See the line where the sky meets the sea?
It calls me
And no one knows
How far it goes
If the wind on my sail
On the sea stays behind me
One day I’ll know
If I go there’s just no telling
How far I’ll go
There are some dark looking gifs of the MLP movie on here, but the reviews say the movie is super colorful and cheerful. What's the truth?
This should’ve been asked to my pony blog, but I’ll answer it here. The reviews I’ve seen have all been completely disingenuous to the tone of the film. Here, I’ll list some stuff that actually happens in the film. Spoilers, obviously.
Luna almost dies within the first 10 minutes.
We see enslaved ponies.
The Storm King makes a not-subtle-at-all death threat to Tempest Shadow.
In Klugetown, we see a black market salesperson selling severed unicorn horns. They casually ask Twilight and Rarity if they’re selling.
Someone tries to sell the ponies into slavery to pay off their debt to a crime lord.
An airship is blown up, in air, with its entire crew and a fugitive still on board.
The ponies almost drown twice. First they’re sucked into a deep underwater cavern with no light or way to reach the surface. The second time, they’re turned back from seaponies to regular ponies while still underwater.
In Tempest Shadow’s flashback, we (briefly) see blood when she loses her horn.
Spike burns some of the Storm King’s minions to death.
