Unleash the Fanboy: "It’s been over a year since My Little Pony: Equestria Girls hit theaters. When it was first announced it garnered many negative reactions from fans. There was so much pre-hate but when it came out it delivered a fun, exciting, and heartwarming story about friendship. Despite reviews for the most part being favorable, many thought it would be a one and done thing. Until of course Rainbow Rocks was announced. There wasn’t as much hype in comparison to the first one. There wasn’t much dislike, but it appeared that unlike the first one there wasn’t going to be any correlation with the pony world. It looked to be solely High School Musical in Equestria Girls format. But if it’s one thing fans have learned by now is that it’s best to never underestimate the MLP team. Rainbow Rocks isn’t quite as engaging as the first Equestria Girls for a few reasons, but overall it’s another solid trip into the MLP universe. (And a solid way to hold you over until Season 5!)"
