DC has announced Super Best Friends Forever EXCLUSIVE maquettes for San Diego Comic Con 2013!!! [link]
WANDER OVER YONDER Emmy-winning producer Craig McCracken, among the most sought-after talent in TV animation, is the creator/executive producer of Disney Channel's upcoming Wander Over Yonder, an animated comedy series about best friends and epic enemies, set in surreal places across the universe. Wander is an overly-optimistic intergalactic traveler who, along with his loyal but bullish steed, Sylvia, goes from planet to planet helping people to live free and have fun, all against the evil reign of Lord Hater and his army of Watchdogs. The voice cast includes Jack McBrayer (30 Rock, Phineas and Ferb), Keith Ferguson (Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends) and Tom Kenny (SpongeBob SquarePants). McCracken created the Emmy-winning series The Powerpuff Girls and produced a feature film based on it. He also created the hit series Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends, which also won him an Emmy Award. Prior to creating his own shows, McCracken directed Dexter's Laboratory and worked on a variety of shows for Hanna-Barbera. Wander Over Yonder is a production of Disney Television Animation.
Dear Princess Celestia,
What an amazing group of people Bronies and those who support Bronies are!
Twenty-four days ago we announced our dream of producing a documentary about the phenomenon of "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic" and its dedicated fans who live its values in their daily lives. Well, not only have thousands of members of the Brony Community and other members of the public come forward to encourage us, enough of them have shown their generosity that we can make an even better film than we ever imagined! They also helped the project become the 2nd most funded film of all time on Kickstarter.
Thank you for your inspiration and the inspiration we have received, and will continue to receive, from people everywhere.
Your faithful students,
Tara, Lauren, John, Mike, Laurent & the rest of the crew.
$322,022 Kickstarter (before fees)
$26,142 Paypal (before fees)
$348,164 GRAND TOTAL
The Paypal account at www.bronydoc.com will remain open for upgrades and new pledges. Announcements on when each level closes will be made on that page soon.
We are the 7th most funded film of all time on Kickstarter. We are climbing to the top with 6 days to go. Thank you everyone!
So what's the next goal? International. Once we get to $270k, we'll be adding a big trip to the itinerary. We'll film at the Galacon Convention in Stuttgart, Germany on August 11 & 12th and BUCK BronyUKCon in Manchester, England on August 18th and 19th .
== CASTING CALL ==
We are looking for MLP fans that fit these descriptions. If one of these sounds like you, please email your story, your name, phone number, city you live in and a picture to firstname.lastname@example.org
Military Bronies who are living in Arizona specifically.
A parent and son in his 20's who are both fans and have bonded over MLP.
An adult Brony who has Aspergers, Autism or other syndrome or disorder and has been helped by the show.
Bronies living in the Southern California area with interesting lives and stories to tell.
It is important to note, this is just one of a few rounds of casting. Because we are looking for specific stories does not mean we have excluded others. We have received lots of emails and already have stories we don't need to cast for. We are also still considering all stories already sent to us.
== ART CONTEST ==
We are running a prizes.org contest looking for one piece of art that will be issued as a limited edition print for contributors to the Kickstarter campaign.
The winner will receive a $500 cash price and have an opportunity to meet Tara Strong, Lauren Faust and John de Lancie at BronyCon.
The contest starts soon at:
We are pleased to announce that Tara Strong and Lauren Faust have joined us as executive producers of the documentary. Both bring amazing talent and exciting ideas that will help make this film even better.
We are also announcing a new funding push. The response to our casting call was overwhelming. There are so many amazing and inspiring stories out there. We can't tell them all, but with your help we can include lots of them. As you may know we started out as a documentary essentially covering a convention, which is taking place over a few days, but we want to do more. We want to take viewers into the homes of the amazing people who identify as Bronies. This costs money. We have to pay for travel and hotels, crew members and equipment rentals.
Our new goal is $200,000. So how do we get there? We've added some great rewards so please consider upping your pledge. From having your pony OC drawn by Lauren to getting your Blu-ray disk and artwork signed by Tara, Lauren and John to having dinner with all three, we have something for everyone.
Please spread the word to help us drive toward the goal, which will help make this possible. If you know anyone who has not already made a pledge, please direct him or her to the Kickstarter campaign.
