Captain Marvel and Agent Fury are back together!

After the premiere of their big Marvel movie team-up, Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson join forces again in the first Unicorn Store trailer for Larson’s Netflix film, which marks her directorial feature debut.

Based on a script by Samantha McIntyre (TBS’ People of Earth), Unicorn Store — exploding with enough rainbows to fill a Lisa Frank pop-up store — stars the Oscar winner as Kit, a twentysomething dreamer reluctant to leave the safety net of her family and embrace adulthood. That change is thrust upon her after her rainbow creations don’t impress art school and she’s kicked out.

Forced to move back in with her parents and pick up a boring temp job, she encounters a mysterious salesman (a glittery Jackson), who offers to grant her heart’s desire: a unicorn! It’s a moment that reignites her childlike soul just as she’s about ready to act like an adult.

Her mom and dad (Joan Cusack, Bradley Whitford) think she’s crazy, especially when she says things like, you get unicorns from “the unicorn store.”

Mamoudou Athie (Sorry For Your Loss), Karan Soni (Deadpool 2), Ryan Hansen (Veronica Mars), and Annaleigh Ashford (The Assassination of Gianni Versace) also feature in the cast.


Unicorn Store will premiere on Netflix this April 5.
