It’s been a long time coming. I didn’t donate to the project, and will probably never watch this documentary, but I know a lot of people did and they sent out the digital distribution codes earlier today. If you didn’t donate but want a copy, they’re selling it on their website for around twelve dollars. I think thread mirroring is still down, so I put this thread in Huburbia because it was more relevant here. If you’ve seen the movie, feel free to opine and discuss it in this thread.

Considering the amount of discussion that was taking place on here back when the kickstarter launched, I assumed more people bought it. Apparently not. However, the animator of the cartoon segments uploaded the bulk of the documentary's animated clips, with permission, so that's worth checking out.
That animation was very well done. Maybe not exactly up to the standard of the show, but close enough to capture the look and feel of it. I like the quip about gen 3 being "too tragic." I don't know about the rest of the doc, but this seemed to do a good job of summing things up.

I haven't seen it myself, but i've heard mixed reactions, some people are saying its just pointless propaganda. And I guess to a point I can agree, I mean the whole thing exists to prove Bronies arn't deviants or something like that.


I will say though that it sounds interesting, so i'll probably view it eventually.

I got my download code but I just haven't taken the time to watch it yet is all.
Same here. I kinda forgot about this. I'll watch it when I have the time but I'm not in the mood for it ATM.

EDIT: Actually, while I did donate, I didn't donate enough for a digital copy of the documentary. The e-mail they sent me was for the trailer.

The documentary is now available on DVD and Blu-Ray:

Personally I did like the film but I felt there were some things that could have been better about it. There should have been a little more history on the fandom and there were some certain shots during the Bronycon segments they could have done without (Such as showing one guy who painted his nails pink with cutie mark stickers). But it was still a fun watch, and I enjoyed Tara's "Take My Hand" song during the credits.

Would you believe I was first exposed to Angelica Hale through here?
Oh look at that. My cable provider wants me to pay even MORE money just so I can watch the new Owl House episode on DisneyNow. Are you kidding me?
The winner is "Let's Meet Sonic", which got 3 votes. "Monster Party" got 1 vote. The next matchup is animated crossovers with live action shows. This time it's between "Halloween Night At The Museum" (Ultimate Spiderman & Jessie) and ScoobyNatural (Supernatural & Scooby Doo).


If schedule listings are to be believed, it appears as though Toonami will be airing reruns of DBS' Universe Survival Saga starting tonight.
Can we talk about how a French home video company had an opening logo consisting of an animated Groucho Marx set to disco music? I especially like the Fender Rhodes solo during the second half, even if it's just the warning message.
