About the DVD
Four beloved My Little Pony films are returning to DVD January 21 in the U.S. and Canada when the My Little Pony: Classic Movie Collection is released by Shout! Factory Kids in collaboration with Hasbro Studios. The 2-disc set contains the films Princess Promenade, Runaway Rainbow, Dancing In The Clouds, and Friends Are Never Far Away.

In the highly popular Princess Promenade, Wysteria is beaming with pride! Her gardens are in bloom, her little Breezie friends are in town, and it’s time for Ponyville’s fanciest spring parade, the ultimate celebration of flowers! But things don’t go according to plan when Wysteria accidentally awakens Spike the Dragon, a sleepy, silly, 1,000-year-old dragon! For you see, legend holds that when a dragon is awakened, a new princess is about to be crowned! But who is the Princess of Ponyville?

If it’s all about rainbows it must be about Rainbow Dash. And it is. In Runaway Rainbow, Rainbow Dash loves the time of year when Ponyville and Breezie Blossom are all about celebrating rainbows. Meanwhile, in a new magical place called Unicornia, Rarity is being taught how to be a Unicorn Princess and the importance of making the first rainbow of the season. But Rarity embarks on an incredible ride that includes a magic wand, falling through the clouds right into the middle of Breezie Blossom, a visit to Ponyville, meeting Spike the Dragon, and a huge adventure as she tries to get back to Unicornia. She soon realizes that getting home in time to create the first rainbow of the season is not an easy thing to do - but it is fun!

In Dancing In The Clouds, the Friendship Ball is coming up, and Twinkle Twirl needs to come up with a special dance. A roller coaster ride with friends makes her feel like she’s “dancing in the clouds,” so Sky Wishes helps her make an extra special wish to come up with a dance to make everyone feel that way.

In Friends Are Never Far Away, good friends Sky Wishes and Starcatcher the Pegasus want all of their friends in Ponyville and Butterfly Island to meet. Pegasus ponies are very shy however, so the two plan a special party with music, games and a Pegasus-favorite, ice cream. The party planning doesn’t go so smoothly, but it’s quite an adventure!

The My Little Pony brand has been beloved for three decades, and is now more popular than ever. My Little Pony: Classic Movie Collection features 180 minutes of classic My Little Pony fun!

My Take on the DVD
This was a great DVD with four great episodes. As a parent, one of the things that I am always looking for in a show that my kids watch is the message that it shares. This series continues to impress me with the message of friendship, kindness and love that the show exudes. On top of that it shares messages of teamwork and even throws in some adventure along the way. My girls have enjoyed this series for years now, and these additional shows were great to watch and share with them and they simply loved them and so will your family!
