Spanish Adult Animated Feature ‘Unicorn Wars’ Available on Demand March 10

GKIDS will release Unicorn Wars, a Spanish, genre-bending animated feature for adults from Goya and director Alberto Vásquez (Birdboy: The Forgotten Children), for limited theatrical release and on demand March 10.

The technicolor horror-comedy was featured in competition at the 2022 Annecy International Animation Film Festival, and was an official selection at BFI London, Animation Is Film, and Fantastic Fest.

The film uses an outrageous candy-colored premise to explore religious zealotry, the tortured legacies of military fascism and the depths of the soul. In the plot, for ages, teddy bears have been locked in an ancestral war against their sworn enemy the unicorns with the promise that victory will complete the prophecy and usher in a new era. Aggressive, confident teddy bear Bluet and his sensitive, withdrawn brother Tubby could not be more different. As the rigors and humiliation of teddy bear bootcamp turn to the psychedelic horrors of a combat tour in the Magic Forest, their complicated history and increasingly strained relationship will come to determine the fate of the entire war.

Unicorn Wars marks the next collaboration between GKIDS and Alberto Vázquez, following GKIDS’ local distribution of the Goya Award-winning feature Birdboy: The Forgotten Children and the short film “Decorado.”
