If you weren’t quite done with Jake the dog and Finn the human I have some really good news for you. There will now be four one hour specials coming to HBO Max in 2020. They are calling it Adventure Time: Distant Lands.
- BMO follows the lovable little robot from Adventure Time. When there’s a deadly space emergency in the farthest reaches of the galaxy, there’s only one hero to call, and it’s probably not BMO. Except that this time it is!
- Obsidian features Marceline & Princess Bubblegum as they journey to the imposing, beautiful Glass Kingdom—and deep into their tumultuous past—to prevent an earthshaking catastrophe.
- Wizard City follows Peppermint Butler, starting over at the beginning, as just another inexperienced Wizard School student. When mysterious events at the campus cast suspicion on Pep, and his checkered past, can he master the mystic arts in time to prove his innocence?
- Together Again brings Finn and Jake together again, to rediscover their brotherly bond and embark on the most important adventure of their lives.
Let’s look forward to this! There was mention of Pendleton Ward who created the series in the press release but there is no word on if he is actively working on the new specials. Cartoon Network is producing but it is unclear if the original team will be inking this new set of shows.
“The enchanted world of Adventure Time has mesmerized viewers and critics alike as Finn and Jake right wrongs and battle evil. The addition of these specials to the HBO Max kids and family programming lineup is sure to make kids everywhere say ‘Slam-bam-in-a-can!’”Sarah Aubrey, head of original content, HBO Max
