I remember that I had posted two questions regarding alternate settings for the Equestria Girls movies, one in mediaeval Japan, and the other in ancient Greece: https://mlpforums.com/topic/101933-what-would-equestria-girls-be-like-if-no-high-school-but-kabuki-setting/ https://mlpforums.com/topic/147240-if-friendship-games-were-set-in-ancient-greece-how-would-it-be-different/ So, if you directed the Equestria Girls movies, what kind of setting would you use for the "mirror Equestria", instead of that cliche high school setting? Would it be from a historical era, or a futuristic Equestria (as an antithesis for the magical fantasy Equestria), or something else?
I was thinking of my pink-haired character's folk plays when I thought of this. Seeing that most people don't like high school dramas (and their clichés), why not turn "Equestria Girls" into a Japanese Kabuki setting? Here are some questions: * What events will happen, based on usual Kabuki plays? Swordfights and pitch-ridden monologues, after Twily crosses the gate to the Human-Land? * What will the characters be? E.g. Twily might be a warrior, Sunset her rival, and Celestia can be am empress/noblewoman.
* "minorities from modernized countries that resemble stock medieval fantasy nations" * "despite being modernized the people from these countries act and somewhat think like as if they were sent from the medieval era into the modern day and adapting into modern life" * E. g. a girl from a kingdom who remembers stories from her native country that resembles some medieval folk tales and legends * Despite having understanding of modern science, practicing modern hygiene, and living as modern people, their daily behaviour and thinking is very medieval, i.e. "backwards". They are also notoriously intolerant of other races and beliefs, preferring to force them into their own beliefs, causing them to land into trouble or adaption in other countries. * On the other hand, their legends and folktales (now dismissed as superstition or fiction) inspires them to do good works. What so you think?
