'Adventure Time: Distant Lands': When will Episode 2 release on HBO Max? Here's what we expect from 'Obsidian'
There couldn't have been a better year for 'Adventure Time' to make a comeback. In all the gloom of 2020, the news of 'Adventure Time: Distant Lands', a four-part series special brought much cheer to the fans of the original show, 'Adventure Time'. Although the first episode 'BMO' aired on Thursday, June 25, the details on the release date of the second episode 'Obsidian' are still rather unclear as HBO Max is yet to announce the new date. Though we don't know much about the details, here's the official synopsis for the episode: "Princess Bubblegum and Marceline the Vampire Queen meditate on their relationship while out on a mission to the Glass Kingdom."
Each of the hour-long specials focuses on a character as they explore the Land Of Ooo. Episode 3 titled 'Wizard City' focuses on Peppermint Butler. Just after Pep enrolls in Magic School to relearn magic, he is expelled after being blamed for mysterious circumstances happening around the campus. He will have to relearn magic to clear his name. Meanwhile, Episode 4 titled 'Together Again' is the conclusion and revolves around Jake the Dog and Finn the Human, who will reunite once more to take on their biggest quest until date. It remains to be seen if they will rediscover their brotherly bond along the way. The release dates for these episodes have not been announced yet.
As of yet, only 'BMO' has released. In the episode, the cute little robot finds itself thrown to the farthest end of the galaxy after a catastrophic space emergency. It lands in a rather battered alien world, that is on the verge of extinction soon. It wears a Sheriff's hat and goes on this bizarre quest, and decides to help the citizens. Along the way, we are introduced to another protagonist named Y4, a rabbit humanoid who becomes close to BMO and risks being estranged from its people by following BMO wherever it goes. At the end of the episode, BMO returns to that old treehouse, and sees a different version of Finn and Jake, from the one we remember, thus serves as a prequel to all the adventures.
Catch the first episode, which is streaming on HBO Max.
