Depiction in the specials

Equestria Girls: Movie Magic

Juniper first appears in the second special Movie Magic meeting Twilight Sparkle and Rainbow Dash on the set of the new Daring Do movie. She introduces herself as the niece of the film's director Canter Zoom as well as his personal gofer, often tasked with getting him coffee and preparing film shoots. She is also the keeper of the keys to every area in the movie studio. Being a big fan of the Daring Do series, Juniper wanted her uncle to cast her as Daring in the movie, but he passed her over in favor of star actress Chestnut Magnifico.

When a number of mishaps occur around the studio, such as the sabotage of a volcano set and the theft of several important movie props, Juniper is revealed to be the culprit responsible. She admits that she did these out of bitterness over not being cast as Daring Do and her resentment toward Chestnut Magnifico. She had hoped that if enough delays occurred, Chestnut would quit and her uncle would give her a chance to be Daring Do in the movie. While she is forgiven by her uncle, Juniper gets banned from the studio. As she is escorted off the set by studio security, she looks back at the Mane 7 with malice.

Equestria Girls: Mirror Magic

Sometime after the events of Movie Magic, Juniper has a job at the Canterlot Mall as a movie theater usher. Though her uncle got her the job out of pity, she is very unsatisfied with the menial position and resentful toward the Mane 7 for ruining her chances of becoming famous. While trying on sunglasses at a mall kiosk, Juniper looks in a hand mirror enchanted with Equestrian magic and sees her idealized self as a famous movie star. She buys the mirror and becomes obsessed with it to the point of vanity.

While cleaning up popcorn, Juniper discovers that the mirror can make things disappear. When the Mane 7 appear before her, she vents her frustrations at them for ruining her life and makes them disappear as well. Later on, when confronted by Sunset Shimmer, Juniper makes her vanish as well. With the girls trapped together in limbo, the power of their geodes activates more of the mirror's magic and transforms Juniper into a giant monstrous version of her fantasy self.

Once transformed, Juniper becomes so disillusioned that she believes the people she's terrorizing are adoring fans and paparazzi. Starlight Glimmer attempts to reason with Juniper, but she refuses to listen. When Starlight offers Juniper friendship instead of fame, Juniper undoes all the magic that the mirror created, freeing the Mane 7 from their prison and turning herself back to normal. Juniper apologizes to the girls for her actions, and they forgive and accept her as their new friend.

Other depictions

Storybooks

Juniper appears in the novelization of the specials, Magic, Magic Everywhere!, her role essentially unchanged from the specials. However, the novel describes her as having freckles, which she does not have in animated form.

Equestria Girls Minis

In the two-part Equestria Girls Minis short "The Show Must Go On", Juniper appears in a mischievous role, sabotaging the Mane Seven's movie premiere evening.[1][2]

Merchandise

An Equestria Girls Minis doll of Juniper Montage is included with the My Little Pony Equestria Girls Minis Movie Theater Playset. The playset's description says of Juniper, "Imagine the JUNIPER MONTAGE figure is the film expert who’s spearheading the theater."[3]

Personality

When first introduced, Juniper is portrayed as very friendly and innocent. Like Twilight Sparkle and Rainbow Dash, she is a huge fan of A. K. Yearling, having met her once and gotten her to sign her copy of the latest Daring Do book. She also appears to be a big movie enthusiast, having worked on the sets for all of her uncle's movies and evidenced by her film reel-shaped hairpins.

However, toward the end of Movie Magic and in Mirror Magic, Juniper's true colors come to light. Her desire to be cast as Daring Do and become a famous movie star is so strong that she is willing to sabotage the production of a film. When her dreams are not realized, she lashes out to those responsible, demonstrated when she uses a magic hand mirror to trap Sunset Shimmer with her friends in limbo. Juniper also shows considerable indifference for her job as a theater usher, willfully ignoring her boss and groaning over any tasks given to her.

In her transformed state, Juniper's views on the world become warped to the point where she perceives screaming people as adoring fans. However, she does express deep remorse at the ends of Movie Magic and Mirror Magic, her actions stemming from a desire to be liked by others.

Juniper's favorite food is Bon Mot peanut butter praline crunch bars, which are also Chestnut Magnifico's favorite snack.
