"Adventure Time" could be moving from the TV screen to the big screen. According to a report in Deadline, Cartoon Network's hit animated series has inked a movie deal with Warner Bros. that could get it into theaters before you can say oh my glob.

For those who somehow haven't seen "Adventure Time," the series started with a short that went viral in 2007, and now is one of the top animated series on the Cartoon Network.

It follows the whimsical adventures of Finn, the last human, and Jake the magical dog, as they try to save the mythical land of Ooo from the likes of The Ice King and The Lich. The series has become so popular that it's attracted guest appearances from the likes of George Takei, Mark Hamill and Neil Patrick Harris.

The "Adventure Time" movie will be produced by a powerhouse team of Chris McKay and Roy Lee, the according to the Deadline report. McKay was a producer on 2014's hit animated movie "The Lego Movie," and has signed on to direct the upcoming "The Lego Batman Movie." Lee was also a producer on "The Lego Movie" as well as the popular "How to Train your Dragon" movies.

While Warner Bros. is said to head up the movie's production, Cartoon Network and Pendleton Ward, the creator of the series, will also be involved. We don't yet know when "Adventure Time" will make its way to theaters, but with a production crew this good, the movie will likely be worth the wait no matter how long it takes Finn, Jake, Princess Bubblegum and the rest of the crew to hit the big screen.
