A New Adventure Dawns with HBO MAX and Cartoon Network Studios

The beloved animated series Adventure Time (2010-18) is getting a new lease on life: returning with a series of movie spinoffs, the characters will star in new adventures that promise to be as emotionally complex and delightfully silly as the storybook show they began in. HBO Max and Cartoon Network Studios announced on 8 April that they have acquired an ambitious new franchise for Adventure Time. The show’s creator Pendleton Ward and his writing partner and executive producer Adam Muto have created a new library for the series, which will include shorts, miniseries, TV specials and – of course – movies produced by Warner Bros’ Cartoon Network Studios in association with Cartoon Network and HBO Max. The new story universe will be overseen by a new creative lead, Rebecca Sugar.

Adam Muto is a legend in his own right, spearheading the rare design aesthetic in Adventure Time, where the enchanted backgrounds and quirky characters are as imaginative as they are inspiring. And he’ll be working alongside Rebecca Sugar, a genius in her own right – she designed Ice King on Adventure Time, and created her own universe, Steven Universe, an epic story about a boy, his magical future-ghost dog, and all the moreZING!

Even though the details of the narratives in Adventure Time’s new films are still under wraps, the involvement of Muto and Sugar suggests there will be plenty of new places and new characters in the Adventure Time universe, as well as new, off-screen adventures for Marceline and Finn. We can only hope they’ve kept their whimsy, their humour and, most importantly, their heart.
