"Unicorn Wars is about the devastation war brings, and Vázquez makes damn sure it’s an appropriately devastating experience." —Tasha Robinson, Polygon
“Unicorn Wars is violent, disturbing, morally ambiguous, and yet finds a way to dissect every level of the human emotion.” —Samuel Leggett Jr., JVS Media & Productions/Team JVS
This film is not suitable for children.
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 Aggressive, confident teddy bear Bluey and his sensitive, withdrawn brother Tubby could not be more different. As the rigors and humiliation of teddy bear bootcamp turn into 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.
