Those were the old plans for G5. Twilight would have been an earth pony, Pinkie a pegasus, Fluttershy a unicorn. The others the same but with different designs. Rainbow Dash the closest to being the same, Applejack the most different. But they decided not to use those plans and instead have this be a continuation of G4.

she must be a big fan of Twilight and the other, she must be like Twilight a smart one and be a real fangirl like Twilight is of Celestia and Star swirl!

The general idea still stands that as time goes by situations also change. Things can't possibly stay peaceful forever and without supervision it could get worse and worse. Then the tribal divide eventually returns. It also doesn't mean Twilight failed. Maybe her efforts were in vain but she definitely didn't fail.

@ma3a
Exactly, the citizens of Equestria should also take some blame for this one.

@TheRocketMan
is it really surprising when you consider all these tensions were bubbling just beneath the surface. after all in the episode where Tirek, Cozy Glow, and Chrysalis sneak into canterlot to steal some artifact Chrysalis and Cozy glow were able to QUITE EASILY cause a rift between the unicorns and pegasi (if i remember the pony types correctly). so perhaps some corrupt/manipulative ruler came to power after twilight's reign ended and catalyzed a racial divide for their own political gain much like trump was doing.

Aang didn't fail as an Avatar because the show's universe didn't go back to square one. Even with the conflicts Korra faced, Aang's accomplishments aren't voided. The world is still fairly united and at peace.

Twilight failed to keep peace between ponies and other creatures and the show's universe went back to square one. Her accomplishments ultimately mean nothing. Using the passage of time as an excuse to retcon everything is a lazy plot device.

@TheRocketMan
Gonna use Avatar example again. In Legend of Korra, sometimes chaos still reigns and peace isn't always restored, but does that mean Aang failed as an Avatar? No. So many new people and incidents happened that Aang couldn't possibly expect. Things always change through time and nothing will stay the same. There will always be things our heroes cannot control. That doesn't mean they failed and everything they built is in vain.

@northern haste
This isn't the comparison you're looking for. Twilight was handed responsibility over keeping peace and harmony over the land. By this description, she actively failed as everyone went back to the pre-Equestria times of hating each other and living in separation.

This sounds like a Legend of Korra situation where everything the heroes of the previous generation have built so well crumpled because of time and imperfection. It's up to the newer generation to reawake the peace of the world again.

It is definitely sad to see Equestria regresses back to its species divided age but it's not like that didn't happen in the previous gen.

In the new movie, the pony world of Equestria has lost its magic. Friendship and Harmony have been replaced by paranoia and mistrust, and Ponies now live separated by species. Sunny — a feisty and idealistic young Earth Pony — is convinced there’s still hope for this divided world, but her slightly misguided and often hilarious efforts to change hearts and minds have led to her being branded a misfit. When Sunny befriends a lost Unicorn named Izzy, who wanders innocently into the Earth Pony town of Maretime Bay, the town has had enough. Izzy and Sunny must embark on an epic adventure that will include a daring jewel heist, outrageous conspiracy theories, elaborate musical numbers, and the world’s cutest flying Pomeranian. Their adventures will take them to faraway lands and force them to challenge the status quo by facing their fears and making new friends out of old enemies. The world Sunny has dreamed of her entire life could finally become a reality as Sunny and her newfound friends fight to prove that even little ponies can make a big difference.
