(2017) (voices of Tara Strong, Emily Blunt) (PG)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Animated Adventure: A sextet of talking ponies elude capture by an evil pony and leave their land in hopes of finding help to defeat her and her master.
- A celebration is about to take place in Ponyville, with Twilight Sparkle (voice of TARA STRONG), the pony Princess of Friendship, in charge of the festivities, with her loyal assistant, Spike the Dragon (voice of CATHY WESELUCK), at her side. But invaders then disrupt the event as the broken-horned Tempest Shadow (voice of EMILY BLUNT) arrives with her assistant, Grubber (voice of MICHAEL PEŅA), and other goons.
They work for The Storm King (voice of LIEV SCHREIBER) who wants to get his hands on the magic possessed by Twilight Sparkle and three other pony princesses. They manage to capture those other three, but Twilight Sparkle, along with the rest of the Mane 6 -- Applejack (voice of ASHLEIGH BALL), Rainbow Dash (voice of ASHLEIGH BALL), Pinkie Pie (voice of ASHLEIGH LIBMAN), Fluttershy (voice of ASHLEIGH LIBMAN) and Rarity (voice of TABITHA ST. GERMAIN) -- manage to escape, with them last mishearing the instructions that they should find the "hippo queen" for help.
The six ponies then embark on a journey out of Equestria where they meet a variety of characters along the way whose motives come into question. There's Capper (voice of TAYE DIGGS), a street cat who's in debt and seemingly helps the ponies but does so only in hopes of selling them to the highest bidder. There's also Captain Celaeno (voice of ZOE SALDANA), and her ragtag group of birds who now work making deliveries for The Storm King, but were once pirates of the sky.
And finally there's Princess Skystar (voice of KRISTIN CHENOWETH), a pony who now lives under the sea with her mother, Queen Novo (voice of UZO ADUBA), thanks to a magic pearl that's transformed them and kept them and their kind hidden from The Storm King. With Tempest Shadow and her goons hot on their trail, Twilight Sparkle and her friends try to elude them and get help for those back in Equestria.
