Flain's Mixel Rock and Roll Adventure is a new film.
Flain returns to Canterlot high in order to stop a 3 Siren Disney villains from taking it over.
Prologue: Mixel Power
The film opens at a café in the human world. The numerous café patrons argue among themselves as a strange blue mist swirls around their feet. In the corner booth, three Disney villains sing and absorb the blue mist into the green gems on their necklaces. Judge Claude Frollo grumbles that he's "tired of fast food" and needs a meal. Scar laments that the energy in "this world" isn't the same as that in Planet Mixel.
As Governer Ratcliffe joins the conversation and gets into a light argument with Claude Frollo, Scar notices an explosion of light in the distance. He Races out of the café and watches the magical rainbow energy burst into the sky causing an rainbow explosion, grinning evilly when he realizes what it is. he explains to Frollo and Ratcliffe that Mixel Power has found it's way into the human world, and they're going to use it to make everyone adore them.
Six moons later, at Canterlot High School, the students are busy making banners in the auditorium for the school's upcoming musical mixel showcase festival. Mal offers to help Peppa Pig, Suzy Sheep and Rebecca Rabbit with their banner, but they decline much to Mal's disappointment. When Zaptor calls Mal over to join him and his friends, the other present students glare at and gossip about Mal, making him uncomfortable. Magnifo and Zoey quickly changes the subject and shows Mal the banner they made for the showcase (which Zaptor used cake frosting on instead of paste).
Principal Azulongmon and Principal Zhuqiaomon then enter, and Azulongmon says how pleased he is by the amount of student participation in the showcase. However, when he mentions the Fall Formal, the students glare at Mal again and Mal hides his face in humiliation.
Later, in the band room, Mal laments that he'll never live his past mistakes down. His friends, now in a five-part band called the Mixel Dramas, say they've Forgiven him and cheer him up with a rehearsal of Better Than Ever. As they sing, the five bandmates gain Mixel bodies, wings and tails which disappear when they stop playing. Magnifo and Krader express disbelief at the strange transformations, but Gobba cares little, letting his band leader egotism show.
Rose Rock comes in having heard the band's playing from outside the room, and compliments their sound. When Duncan criticizes Magnifo and Krader's playing, they give an annoyed look. Rose asks if any friends from out of town will be coming to the showcase. The Mixel Dramas tell Rose they're not sure if Flain will be present and Rose awkwardly excuses herself. Zoey is amused by Rose's behaviour, nothing that she has a crush on Flain, but he stops himself when he remembers that she and Mal used to date. Mal admits that he never liked Rose romantically and only used her to become popular. He then further regrets his past actions. As Krader cheers him up, a speaker announcement by Vice Principal Zhuqiaomon summons Mal to the school foyer. Mal leaves the room, having promised to give a tour to some new students and the Mixel Dramas go back to rehearsing. Lunk asks if they can sing a song he wrote. to which Krader replies that they'll get to it later.
Enter the Starrings
At the school entrance, Mal meets with the new guys - Scar, Frollo, and Ratcliffe - and shows them around the school - and shows them around the school. During the tour, they pass by a flyer for Canterlot High's musical showcase; Mal talks about the event, and the guys are intrigued, with Ratcliffe nearly revealing their true nature. When Mal notices the three's gem necklaces and reaches for Scar's, Scar grabs Mal's wrist in sudden offense. Scar catches himself and apologizes, explaining that their pendants mean a lot to them and they don't want anything to happen to them. The three guys walk off, leaving Mal to ponder their strange behavior.
Later in the cafeteria, Mal join his friends and mentions that there is something "off" about the new guys, worrying that they know about the events of the Fall Formal. Outside the cafeteria doors, Scar, Frollo and Ratcliffe have a brief argument before they enter. With their beguiling voices and a rousing song, the guys convince the students of Canterlot High to turn the musical showcase into an all-out Battle of the Bands. As they sing, tensions rise among the students, causing them to argue. As each vows victory in the competition, blue mist forms around them, which Scar, Frollo, and Ratcliffe absorb into their pendants. Only Mal and his friends are unaffected by the song.
A mesmerized school (FMR&RA)
Mal and the Mixel Dramas suspect that Scar, Frollo, and Ratcliffe are using dark magic on the students and go to alert the principals. However, Azulongmon and Zhuqiaomon believe the guys, now calling themselves the Starrings, are innocent and even praise them for their Battle of the Bands idea. For a brief moment, the principals' eyes glow blue, indicating that they have also fallen under the Starrings' spell.
