The next installment to “Adventure Time: Distant Lands” is called “Obsidian.” The network teased, “Marceline and Princess Bubblegum journey to the imposing, beautiful Glass Kingdom – and deep into their tumultuous past – to prevent an earthshaking catastrophe.”
The virtual didn’t set a premiere date for “Adventure Time: Distant Lands,” but did say the new installment is “coming soon.” The new chapter will explore the relationship between Princess Bubblegum and Marceline, and introduce viewers to an all new place.

As we reported earlier, “Infinite Train” is moving to HBO Max for “Infinite Train: Book 3.” The third installment’s description reads, “Grace and Simon are the leaders of the Apex, an anarchic group of kids on a mysterious train. During one of their destructive missions, Grace and Simon get separated from the rest of the Apex and must find their way back. As the duo navigate through the myriad worlds of the train, they meet Hazel, an optimistic young girl, and Tuba, her gentle gorilla companion. Will Grace and Simon find new inspiration in Hazel’s innocence, or will the ways of the Apex recruit yet another aboard the train?”
The next chapter, which has the subtitle “Cult of the Conductor,” is scheduled to premiere on August 13th.

The series description adds, “Tig n’ Seek follows an upbeat and eccentric 8-year-old boy named Tiggy and his cat, Gweeseek. Tiggy not only works at the Department of Lost and Found, finding lost items all throughout Wee-Gee City, he lives there too!

The final trailer was for “Summer Camp Island,” the animated series created by Julia Pott. The show is based on Pott’s short that screened at the Sundance Film Festival, Tribeca Film Festival, and SXSW. The description reads, “The series follows best friends Oscar and Hedgehog as they learn that their camp is on a magical island, and that instead of making potholders–they’ll be making friends with monsters and yetis. The counselors? Well, they’re witches. And the cabins? Those were built by aliens. The moon? OK, it is the same ‘ole moon, but here, he talks. As Oscar and Hedgehog spend their summer days having strange encounters with mystical creatures, they begin to discover their own magical potentials.”
