One would be hard-pressed to find a cultural sensation as unique and as unexpected as Bronies: a group of mostly young adult men who are dedicated fans of the animated series created for little girls, called My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. The documentary discovers why these guys are attracted to a cartoon intended for little girls and why are they willing to brave society's ridicule for their love of the show.

Along with the essential story elements of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic -- Honesty, Kindness, Laughter, Generosity, Loyalty and Magic - have a universality that extends beyond age and gender and that Bronies are pushing the boundaries of what society deems appropriate in their quest for a kinder, gentler future.

Bronies from around the world, reveal their own unique stories, as they make their way to My Little Pony conventions in Germany, England and, the biggest of all, BronyCon: a convention attended by over 4,000 Bronies in the USA.

The revelations in the film are, indeed, unexpected and give hope to the notion that Bronies might be on to something quite wonderful.

Bronies: The Extremely Unexpected Adult Fans of My Little Pony was released November 4th, 2013 and stars John de Lancie, Alex Tibcken, Tim Star, Lauren Faust, Lyle Gilpatrick, Jeanne Gilpatrick, Tom Gilpatrick, Yoav Landau. The film is directed by Laurent Malaquais.

    I'm a diehard brony. I'm often teased about it, and sometimes it does actually get to me. Many people think it's not "cool" to be a brony; That it's out of the norm. No, it's not out of the norm, it's out of their veiw on what normal is. What really offends me is that I'm rediculed for liking a girls show in a world where girls dress, act, and talk like men (and in extreme cases look like guys too). The RD cosplayer in the trailer to this movie is correct; Bronies are very nice people, for the most part anyways. But in this world, haters gonna hate, and i'm gonna smile smile smile through it

    @Michael-Kolesik I appreciate the comment dude. I guess the ones who seem bashful are the ones who immediately jump to conclusions or something and then everyone overreacts and would resort to petty insults. It's usually best not to encourage that but then again, this is the internet :P.
    @skywise "I love you pestilence pony!" you should check out college humor's my little brony on youtube. It's hilarious also.

    @Celestialforthcoming Holy sh*t. I like you. It's not every day an intelligent man is found on the internet that calmly and concisely presents a good viewpoint with logic and reasoning. :')

    @therealGoku It's not exactly as you see it. I'm a 21 year old marine who appreciates animation and good writing. I completely understand the skepticism when the subject comes to mind because of the theme the show is based on but there is a reason why all of a sudden, today, there is now a huge fanbase around MLP and these people have the same appreciation for animation. It's just a surprise that it is toward a show that AT FIRST was directed to little girls but after Lawren Faust took over, she made the show for the whole family, not just girls. It's by that approach that now you have a larger variety of demographics that adores the show now. Indeed, it is odd at first to find grown men loving the show but its the same men that loves cartoons in general, appreciates humor, and so on. Its the same demographic that loves video games, comics, anime, film, sports, or just appreciates a good show, etc. The problem with the fanbase however is the "dark side" of MLP but like any other fanbase, there is always a dark side to them. The only thing different from other fanbase to bronies is the large contrast. in conclusion, the excruciatingly minute number of "old creeps" should not stand for the whole brony medium. And trust me when I say, I'm not the only marine brony lol :P. I hope that sheds some light. if not, oh well :P

    @shuabert You do not get to compare Pokemon with Bronies/MLP :p

    @mr-k Personally, PPG was never strictly for girls in the same light as other shows with leading female characters.

    This is no weirder a subculture than all the college kids who still get boners over Pokemon.

    @mr-k anything with Tara Strong in it seems to be good(PPG, MLP, and Teen Titans), though I've only seen 1 episode of MLP. I have a son, so I try to steer him toward more boyish shows, but my best friend has a toddler girl and he watches MLP more attentively than she does lol

    I was exactly the same way before watching mlp. I thought it was stupid with the usual negative responses when the subject comes to conversation but then I watched the show and here I am as a brony. I'll be sure to catch up on this one. Counting down the days to season 4!

    i wish adventure time had a fanbase like this. i think the lessons from AT are way better like in the first episode where we learn that if you break your promises your dead friends will come back to life

    Although, PPG was a show for girls too and it kicked ass.

    Go crazy Bronies! Honestly, I'm OK for these people expressing their love for this show cause MLP: Friendship is Magic is a pretty cool show and I'm still surprised that I enjoyed this show since this is a cartoon for girls.
