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.
