** ''[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicIDWAnnual2013 The Fall of Sunset Shimmer]]'' comic gives Sunset's motive (she wanted to become an alicorn princess hence her jealousy of Twilight Sparkle), the reason she fled through the mirror (it gave a vision of her with the power she sought making her thinks she'd find it there) and a {{handwave}} for how she knew how an Element of Harmony would behave in the human world (her obsession with the mirror led her to find notes on it that presumably contained that info).

The success of the first movie led to a number of sequels and specials. The movies include ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsRainbowRocks Rainbow Rocks]]'' (2014), ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsFriendshipGames Friendship Games]]'' (2015), and ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsLegendOfEverfree Legend of Everfree]]'' (2016).

''My Little Pony: Equestria Girls'' (2013) is a ''[[Franchise/MyLittlePonyGeneration4 Friendship Is Magic]]'' movie made by Creator/{{Hasbro}} Studios and Creator/DHXMedia, set between that show's third and fourth seasons. It is the movie that started the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls'' series.

The concept is simple enough: take the characters of the hit TV show ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' and [[HighSchoolAU put them in high school]]. Now the Mane Six must deal with things such as peer pressure, planning for school dances, popular girls with attitude problems, and yes... even boys.

Sounds simple, right? Did we mention the [[AmazingTechnicolorWildlife pastel-colored ponies]] are now [[AmazingTechnicolorPopulation pastel-colored]] ''[[HumanFocusedAdaptation humans]]''? (And the baby dragon is now a puppy?)

This spin-off franchise is something of a grand experiment for Creator/{{Hasbro}} and their attempt to break into the growing market of alternative dolls. Can you have My Little Pony without the Pony? Is Friendship still Magic? Right now, those questions are [[BrokenBase a matter of debate]], but Hasbro certainly hopes so.

Set between Seasons 3 and 4, the movie centers around Twilight Sparkle and Spike going into an AlternateUniverse when the Element of Magic is stolen by Princess Celestia's former apprentice Sunset Shimmer, turning into a teenage human girl and a talking dog respectively in the process. Along the way Twilight meets human versions of her friends from Ponyville, all of whom turn out to despise each other, and a blue-haired fellow who seems like a nice enough guy. With the help of her new friends in this strange new world they must find the crown and change the destiny of the two parallel worlds.

See the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c3hBtBibN_M first]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WlinLHR2yl4 two]] trailers.

The movie was written by Meghan [=McCarthy=], premiered at the Los Angeles Film Festival on June 16, 2013, and had a limited theatrical run at over 200 US and Canadian theaters in June and July of the same year. It was released on DVD and Blu-ray in the US by Creator/ShoutFactory on August 6, 2013 and later released on DVD in other markets worldwide, and aired later still on Creator/TheHub on September 1st, 2013.

[[Creator/IDWPublishing IDW]] put out a prequel comic as the first issue of their ''My Little Pony'' Annual series, with the 8 page short about Sunset Shimmer's origins printed early in [[http://www.idwpublishing.com/news/article/2608/ IDW's MLPFIM #9 variant at 2013 SDCC]].

A sequel, ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsRainbowRocks'', was announced in February 2014, and was eventually released on September 27th 2014. A third movie, ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsFriendshipGames'', was released straight to TV on the same date in 2015. The fourth movie, titled ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsLegendOfEverfree'' was announced on October 3rd 2015 and released almost a year later on October 1st 2016, this time [[DirectToVideo straight to]] {{Creator/Netflix}}. In October 4th 2016, [[http://worldscreen.com/tvkids/mipjunior-spotlight-hasbro-studios-2/ it was announced that Hasbro was planning "three all-new specials" for 2017]]. These specials are collected in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsMagicalMovieNight'' and were released to DVD on August 8, 2017.

Two different series of cartoon shorts based on the characters have appeared on Hasbro's Website/YouTube channel. The first, ''[[WebAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsSummertimeShorts Summertime Shorts]]'', consists of 16 installments and was released in the summer and fall of 2017. The second is an ongoing weekly series of [[WebAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsDigitalSeries digital shorts]] that premiered on November 17, 2017.

Not to be confused with the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pTPqjKk_xCo commercial]] for ''Friendship Is Magic'', or the parody Website/YouTube videos ''WebAnimation/{{EQUESTRIA GIRLS}}''.
