“Adventure Time: Distant Lands” Review by Suzanne 3/1/22
There was an animated children’s fantasy cartoon that ran on Cartoon Network for 8 seasons…so it was very successful. This series, “Distant Lands” are four hour-long specials that aired on HBO Max 2020-2021.
It is a very strange series, with a lot of oddball humor. If you’re an adult with a weird sense of humor, you’ll probably enjoy it as much as the kids do.
I have the Blu-ray version. There are no features or extras, which is a shame. I would have liked to have heard about the making of this special series. I’m sure the fans would have, too. Fortunately you can find plenty of behind-the-scenes videos on YouTube!
