Adventure Time has just made history by being the first Cartoon Network show to be picked up for a seventh season! The show’s Comic-Con panel was the usual mixture of animation sneak peeks, virtuosic voice acting, and occasional bursts into song. Check out the highlights below!
Justin Roiland declared Lemongrab a complex, messed up guy, and gave the audience an “UNACCEPTABLE!” Jessica DiCicco (Flame Princess) told the audience she was proud to play a strong, independent female character. Olivia Olson and Tom Kenny teased Marcie and Ice King’s upcoming storylines. Will the Ice King’s memory come back? Plus, they showed a Princess Day sneak peek:
And we’re getting an episode about Jake’s parents, pre-Jake! I’m sure that’ll answer some questions…
The last animatic teased an episode that goes far into the past… before even the Mushroom War! Then they opened up for audience Q&A, so from here, there may be spoilers as they answer questions. Be warned!
- Asked if they’d ever do a live action episode, John DiMaggio expressed doubts about wanting to wear a human-sized Jake suit.
- However, the team does want to do a stop motion episode, so that may be something to look forward to…
- Gunter’s cat is apparently still under Ice King’s recliner.
- We might learn more about the origin (and dark powers) of Peppermint Butler.
- Olivia Olson enjoyed “battling to the death” with he real-life father, who plays Marcie’s dad.
- She’ll also appear in the upcoming Princess Day episode!
- And finally, Olivia & Jeremy Shada sang “Daddy, Why Did You Eat My Fries.”
Oh, and NEPTR showed up, too!
