We were sent the Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks DVD set in order to review them on Save Green Being Green. I thought my daughter would be very interested in this movie because she was/is (not sure which it is anymore as she is growing up and growing out of some of her toys) in My Little Ponies. The Equestria Girls have the same names as the My Little Ponies, but now they are teen girls dealing with social issues of kids, as opposed to ponies. I think the Equestria Girls are just the next step from the ponies as a child grows up and is still holding on to her interest in the ponies but doesn't want to be a "little girl" anymore and wants to be a "big girl" because to an 8 year old the Equestria Girls are not so little girl.
The messages contained within DVD are the same with regards to how to be a good person and a good friends and interact nicely and appropriately in social situations.
The DVD was just released last week on October 28th and you can buy it direct from Shout Factory, but if you buy it in the store they come with some bonuses depending upon which store you buy it from.

Product Description from Shout Factory:
In My Little Pony Equestria Girls, released in fall 2013, Twilight Sparkle’s crown was stolen from the Crystal Empire, and she pursued the thief, Sunset Shimmer, into an alternate world where she finds herself turned into…a teenage girl! To regain her crown and return to Equestria, Twilight had to learn how to fit into this strange, new world and defeat Sunset Shimmer in a competition to become crowned Princess of the Fall Formal at Canterlot High.
Now, the girls of Canterlot High are back, and this time they’re rocking guitars! In My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks, Canterlot High (CHS) is hosting a musical showcase, and Rainbow Dash, Applejack, Pinkie Pie, Rarity, and Fluttershy are going to be performing with their new band, The Rainbooms. But when The Dazzlings, a new girl group, arrive at CHS and convince everyone to turn the friendly showcase into a Battle of the Bands, tensions mount between the competing musical acts. A now-reformed Sunset Shimmer realizes that The Dazzlings may not be ordinary girls and are after something far more sinister than just being named Best Band at Canterlot High. The Rainbooms call on Princess Twilight to restore harmony to their world to help them perform a musical counter-spell so that they can win a battle that now determines the fate of the entire school.
