It's been seven years since the Aqua Teen Hunter Force aired on Adult Swim, but in just a few month Frylock, Master Shake, Meatwad, and their perverted neighbor Carl will return to the small screen in the direct-to-video movie Aqua Teen Forever: Plantasm. After previously releasing a first look clip back in August, Warner Bros. Entertainment has finally unleashed a full-blown trailer.
Set to an original theme song performed by Run the Jewels, the trailer teases a sci-fi adventure in which our favorite rascals take on the corporate overlord, Amazin. Aqua Teen Forever: Plantasm is said to be a sequel of the film Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film For Theaters, which released back in 2007.
Aqua Teen Forever: Plantasm features everyone’s favorite rascals, the Aqua Teens: the brainy Frylock, the mouthy Master Shake, the loveable Meatwad, and everyone’s favorite perverted neighbor, Carl, as they split up then get back together to fight everyone’s favorite corporate overlord, Amazin, led by everyone’s favorite tech mogul, Neil (voiced by everyone’s favorite Peter Serafinowicz) and his trusty scientist sidekick, Elmer (Paul Walter Hauser, who is everyone’s favorite).
Aqua Teen Forever: Plantasm stars Carey Means as Frylock, Dana Snyder as Master Shake, and co-creator Dave Willis as Meatwad. The film also features Peter Serafinowicz (The Tick), Paul Walter Hauser (Black Bird), Natasha Rothwell (White Lotus), Robert Smigel (Bob’s Burgers) and Tim Robinson (Detroiters). The movie was written and directed by series creators Dave Willis and Matt Maiellaro.
Aqua Teen Hunger Force had the honor of being Adult Swim's longest-running series until Robot Chicken claimed the title in 2019. Series co-creator and executive producer Dave Willis had this to say at the time of the movie's announcement:
“Maiellaro and I are excited to finally bring book IIV of the Aqua Teen Plantasm series to the big screen that is little and inside your house. It’s funny and entertaining and it has colorful drawings that move about in a rapid fashion, but not so rapid as to cause seizures. Luxuriate your eyes in our updated animation! Revel in the mature themes and coherent storytelling! This is not your grandad’s Aqua Teen! Also, this movie has no superheroes in it. That is the Aqua Teen Hunger Force guarantee: no superheroes! No star war stuff either. If you’re looking for a star war or a yoda, this is probably not the movie for you. Do you doubt me? Watch the movie. And if you don’t like it, you have no taste and your “hot take" is not one to be trusted. I just trolled you, son. Now tweet @adultswim with your pointless rage. Bring the thunder!”
Aqua Teen Forever: Plantasm will release on Digital, 4K Ultra HD & Blu-ray on November 8, 2022. The 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack is priced at $39.99 while you can get the Blu-ray for $29.98. The movie will also be available on Movies Anywhere.
If you want to wait a bit longer, Aqua Teen Forever: Plantasm will stream on HBO Max and air on Adult Swim in 2023.
