Today, HBO Max and Cartoon Network released the first 4 minutes of upcoming animated special, “Aventure Time: Distant Lands,” and we needed this bit of magic. “Distant Lands” is the first of four animated releases based on “Adventure Time,” and it looks adorable.
Head of Original Content at HBO Max Sarah Aubrey said of the announcement:
“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!’”
From the original press release Cartoon Network shared about the four specials coming to HBO Max:
- 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.
“Adventure Time: Distant Lands” is set to hit HBO Max on June 25th 2020.
