Just in time for all the bronies out there, five episodes that comprise the royal pony wedding arch from the popular My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic series. This series currently airs regularly on the HUB TV network in the US. The series is based on the hugely successful toy line from Hasbro. The five episodes included in the DVD are as follows:
“A Canterlot Wedding, Part 1”
“A Canterlot Wedding, Part 2”
“Hearts And Hooves Day”
“Sweet & Elite”
“The Best Night Ever”
The bonus features include 2 sing-alongs “Love Is In Bloom” and “Valentines Day Song” as well as a printable coloring sheet.
The story centers around the betrothal of Princess Cadence to Twilight Sparkle’s older brother Shining Armor. While everyone else seems to be thrilled about the impending nuptials, Twilight Sparkle is not at all pleased with the news.
The themes in the story introduce a very seldom talked about situation in families, when siblings grow up, move away, marry and have families of their own, sometimes a disconnection can occur between those siblings who grew up together so closely. As Twilight Sparkle struggles through her fears, it mirrors some misgivings that many siblings have when their older sibling is about to leave the family home to begin their own adult life.
As bronies will know, My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic often takes the unconventional approach to exploring life lessons and showing parallels in the relationships we have between friends and family in real life.
