My Little Pony A New Generation is out on Netflix on September 24th, but we were lucky enough to attend the UK premiere and watch the movie a little early so that we can share our review with you.
Once upon a time, ponies, pegasi and unicorns all lived in harmony, but those days are no more. When a happy-go-lucky unicorn wanders into Maretown, Earth Pony “Sunny” and her new friends set out on an adventure to restore magic and friendship to all of Equestria!
In this new My Little Pony movie, join a new generation of ponies as they set out on an adventure to prove that friendship is for every pony, and our sparkle is brightest when we shine together!
My Little Pony A New Generation opens with 2D animation of some of the familiar and classic My Little Pony characters, before breaking into a beautifully animated explosion of colourful CGI as the new generation of characters are revealed on screen.
This is the first time a My Little Pony movie has been created with computer animation, and it has definitely been worth the wait. This quality of the animation and the depth of story line in this My Little Pony movie are impressive, and it also has a great soundtrack with songs that I will not mind when my daughter wants to listen to them over and over again!
The movie is a rainbow of colour, positivity, overcoming fears and of course the magic of friendship. My 4 year old daughter was gripped from start to finish and I really enjoyed watching this movie together with her.
Set the date and make sure to enjoy a family movie night with My Little Pony: A New Generation on Netflix from September 24th – You are going to love it!
My Little Pony A New Generation Story Line
Many years after the events of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, Twilight Sparkle’s teachings on friendship and harmony have been replaced with paranoia and mistrust, and the three pony kinds – Earth ponies, pegasi, and unicorns live separated from one another. In the Earth pony town of Maretime Bay, Argyle Starshine tells stories of Twilight Sparkle and her friends to his young daughter Sunny Starscout, who inherits his dream of reuniting the three pony kinds.
One day, after Sunny has grown up, a lost unicorn named Izzy Moonbow wanders into Maretime Bay. The town’s residents react in panic, believing that Izzy is a hostile invader. Sunny, finally given an opportunity to make friends with a unicorn, shelters Izzy in her home, and Izzy reveals to her that unicorns no longer have magic powers following their sudden disappearance. Together, they embark on an adventure and travel across Equestria on a mission to restore magic to the land.

My Little Pony A New Generation Characters
Who are the new My Little ponies? The five main characters are…
- Sunny Starscout – Earth Pony (voiced by Vanessa Hudgens)
- Izzy Moonbow – Unicorn (voiced by Kimiko Glenn)
- Hitch Trailbazer – Earth Pony (voiced by James Marsden)
- Zipp Storm – Pegasus (voiced by Liza Koshy)
- Pip Storm – Pegasus (voiced by Sofia Carson)
Each of these new My Little Ponies has a unique and loveable character, with different personalities that will appeal to each child.
N’s favourite character was the unicorn Izzy Moonbow, who is funny, ditzy and always sees the positive in every situation. She stands out among the other unicorns of Bridlewood, with her love of crafts and her joy for life.
We also loved the main character Sunny who is the hero of the movie. Sunny’s story is so heartwarming as she pushes all of the other ponies, of all types, towards unity, love and friendship enabling them to regain their magic powers once again.
Her Earth Pony friend Hitch is a boy pony, who has a change of heart at first trying to stop Sunny from uniting with the unicorns and Pegasi, to later joining with their mission.
The royal Pegasus ponies Zipp and Pip are sisters, both with very different looks and personalities. Zipp is the pegasus princess superstar who sings and is a social media icon in their Kingdom city of Zephyr Heights, meanwhile Pip has a more rebellious and edgy look with a short rainbow mohawk.

And take a look at one of the songs from the movie – as I mentioned, the music in this movie is definitely one of it’s strengths.
