A Canterlot Wedding is the two-part finale for Season 2 of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

Synopsis

Part 1: Twilight is confused by her conflicting feelings when she finds out her brother Shining Armor is marrying Celestia's niece Mi Amore.

Part 2: Twilight saves her brother and all of ponykind by freeing the real Mi Amore and defeating Queen Chrysalis, a changeling that had assumed Mi Amore's appearance in an attempt to take over Equestria.

Production

Development of A Canterlot Wedding dates back to November 2, 2010. Originally, Twilight's brother was named "Fire Ball", and his future wife was named "Ultra Violet". Only 2 days later, on November 4, the episode was rejected.

A new premise of this episode was submitted on January 19, 2011, before it became #23 in the Season 2 episode list.

The episode officially became a two-part story on February 14, 2011, while Magic Duel was put on hiatus. As of then, the order of all Season 2 episodes was finalized.

Meghan McCarthy wrote the full outline on March 30, 2011, then the first full script for part 1 on May 10 and part 2 on May 12. Revisions were made to the script from May 26 through June 14, before voice recording began shortly afterwards.

The full animatic for part 1 was submitted for review on September 9, 2011, followed by part 2's animatic on September 19.

The first fully animated version for part 1 was submitted for review on January 18, 2012, then part 2 on January 25.

Production for part 1 was officially complete on March 19, 2012, while part 2 was done on March 23.
