Princess Skystar is a female seapony and Hippogriff who appears as a supporting character in My Little Pony The Movie. She is the princess of the underwater kingdom of Seaquestria and the daughter of Queen Novo.

Development and design

Kristin Chenoweth mentioned in an October 6, 2015 Twitter reply, "I get to help pick my mane color."[1]

My Little Pony The Movie art director Rebecca Dart reveals in the art book The Art of My Little Pony: The Movie that Skystar originally had two sisters named Haven Bay and Salina Blue. However, when the writers decided to make Skystar an only child, the two characters became background characters.

Depiction in the film

Princess Skystar appears in My Little Pony The Movie as one of the film's new supporting characters. She is first heard humming in a subterranean grotto in the abandoned city of Hippogriffia, retreating into the water when the Mane Six and Spike approach. When the ponies get caught in a whirlpool and trapped underwater without air, Skystar saves them by creating magic air bubbles. Skystar is wary of the ponies at first, but upon learning their land was attacked by the Storm King, she excitedly takes them to meet her mother Queen Novo.

Skystar vouches for the land-dwellers before Novo can imprison or cast them out, and she reveals—against her mother's wishes—that they are in fact the Hippogriffs the Mane Six have been seeking, having been driven underwater when the Storm King invaded their former home. After Queen Novo uses her Pearl of Transformation to turn the ponies into seaponies, Skystar offers to let the Mane Six stay in their kingdom forever. However, the ponies decline and say they have to return to their families, much to Skystar's disappointment.

At Twilight Sparkle's encouragement, Pinkie Pie and the rest of the ponies cheer Skystar up with singing, games, and a party. An overjoyed Skystar urges her mother to do something for the ponies in return. But before she can, Twilight gets caught trying to steal Novo's pearl, resulting in her and her friends' immediate banishment from Seaquestria.

Later, after Twilight is captured by Tempest Shadow and taken back to Canterlot, Skystar defies her mother and uses her pearl to change back into a Hippogriff. She joins the rest of Twilight's friends, Capper, and Captain Celaeno's pirate crew in saving Twilight and retaking Canterlot. During their infiltration of the city, Skystar hides inside a cake being delivered to the Storm King. When Grubber blows their cover, she fights alongside the others, using her clam friends Shelly and Sheldon to attack the Storm Guards.

After the Storm King is defeated, Skystar celebrates with all of her new friends at the Friendship Festival, and during her reunion with her mother, she gets grounded for leaving home.

Personality

MLP The Movie Hasbro website - Skystar and oyster friends
Princess Skystar is portrayed as very cheerful, bubbly, quirky, and talkative. Lonely and yearning for friends, she quickly grows attached to the Mane Six—particularly Pinkie Pie, whose excitability and eccentricities match her own. Skystar is also very imaginative and creative, making various trinkets and even imaginary friends out of shells, and somewhat rebellious and impulsive, demonstrated when she disobeys her mother to help her new friends on dry land.
