“The Banana Splits Movie” comes to Blu-ray August


The 2019 horror/comedy The Banana Splits Movie is officially coming to Blu-ray Disc on August 27th via Warner. Yes, those loveable Hanna-Barbera children’s TV show characters are back and they’re edgy this time; like I mean, they’re really edgy. The film (rated R), directed by Danishka Esterhazy, stars Finlay Wojtak-Hissong, Dani Kind, Romeo Carere, Steve Lund, and Sara Canning. This movie is also set to air at some point also on the SyFy TV network, although that remains to be announced. So, it just seems it’s pretty much a direct-to-video premiere for this movie. Hell, I’m surprised it exists!!

The tech specs for the release have not yet been detailed but you can very likely expect 1080p HD video and some form of perhaps lossless 5.1 sound — although that is yet to be confirmed. The Blu-ray release will come in the form of a “combo pack” (certainly NOT for the whole family) with a DVD and digital copy of the film included. You can now find the film on Blu-ray Disc available to pre-order over at Amazon. Bonus materials set to be included on the release are listed below.

  • Banana Splits: Behind the Horror
  • Terror on Set
  • Breaking News! The Banana Splits Massacre

Some further details about the release can be found below but first and foremost you’ll find the jaw-dropping trailer for the film. Be warned and most of all enjoy this below, after the break.


Lastly, yes, this is real. You aren’t having a weird nightmare or in “The Twilight Zone” or something. If all of that isn’t proof enough, here’s the IMDb listing for the film.

That’s 2019 for you.