The Mixel Dramas deduce that the magic that causes them to transform while playing music also makes them immune to the Starrings' spell. With the rest of the school under the Starrings' control, the friends consider getting Prince Flain to return and help. The closed portal prevents him from returning, but Mal has an idea. In his locker, he finds an old book with his blue moon symbol on the cover and explains that he used it to write messages to Princess Anna, which would appear in a book in Anna's Library. Hoping to get a message to Prince Flain, Mal opens the book and begins to write, starting with three words he hadn't written in a long time...
- "Dear Princess Anna..."
- — Mal
Back on Planet Mixel
In Planet Mixel, At Mixopolis, Flain and his friends lounge about in the throne room when a stallion arrives with a delivery of books from Princess Anna. One of the books, with Anna's cutie mark on the cover, appears to glow and vibrate. Flain opens it and discovers Mal's call for help.
Flain determines from Mal's warning that the Starrings are actually Legendary Sirens. Long ago, the sirens used their eerie songs to turn mixels against one another and fed on the negative energy from their anger, hatred and distrust, which made them powerful enough to control minds. But before they could conquer Planet Mixel with their magic, Star Swirl the Bearded banished them to another world—the world where Mal now lives with the human counterparts of Flain's Mixel friends.
Flain wishes to go and help his human friends, but the Crystal Mirror's closure prevents him from doing so. Zaptor proposes that the same magic that allows Mal to send messages from the human world to Planet Mixel should allow the portal to be opened. With a bunch of mechanical parts, and using the book as a battery, Flain is able to energize and reopen the portal. His friends want to accompany him, but Flain tells them they can't because it would be confusing to have two copies of his friends in the same place. Vulk, Zorch and Mike can still go along, however, and they and Flain charge into the portal.
Return to Canterlot High (FMHA)
Back at the school, Duncan starts to lose hope that Flain will come.when Flain, Vulk, Zorch and Mike suddenly shoot out of the portal. Mal offers to help Flain up, and he is at first a bit hesitant, but Flain quickly accepts. His human friends then meet him in a group hug. Later at the Bakery, the friends all catch up, with Vulk, Zorch and Mike revealing Flain's new status as the Prince of Friendship, Once Flain learns of what they're up against, he comes up with a plan to ambush the Starrings at the pre-Battle of theBands party being held in the school gym.
At the band meet up, Flain bumps into Rose Rock and stammers in her presence. One the Starrings arrive, Flain and his Friends declare their evil plans finished and attempt to stop them with a magic of friendship attack. However, nothing happens, allowing the Starrings to feed on even more of the competitors' negativity. Having humiliated themselves, Flain and his friends excuse themselves, but the Starrings decide to keep an eye on them, calling them "special".
Flain and the other guys regroup outside the school and try to figure out what went wrong. They reason that, since they can only channel their magic when playing music, only a counter-spell in the form of a song will break the Starrings' spell, making the Battle of the Bands the perfect venue. They also decide Flain should be the Mixel Dramas' new lead singer, much to Gobba's chagrin. Before Flain retires to the school library like he did during his last visit to Canterlot High, Zaptor proposes a slumber party at his house.
That evening, as his friends enjoy themselves around him, Flain has considerable difficulty writing a counter-spell. Later, after everyone falls asleep, he works on it in the kitchen and is soon joined by Mal. As the two bond over the similar problems they each face, Mal startled when Maud Pie comes in to get a snack for Boulder (her pet rock).
"I still can't get over the fact that she's related to Pinkie Pie."
The next day, the Mixel Dramas practice their musical counter-spell in the barn next to Krader's house. Unfortunately, Flain's singing is so off-key that Glomp only manages a small bit of transformation. Before long, hostility continues to grow between the Mixel Dramas regarding Magnifo's costumes and Krader's insisting that the band is his. With the Battle of the Bands starting soon, the Mixel Dramas soon agree to perform other songs and stall for time until Flain can complete his power. In addition, they decide to keep their magic a secret from the Starrings for as long as possible.
The Mane Event (FMRARA)
The Battle of the Bands gets underway, with Scott and Alejandro performing a hip-hop duet that earns only confused looks from the audience and reprimanding from Principal Azulongmon when they drop the microphones. When the time comes for the Mixel Dramas to perform, Magnifo takes the stage in a hippie-inspired outfit with metal fringes. During their performance of Shake Your Tail, other competitors try to sabotage them: Rika Nonaka, Renamon and Ranamon manipulate Magnifo's movement with a magnet, and Scott and Alejandro take advantage of Lunk's stage fright by holding a spotlight over him. The Mixel Dramas manage to advance to the next round, but they continue to squabble over petty issues.
Later, even Rose Rock starts to show hostility toward Flain, considering him to be an enemy because he is on a rivaling band. As they part ways, a distressed Flain walks away. At the other end of the hallway, Mal confronts the Starrings about their evil schemes, but the Starrings play to Mal's fragile emotions and make his feel useless in his friends' eyes.
