Description:

Again, this does not mean EG is not canon ^cause it obviously is… (Nick already been through long Twitter threads explaining the canon status of EG)  
They don’t want to alienate FiM viewers that didn’t/haven’t watched EG.  
I honestly don’t mind. EG will continue beyond FiM anyway and if they do more crossovers with FiM, it’d be more suitable in EG.

They already alienated them PLUS a key member of the staff.Still good news we wont see Sunset Whatever around FIM.That slightly sweeten the deal….barely

EQG is about aping Monster High in the most creatively bankrupt and lazy way despite the franchise being called My Little PONY and driving Faust away in the process (which was kinda a key factor to FIM success overall,note that i said A key factor,not THE key factor)fixed that for you  
@Background Pony #7A48  
The Movie respecting the franchise and being about ponies mostly,you know the thing the show is named after

I doubt they’re going to explore the Celestia/Sunset dynamic. Not like they even cared about that, it was pretty much barebones and in the special it came out of blue. I believe FF was all you’re going to get me thinks.

I’d love to see Sunset cameo in an official episode, maybe not for long or be an important part of the story.  
I’ve always imagined Sunset and Celestia being seen in a background of an episode that doesn’t have to do with them, but it will show that an episode and a short / special from Equestria Girls takes place at the same time.

Sunset wont be appearing in the show, full stop. I dont know why people even got that idea, she was never meant to be a FiM character. Ive even seen people who seriously thought she waa going to be a permenant addition to the show

I think they also don’t want to shove EQG down people’s throat if they don’t want anything to do with it but like FIM.
 
Also it’s better for immersion because let’s not kid ourselves EQG’s story makes absolutely no sense and that means that everytime there is a connection to it FIM’s story will also make no sense either which takes away from the show’s immersion and similar aspects like lore.

Near as I understand it, Friendship is Magic is canon to Equestria Girls but EGs is not canon to FIM. FIM doesn’t need equestria girls to work but EGs does.

Forgotten Friendship was anything but boring, and EqG has always been about fantasy elements contrasting with an otherwise standard human world.  
But I’m sure you don’t actually watch it and just want to shitpost.

So the takeaway here is that Sunset won’t appear in FiM, nor will anything from EG directly affect FiM?
Well, what do you know? I’ve been right all along.
 
Yeah about that.
 

 
The real takeaway is “We ain’t gonna sacrifice plot understandability for a quick nod, but that doesn’t mean there will never be any connections.”

Goddamn do I love Nick more everyday. Everyone else has been squeamish on giving straight answers when it comes to the EU, but here this guy is making tweets saying “It’s all connected, but we gotta prioritize coherency first.”

Im glad this issue can finally be put to rest. Nick is at least honest about it unlike Meghan who always was cryptid when the question aboit Sunset on the show came up.

But if they’re trying to make things accessible to people who only watch the show then why draw heavily from something that isn’t the show? It seems contradictory to the reason he gives.
