Editorial Reviews

In early 2012, John de Lancie discovered that he had been flooded with hundreds of e-mails almost overnight for his portrayal of the mischievous villain Discord in Friendship is Magic. Oddly enough, all of the mail seemed to be coming from adults! This was when he discovered Bronies for the first time, and the concept of such a unique demographic forming around a TV show fascinated him to no end. As the fandom grew, so did his curiosity. Seeking to learn more about this phenomenon, he joined forces with producer Michael Brockhoff to create a documentary, and in the process answer essential questions about the Bronies: who they were, where they came from, and what they aimed to do. With show creator Lauren Faust and voice actor Tara Strong onboard, they raised support on crowdfunding site Kickstarter and became the second most funded documentary project in the site's history.

Nine Things about the Movie “Bronies: The Extremely Unexpected Adult Fans of My Little Pony”

1. This little documentary was much more interesting than I expected. I actually watched it twice in one week.

2. It’s about how the show “My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic” was created to use the classic My Little Pony characters as archetypes for various positive character traits, and challenge female stereotypes. It was aimed at little girls.

3. What nobody expected is that guys got obsessed with the show, too, and began to call themselves “bronies” - which is a combination of “bro” and “pony”. Their favorite form of greeting is the fist bump - which they call the "bro hoof".

4. The movie follows several different bronies from all over the world, and how they found each other. It also goes into the difficulties they face for being open about how much they like a
“girlie show”. It also shows their journeys to various “BronyCons”, which are huge conventions of bronies.

5. People that are uncomfortable with bronies suspect that they are either gay, or the opposite - they like little girls too much. This movie does a good job of dispelling those myths. One of the more interesting scenes is a gathering of bronies in the military.

6. What’s fascinating is how this show has obviously hit a real nerve among men - this is not an isolated phenomenon. We see people from redneck small towns, couples in Germany, a DJ in Israel, and a British kid with Asperger's Syndrome. This is not an isolated fetish.

7. Some bronies feel this documentary is too one-sided, by making bronies all look socially awkward and prone to discrimination.

This documentary was funded by a Kickstarter project razing over $322,022. I was one of the supporters of this just received my copy in the mail today.
The production quality was very good and the animation for then segment transitions was show quality and made me laugh. I would recommend this to anyone concerned and wanting to know what this fandom is all about. It doesn’t cover everything but shows the hardships and ridicule some of us face in the fandom. This also shows the creativity of the fandom and just how much we take the lessons to heart. I know these people, I know this community and glad to be apart of it.

I was shown this by someone who supported the kickstarter. It's an interesting watch, although the intro is quite lengthy, and it took me a few minutes to figure out how the documentary would pan out. I found the pacing outside of the intro, very good, and the information they presented very welcoming.
If you had told me this came from a kickstarter, and was funded by bronies, i'd be shocked.
I'm shocked.

Finally there is a documentary on this! People don't counter cultures & feel the need to insult them as often, & cruelly, as possible. MLP:FIM is a really great show for kids & adults. It teaches kindness, friendship, tolerance & a whole bunch of wonderful things that adults forget. Don't judge without knowing the full story. Yea, clopping is rather gross but porn is part of everything single fandom out there. Just ignore it & enjoy the show. It's nice how Lauren Faust points out that guys need to be emotional. This whole tough guy is ridculous & unfair to men. Let them enjoy their emotions. It's fine to feel things. Even if the catalyst for the change is a kids show. At least a positive thing happened. So, overall I'm very happy with documentary but I wish that they had more stories focused on the female bronies. We're part of the fandom too!

An interesting look at a culture I previously knew nothing about. Presented in an empathetic way that doesn't make the "Bronies" seem like social outcasts. Worth the time.

I would recommend this to anyone who's just starting out in the My Little Pony fandom. It has a nice summary of events and you get a general feeling of those involved in the making of the show. It's nice to see how people get involved and the energy surrounding the really big conventions. I thought the personal stories they followed through the show were a nice touch.

If you're looking for really deep, super-secret information, you might be disappointed. Most of the information in this product is out there on fan-built websites.

Personally, I liked the extended interview with Lauren Faust in this Complete Edition the most. However, there isn't really any super secrets revealed in the interviews.

Great for someone just starting to get curious about the fandom.

I'd recommend this to any MLP fans out there or for people who are interested in getting some insight on a cultural phenomenon. It's well produced and John De Lancie is a delight. The extra disc with the extended interviews was very neat - I particularly liked seeing Faust's entire segment uncut.
