Queen by fyre-flye Queen by fyre-flye
A very early design of Princess Celestia for the 2008 MLP:FiM pitch bible. Back then she was a full-fledged Queen.

Ummm... Just a little question, how come there is now only princesses and princes for actual rulers now? The only Kings and queens there in the entire thing now are Queen Chrysalis and King Sombra, their both villains.

In most fairytales, the one whom is evil is a king or queen. That's why they changed Celestia to a princess. She was originally supposed to be queen, but the term made her seem evil.

Well, I guess so... I just think that the fact that only 'bad guys' are kings and queens is a bit stereotypical. Oh well.

I actually question that fact, why they didn't make her a full-fledged queen when no one out ranks her. It can't be the "kids think queens are evil"cliché.

Dear Lauren Faust,

I Wanted to ask you if you hate the idea of princess cadance and princess twilight,
im asking this because you said that twilight would become celestia's (a queen/princess) sucessor,
but not an alicorn or a princess, hope you awnser :)

Kindly, Davi.

I really wish you had fought those evil executives and made her a queen in the final version. Because maybe you could have CHANGED the whole "evil queen" stereotype that they claimed girls believe.

I'm not actually expecting you to reply, though.

Well at least she stopped them from making Celestia pink. That would have been bad.

In the Riseverse, the reason none of the alicorns go by the title of "queen" is because they have subconcious memories of Nostalgia Critic's rants against fatherless princesses who keep the "princess" title, and thus the Alicorns willingly assume the title of "queen" because they associate the title of "queen" with the old universe, and therefore with Linkara.

I still think she would have been much better if she were queen. It makes more sense. But at the same time I understand why she was changed into a princess.

Her title was actually named princess... Because children are seeing queens are bad and princesses are good...

i really wish that hasbro did make celestia queen. it would make more sense and it would break the stereotype of queens being evil. not all queens are bad. some of them are strong, independent, responsible and loyal to their people. It would have sent a much stronger message of feminism to young girls instead of a cute innocent princess.

My little pony universe is a dark and brutal and horrible place, that is if you are a sentient cow or a sentient sheep, for those races are enslaved and used as farm animals, their babies are taken away from them and used to feed the blood thirsty pony slavers and their carnivorous pets, thus turning murder and rape and slavery into a very unique and magical features of My Little Pony universe - www.youtube.com/watch?v=I4vS7Y…

I've always prefered the style of pencil sketches and for an early design, that's spot on. I'm just now seeing all the other one's and they look almost unchanged. I guess you really know what you want from the start. That's an amazing gift to have and I would love to have that kind of confidence, but then you have been practicing everyday. I also love you nailed the one-shot execution of the finer details, I know for one thing, repeating symmetry on mandalas is not easy.
I would love to see an animatic of the storyboards, with commentary and even a side by side comparison of the finished work. That would be fun to watch.

Law of monarchic heredictarity would mean the younger sister would be called Princess, and assuming no direct heirs of the queen, she'd be crowned queen in the case of assassination Accident.

and in the case of a direct heir, she would reagent for them if they were too young to rule. 

sadly "queen" means you are EVIL. :v

This looks beautiful! I love your designs for, pretty much everything you've done! When you said, "Back then she was a full-fledged queen", do you mean after she banished Princess Luna/Nightmare Moon?

My guess is that it means back when they were designing Celestia originally
Since Queens are usually the antagonists in quite a few things they may have just changed her to a princess just to make her seem a bit nicer. Little girls would probably rather be a princess because of queens being portrayed as villians as well, at least from what I've seen from my younger sister.

Wow! How u did celestia was absolutely AMAZING! Great job on the necklace and the crown! You did them with beautiful details :D so, this is the early celestia right? I mean, she's so beautifully detailed by a great artist named Lauren Faust! ^^ I can't even draw celestia properly with such wonderful details added to this art... You must be exhausted after drawing her? Or it's just a sketch? Anyways, nice art! Hopefully Season 5 is gonna be a successful season with lots of mysteries, adventures and friendships I can learn to make me a better person!

With all due respect, Mrs. Faust, I do not really see the difference.

Mrs. Faust, while I am aware that you no longer work on the show, could you possibly tell us if a species swap episode (unicorn, Pegasus, earth pony) with the Mane Six is planned for season 5?

I also ask that any spoil sports that want to comment on how unlikely to impossible it would be that Mrs. Faust would actually reply, to please refrain from doing so.
