Storyline

Vancouver-based voice artist Ashleigh Ball has been the voice of numerous characters in classic cartoons such as Care Bears, Strawberry Shortcake, Cinderella and more. When Ashleigh was hired to voice Apple Jack and Rainbow Dash for Hasbro's fourth series to use the My Little Pony name - My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic - she had no idea she would become an Internet phenomenon and major celebrity to a worldwide fan-base of grownups. Bronies are united by their belief in the show's philosophy. This documentary gives an inside view of the Pony fan-world, and an intimate look at the courage it takes to just be yourself...even when that means liking a little girls' cartoon.

Goofs

At one point in the film, Mike Bernstein says that the fandom started on 4chan's "/b/" (random) board. While it is true that the fandom did get its start on 4chan, and started to pick up steam on "/b/", the show first started getting noticed on "/co/" (cartoons and comics). Additionally Mike says that the word "brony" comes from "/b/ + pony", when really, this is not entirely true, either. Contrary to what Mike says, "brony" is widely accepted as having come from "bro + pony". See more »

OK doc 'bout an interesting subculture
18 July 2014 | by See all my reviews

Saw this surrounded by cheering, cool, nice (maybe a bit too talkative) people who describe themselves as Bronies. They were cool. Nice and true to themselves without a heir of pretension.

Wish the same could be said about the focus of "A Brony Tale."

She's a voice actress (and friend of the director), blonde and bland. Her band sucks.

A more interesting character appears, tells us of his boredom. Never feeling part of something. A loner. A true soul. A depressive state took over after serving in Iraq, with which he found relief in drawing ponies. Little Ponies.

Friendship Is Magic!
