GKids announced that they are bringing the gory animated film ‘Unicorns Wars’ to Blu-ray in a special home video release. The DVD box set will include the film’s trailer and several other special features.
“The latest genre-bending animated feature for adults from Goya and Annecy Cristal-winning director Alberto Vásquez, Unicorn Wars will debut on Blu-ray May 9th, 2023 from GKIDS, with distribution by Shout! Factory,” GKids said on their website. “Vásquez’ use of a hyper-saturated color palate and iconography typically associated with children juxtaposes his exploration of religious zealotry, the tortured legacies of military fascism, and the depths of the soul.”
The bonus features include an interview with the movie director, a feature-length animatic, and the “Working in Blender” featurette.
GKids adds, “A provocative and darkly beautiful horror comedy described as Bambi meets Apocalypse Now, this critically acclaimed technicolor film 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 animated film features award-winning actor Ramón Barea as the narrator of the plot.
Gkids describes the synopsis as follows,
“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 Aggressive, confident teddy bear Bluet and his sensitive, withdrawn brother Tubby could not be more different.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.”
A co-production of Spanish and French filmmakers, the film received funding from Eurimages, an organization that promotes the arts. It was produced by Iván Miñambres, Chelo Loureiro, and Nicolas Schmerkin.
