Over the past six years fans of Mattel’s hit line Monster High have watched their favorite ghouls and company embark on countless adventures. From the various volumes of short webisodes posted on their web-site and prospective, to the full length direct to video tales. We have gotten a good grasp not only on the characters and their un-lives, but also the world around them.
From Hauntlywood, Scaris and even Boo York among other locations, fans of the series have been able to submerse themselves into a very distant world that feels familiar.
As of recent the real focus that has been on Monster High has been in regards to the reboot that we had reported on towards the end of last year. Even though there has been a time-gap between then and now, there is still a lot of very strong opinions in regards to the reboot. Now that the new dolls are starting to slowly make their way to both physical and online retailers it has become a lot more real. And with a full trailer for the next film, the first as part of what looks like new canon, Welcome to Monster High coming this fall, it seems to be here to stay.
During the past few months one of the most notable comments I have seen made across the Internet is that this reboot is, in part, was done to make an Ever After High crossover a possibility. Of course how true that might be is hard to determine without every piece of the puzzle.
Yet a prospective Ever After High crossover has been something fans have waited for and aspire to have. Ever since C.A Cupid was noted to be transferring to another school and the teaser web-sites (tentatively titled Rewrite Destiny, Royal or Rebel and Village of Bookend) when live fans quickly desired a crossover.
Over the past few years we have seen both sides of the coin continually offer slight Easter-eggs tipping into teaser territory with basically every medium of narrative. There have even been instances where characters have made less than subtle comments about their un-seen count -part. Naturally the level of self-awareness varies based on just who said comment came from.
Despite the fact the teasers have always been there, and naturally Cupid’s transfer acts as a massive plot point, it really was the end of Boo York that really made it clear just how close Ever After is to the world of Monster High.
Even with everything aligning, a crossover seemed a long ways off.
Until now that is, over the past few weeks Monster High has been uploading videos to their official YouTube channel under the hem of The Lost Movie. These short videos depict Draculaura and Clawdeen watching footage from Hauntlywood about an upcoming film starting themselves. In the ruff animated clips we see that clearly a fantasy driven adventure is ahead for the ghouls and even the fariyteens of Ever After.
Despite showing the characters from Ever After High, as well as aspects of its mythology. The Lost Movie seems to strongly favor Monster High to the point it is likely going to take place in their universe.
Outside of the videos there are only a few images posted that highly suggest that the long awaited crossover is coming. Even though we do see animation in the videos, it is also noted that Clawdeen and Draculaura mention the use of real actors. As of now there has not been any formal statement telling us any specific details. This could very well be the live-action film that had been mentioned, or something else.
Time will tell. And with any luck we will have some solid information in the near future.
