Ava loves to watch the My Little Pony series, and she was excited to receive the 'My Little Pony: Equestria Girls' three DVD gift set. The release date for this box gift set will be on October 13th, 2015 in Canada and the U.S. - in stores everywhere. Pre-order is available at Amazon.com.
'My Little Pony: Equestria Girls' Includes:
"When her crown is stolen from the Crystal Empire, Twilight Sparkle pursues the thief, Sunset Shimmer, into an alternate world where she finds herself turned into a teenage girl. With the help of her new friends who remind her of Ponyville's Applejack, Rarity, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, and Fluttershy, she embarks upon a quest to find the crown and change the destiny of these two parallel worlds."
The theme of this movie centers around forgiveness and giving people second chances to be their best selves.
"Canterlot High 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. A new girl group, The Dazzlings, arrive at CHS and convince everyone to turn the friendly showcase into a Battle of the Bands. Tensions mount and Sunset Shimmer realizes that the Dazzlings may not be ordinary girls and are after something more sinister. The Rainbooms call on Princess Twilight to return 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."
I have sat with my daughters and watched this movie many times, and I feel that it is full of profound ideas. The themes in 'Rainbow Rocks' center around competitiveness vs. harmony, separation vs. friendship, and darkness vs. light. The final scene has the symbol of the Winged Sun-Disc appear in the sky when The Dazzlings are defeated. (The Winged Sun-Disc is an ancient symbol for ascension of the soul/true light.)
"Canterlot High meets its rival school, Crystal Prep Academy, in a competition that's a long-standing tradition - the Friendship Games. Sunset Shimmer is tasked with keeping magic out of the games to avoid the appearance of impropriety while she and her friends compete against Crystal Prep's top students led by someone with an equal amount of interest in Equestrian magic - this world's Twilight Sparkle."
Throughout the games the girls take on the challenges as a team and their friendship never wavers. Those who are overly competitive in the games realize that they're wrong in the end, and everyone forgives each other.
