“We are thrilled to invite kids to unlock the magic along with us at Unicorn Academy,” said Jennifer Dodge, Spin Master’s President of Entertainment.
“Engaging characters, exciting stories, and of course, majestic unicorns with magical powers will captivate audiences of all ages. The diverse heroes from the original book series along with the powerful bond between rider and unicorn inspired us to create a vibrant, animated adaptation. Set in an enchanting world of magic and mystery, stories are brought to life with world-class animation, a cinematic score, and irresistible songs for an immersive entertainment experience.”
Max Rangel, Spin Master’s Global President and CEO, added: “Our team has done an amazing job of bringing the magic of Unicorn Academy across all play patterns.