In the following montage set to the Starrings' Under Our Spell, competing bands are eliminated one by one, from the Crusaders to Bulk Biceps to Lyra Heartstrings and Sweetie Drops to even Rose Rock. In the semifinals, the Mixel Dramas face Jacques, Josee and the Ice Skaters to decide who faces the Starrings in the final round.
As Jacques, Josee and their band perform Tricks Up Our Sleeves, Flain still has yet to finish his counter-spell song, so Gobba takes over as lead singer and the Mixel Dramas perform Awesome As I Wanna Be. However, Gobba gets carried away and starts to transform, prompting Mal to leap in and cut the song short. The crowd is convinced that Mal hasn't changed, adding more fuel to the fire of hatred for the Starrings to feed on.
Jacques' and Josee's dirty tricks
Through the Starrings' manipulation of the principals, the Mixel Dramas advance to the final round instead of the Ice Skaters. An embittered Jacques and Josee is later approached by Scar and given the idea of removing the Mixel Dramas from the competition so the Ice Skaters can take their place in the finals.
During the Mixel Dramas' mic check on the stage where the finals are to take place, Jacques, Josee and the Ice Skaters arrive to carry out their plan: a lever opens a trap door on the stage, and the Mixel Dramas fall inside. Vulk, Zorch and Mike, the only three not to become trapped, rushes off to find help.
That night, the Ice Skaters perform in the finals following the Mixel Dramas' supposed forfeit. Afterward, the Starrings take the stage for their final performance and continue feeding off the crowd. Below the stage, tempers and tensions finally boil over between the Mixel Dramas and a twenty-four argument breaks out, allowing the Starrings on stage to feed on their hatred.
Mal notices what's happening and finally intervenes, pointing out that their arguing has warped the Magic of Friendship into something that the Starrings can feed on. Flain is ashamed that he hadn't realized it sooner, and Mal tells him no one is supposed to have all the answers, but friends can help you find them. The Mixel Dramas thus make amends and finally come to a compromise, and Vulk, Zorch and Mike arrive to rescue them with the help of DJ Pon-3, whose headphones shielded her from the Starrings' spell.
Welcome to the Show (FMR&RA)
The Starrings continue feeding on the crowd on stage and transform, giving them mixel ears, tails, and translucent wings. As the Mixel Dramas watch from atop a hill, wondering how their song can reach the crowd, DJ Pon-3 arrives with further assistance: a car that converts into a DJ station. The Mixel Dramas start to play their counter-spell song over the Starrings' song and take on half-mixel forms with colors similar to that of the Ultra Miximum Max. Refusing to be stopped, the Starrings summon astral versions of their true siren forms and manage to overpower the Mixel Dramas.
As the Mixel Dramas fall, Flain's microphone rolls next to Mal's feet, and Flain says they need his help. Mal finds new resolve and starts to sing. Before long, the rest of the Mixel Dramas join him, and their combined magic creates a rainbow shockwave that weakens the Starrings and severs their spell over everyone, much to Scar's disbelief. The magic of friendship builds inside Mal, granting him a half-mixel form of her own. All the students then join in, and as the Starrings look on in shock and horror, the magic coalescing in the sky takes the form of a giant Ultra Miximum Max that destroys their astral projections as well as their gem pendants.
With their power sources destroyed, the Starrings are unable to even sing and re-cast their spell. The enraged students boo, jeer, and pelt them with fruits and vegetables, forcing them to flee in shame and disgrace. Rose, now free of the Starrings' influence, meets Flain in a happy and warm embrace. However, Jacques and Josee still upset about their competition loss, makes it clear they aren't done with the Mixel Dramas yet. As for Mal, with Flain now having to return home to Planet Mixel, Gobba allows Mal to join the band in Flain's stead—especially after Mal reveals he can play the guitar.
Before Flain leaves, he promises to visit whenever he can now that the portal can be opened at any time. Later, as the guys tune up their instruments, Mal uses his old journal to write the friendship lesson he learned to Flain, ending it with the closing statement: "Your friend, Mal."
As the film closes, Mal picks up his guitar and joins his bandmates in a performance of Shine Like Rainbows. During the credits, Mal is seen having now been accepted by the rest of the school, as Peppa, Suzy and Rebbeca help him with his books and walk with him and Bulk Biceps helps him get Mudkip down from a hard-to-reach perch.
Epilogue: The other Flain
In a post-credits scene, the human world's version of Flain is seen documenting strange events that are all connected to Canterlot High. He confides in his friends Mike, Vulk and Zorch that "something strange [is] going on at that school..."
