We just chatted about in an article, the huge library of Study Ghibli coming to the HBO streaming service. Well WarnerMedia’s HBO Max has cemented another deal. The streaming service will be the exclusive place for four new Adventure Time Specials.
In an article by Variety, “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 at HBO Max in a statement. “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 specials will have familiar characters, such as Finn and Jake, as well as BMO, Marceline, Princess Bubblegum and Peppermint Butler, among others. The first two specials, BMO and Obsidian, will start streaming sometime next year, with the final two, Wizard City and Together Again, coming at a time yet to be officially announced. Each one will be an hour long. The series ended last year after 10 seasons. Adventure Time was a groundbreaking series and a creative playground for so many talented creative artists,” added 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.
The first two specials will be called “BMO” and “Obsidian,” with the former following the lovable little robot from “Adventure Time,” and the latter featuring Marceline & Princess Bubblegum as they journey to the imposing, beautiful Glass Kingdom to prevent an earthshaking catastrophe. “Wizard City,” which follows Peppermint Butler starting over at the beginning as just another inexperienced Wizard School student, and “Together Again,” which brings Finn and Jake together again to rediscover their brotherly bond and embark on the most important adventure of their lives, will premiere at a later date.
