Okay, this is going to be done in script format. I'm probably massively wide of the mark but this is really what I want. The similarities to the trailer for the movie TomorrowLand are deliberate but cosmetic.

Live Action Interior of a brightly-lit concrete room

There are three rows of benches bolted to the floor and stern prison guards standing around, glaring at a small collection of scruffy, hopeless-looking teenagers sitting on the benches.

Guard

Megan Williams?

Megan is a thin, mournful-looking mid-teens girl with bright blue eyes and waist-length honey blonde hair in a messy ponytail. Her face is somewhat haggard and un made-up; she has five earrings in each ear, stretching up and over the top. She is wearing very worn denim jeans and a denim jacket over a dirty orange tee-shirt. She looks up.

New Shot - A waist-height counter runs across the room topped with a thick armoured glass partition extending up to ceiling level. There is an opening in the glass partition with a dour guard standing, looking out. Behind him we can see many racks of shelves.

Megan slowly and hopelessly walks up to the counter. The Guard shoves forwrads a collection of items.

Guard

Check to see if this is everything.

Megan begins to sort through a depressingly small collection of items, most of it old and worn, and begins to stuff it into a battered denim backpack with a Hello Kitty tag on the zip. It includes: a few comic books, a beat-up MLP-G1 lunchbox and thermos flask, a few sketchbooks/notebooks and a beat-up fabric pencil/pen case. Megan picks up a simple denim coin purse and counts out a few dollars in coins.

Guard

Sign here, Miss Williams

The Guard gestures at a prison discharge inventory form

Megan

Hey!

Guard

Try to avoid getting into trouble again, will ya?

Megan

Hey!

The Guard pauses. Megan gestures at a strange object on the counter; it looks like a golden locket but it has a heart-shaped red gem in the centre of a shape cast into its front shaped like a knight's shield.

Megan

This isn't mine; I'm not gonna be framed for stealing some rich dame's jewellery!

The Guard looks at the inventory list

Guard

It's on your list.

Megan

I'm telling you that this isn't mine!

The Guard shrugs

Guard

Whatever. If you don't want it, throw it in the trash; I don't care!

Megan makes an annoyed huffing sound and reaches out to touch the locket. As she does so...

Flash

Brief Animated Ext, A grassy field

The grass is rendered in blazingly bright shades of green under the bright sun in an impossibly blue sky... Megan's hand is suddenly a Flash animated asset...!

Flash

Back to Live action - Megan gasps and jerks back, her hand snapping back as if she were burnt. The locket loudly clatters to the floor beneath the counter.

Guard

Kid! Are you okay?

Megan

What was that?

Guard

What was what?

Megan

Didn't you see that? I was in a field out in the countryside! Everything was so bright...! I... i think I was... I was a cartoon?

The Guard sighs

Guard

Look, kid, if you want to flashback to your last acid trip, do it somewhere else. I've got things to do and you have been released, so we want you out of here!

Megan steps back, looking shaken and even a little panicked.

New Shot - Looking up from the floor as Megan looks down at the locket and drops down on one knee uncertainly. Hesitantly, she reaches out again as she touches the locket...

Flash

Animated Ext - A field in Equestria;

Sound F/X: Megan's breathing; fast, panicked. We watch from Megan's POV as she looks up from where her animated hand is touching the magically twinkling locket. In the distance is a mountain range with Canterlot Castle perched on the side of the tallest peak.

Twilight Sparkle (v/o)

Megan!

Flash

Back to Live action, looking up from the floor - Megan jerks her hand back with a little fearful 'peep' noise.

The girl tilts her head, smiling uncertainly. She's obviously still fearful but there is a dawning look of wonder in her eyes.

Guard

You alright kid? Kid? Kid, can you hear me? Do you want us to call an ambulance?

Megan ignores the Guard. She touches her fingers to her lips; she is clearly trying to resist a desire to start laughing hysterically.

Begin music - a slow piano-and-choral version of Friendship Through the Ages.

Twilight Sparkle (v/o)

It doesn't have to be this way.

Chrysalis stands, sneering at the camera, surrounded by scores of Changelings, some flying, some pawing the ground menacingly.

Twilight Sparkle (v/o)

Still looking up from the floor to Megan, who now looks awestruck.

Twilight Sparkle (v/o)

However, you must take the first step alone.

Megan's brows crease with a frown that slowly starts to change to a broad smile that makes her seem much younger and far happier than we've seen so far.

Guard

Kid! Kid! What's wrong with her?

Guard 2

Is it some kind of fit? The paramedics are coming...

Megan ignores all the commotion and reaches forward, her expression determined.

Cut to: Int - The floor of the release room

As the music reaches its final crescendo, Megan's hand reaching out to touch the locket. As she does so, the scene flows to animated outward from the point where her fingers make contact with the locket, leaving behind the locket sitting in the green grass of an animated field.

Megan's animated hand grasps the locket and pulls back out of the POV.

From Megan's POV, we watch her stand up. She looks up towards Canterlot and then slowly scans the horizon. Cloudsdale, an epic Greco-Roman construction of cloud and ice, passes through the field of view. Finally, Megan's eyes rest on Ponyville and the Castle of Friendship, shining in the background on the other side of the bridge over the river.

Twilight Sparkle (v/o)

Oh! Hello! I haven't seen you around here before!

Cut to: Ext - Field near Ponyville

Megan, rendered in Equestria Girls style, is beaming in happiness as she turns around, her hair sweeping dramatically around her.

The Mane Six are standing in a group much like the group photo in the opening titles of the show.
