All-new “Adventure Time” specials are coming to HBO Max. The special event is part of “Adventure Time: Distant Lands,” and they will premiere exclusively on HBO Max with the first two set to debut on the streamer in 2020. The new stories will continue the adventures of Finn and Jake, two best buds who traversed the mystical Land of Ooo and encountered its colorful inhabitants.
“The enchanted world of Adventure Time has mesmerized viewers and critics alike as Finn and Jake right wrongs and battle evil,” said Sarah Aubrey, head of original content, HBO Max. “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!'”
The first two specials, “BMO” and “Obsidian” are set to premiere in 2020 followed by “Wizard City” and “Together Again.” HBO Max released descriptions for the new adventures:
“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 was a groundbreaking series and a creative playground for so many talented creative artists,” said Rob Sorcher, Chief Content Officer, Cartoon Network Studios. “Producing Adventure Time: Distant Lands for HBO Max will allow our studio to explore this beloved world in an all-new format.”
