Samurai Jack creator Genndy Tartakovsky goes steampunk with Unicorn: Warriors Eternal

Storied animator and creator Genndy Tartakovsky has launched his next project – a new steampunk fantasy series called Unicorn: Warriors Eternal.

If you’re a fan of Tartakovsky’s previous works like Samurai Jack, Primal, and others you’ll probably love Unicorn: Warriors Eternal. The new steampunk actions series is focused on a new team of heroes.

The goal of this newly reawakened team of heroes is to fight an ominous force throughout all time. Due to the steampunk setting, it’s obvious they wake up in Victorian-era London.

“This show was created in my early days at Cartoon Network Studios more than 20 years ago,” Tartakovsky said in the press release. “All the projects we worked on — Dexter’s Laboratory, Samurai Jack, and Sym-Bionic Titan — were like a training ground getting us ready for this series. It took all of that time to finally be able to tackle a show like Unicorn Warriors Eternal.”

The best news of all is the first episode of Unicorn: Warriors Eternal is totally free right now on YouTube (below). All new episodes premiere Thursdays on Adult Swim at midnight, with replays on both Friday and Saturday, only to lastly end up on HBO Max on Sunday.

Here’s a brief blurb on the series, plus the first full episode:

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.
