Dusk Shine the Alicorn, known in United Kingdom Dusk Shine as Casper, and in Japan as 夕暮れがAlicornシャイン (Dusk Shine Alicorn), is a planned family comedy fantasy film starring Philip McGhee and Jakyia McGhee, and the eighth Tezuka film overall, based on the tv show, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. The characters featured in the film were created through Adobe Flash CS6.0. The film was made in the studio, BrittalCroftFan, it's production, Tezuka Osamu Productions, and distributed by Hasbro.


A spoiled girl named Sunset Shimmer attends the reading of her late father's will and learns he has only left her the old Golden Oaks Library in a town a little far from Ponyville. Learning there may be treasure hidden within the library, Sunset Shimmer and her attorney Snips visit the house but discovered it is haunted by a friendly yet lonely alicorn, Dusk Shine, and worse, his three obnoxious brothers, Rainbow Blitz, Butterscotch, and Derpo. Sunset Shimmer hires several professional including Time Turner, Apple Bloom, Sweetie Belle and Scootaloo to remove the both the alicorn and the pegasus with no success. While watching television, Dusk Shine learns of Big Macintosh, a paranormal therapist who helps both alicorns and unicorns complete their unfinished business and move on, and immediately falls interest with his sister Applejack. He manipulates Sunset Shimmer into contacting Big Macintosh to visit the library.

Big Macintosh travels the country with Applejack, really in search of the ghost of his deceased girlfriend, Miss Cheerilee. They move into Golden Oaks Library, but Dusk Shine's attempt to befriend Applejack backfires when his brothers arrive home and cause havoc. The next day, Dusk Shine tries to keep the peace between his brothers and their new earth pony guests. Big Macintosh begins to counsel the Brother Trio who claim they know where Miss Cheerilee dwells, but Derpo pulls a prank on him. Applejack begins her first day at school, and unintentionally convinces the class to hold their Halloween party at Golden Oaks Library. She also is befriended by classmate Spike, who asks her to the dance by order of her friend Rarity, the stroppy, spoiled class president who was originally going to host the party. Applejack learns Dusk Shine has no memories of his life and searches the house for a way to help him remember. She finds Dusk Shine's bedroom and helps him remember his childhood. Upon finding an old potion book, he remembers that he transformed into an alicorn, after drinking the transformation potion, and instead of flying away, he chose to stay behind so his father wouldn't be lonely.

Applejack finds a newspaper article describing how Dusk Shine's father attempted to create a machine named the Lazarus, designed to resurrect his alicorn son but he was sent to an insane asylum. As Dusk Shine and Applejack go to find the Lazarus, Sunset Shimmer and Snips sneak in after the Brother Trio drag Big Macintosh out for a happy hour. While out, the Trio consider transformed Big Macintosh, certain that he will become a pegasus and join their band, but when he tells them that he won't force them out of their house, they decide they like him too much to simply pressure him.

Meanwhile, Dusk Shine and Applejack find a secret passage down to the laboratory of Dusk Shine's father, while Sunset Shimmer and Snips spot a vault where they assume the treasure is. Upon learning that the Lazarus works by inserting a formula which turns ones back into earth ponies, Sunset Shimmer and Snips steal said formula with the intention of using its power to rob banks as alicorns or pegasus then come back to life to enjoy their ill-gotten riches. Upon finding out the formula will work on only one, the two end up turning on each other, leading to Sunset Shimmer falling into the vat of potions, but returning as a demon. Sunset Shimmer confronts Dusk and Applejack, spiriting herself into and out of the vault with the treasure, and throws Snips out of a nearby window (in which he's still survives). Dusk and Applejack fool Sunset Shimmer into admitting she has no unfinished business, forcing her to cross over to the afterlife. Dusk's 'treasure' is revealed to be an autographed baseball signed by Brooklyn Dodgers player Duke Snider.

Big Macintosh and the Brother Trio appear, the former having transforms by falling down a manhole while slept. Big Macintosh has no memories of Applejack, who is heartbroken, but when she reminds him of who she is, he is shocked at what he has done to himself. Dusk Shine gives up the chance to become a human by allowing Big Macintosh to use the Lazarus and reunite with Applejack. The Halloween party kicks off downstairs, but Applejack realizes she was tricked by Spike and Rarity (who planned to upstage the party) when Dusk's brothers chase them out of the library. Dusk Shine sits sadly alone in his room until the spirit of Miss Cheerilee appears and grants him a wish in gratitude for caring for her daughter and brother—to spend one night as a human, allowing her to dance with Applejack until ten o'clock. Miss Cheerilee then visits Big Macintosh and tells him that the reason why he couldn't find her was because she had already fly away and entered the afterlife, but Dusk's brothers were able to get in contact with her in gratitude for giving them the most fun they've had in years. Before leaving, she tells him he can move on. Ten o'clock chimes, and Dusk Shine kisses Applejack just as he transforms back into an alicorn, scaring away all of the party guests, leaving Dusk Shine, Applejack, Big Macintosh and the brother Trio to celebrate Halloween themselves.

Quote 2

  • Applejack: Sometimes I worry that I'm starting to forget.
  • Dusk Shine: Forget what?
  • Applejack: My brother's girlfriend. Just certain things. The sound of her making breakfast downstairs. The way she'd put on her lipstick, so carefully. I do remember, she always used a beautiful dress, and when she'd hug me, I'd breathe her in, so deep. And I remember before I'd go to sleep she'd whisper in my ear, "stardust in the eyes, rosy cheeks, and a happy girl in the morning." Dusk Shine?
  • Dusk Shine: Hmm?
  • Applejack: If my brother's girlfriend's a pony, did she forget about me?
