Ponyville is preparing for a visit from Princess Celestia, and especially Twilight Sparkle wants everything to be perfect. However, when a swarm of adorable insects with ravenous appetites, Parasprites, invades the town, trouble is amiss. While everyone tries to drive the Parasprites out of town, Pinkie Pie is instead focusing on gathering various musical instruments, for some reason.
"Get your muzzle out of those books and make some friends!" That's what Princess Celestia tells Twilight Sparkle. She may be the smartest unicorn in Equestria, but Twilight Sparkle gets an "incomplete" in friendship. There's more to life than learning magic, after all - so she goes to Ponyville on a mission to make friends. There she meets five special ponies who take her on exciting adventures and teach her the most powerful magic of all... the magic of friendship!
