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.
PLOT:
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.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
