. Lively voice acting, committed performances, clean humour, cute pony puns, gentle-but-genuine scares, rich 2D animation, catchy soundtrack, retro vibe; a fair adaptation of the TV series.

  • CRITICS DON'T LIKE:

    Formulaic, predictable. Simple animation, would be best enjoyed by fans.

A short film preceding the film features fluffy creatures being thrown, hit with objects, chased by a giant moster with big scary teeth/one eye/mouth tentacles/horns/dragon's tail, swept away on a lava lake and drooled on. It also includes raspberry-blowing, a worm, rainbows, screaming, a creature falling over a cliff and themes of unlikely friendships and forgiveness.
