It was announced on February 13, 2020, with the video Meggy's Destiny - ANNOUNCEMENT TRAILER. Prior to the release of the film, the banner on SMG4's channel and Twitter was changed to promote the film. It premiered on YouTube February 29, 2020.
The movie starts off with Meggy trying to sleep, and explaining in her mind of what she had gone through and also how she ended up with Mario and the gang in the first place.
She first had a flashback in 2017, where everything was simple for her as an Inkling, where she had made a lot of Inkling friends and of course, trained with them. It was only that during training at Snapper Canal that she was accidentally caught in a paint can by unaware Piantas who were transporting paint to the Mushroom Kingdom, who placed her paint can in the basement of Peach's Castle. She would only be freed by a certain red man when he was finding paint for his castle renovation. After being freed, she became very thankful for the man for the so many adventures she had with him and his many friends, only to have a brief nightmarish flashback from last year, which included seeing her friend getting killed at the hands of a certain chameleon and also seeing herself being transformed into a human. After waking up from that, she implied that life was now rough as she is no longer an Inkling.
While the others were having a party over Meggy's victory in the final Splatfest, Meggy decided to sneak away to go to the rooftop. Just as she stared into the horizon, Desti's spirit appeared once again, now standing next to her. As if to indicate that she saw her as a true friend, the blindfold of scribbles was erased. Desti then adknowedleged her win of the final Splatfest competition and asked how she did it. Meggy reponsed saying it was her friends that let her win, but jokingly added it was completely fine if she didn't know what it meant. Desti laughed, understanding the intention and then asked what was Meggy's purpose now.
Meggy did not know what she meant, causing Desti show how for the past few months, she had been doing nothing but training for the Splatfest and being sad. She also indicated that just because it was fun to cry over her sadness, Desti also indicated that Meggy had to move on. Meggy acknowledged it, but stated that it was just too hard to do so. Desti, thinking about it, decided to hug Meggy, as a way of making it easier to do so, thanking her for keeping up the promise she made in SMG4: Final Hours. With those words, Meggy could finally say goodbye to her. Desti then smiled, before her spirit dissipated into light.
Meggy then turned around, when suddenly, Boopkins could be heard screaming as he was once again, going to have a tail pinned to his butt. The movie ends with Meggy hearing the noise and deciding to play "Pin the Boopkins" with the others instead of helping him be free.
