Hey guys! This is my very first review of a My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic episode.
My review will be on To Where and Back Again
In this episode, Starlight Glimmer is invited to her old village to attend a celebration. However, she questions herself on if she's changed.
But, when The Main Six, Spike, Princess Celestia, Princess Luna, Princess Cadence, Shining Armor, and Flurry Heart are kidnapped by Queen Chrysalis, Starlight must lead an unlikely band of heroes to save them. The band consisting of Trixie, Discord, and Thorax.
Will this group of reformed villains save their friends, or is all of Equestria lost?
Anyway, I just wanted to say this: This episode is awesome! I love it!
Everything about it was excellent! The story, the voice performances, the animation, the return of Queen Chrysalis, the focus of Starlight, Trixie, Thorax, and Discord, and the changeling transformations.
The voice performances were not only well done, but also realistic and engaging.
I'm not sure what anyone normally thinks of the animation these days, but to me, the animation gets better and better every season.
I believe that the story is also a lot better than what many say or assume. It's original, suspenseful, eye-catching, and completely unpredictable.
The choice of going from Twilight, Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, Rarity, and Pinkie Pie to Starlight, Trixie, Discord, and Throax as the main characters makes everything all the more perfect and brilliant. They were wonderful as the leads.
Bringing back Queen Chrysalis also helped everything to truly shine. She was the perfect villain for this episode, able to fit like a glove every step of the way.
The transformed changelings were also amazingly designed.
In all things, I can't help but favorably compare this episode to "The Return of Queen Chrysalis" comic. I read this comic before I saw "To Where and Back Again", but I think this episode is far more superior than anything the comic gives, especially in plot.
I'm not sure what anyone else thinks of this episode. But this, is my opinion, and I stand by it no matter what.
