On September 2, franchise creator Pendleton Ward and HBO Max are getting ready to take viewers down to "Wizard City" with the fourth and final chapter of Adventure Time: Distant Lands. Over at Wizard City, viewers get to follow along with Peppermint Butler as he starts over at the beginning: just another inexperienced Wizard School student. But 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? While you still have some time to get before you get an answer, HBO Max has released a sneak preview for the special to help get your dumpster fires of speculation raging as high as possible.
So for a look at Peppermint Butler's magical backstory and where their new future may take them, here's a look at a sneak preview for Adventure Time: Distant Lands "Wizard City":
Just because the final chapter of HBO Max's Adventure Time: Distant Lands is set to premiere next month doesn't mean the streaming service will be getting out of "Adventure Time" business any time soon. On Tuesday, HBO Max announced a series greenlight for Adventure Time: Fionna & Cake (working title). Produced by Cartoon Network Studios, the ten-episode series will explore the relationship between fearless sword-wielding adventurer Fionna & her magical best friend and talking cat, Cake, and the mysterious land of Ooo. Adam Muto will serve as showrunner & executive producer. With the help of former Ice King, Simon Petrikov, Fionna and Cake embark on a multiverse-hopping adventure and journey of self-discovery. All the while a powerful new antagonist determined to track them down & erase them from existence lurks in the shadows.
"'Adventure Time' truly broke the mold and earned legions of passionate fans in the process," said Billy Wee, SVP, Comedy and Original Animation, HBO Max. "We are thrilled to partner with our friends at Cartoon Network Studios to continue innovating and expanding the Adventure Time universe with this world-class team." Sam Register, President, Warner Bros. Animation and Cartoon Network Studios added, "'Adventure Time' broke boundaries and was a shining example of how impactful animated storytelling can be. We are excited to partner with HBO Max to carry that tradition on to new heights, lands, and magical worlds." The new animated series serves as a follow-up to the streaming service's four-chapter, critically acclaimed, one-hour original specials, Adventure Time: Distant Lands (with the fourth and final special "Wizard City" set to hit HBO Max this fall).
