After the animated series Primal, Genndy Tartakovsky is set to release his passion project Unicorn: Warriors Eternal on Adult Swim. The show had just premiered, but fans will be able to watch the first full episode for free on Youtube.
The synopsis for the series reads:
In “Unicorn: Warriors Eternal,” an evil force is looming across the dark, thick-aired streets of industrial revolution London when a group of heroes dubbed Unicorn are accidentally reawakened in the bodies of teenagers instead of adult hosts they’ve embodied in the past. Melinda, a powerful sorceress, Seng, a cosmic monk, and Edred, a warrior elf. With distorted memories and their magical abilities weakened and fragmented, the trio must work together with help from their steam-powered robot, Copernicus, to unravel the mysteries of their pasts and present that will reveal their path to defeating a timeless threat.
While a lot of animated series like Rick and Morty and Bob’s Burgers kind of resort to keeping to a specific animation style, Unicorn comes off the bat with a fresh new animated look—something expected when it comes to an animator like Tartakovsky.
If you’re unfamiliar with his work, Tartakovsky is behind the kid-friendly hits like Dexter’s Laboratory and Hotel Transylvania; he also delivered the original animated Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Unicorn is expected to be just as impressive.
Watch out for new episodes of Unicorn: Warriors Eternal when they come out on Adult Swim and HBO Max on Thursdays.
