What Happened to Equestira?

Wanderin Jim is reader of comics, novels, a player of many video games and a watcher of many shows and he has some opinions to share.

To Start

In September 2021 My Little Pony a new Generation released on netflix, and it gave us allot to think about. It should be noted this movie takes place in the same universe as G4. So, what happened to Twilight Sparkle and her friends? Where is Princess Celestia, Luna and Cadence and for that matter where is Discord? Unfortunately, we are not given any answers in the movie, but we can theorize and rule out some possibilities. To start I am going to list some other theories I have thought of or heard of and then break down what is wrong or what works. With that said, set back, relax have a cold one, and let's talk some My Little Pony theories.

They Simply got old.

I'm old dang nabbit!

I'm old dang nabbit!

One simple theory is that everybody we knew and loved in MLP: FIM simply grew old and died, perhaps Twilight Couldn't find a worthy successor to the throne and without guidance the world plunged into a state of distrust among the races.

I's a simple theory but it's really not bad, it explains their absence and would certainly allow the world to wind up in a very different state than what we knew from it previously. It's a good theory if not for six big problems.

The Immortals

I'm old too, but you don't see me complaining.

I'm old too, but you don't see me complaining.

Based on Celestia who 1000 years is at least probably more like 2000, it's safe to assume that all alicorns are immortal and if they aren't Discord most certainly is. I suppose they all could have killed by some kind of outside force like Grogar or something but, if MLP: FIM as taught is anything besides the value of friendship is that these candy-colored ponies are freaking hard to kill, so it seems unlikely. Even if Twilight was having some problems Celestia could and would simply comeback to ether offer advise heck even Discord would probably try to help if it was important to Fluttershy and it would be,

For that matter, writers of the show have stated that Twilight sprakles friends Rarity, Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash, AppleJack, Pinkie Pie and Spike have all been exposed to allot of different kinds of magic through their adventures together, and that there is no telling just how long they might live, I personally believe they will always be together.

Another Adventure


This seems like the most likely thing to me. Something came up like Grogar for example, and Twilight needed everyone to help her deal with him and they have yet to back perhaps there was some dimensional travel or time stuff, but they are gone. But before leaving, Twilight preformed a powerful spell allowing the sun and moon to operate independently in her absence perhaps she even trusted everyone to get along while she was away.

We don't know


I don't think Twilight Sparkle would ever just leave the kingdom without leaving someone to watch over it, but perhaps they were gone longer than expected and perhaps Celestia and Luna were needed help, Discord may have followed them just to help keep Fluttershy safe.

It still has problems like what about Cadence and the crystal empire or Flurryheart? what could be so big that Twilight and all of her companions would be gone for so long, Grogar perhaps? Since the mystery was intentionally left unanswered, we only have our imaginations to paint a picture however bright or dark.

Twilight Sparkle has dealt with time Travel before, perhaps one day we the Mane 6 will meet the Mane 5 of today! In the Manga written by David Lumsdon, Twilight and all her friends dealt with alternative dimensions and Equestria Girls is all about a alternate dimension, so anything is possible.

The Gaurdians of Friendship


I have fallen in love with these characters as well as their world, and I would like to think that whatever the answer is they are probably together, and it was a happy one answer. Sorry for the lack of theories, but hey, it takes allot to post and break down a theory perhaps I will make a part 2 when more theories come about. Of course, we are going to learn more once the new series starts. Until then, I hope you guys liked this article please share your thoughts and theories below, until next time I am Wanderin Jim and I hope you all have a super happy day.
