Hey guys, this is a quick Poptropica and Adventure Time update. Lets start with Poptropica, shall we?
The Creators have been on a behind the scenes posting spree and it is awesome. Here are the newest images that haven’t been mentioned yet.
The first picture is a early version of Dr. Lange, from Virus Hunter Island.
The second is a draft of “new characters for the re-release of Shrink Ray.” Could this mean a new Shrink Ray mini game, an update for Shrink Shot, an update for the possibly upcoming SUI version of Shrink Ray Island, just new costumes, or something else? What do you guys think?
The third is a walk through of how this sleeping dog was animated, frame by frame. It is apparently for an “upcoming (and spooky) advertisement.” There is a creepy Lockwood & Co. ad out right now, but it doesn’t seem to be referring to that.
The forth picture is a sneak peek of an upcoming Poptropica Comic.
The fifth appears to have Jorge and Oliver (from the Poptropica Comics), plus some monkeys. Could these be costumes based off the story? An island idea? A sneak peek of the comics?
The sixth and last image shows early character designs for Arabian Nights Island.
Phew, that took longer than I thought it would! 🙂
There are also some more Land creations that the Creators thought were worth sharing. Note that Poptropica Land has been updated to include props and objects.
I really love the pink/blue castle. Nice creations guys! 😀
Now onto Adventure Time news. Cartoon Network wanted to share a cute collection of Princess Bubblegum’s different faces/expressions.
I personally like Comfy PB the best. What about you? 😛
Okay, in other news, you may have noticed that there hasn’t been a new episode of Adventure Time for many, many weeks. 😦 Because of this, I began to suspect that the season was over, without warning. As you may know, right now we are in the 6th season of the series (which started with the episode Wake Up on April 21). I did some research on the Adventure Time Wiki and here is what I came up with.
On July 25, 2014, the series was renewed for a seventh season. According to Tom Herpich and Steve Wolfhard, the staff started to pitch story lines in late September of 2014. According to storyboard artist Jesse Moynihan, production for the season will begin in October of 2014.
Don’t be fooled, this doesn’t mean the season will start in October. It just means that it starts getting made.
The most recent episode, Joshua and Margaret Investigations (August 14), was episode 16 Season 6. Most seasons have around 20 something episodes (aside from Season 5, which was a double season), so this season shouldn’t end just yet.
I also found that the next episode is called Ghost Fly and will air on October 28 (synopsis below).
Jake and the tree house are haunted by a vengeful specter.
Why such a long wait? I have no idea. At least episodes are back on. Other upcoming episodes include Evergreen, The Mountain, and Jake the Brick, however we do not know their air dates. Their synopses are below, in order.
A wizard of ice tries to create a crown that will grant the first wearer’s deepest wish in order to stop a deadly comet from wiping out all life on the planet.
^ Evergreen, which takes place before the Mushroom War AND Simony and Marcy. ^
Finn tries to help the Earl of Lemongrab become a better person, but then something unexpected happens.
^ The Mountain ^
The plot for Jake the Brick is unknown.
I hope this cleared up some confusion! 😉
P.S. To see the creation of the Milk Box Head (from the BTS pictures of Poptropica above) and more inside Poptropica videos, check out this playlist made by the Creators themselves! The Milk Box Head is the second video (at the moment).
