What if they wanted to crossover FiM and EQ in the show somehow?
How would they do it?
>"Hey, everypony, my pen pal Sunset Shimmer is coming to visit!"
And it's literally that simple
Have some epsiodes take place in the EqG. It would be a nice change of pace, plus it's not like it would focusing on entirely new charcters, only one of them is exclusive to the movies the rest are just the mane 6 on 2 legs
If they don't do a Sunset and Celestia reconciliation in a movie, they could do it in the show. Hell, now that Starlight's with them, they've got a good excuse to introduce who Sunset is for the people who haven't watched the movies.
Not to go with the obvious answer, but yeah, this. Sunset's been one of the stronger points of the EQG movies and it wouldn't be hard to bring her into the show if the writers decided to.
>Sunset in Starlight's body
>Starlight in Sunset's body
This doesn't taint FiM, he's just a regular pony like every other character that appear on both the show and the movies. Besides, they've most likely dropped him after the Flashlight debacle
>This doesn't taint FiM, he's just a regular pony
Then I guess having Sunset in the show wouldn't taint it either
Only if they somehow introduce her with a completely different story, something that implies she didn't go to a highschool dimension inhabited by humanoid creatures. That would be the best course of action
If she appears on the background or even as a secondary character and literally no one acknowledges her or have a different personality then yes, it wouldn't taint the show. She'd be just another character like Cranky or Lyra.
Or they could keep her the same and just not mention high school land at all
For fucks sake she studies magic and has such a well established relationship with Twalot that it would be plain silly to throw that away for no good reason
The hard part would be to craft that relationship that would've happened offscreen and IN Equestria, and make it look as good as the relationship they've established in EQG.
It would be weird to have Twilight have such a good friend but never mention her until then. But, oh well, it's been done before *cough* cadence *cough*
