Fans of Hanna-Barbera’s 1968 The Banana Splits Adventure Hour variety program have an R-rated film to look forward to. The Banana Splits Movie will be available on Digital come August 13, 2019, and on Blu-ray as well as DVD come August 27, 2019! I’m so here for it!

Courtesy of Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, the Digital version of The Banana Splits Movie will be priced at $19.99 SRP, the Blu-ray Combo Pack at $24.98, and DVD at $19.98 SRP.

Here’s the official description:

The Banana Splits Movie will offer a new take on the classic characters. The film follows a boy named Harley and his family as they go to a taping of The Banana Splits TV show, which is supposed to be a fun-filled birthday for young Harley. But things take an unexpected turn — and the body count quickly rises. Can Harley, his mom and their new pals safely escape?

Do watch the trailer!

Get nostalgic and horrified all at the same time while watching the trippy 60’s characters in this all-new tale about fear, power, and an oversized puppet rock-band,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, WBHE, Vice President, TV Marketing, Family & Animation. “The Banana Splits Movie is a throwback to a fanatical children’s series with a horror-genre twist — and we can’t wait for the band to get back together for a new generation of fans!”

The upcoming film stars Dani Kind (Wynonna Earp) as Beth, Finlay Wojtak-Hissong (The Kindness of Strangers) as Harley, Romeo Carere as Austin, Steve Lund (Schitt’s Creek) as Mitch, and Sara Canning (The Vampire Diaries) as Rebecca.

The “beloved” Bingo, Fleegle, Snorky and Drooper are voiced by Eric Bauza (Looney Tunes Cartoons, Woody Woodpecker, UniKitty!).

This project has been written by Jed Elinoff & Scott Thomas (Raven’s Home) and directed by Danishka Esterhazy. The music is by Patrick Stumph.

It has been produced by Blue Ribbon Content in association with Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and Syfy.

Take note, The Banana Splits Movie will make its broadcast debut on Syfy later this year.

The DVD Special Features include:

  • Banana Splits: Behind the Horror

The Digital and Blu-ray Combo Pack Special Features are:

  • Banana Splits: Behind the Horror
  • Terror on Set
