'Unicorn: Warriors Eternal' Now Streaming on MAX & Adult Swim

Unicorn: Warriors Eternal  features striking fantasy animation from Genndy Tartakovsky underscored with epic musical themes by Joanne Higginbottom — as we follow a group of heroes who are reborn throughout time and awaken as teenagers in 1890s steampunk London.

Set amongst the backdrop of an evil force looming across the smoggy streets of London, the first episode includes a powerful scene that introduces us to Melinda's grand theme. Joanne took particular care scoring this scene to complement the profound inner power-struggle that follows Melinda throughout the series; this is the first of many times the melody will be reprised through Melinda's story arc in Season One.
