What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that My Little Pony: The Movie (not to be confused with the 1986 movie with the same name) will appeal to young kids -- especially fans of the Friendship Is Magic TV show -- and that it's full of positive messages. But it does have a few scenes that could frighten very young or sensitive children. Equestria (the pony homeland) is under attack by big, skunk-like villains who come out of the sky in airships that make dark clouds that blot out the sun. And ponies are shown in mortal danger -- for example, falling out of one of the airships -- but they are saved. An evil pony emits dangerous electrical sparks from her horn; at one point, a pony picks up a skull, and a bug crawls out and across the face. Otherwise, the movie is loaded with great takeaways -- support your friends, work together, don't give up, etc. -- as the ponies band together to drive out their rivals and put on a big Friendship Festival. Expect a couple of mildly rude moments -- two belches and a butt-scratch joke -- and a few scenes in which characters appear to be attracted to each other or jealous. But overall this is a sweet, gentle movie ideal for young grade-schoolers.
