An alien world stands on the brink of destruction. All hope seems to be lost. That is, until Adventure Time’s handheld video game console arrives to save the day.
A new trailer has arrived for the first episode in the Adventure Time: Distant Lands limited series on HBO Max, which stars the wacky and appropriately overconfident BMO on an journey into the farthest reaches of space. They find themselves on a distant planet/space station, which is on the brink of war, ecological disaster, and who knows what else. Will they be able to be the hero everyone needs? I mean, duh, it’s BMO.
“BMO” is the first of four hour-long Adventure Time: Distant Lands episodes that will make their debut on HBO Max, two years after the series ended in 2018. This one will be followed by “Obsidian,” which stars Marceline and Princess Bubblegum on a mission to save the Glass Kingdom. We’re also anticipating a prequel story about Peppermint Butler, as well as a Finn and Jake reunion episode appropriately titled “Together Again.”
HBO Max has not revealed a release date for “BMO” or any of the other special episodes, but noted that it’s “coming soon.” HBO Max itself launches May 27 in certain regions.
Editor’s Note: HBO Max’s content appears to be bound for Foxtel in Australia, so it’s likely we’ll see Adventure Time: Distant Lands pop up on this platform locally. No release date has been confirmed.
