HBO Max, Warner’s other streaming service to come, recently announced that they have acquired the streaming rights to the coveted Ghibli series of films for their service. Well, it looks like that is not HBO Max’s only announcement on the animation front as today they have announced that they have new Adventure Time animated specials on the way.
The surreal journey of Finn and Jake ran for 10 seasons (2010-2018) on Cartoon Network, then continued in comic form. Starting in 2020, four new Adventure Time specials will stream under the banner of Adventure Time: Distant Lands. Here’s a rundown of the specials:
- 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.
Streaming dates are to be determined still, as a launch date for HBO MAX itself hasn’t been announced yet…
