Last week, HN became aware of a twitter account called @BronyMovie accompanied by a teaser trailer for an upcoming film. Wanting to know more, we contacted the producers at Sunset Studios who gave us some insight about the project. Turns out it's a documentary and will be coming out sooner than you might expect! Q&A below.
What is "#BroniesUnite"?
#BroniesUnite is the call for the Brony community, like many of the featured individuals in the show, to share their stories in common with other bronies and with non-bronies. We invite the community to share fan art, music, story, and other creations with us online on social media such as Twitter and Facebook using this hashtag so that we can help share your stories and expressions from the Brony Community.
Is it a documentary or an original story?
MY LITTLE BRONY: FANDOM IS MAGIC is a short pop-culture stylized documentary bringing Bronies to the mainstream masses. The special follows the formats of many music and pop network shows of this style of television and media. The piece features part interviews with members of the Brony community, along with relatable reference to pop-culture and the My Little Pony show itself.
How far is the project into production?
The production on MLB is complete!
When is the expected release?
MY LITTLE BRONY: FANDOM IS MAGIC will be available for purchase, download, or rental exclusively through Amazon and Amazon Video on Demand on.
Where will it be seen?
This is a worldwide media release. So anyone who has the ability to log onto Amazon can rent or purchase their copy.
How did the studio encounter the Brony Fandom?
Bronies were a new experience for many of us at Sunset, however their were a few who were well versed in the community. We screened the special and the team thought it was a fun relevant piece to share with mainstream audiences.
Are any of the crew at Sunset Studios pony fans?
Absolutely! And some who weren't before have found the community of fans to be a fun group.
Any notable names on cast?
This piece is more in line with the pop-culture style shows you would see on mainstream music/culture networks and generally we include "real individuals" as opposed to hired actors. Keeps the show grounded in personal experiences which is exactly what we wanted to share with audiences.
