Last Updated on August 5, 2021

A week or so ago, we let you guys know that Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and Syfy's THE BANANA SPLITS horror movie has been slapped with an R-rating by the MPAA for "horror violence and gore," and the movie's trailer recently released trailer (which you can check out below) proved it. And today we have word on just when the hell you'll be able to snag a copy of the movie on Blu-ray! While the movie is to debut on SyFy sometime later this year, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will be bringing us the movie on Digital and on Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD this August.

You can check out the trailer below along with the Blu-ray cover art.

The trippy characters were introduced back in 1968 as the anthropomorphic hosts of The Banana Splits Adventure Hour variety program. The group featured a lion, a beagle, an elephant, and an orange gorilla. Here's the official synopsis for the upcoming horror thriller:

A boy named Harley and his family (brother Austin, mother Beth, and father Mitch) attends a taping of The Banana Splits TV show, which is supposed to be a fun-filled birthday for young Harley and business as usual for Rebecca, the producer of the series. But things take an unexpected turn — and the body count quickly rises. Can Harley, his mom and their new pals safely escape?

The revival stars Dani Kind (WYNONNA EARP) as Beth, Finlay Wojtak-Hissong (THE KINDNESS OF STRANGERS), Romeo Carere as Austin, Steve Lund (SCHITT'S CREEK) as Mitch and Sara Canning (THE VAMPIRE DIARIES) as Rebecca. Danishka Esterhazy (LEVEL 16) is directing from a script by Jed Elinoff & Scott Thomas (RAVEN'S HOME). Blue Ribbon Content is producing in association with Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and SYFY.

The Banana Splits Adventure Hour characters were originally created by the Krofft Brothers for Hanna-Barbera, which produced 31 episodes of the show that originally aired from 1968-70. Warner Bros. Home Entertainment brings you The Banana Splits Movie on Digital on August 13, and on Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD on August 27, 2019. The movie will debut on SYFY later this year.
