Brie Larson stars in the film, along with her Captain Marvel co-star Samuel L. Jackson.

The kooky comedy directed by — and starring— the Captain Marvel actress premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2017. Now it’s coming to Netflix in April, right before Larson’s next superhero outing in Avengers: Endgame.

After failing out of art school, whimsical would-be painter Kit takes a temp job in a boring PR agency, and moves back in with her parents.

As she’s struggling to figure out adult life, she receives an invitation to a mysterious store, where salesman Samuel L. Jackson — in a bright pink suit — tells her, “We sell what you need.”

He offers Kit what she’s always wanted — a unicorn. But first, she must prove herself.

Unicorn Store was written by Samantha McIntyre. Larson also produced along with David Bernad, Ruben Fleischer, Lynette Howell Taylor, Paris Kasidokostas-Latsis, and Terry Douglas.

McIntyre, Jean-Luc De Fanti, Nathan Kelly, and Anne Woodward served as executive producers.

Unicorn Store premieres on Netflix on April 5.
