Princess Celestia is a major character in My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and the former co-ruler of Equestria along with her younger sister Princess Luna, both of whom were responsible for raising the sun and the moon. She was the mentor and idol of Twilight Sparkle, whom she addressed as her faithful student.
Over a millennium ago, Celestia and Luna discovered the Tree of Harmony and took the Elements from it to defeat Discord. Afterwards, Celestia had to use the Elements herself to fight Luna, who had become Nightmare Moon.
At the beginning of the series, Celestia was no longer linked to the Elements of Harmony so she sent Twilight to Ponyville so that she finds five ponies who could help stop Nightmare Moon. Once the Mane Six restored Luna to her true self, the two sisters were united once again.
She is voiced by Nicole Oliver, who also voiced Carlita, Delphine, Princess Ashlyn, Twyla, Dori, Queen Calissa, Lilliana Roxelle, Lady Anne, Sorceress of Castle Grayskull, Meilin Rae, and Zoe Trent. In video game, she is voiced by Marissa Lanti. In the Japanese dub from the series, she is voiced by Kikuko Inoue.
Celestia is beautiful and nice. She has a white coat and wings, her mane & tail is striped of pink, purple, aqua blue, & green with sparkles around, her eyes are light grayish-magenta she wears a golden crown with a purple gem on it, a golden necklace also with a purple gem on it, wears golden hoof shoes, and also has a sun based cutie mark.
Princess Celestia acts as a mentor to Twilight. She often does not directly state her goals but rather gives the advice to help her students find the answers they need. For example, she wrote a letter prompting Twilight to make best friends in Friendship is Magic, part 1 when her goal was for Twilight Sparkle to find the Elements of Harmony.
Despite being royalty, she often encourages her subjects to relax with jokes and gentle questions. She also shows great patience with any inappropriate behavior towards her, as seen when Pinkie Pie snatches a cupcake from her at a party in A Bird in the Hoof.
Celestia displays a fun-loving side when she chuckles at the bottle of disappearing ink sent to her by Twilight in Griffon the Brush Off. In A Bird in the Hoof, while sipping from a constantly refilled cup of tea, she pretends to sip from her already full cup, causing Mr. and Mrs. Cake to overfill it. She watches with a smile on her face when Pinkie Pie devours one of her cupcakes, while Mrs. Cake gasps and drags Pinkie away. Celestia tells the Mane Six in The Best Night Ever, after they ruin the Grand Galloping Gala, that she always found the Gala awful and she was hoping they would liven it up. In Make New Friends but Keep Discord, Celestia invites Discord to the Gala for this same reason, and by the end of the episode, she declares it to be "the most fun Gala in years."
While kindhearted and slow to anger, Celestia's patience does have its limits. When faced against the threat of Discord's return in The Return of Harmony Part 1, Celestia wastes no time in demanding that Discord return the stolen Elements of Harmony. Also, in Lesson Zero, when Spike makes her aware that Twilight inadvertently unleashed mass chaos onto Ponyville in her obsessive attempts to find a friendship report to send to the Princess, Celestia personally intervenes to undo Twilight's out-of-control spell. She sternly orders her student to a private meeting to discuss her actions but remains to understand, and at the insistence of Twilight's friends, she agrees not to punish Twilight, instead of asking them all to send her friendship reports only when the lessons make themselves apparent to them.
In A Canterlot Wedding - Part 1, after Twilight accuses impostor Cadance of being evil with no evidence to back her claims, Princess Celestia, along with the others, makes clear her deep disappointment in her student and walks out on Twilight after Shining Armor and the other ponies. But in A Canterlot Wedding - Part 2, while displaying righteous rage to the newly-exposed Queen Chrysalis, she eventually commends Twilight for her instincts that told her the impostor Cadance was evil.
Celestia can also be very forgiving. She does not admonish Fluttershy for taking Philomena without asking in A Bird in the Hoof. As mentioned above, she does not punish Twilight for the chaos she caused in Lesson Zero. In Keep Calm and Flutter On, she firmly believed that Discord could behave, despite the trouble he had caused in the past.
Celestia was introduced in the prologue as the older one of two sisters (the younger one being Nightmare Moon). She used her powers to raise the sun at dawn while Nightmare Moon brought out the moon to begin the night.
However, the ponies played in the day but "shunned" the night and slept through it, which made the younger one grow bitter, eventually refusing to lower the moon to make way for the dawn. Her bitterness transformed her into a wicked mare of darkness: Nightmare Moon. Celestia reluctantly harnessed the power of the Elements of Harmony and banished her in the moon for 1,000 years, maintaining harmony in Equestria by taking responsibility for both sun and moon.
The day of Nightmare Moon's return is also the 1,000 year anniversary of the Summer Sun Celebration, so Celestia sends Twilight Sparkle to oversee the celebration's preparations, which are being held in Ponyville, and encourages Twilight to "stop reading dusty old books" and make friends, much to her surprise.
Celestia is expected to appear at Ponyville's pavilion, but she goes missing and Nightmare Moon appears in her place instead. After Nightmare Moon is redeemed by the Elements of Harmony, she offers her younger sister a chance to rule by her side again, and she accepts.
In one alternate timeline in The Cutie Re-Mark - Part 1, Celestia wages a war against King Sombra and his Crystal Ponies, leading the royal guards and Wonderbolts into battle. In another alternate timeline in The Cutie Re-Mark - Part 2, the events of the prologue happen with the roles reversed. In a third alternate timeline leaded by Discord, Celestia and Luna are reduced to being Discord's personal entertainment
Prior to ruling Equestria
Celestia described more of her history in The Return of Harmony Part 1. She tells Twilight Sparkle and her friends that before Princess Luna and she stood up the Discord, he ruled over Equestria, keeping it in a state of unrest and unhappiness. Celestia goes on to describe that after seeing how miserable life was for Earth ponies, Unicorns, and Pegasi alike, she and Luna discovered the Element of Harmony and defeated Discord, turning him to stone. Discord's spell is later broken because, as Celestia explains, "Luna and [herself] are no longer connected to the elements". In The Crystal Empire - Part 1, Celestia describes how she and Luna worked together to defeated King Sombra, turning him into a shadow and imprisoning him in "the arctic north". Even further back in time, Twilight's Kingdom - Part 1 confirms that Celestia was an associate of the legendary Star Swirl the Bearded. During the Pre-Classical era, Celestia and Luna were involved in the first defeat of the evil centaur Lord Tirek, sending the villain to Tartarus.
Summer Sun Celebration
The Summer Sun Celebration is first mentioned in the first episode. Twilight reads the legend of the Mare in the Moon, who is set to return and bring everlasting night "on the longest day of the thousandth year"– the summer solstice since her defeat, which is also the thousandth year of the Summer Sun Celebration. Princess Celestia orders Twilight to oversee the preparations for the celebration in Ponyville, where it's being held this year, also telling her to make some friends while she does that. Nightmare Moon claims to have been imprisoned for a thousand years, so this indicates that the first celebration happened after Luna was imprisoned. It is a celebration of her imprisonment.
During a party, Spike reminds Twilight that the ponies have to stay up all night in order to witness Princess Celestia raise the sun. At the Ponyville pavilion, Mayor Mare holds a brief speech and introduces Princess Celestia, but she turns up missing, and Nightmare Moon appears in her place. At the end of the following episode, Princess Celestia only reappears with the defeat of Nightmare Moon, and the sun subsequently rises.
In the two-part Season 4 premiere, the Celebration is featured and mentioned. Unlike the previous Celebrations, this represents not the defeat of Nightmare Moon but the return of Princess Luna.
