Why does candybutt and fullmoon get more character development than celestia?

Anonymous 481344

I guess Celestia is meant to remain the mysterious mentor figure, which might explain why they're slightly hesitant about giving her too much character development. And Luna and Cadence aren't getting much character development, either. But it's still more than Celestia is getting. She does get some character development in some of the comics, which I like. But whether you consider the comics canon or not is a contentious issue.

They are probably leaving it open for character developement later on. Also, there is now multiple background stories that she was a part of so itd be kinda difficult to write around a previous story

Like in S4:1+2 they had to fit discord into the history and tie in his story with celestia and lunas background that was previously stated in the first discord episode

You could also consider the fact that celestia is a guiding figure and a positive symbol. Adding too much story will distract the veiwer from that aspect of her (this is a problem with some of the mane 6)

Or they got burned with the last three and they're not touching it.

Remember, her official name is Sweetie Drops.

Actually, since Twilight's a princess and Celestia said she's no longer her student, wouldn't that count as character regression?
