Now available from Shout! Factory, the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Royal Pony Wedding DVD for $11.99 USD + S&H. The DVD is currently available off their website, and I’m sure soon to a local store near you. The DVD includes the following episodes:
- A Canterlot Wedding, Part 1
- A Canterlot Wedding, Part 2
- Hearts & Hooves Day
- Sweet & Elite
- The Best Night Ever
Bonus features include 2 sing-alongs and a coloring sheet.
The next DVD in the series is dubbed “Adventures in the Crystal Kingdom” which was revealed during the San Diego Comic Con in Shout Factory’s 2012 catalog. Its assumed this DVD will feature Season 3 episodes, meaning so far all we’ve gotten are DVDs for Season 2 and basically nothing for Season 1. This DVD is due out in the final months of 2012.
It is unfortunate that on the home side of things, we’re basically getting a mess due to the stigma of MLP being a girls show. As we’ve talked about in the past, its generally the retailers who decide how the product should be, based on their own expertise of running large chain flea markets like Walmart. If this wasn’t so, then we’d probably actually get a good product from Shout Factory, who is very aware of the community, but unfortunately had their hands tied.
A prime example is on the other side of the world, Region 4 DVD producer Madman Entertainment, which is currently producing a series of 5 or so DVDs with Season 1 with the episodes in sequential order and even providing a box for the first three volumes. We’ll be reviewing the set they sent us later today.
