My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic – Princess Twilight Sparkle Movie Review



Everyone loves to have their favorite show on DVD so they can grab it off their shelf and watch it any time they want. I know that children, especially, love to have those shows at their fingertips so that they can watch them over, and over…and over again. I cannot deny that I am one of those people. My Little Pony is definitely one of the greatest animated shows on TV at the moment, so I’m always excited by the opportunity to watch this show whenever I want. However, I can’t necessarly say that I was the most impressed by the show’s latest DVD release, “Princess Twilight Sparkle.” (And this is completely ignoring the fact that Twilight Sparkle is my least favorite pony).
Featured on the DVD is six fun season three episodes, including “Games Ponies Play,” “Magical Mystery Cure,” “Mmmystery On the Friendship Express,” “Magical Duel,” and “Lesson Zero.” All episodes are great fun, but my concern is that there is no rhyme or reason to them. This selection is just a random allotment of various episodes from season 3. This may not be a problem for everyone, but those trying to collect the show, this may prove to be a let-down. I know that I would certainly be upset if I collected two very different collections, and an episode overlapped between both DVDs. I haven’t seen any of the other smaller DVD collections of this show, but I know that it has happened with other shows, particularly animated shows, in the past.
I also found immense disappoinment in the lack of special features on this DVD. One was a sing-a-long, which contained only one song that was featured on the show. There was not a single unique thing about it except the fact that there were words that scrolled along the bottom with the song. I feel that if a DVD is going to include a sing-a-long, it should include several of the great songs featured on this show, so that the viewer feels like they get a real experience, opposed to a brief moment of fun.
The only other feature on the DVD was a CD-Rom option that allowed the viewer to print a single coloring page on their own computer. With the advances of the internet, everything is at your fingertips. I have already printed numerous My Little Pony coloring pages myself, and as a result, this special feature certainly doesn’t feel very special to me.
If the viewer is just looking for a convenient way to watch the show, then this DVD is perfect. But if you’re like me and looking for an extra bang for your buck in the form of special features, then this DVD is definitely not for you. Hopefully a future release of season 3 can make up for what this DVD is lacking. I’m afraid I can only give it 2 ½ out of 5 Nerdskulls.
