Despite the heavy Next Generation presence at Wizard World New Orleans, most of de Lancie's early questions focused on other aspects of his work. One of his first topics concerned his voiceover work on the show My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and the documentary he is working on as a result of his experiences.
The actor explained that he was approached to do some voice acting for the show. He went in, read his lines and, quite frankly, forgot all about it. Months later, once the episodes aired, he started receiving fan mail from followers of the show, and when he realized the e-mails were coming from adult men, he was both confused and amused. When de Lancie relayed the story to a friend of his that films documentaries, the friend asked him if he wanted to do some work on the subculture known as Bronies. At first, de Lancie dismissed the idea until de Lancie both met some Bronies at a convention and that same friend sent him a link to a Fox News broadcast that claimed Bronies were "a bunch of homosexuals who live at home on food stamps and disability so that they can watch cartoons in their parent's basement." He didn't understand why anyone would perpetuate this image when the people he had met were normal guys who just happen to like a show that teaches good values and how to be good to people. Just because the show was intended for little girls doesn't mean it can't be enjoyed by all. Well, de Lancie then decided to dispel those views in his documentary called Bronies: The Extremely Unexpected Adult Fans of My Little Pony that was first shown this past November.
