Previously Announced Special Episode Based on the Hit Game to Premiere Friday, July 20 with New Funko Product Line

Cartoon Network and Mojang revealed new components of the Adventure Time Minecraft Mashup partnership today including the premiere date and a sneak peek of the new special episode and a line of consumer products including Funko Pop! Vinyl figures and apparel. The 11-minute episode and limited-edition product line are based off the highly successful mashup launched last summer by Minecraft on console, PC and mobile. 
 
Set to air on Friday, July 20th, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. (ET/PT) on Cartoon Network, followed by international markets shortly after, this special episode titled Diamonds and Lemons features Finn and his friends experiencing setbacks and creative triumphs in a fantastic new vision of Ooo. The episode will be available for streaming on the Cartoon Network app, for authenticated cable subscribers, and on VOD following the linear premiere.

Adventure Time fans and the Minecraft community were delighted when voice cast Jeremy Shada (Finn) and Olivia Olson (Marceline) presented a special first look at the episode last November during MINECON Earth. Today, a full clip from the mashup episode was released. 

Cartoon Network and Mojang have also expanded the Adventure Time Minecraft partnership to include a limited-edition consumer products collection arriving to retail this August:

  • Funko will release POP! Vinyl figures based on Minecraft’s mashup version of beloved Adventure Time characters Finn, Jake, Marceline, and Princess Bubblegum. 
  • Additionally, Funko will release three separate t-shirt designs featuring artwork from the mashup exclusively for Journey’s Kidz. 

Adventure Time, Cartoon Network’s Peabody and Emmy Award-winning original animated series features unlikely heroes Finn and Jake, buddies who traverse the mystical Land of Ooo and encounter its colorful inhabitants. The best of friends, our heroes always find themselves in the middle of heart-pounding escapades. Finn, a silly kid with an awesome hat and Jake, a brassy dog with a big kind heart, depend on each other through thick and thin. Adventure Time is created by Pendleton Ward and produced at Cartoon Network Studios.
