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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bronies, from someone outside March 11, 2013
By Tnpcook
Format:Blu-ray
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A croud sourced autobiography of the Bronies. March 8, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful March 11, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
I watched this last night with my family, and they loved it. It really is nice to see people come together, especially when they do so much for charity. This sort of thing wasn't possible twenty years ago.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Overall Great Representation April 19, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I liked the fact that they went abroad to interview and study the lives of bronies, because it gives the viewers a different perspective on the fandom. Picking people in the US that aren't readily accepted by those around them was a smart choice, considering how the public, overall, views us. Once you're able to step into the life of someone else, your views can easily change, thereby creating a more sympathetic and accepting reaction to those whom one might view as "different".

The extended interviews were great! Sitting through the 2 hours worth of footage of Lauren Faust gave me a lot more insight on what she originally had in mind for the series. It was tough seeing her so emotional from the fact that she can't take the characters that she created through the lives she had planned for them. I can only imagine how mixed her feelings are nowadays. Seeing the series she created get more and more recognition, even after she left... It must be hard, yet still heartwarming.

I hope that she will always know that we will forever remember who brought us such a wonderful series. It was she who thought up such a beautifully vast and complex world full of all kinds of creatures that captivate millions of viewers. It's because of her that I've met so many new friends through the fandom. It's because of her that so many people have found hope and happiness. I don't think she'll ever know just how much she's helped change the lives of so many people in such positive ways. Through her creations, people have found the kindness within themselves and the acceptance they've been searching for.

Friendship truly is magic. Thank you, Lauren Faust. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart.

4.0 out of 5 stars SURPRISING January 18, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I had no idea this movement existed, let alone its social value. A movie that promotes a peaceful, kind, compassionate way of life based upon a cartoon series.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fun documentary to watch January 2, 2014
Format:Blu-ray
I am not a 'Brony' not a female one (cannot remember the name for the females) but I was a little girl who grew up with My Little Pony. I remember buying them until I was 13 and forced to grow up. With a 5 year old and seeing more of these around, and wondering about this sensation known as the 'Brony', I decided to watch the documentary. I thought it was fun, fair, and realistic view of this amazing culture. I found it slow at the start- but most documentaries are - and really enjoyed it. The fan music at the end was really catchy too. I can only imagine what it's like for these men, but a shame to think people think of them as a stigma and pedophiles.

To be fair, I am fascinated by sociology and what makes someone deviant, not that I think Bronies are deviant, but they do go against the norm for sure. If ou want to understand a little more about them. this is the show for you. I believe it followed 6 fellows from around the world, so a worldwide sensation for sure. I enjoyed the little cartoon detailing the bronys and the info. I would give it 5 stars, but it was as polished as I would have liked, and the updates on the people they followed weren't really updates. (For example one Brony went to a convention and his update was that he was applied for jobs and was confident. um..not a real update if you ask me.) however, it was engaging, and I found myself not only wanting to finish it, but only enjoying it as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME! December 29, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I loved this documentary because it showed what the brony phenomenon is all about. My favorite part is when John de Lancie, as an animated pony, sings about the various aspects of brony fandom. My other favorite part is when a young brony explains to his dad that he loves My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, even though his dad remembered and did not like the old show from the 80s. He also tells his dad what the show is about and why he likes it. I would recommend this documentary for anyone who loves My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and want to watch other bronies express their love of the show.

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.
