BronyCAN 2014 is one week away, and we’ve got some exciting news to share in the meantime! We’re always happy to welcome show staff who have yet to attend a fan convention as a guest of honor, so it brings us great pleasure to welcome Vancouver actress Veena Sood, who voices the impeccable Ms. Harshwhinny, to BronyCAN! She will be joining our current line-up of voice actors and DHX staff to talk about her experiences on the show, answer your questions, and sign autographs throughout the weekend!
We would also like to showcase one of our panels in particular, with the creators of the fan-created video game Horse Game being present to talk about their project. At 3PM, Aug. 23, lead developer Ben Cracknell and his team will explain how they intend to bring a game with a full single-player adventure and a multiplayer arena mode to the community. During the panel they will showcase gameplay, detail the development process, and explain their goals for where this project will lead.
Pre-registration closes tonight at midnight, so please purchase your passes now to save money and time at the convention! We look forward to seeing all our friends at BronyCAN, and will make sure that everyone has a great time in Vancouver, BC!

There are less than 30 days before BronyCAN arrives, but that doesn’t mean we’re finished adding exciting new events and guests to our show! We are excited to announce that veteran voice actors Andrew Francis (Shining Armor), Sam Vincent (Flim), and Richard Ian Cox (Snails) will be attending BronyCAN as our latest guests of honor! This talented trio will be hosting a panel about a new film they are collaborating on, titled Last Night in Suburbia, and be present on Saturday to meet their fans (i.e. you!) and sign autographs.
The panel will take place at 3-4PM on Saturday (Aug. 23). Check below for a description of what’s in store!
Last Night in Suburbia is a film in pre-production, being produced by Sam Vincent, written and directed by Richard Cox and co-produced by Andrew Francis. Ashleigh Ball is also chipping in by producing and contributing vocals to the soundtrack. Sam, Richard and Andrew will be giving us the lowdown on their newest project and answering some questions along the way. The film is about a close group of friends who are separating after summer holidays and are spending their last night together at a house party (Pinkie Pie is jealous already). Join us as we learn about their collaborative effort that will be filming this September!
