Almost everyone in their 30s has heard of Hasbro's My Little Pony toys that were first introduced to kids during the 1980s, followed by a theatrical animated movie, animated specials and a television series. The toys are currently its fourth generation which has been reinforced by a new hit animated series, My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, and another theatrical film, My Little Pony Equestria Girls.

My Little Pony Equestria Girls centered on pony Twilight Sparkle traveling to an alternate world to recover her lost crown. In this world, she is a human and she meets her pony friends' human counterparts. It's sequel My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks had a short run in theaters before landing on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Copy today from Shout! Factory.

The sequel is set once again in the human world, where sirens, Adagio Dazzle, Aria Blaze, and Sonata Dusk, have put a spell on Principal Celestia and Vice Principal Luna when they performed a song. This leads Sunset to send a message through a magic book to Twilight asking for help. Twilight Sparkle and Spike the dragon, who is now a dog in alternate world, goes to the human world to stop the sirens, but they only way to do so is to sing a song to cast a counter-spell.

The regular DVD comes with a coupon, which can save you $4 when you buy the DVD and any one Hasbro Equestria Girls toy. Target has an exclusive version of the My Little Pony Equestria: Girls Rainbow Rocks DVD, which has a Rainbow Rocks bracelet inside as well as the $4 coupon. Only at Walmart, the My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks DVD includes My Little Pony music on CD for the first time, a digital copy of the movie and the $4 coupon. Kmart is offering an exclusive version of the My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks DVD that contains an exclusive Limited-Edition Rainbow Rocks Backstage Pass and the $4 coupon.

While I have seen a handful of episodes from the current television series, I haven't seen the first Equestria Girls film, but it didn't stop me from reviewing the sequel, which was animated pretty well. There are plenty of original catchy songs throughout the movie, I believe there were 10 songs. Overall, My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks is a fun family film and proves why the My Little Pony franchise keeps getting better and better with age.
