Harmony Unleashed: Xtreme Friendship is a Live-action Tokusatsu/animated hybrid American 2013 action-comedy movie directed by Koichi Sakamoto, written by Christopher Yost, David Hayter and Aaron Montalvo, based on Montalvo's screenstory and produced by Toei Company, Hasbro Films, DHX Media, YouTube, K/O Paper Products, Lionsgate and Ivanna The Movie. The distribution is handled by Lionsgate internationally, except in Japan, which it will be handled by Toei Company and Nikkatsu with co-operation with NaruIchi97/AtomicRanger Entertainment Studios Inc.

Production began after filming GXC: The Retri-vengeance in November 2012. The film is scheduled for release on April 6, 2013, but later pushed back to March 29, 2013, which it competes with G.I. Joe: Retaliation, which it's also a Hasbro movie and the first of the official films from Hasbro in 2013 with the second one being Equestria Girls.

The film is released in theatres in Digital 3D and IMAX 3D as well as 2D showings, and months later, the movie will be released on DVD/Digital/Blu-ray in July 2013. This is the first film to release in theatres due to the Digital Stereoscopic 3D becoming popular as well as the first film to receive an R rating by the MPAA and the first back-to-back film with Harmony Unleashed Z.


After the events of the season premiere of YouTube Poop: The Series, (as titled Harmony Unleashed: The Equestrian Princess Promenade) Aaron (Aaron Montalvo) is now 16 years old, while Twilight Sparkle is now a princess, an alicorn and still Aaron's best pony next to Fluttershy. Life is always the same to them, but they sure get used to it. But suddenly, as King Sombra ressurects from the dead, The Fur-King joined Sombra for revenge against them, this time with a human ponidox version of Sombra Himself (Gackt). And now, it's up to Aaron, Twilight Sparkle, and their friends to defeat Sombra, Fur-King and the others from trying to destroy Equestria, The Crystal Empire, and the World.
