Four new Adventure Time specials coming exclusively to HBO Max
HBO Max, WarnerMedia’s upcoming streaming service (not to be confused with Apple’s upcoming streaming service or Disney’s upcoming streaming service or NBC’s upcoming streaming service) will be the exclusive home of not one, not two, but four Adventure Time specials.
Earlier this month, HBO Max delighted animation fans with the announcement that it would host all the Studio Ghibli movies. The addition of new Adventure Time content marks another push into the family-friendly territory that Disney Plus is currently boasting itself on.
The critically acclaimed Cartoon Network show wrapped up its final season last year. The four specials, wrapped up in a package entitled Adventure Time: Distant Lands, will each be an hour long and revisit the iconic characters. The first two — entitled BMO and Obsidian — will launch with the platform in 2020, with the other two — Wizard City and Together Again — premiering sometime later.
The official descriptions for the specials are as follows:
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.
