It’s attainable, at this level, that Aqua Teen Starvation Drive (or Aqua Unit Patrol Squad 1, or Aqua TV Present Present, or no matter sequence creators Dave Willis and Matt Maiellaro are calling it this week) will merely by no means die, its explicit breed of semi-sensical animated chaos as unkillable as its snack-food based mostly “heroes.” Even so, there’s one thing good about seeing the sequence—which quietly returned (as “Aquadonk Aspect Items”) earlier this 12 months on YouTube, 7 years after being abruptly canceled by Grownup Swim—again in one thing approaching big-budget splendor immediately, when Warner Bros. launched the primary trailer for the franchise’s direct-to-video film Aqua Teen Eternally: Plantasm.
And, look: We may attempt to augur out what the plot right here is—some sort of “getting the gang again collectively” story about Meatwad, Frylock, and Grasp Shake (nonetheless Willis, Carey Means, and the irreplaceable Dana Snyder) teaming again up to kill some evil sentient vegetation, whereas additionally moving into enterprise with an evil Jeff Bezos/Elon Musk kind. However you recognize, and we all know, that the story right here isn’t really going to matter; it’s simply going to be an excuse for a sequence of very humorous anti-climaxes, screw-ups, and horrible issues taking place to the trio’s hapless, terrible neighbor, Carl. Even so: It’s good to see the boys tearing round, blowing stuff up, and usually leaving the world a a lot, a lot worse place than they discovered it.
Aqua Teen Eternally: Plantasm (the sequence’ second movie, after Aqua Teen Starvation Drive Colon Film Movie For Theaters which, sure, really did get a bona fide theatrical run means again in 2007) will probably be obtainable for buy on digital, 4K, and Blu-Ray on November eighth; it was beforehand introduced that the movie would ultimately make its means over to HBO Max (though that was earlier than the latest troubles with the service’s animation efforts, so hey, who is aware of).
