The Adventure Time: Distant Lands specials were produced by Cartoon Network Studios and Frederator, but unlike the previous seasons, debuted on HBO Max, the video on demand service from WarnerMedia Entertainment. The Distant Lands specials have their origin during the production of the show’s tenth season. Because the show had had success with specials and miniseries in the past (such as Stakes), the writers started to pitch a number of stories that could be told in longer formats. Two big ideas that emerged during this time were storylines focusing on BMO in space, and another focusing on Marceline and Bubblegum’s relationship.
