Preview: Masaaki Yuasa-Directed ‘Adventure Time’ Episode

The most fascinating bit of news out of WonderCon last weekend? Japanese director Masaaki Yuasa (Mind Game, Kaiba) has storyboarded and directed an upcoming episode of Adventure Time. According to Wondercon reports, Yuasa was given free reign to make a self-contained episode and didn’t receive any oversight from Adventure Time’s regular Burbank crew. This is the synopsis for Yuasa’s episode, entitled “Food Chain”:

On a field trip to the Candy Kingdom Museum of Natural History, Finn and Jake learn about the Food Chain by becoming the food chain!

A 3-minute preview of the episode is below. Here on Cartoon Brew, we are recapping Yuasa’s new TV series Ping Pong, too.
