My Little Pony: The Movie and a Giveaway

This post is sponsored by Lionsgate Premiere.

My Little Pony was all the rage when I was a kid.

 

My grandma gave me my first My Little Pony for my sixth birthday. Its name was Baby Glory, and I was in love.

I was excited to see My Little Pony make a comeback, but I knew Ponies were back for good when I sat down on the NYC subway across from this guy:

I’ll likely see a few more of these characters this weekend as Ponydemonium (I should probably Trademark that phrase) is in full force with the release of My Little Pony: The Movie, in theaters October 6th. Have you seen this trailer yet?

My Little Pony: The Movie – Coming to theaters October 6!

A dark force threatens Ponyville, and the Mane 6 – Twilight Sparkle, Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, Fluttershy, and Rarity – embark on an unforgettable journey beyond Equestria where they meet new friends and exciting challenges on a quest to use the magic of friendship to save their home.

I love it when big names get behind the mic for animated features, because it usually makes for a movie kids and adults can enjoy together. The Pony crew is voiced by an all-star cast, including Emily Blunt, Kristin Chenoweth, Liev Schreiber, Michael Peña, Sia, Taye Diggs, Uzo Aduba and Zoe Saldana. The movie features original music and songs performed by Sia, Diggs, Saldana, Chenoweth and Blunt.

Get SING in Digital HD for Family Movie Night

This post is in partnership with Universal Pictures Home Entertainment

I’ve got great news for your “Friday night what to watch that the whole family will agree on without someone ending up in tears because they don’t like that movie and they never get to pick” dilemma—SING in Digital HD is available now!

SING in Digital HD Sequined Pig

If you ask me, a diva pig in a sequined jumpsuit singing the hits of Lady Gaga is reason enough to get this movie. If you need something more compelling, how about the fact that when you purchase SING in Digital HD on VUDU, you’ll get 3 all-new mini-movies and so many extras? It really is the most dynamic way to watch the year’s biggest animated musical hit.

Using VUDU is pretty simple. You can purchase SING in Digital HD at VUDU.com or on their app. Vudu is easy to use and the app is on your favorite devices (Smart TVs, Blu-ray players, streaming devices [i.e. Roku], and both Android and Apple mobile devices). So that also means you can start a movie on your TV and finish it on your tablet!

The Vudu mobile app is also a great way for kids to watch SING on their own. It lets them tap and swipe their way across the most robust set of interactive bonus content available, including the “SING Interactive Experience,” featuring a carousel of the film’s iconic characters loaded with animation galleries, profiles, cast voice over sessions and more.

If you missed catching SING in the theaters, you’re in for a treat! It was made by Illumination Entertainment, the same studio that made THE SECRET LIFE OF PETS. The basic premise of the film is that all of us have something within us that we can share with others.SING in Digital HD castSING stars Matthew McConaughey as Buster Moon, an eternally optimistic koala who puts on the world’s greatest singing competition to save his crumbling theater; winner Reese Witherspoon as Rosita, an overworked and underappreciated mother of 25 piglets desperate to unleash her inner diva; Scarlett Johansson as Ash, a punk rock porcupine with a beautiful voice behind her prickly exterior; and Taron Egerton as Johnny, a young gangster gorilla looking to break free of his family’s felonies. But in my opinion, the best part of this movie is the likelihood that at some point you’ll end up with a family dance party on your hands while you watch. Movie night and a dance party? I can’t think of anything better.
