Bronies: The Extremely Unexpected Adult Fans of My Little Pony (2012) More at IMDbPro »

Bronies: The Extremely Unexpected Adult Fans of My Little Pony -- Bronies: The Extremely Unexpected Adult Fans of My Little Pony is a feature length documentary film that explores the cultural phenomenon of Bronies: a group of mostly young adult men who are dedicated fans of the animated series, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. 

One would be hard-pressed to find a cultural sensation as unique and as unexpected as Bronies. Why are these guys attracted to a cartoon intended for little girls? And why are they willing to brave society’s ridicule for their love of the show?

The documentary discovers that 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. 

The film chronicles Bronies from around the world, each with their unique story, as they make their way to My Little Pony conventions in Germany, England and, the biggest of all, BronyCon in the USA.

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

Did You Know?

John de Lancie came up with the idea of this film when he noticed that the adult fandom of "My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic" (2010) was being treated with contempt in the mainstream media and wanted to respond to the sneering.See more »
Factual errors: When a clip of "My Little Pony Tales" (1992) is shown, it is identified as "Generation 2", even though it was still technically part of Generation 1, on the late end. "G2" refers to a line of toys that had no direct media tie-in.See more »

Funny, but disgusting, 31 August 2014

This is quite possibly the most cringe worthy thing I have seen in a long time. I seriously think the people in it suffer from severe autism, but I could just as easily be wrong.

Only positive is that watching it with a friend will get some good laughs during some parts.

I highly do not recommend watching this. The people interviewed just make you cringe beyond belief, it is poorly edited even for a documentary and is based on a topic that is extremely pointless. I honestly don't even know how this got made with how bad it is imo. Think very carefully before contemplating watching this 'documentary'. If you are a sadistic prick, watch it and laugh at all the cringe moments.
