Twilight Sparkle is a lonely princess living with her stepmother, a vain Princess Eris. The Peacock worries that Twilight Sparkle will be more beautiful than her, so she forces Twilight to work as a scullery maid and asks her Magic Mirror daily "who is the fairest one of all". For years the mirror always answers that the peacock is, pleasing her.

One day, the Magic Mirror informs the Queen that Twilight Sparkle is now "the fairest" in the land; on that same day, Twilight Sparkle  meets Shining Armor who overhears her singing. The jealous peacock orders Discord  to take Twilight into the forest and kill her. She further demands that the huntsman return with Twilight's heart in a jeweled box as proof of the deed. However, Discord cannot bring himself to kill Twilight Sparkle. He tearfully begs for her forgiveness, revealing the Peacock wants her dead and urges her to flee into the woods and never look back. Lost and frightened, the princess alicorn is befriended by woodland creatures who lead her to a cottage deep in the woods. Finding seven small chairs in the cottage's dining room, Twilight Sparkle assumes the cottage is the untidy home of seven orphaned children.

In reality, the cottage belongs to 9 ponies—named Rainbow Dash, Rarity, Pinkie Pie, Applejack, Fluttershy, Sunset Shimmer, Spike, Trixie Lulamoon, and Starlight Glimmer—who work in a nearby mine. Returning home, they are alarmed to find their cottage clean and suspect that an intruder has invaded their home. The friends find Twilight Sparkle upstairs, asleep across three of their beds. Snow White awakes to find the dwarfs at her bedside and introduces herself, and all of the dwarfs eventually welcome her into their home after she offers to clean and cook for them. Twilight Sparkle keeps house for the dwarfs while they mine for jewels during the day, and at night they all sing, play music and dance.

Meanwhile, the Peacock discovers that Twilight Sparkle is still alive when the mirror again answers that Snow White is the fairest in the land and reveals that the heart in the jeweled box is actually that jewel heart. Using a potion to disguise herself as Queen Chrysalis, the peacock creates a poisoned apple that will put whoever eats it into the "Sleeping Death", a curse she learns can only be broken by "love's first kiss", but is certain twilight Sparkle will be buried alive. While the peacock goes to the cottage while the dwarfs are away, the animals are wary of her and rush off to find the dwarfs. Faking a potential heart attack, the Peacock tricks Twilight Sparkle into bringing her into the cottage to rest. The peacock fools Twilight Sparkle into biting into the poisoned apple under the pretense that it is a magic apple that grants wishes. As Twilight Sparkle falls asleep, the Peacock proclaims that she is now the fairest of the land. The dwarfs return with the animals as the Queen leaves the cottage and give chase, trapping her on a cliff. She tries to roll a boulder over them, but before she can do so, lightning strikes the cliff, causing her to fall to her death.

The friends return to their cottage and find Twilight Sparkle seemingly dead, being kept in a deathlike slumber by the poison. Unwilling to bury her out of sight in the ground, they instead place her in a glass coffin trimmed with gold in a clearing in the forest. Together with the ponies, they keep watch over her. A year later, the princesses from the beginning of the movie learns of her eternal sleep and visits her coffin. Saddened by her apparent death, they use magic to revive her, which breaks the spell and awakens her. The friends and ponies all rejoice as the Princesses takes Twilight Sparkle to their castle.
