After learning that her friends, as well as herself, are the magical Elements of Harmony, studious unicorn Twilight Sparkle is sent by her mentor, Princess Celestia, to Ponyville to study the magic of friendship with help from her friends.
The character of Princess Celestia was originally supposed to be Queen Celestia, but Hasbro executives decided against the title of Queen since Disney had started the trend of animated Queens always being villains (excluding Elsa from Frozen).
