Bronies The Extremely Unexpected Adult Fans of My Little Pony
In the tradition of Trekkies this John DeLancie documentary follows several fans of the recent edition of My Little Pony. Quirky and brief this movie follows fans of the animated show from all over the world and how they are perceived by the general public and how the fans find solace in the growing network of internet fans. The movie touches on how the older male fans are ostracized by outsiders and perceived as weirdoes or homosexuals and even shows a Fox news clip making fun of the Bronies and one gentleman from North Carolina details a bullying incident. Overall this movie probably won't garner new fans for the re-booted cartoon and may not offer enough insight into why fans like the show but it was a fun watch on Netflix Streaming.
