Unicorn Wars is the latest twisted film by Alberto Vazquez (Bird Boy, Decorado). It’s great to see hand drawn animation being pushed into delivering a vision that is equally beautiful and disturbing. If Unicorn Wars makes a splash Alberto Vazquez may become a pivotal figure in the mature animation movement.
Teddy bears and unicorns have been at war since time immemorial. Pooh soldier Celestin covets the blood of unicorns to be eternally beautiful, as predicted by the sacred book of the new religion. His brother Bouboule is not made for war. He is unsure of himself, obsessed with food and only wants to be loved by his brother. The cubs regiment leaves the training camp for a mission that will trigger the terrible final battle.
