About the FilmEdit

It's an alternate/non-canonical prequel to 2nd GIG but a spinoff movie to the series involving the same characters. The anime movie is like the Eureka Seven movie (because of the alternate story) mixed with any other animated anime/comic movie with Action, Romance, Adult/Non-childish Humor and other stuff. However, this movie is the additional alternate ending to the first season of Harmony Unleashed: Human Ponidox Continuum Shift. This movie is distributed by Universal Pictures since Hasbro and Universal had a deal, but not to make movies based on board games like the 2012 movie Battleship (directed by Peter Berg). The movie will premiere in September 22nd, to premiere 2nd GIG on TV on a special Time. The movie will be rated R by the Motion Picture Association of America for Intense Bloody Animated Violence, Strong Language, Some Sexual Content/Nudity, Action and Mature Humor Throughout. Former Gainax animators and Trigger founder Hiroyuki Imaishi & Yoh Yoshinari (Gurren Lagann) will be the animation directors of the movie mixing with John Joseco's (Ask Princess Molestia/Gamer Luna) art design. King Sombra is not included in the movie due to his name not confirmed for Season 3 of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic until October 2012 (which he is confirmed for 2nd GIG 2-part Season Finale Antagonist), but is teased at the end of the film.


A new villain (not from season three) named Khan arrives to destroy Canterlot and its beloved Crystal Empire. It's up to the mane six and the others, with the help of Princess Cadence, Shining Armor and the Crystal Ponies to make the Elements of Harmony stronger by adding 2 additional elements known as "Courage" and "Nobility" by finding six crystal azure cores all around the Cartooniverse and Earth. Which implies that Spike might have a noble heart, and Aaron might have Courage since his soul makes him fearless instead of being just a normal yet unusual teenager with Aspergers. They must find all six of them until Khan goes after it and becomes a destructive ultimate weapon to obliterate the land of Equestria, and rule the Cartooniverse.
