Harmony Unleashed: Human Ponidox Continuum Shift The Movie: AppleSpark Complex (劇場版 ハーモニーアンリーシュド ヒューマン·ポニドックス コンティニュームシフト アップルスパーク コンプレックス, Gekijō-ban Hāmonīanrīshudo Hyūman· ponidokkusu Kontinyūmushifuto Appurusupaaku Konpurekksu) is an upcoming Japanese-American animated film based on the anime television series of the same name and a follow-up to the AppleSpark Trilogy, as well as the fourth of the Original series' film series prior to the NeoWave series. The series' cast and crew will be returning to their roots as well as including Tomohiko Ito as the director for the film and produced by Sunrise, Trigger and Studio 4°C in association with the Harmony Unleashed Production Committee.

The film will be released in fall 2014 in Digital 3D, 2D and IMAX 3D in both Japan and North America with distribution by Nikkatsu, Universal Pictures and Funimation. The film is confirmed to have a double feature with the Cutie Mark Crusaders HPCS film.


Set two years after the events of the New Final Chapter film and the final HPCS OVA, Twilight Sparkle and Applejack are now married, and they are living a nice life, as well as being excited that Applejack's Brother, Big Macintosh and their best friend, Fluttershy are getting married too and the birth of Princess Cadance and Shining Armor's children.

However, things turn for better or for worse as they struggle to find a way to start a family and learning to live without Aaron as he had his departure into college, leading to his step-niece Christina to carry his legacy of the resistance alongside his little sisters, Freya and Ivanna (which the latter will carry her uncle and older sister's legacy). 

When there was a bit of conflict towards a union of a family, a desperate demon centaur from the Everfree Forest feeling with rage and taking over the Canterlot Castle, tries to destroy Ponyville and will try to kill Twilight and Applejack. Will the Resistance ever band together without Aaron, which he is deciding to either retire too soon, or better, becoming Chief Prince of the Resistance.
