Twilight Sparkle's Retro Media Library

A mini-series based on My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic that take place during the past events of The Last Problem, titled Friendship is Forever, was produced in 2019. In this mini-series, Twilight's friends collect all the memories she's had with them and make a book for her out of the memories. There are a total of six episodes.

It is unknown if the clip shows will ever be released in North America, as they still haven't done so even after the presence of My Little Pony: A New Generation on Netflix.[1]


A few days before Twilight Sparkle gets prepared for her coronation as the new ruler of Equestria, Spike and Starlight make a magical scrapbook and ask each of Twilight's friends to add memories inside.

First, Rarity's memories include events from episodes like A Dog and Pony Show, The Return of Harmony, Rarity Takes Manehattan, Rarity Investigates!, The Saddle Row Review, and Best Gift Ever.

Next, Pinkie Pie adds in her memories from episodes like Feeling Pinkie Keen, Baby Cakes, A Friend in Deed, Too Many Pinkie Pies, Party Pooped, and The Last Laugh.

Fluttershy's memories come next, from episodes like Stare Master, Hearth's Warming Eve, Keep Calm and Flutter On, Filli Vanilli, The Hooffields and McColts, and A Health of Information.

After that, Rainbow Dash chips in her memories from episodes like Sonic Rainboom, Read It and Weep, Rainbow Falls, Tanks for the Memories, Applejack's "Day" Off, and 2, 4, 6, Greaaat.

Then Applejack adds her memories from episodes like Winter Wrap Up, Apple Family Reunion, Somepony to Watch Over Me, Made in Manehattan, Where the Apple Lies, and Sounds of Silence.

Finally, Starlight Glimmer and Spike add memories for Twilight, Celestia, Luna, and of course, themselves as well, from episodes like The Cutie Mark Chronicles, Luna Eclipsed, The Cutie Map, The Cutie Re-Mark, Celestial Advice, and Father Knows Beast. By the day before Twilight's coronation, the memory book is done.

The next morning, on the day of the coronation, just as Starlight is about to give Twilight her present, she and her friends just race past her to catch the train to Canterlot, so Starlight decides to give the book after the coronation instead.

A few minutes following Celestia and Luna's departure to Silver Shoals, Twilight and her friends look inside her memory book. Then she realizes there's one problem with it: it comes to an end. As they make new memories all the time, the book can never be finished, and they'll have to get started on volume 2. Still, Twilight is grateful for all the memories she's had with her friends, and can't wait to make more.
