Hello there geek fans, here is a very unique subject matter I wanted to share with all of you, Bronies, which are the subculture of middle aged men who are obsessed with the show My Little Pony. Now I don’t consider myself a Bronies, but I have seen s few episodes and my niece loves the show, so I can appreciate the cartoon, and I can definitely say growing up when My Little Pony originally came out, this show is so much better and not crazy ass girlie like it’s original, it fits very well into the modern day style of cartoons we see today like Adventure Time, Regular Show, and etc. It’s a very goofy and off the wall playful and funny series that even plays with its geek fanbase, like have a small character inspired by Dr. Who.
Now to showcase this side of the My Little Pony fandom is a movie A BRONY TALE, which not only gives us an inside look into the incredible niche world of these men, called Bronies, but also into their lives where their intense love for the series is present in. Documentary producer Morgan Spurlock, who previously covered comics fandom in his San Diego Comic-Con documentary Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope, has turned his camera on My Little Pony fans in a new documentary release premiering in July. A Brony Tale is the first release under Executive Producer Morgan Spurlock’s (Super Size Me, One Direction: This is Us) “Morgan Spurlock Presents” label. Directed by Canadian Brent Hodge (CBC’s Winning America, The Cockumentary), the movie will premiere in theaters on July 8th, and come to Video on Demand on July 15th. The movie will follow Brent Hodge as he learns about what he believes are the estimated three million adult males in the United States that identify as fans of the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic cartoon series. Also, in the documentary it follows Canadian voice actress Ashleigh Ball, who voices Applejack and Rainbow Dash on the show, on her journey to the 2012 BronyCon event in New York City as she meets members of the fandom.
I never knew that there was much of a male fanbase for this show so it’s very interesting to know that it’s big enough for a convention and strong enough in pop culture for a documentary. I will definitely check out this documentary, one I love documentaries, especially ones on the unique and pop culture related, and two I’m interested in the lives of these guys who seem to love this show to high degrees. And if you like what you see and read then please, share, like, and comment, help us spread the loving.
