Genndy Tartakovsky is bringing his talents to HBO Max.
The WarnerMedia streaming service and Cartoon Network announced Wednesday they have comissioned Unicorn: Warriors Eternal, a new animated series from Tartakovsky. Described as a “fun yet mysterious character-based storytelling for kids, teens and parents alike,” it follows a team of ancient heroes protecting the world from a recurring ominous force. But when their reawakening comes too early, they find themselves in the bodies of teenagers. Their memories and the history of the unicorn over the centuries have been lost, with some of their magical abilities weakened and fragmented. Now, they must relearn everything while dealing with the pressures of being teenagers again.
“Twenty-five years ago Dexter’s Laboratory was Cartoon Network’s first original series. It launched an incredible creative relationship that continued to prosper throughout the years,” Tartakovsky said in a statement. “Today, I am so proud and honored to be able to create an animated series for HBO Max and Cartoon Network, and start a new relationship, fostering more bold and original storytelling. Unicorn: Warriors Eternal is going to be crazy cool and I can’t wait for people to see it!”
Unicorn: Warriors Eternal comes to HBO Max soon.
