YouTube Poop: Harmony Unleashed Z (known as YouTube Poop: Harmony Unleashed Z - The Live Adaptation of the Human Ponidox Continuum Shift and formerly as Ponidox Ignition as a full CGI-animated/live action movie) is a action comedy spoof telefilm/DTV film directed by Koichi Sakamoto, written by Aaron Montalvo, Michael Bacall and Dave Polsky and produced by Toei Company, Hasbro Films, DHX Media, YouTube, The Collective Studios, K/O Paper Products, Lionsgate Television and Ivanna The Movie for AMtv.

The film is loosely based on the 2012 television series, Harmony Unleashed: Human Ponidox Continuum Shift produced by Sunrise, Geneon Universal and Harmony Ponidox Shift Project and the Harmony Unleashed media franchise. However, it is not canon to the anime but a loose adaptation inspired by the anime sharing the same universe as the main series' films and the later TV series.

The film first aired on TV on June 8, 2013 followed by a sneak peek of Harmony Unleashed: Guardians of Equestria and later it released on home video and digital streaming services on July 2013.


Taking place in YouTube Poop: The Series as an alternate scenery to HPCS, A mysterious orb led Twilight and Aaron into a discovery and then after she used her magic, a non-destructive blast happened when the Ponidox is now unleashed into them on Earth. Now Twilight and the Others are now humans, but with a twist of genders for AppleJack and Rainbow Dash, and a twist of age for Spike as Humans as well as others in both Earth and Equestria. When the humans ended up on Earth, while visiting Equestria and living the life as humans, Some one familiar to them is plotting to destroy the ponies and the whole phenomenon-ism of My Little Pony, and it was Discord, who teams up with their ressurected villains. Now, It's up to Aaron and its crew to stop them, again, just like the main movies of the saga.

Main article: Harmony Unleashed: All Stars DX: The Movie!: Super Ultra Turbo Hyper Mega Crossover Battle!

A sequel has been announced and in post-production according to the San Diego Comic-Con 2013 with the title of All Stars DX: The Movie!: Super Ultra Turbo Hyper Mega Crossover Battle! to be released in theatres and IMAX in August 2014. The film will not only feature the HPCS Characters, but, it will include from Equestria Girls and Anthro Bunraku as well as recent anime and cartoon incarnations.

All the actors from the previous film reprise their roles, while they casted new actors/actresses with Victoria Justice as Sunset Shimmer and Taylor Lautner as Flash Sentry in their human forms. Koichi Sakamoto is set to return to direct the sequel as well as Dave Polsky as writer alongside Montalvo and Lorenzo DiBonaventura as producer. 

As of 2013, Lionsgate announced that the spin-off stand alone films of the film series will be transferred to Summit Entertainment since they don't want only one Harmony Unleashed film distributed by Summit, since it's owned by Lionsgate.
