From the director of Madagascar comes Invasion!, a colorful VR animated short about a duo of aliens with grand ambitions to take over our world and destroy anyone who tries to stop them.

Review: The story goes that menacing aliens have come to take over the Earth and destroy anyone that tries to stop them. However, despite the Aliens’ superior technology and firepower, the citizens of Earth are able to rise up and defeat the invaders. But these citizens of Earth aren’t humans. Instead, they are two of the cutest, sweetest, cuddliest and meekest creatures of our planet — two adorable little white bunnies.



Verdict: This amazing VR animated series might only have one episode, but the quality of it is a foundation stone for many more VR stories to come. The characters are lovable (even the invading aliens) and the animation is super smooth. It’s no secret that we are fans of the short story here in the VR shop office, but if you are new to this genre of VR short films and animations this would be a great place to start. The good news is, you don’t need a gear VR to watch this, you can watch it right here on this page by playing the video below.
