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.

Celestia & Luna can only be princesses when Queen Fausticorn is still regarded by all as on the throne.

seeing that Celestia was *this close* to being a queen instead of a princess, I'd love to see more good queens instead of evil. sure it IS an oldie but a goodie, but it is still what has been put into media time and time again; making it as stale as old popcorn. so I think it would be a good idea to increase protagonist queens as it would give media a fresh look for the audience; young and old. but at least there are some revolutionaries like Queen Uberta from 'The Swan Princess' and Queen Elsa from the ever-so-famous 'Frozen'; so the more the merrier! ;) (Wink)

true. Disney RUINED queens with their stupid marketing spell. Literally, it was like a spell. Any Disney Princess fan would think of a queen as "evil", no matter how hard they tried to think otherwise. Lauren, I feel for you having to be "forced" by Disney to name this beloved character "Princess" Celestia, even though by official monarchy standards it is inaccurate. But the name's good anyways :) (Smile)

I honestly think it would've been better if Celestia and Luna was queens, not princesses, on that note, Cadence should've become Empress after taking controll over the Crystal empire, but i know neither was your decision

And that is hypocritical on Hasbro's part because there were queens before in the franchise, also portrayed as GOOD (not evil) protagonists... G1 Majesty, which I guess Celestia was based on, was a QUEEN, even though she never appeared in the original series (she appeared in the comics)... though she did seem to be psychopathic in her comic and story appearances...

G1 Rosedust is a queen too, and also a nice pony... this evil queen thing was around even then, but Hasbro didn't stop them to say that "princess market better because they're good."

But that must have changed now...

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.

The whole thing is also hypocritical on Hasbro's part since, back in G1, there were GOOD (not evil) queens, and yet this stereotype was present back then. Majesty was a main character in the comics and stories (though never appeared in the series, despite being planned to), AND was a QUEEN who was PROTAGONIST. Rosedust, the QUEEN of the Flutter Ponies, was also a good character...

They could have changed them into princesses... but I guess they thought it was cool back then... Okay, okay, maybe it's because of time and new people leading MLP, but still... they had queens before...

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.
