Among other animated shows, HBO Max has canceled The Amazing World of Gumball Movie and Merry Little Batman. TVLine says that HBO Max has dropped six animated projects, including a movie based on the Cartoon Network show The Amazing World of Gumball by the show’s creator, Ben Bocquelet, and Shane Mack, as well as a holiday movie about a young Damian Wayne directed by Mike Roth and written by Morgan Evans. Even though the six projects, most of which were made by Warner Bros. Animation, will no longer be available on HBO Max, they are all being shopped to other outlets.
The Amazing World of Gumball Movie is based on the Cartoon Network show of the same name. It was announced in February 2021. The movie is meant to bridge the gap between the original show, which ran for six seasons on Cartoon Network from 2011 to 2016, and a new show called Amazing World of Gumball: The Series, which will air on HBO Max. At the time this was written, the new show was still going to start on HBO Max.
The Day the Earth Blew Up: A Looney Tunes Movie, written by Kevin Costello; Bye Bye Bunny: A Looney Tunes Musical, with a screenplay and lyrics by Ariel Dumas; Did I Do That to the Holidays: A Steve Urkel Story, an animated musical holiday special from Wyatt Cenac in which Jaleel White plays his Family Matters character again; and Batman: Caped Crusader, from Batman: The Animated Series co-cre

This is just the latest in a long line of cuts to HBO Max. The streaming service recently got rid of 36 titles. A Warner Bros. Discovery representative said that this decision was made because of plans to merge HBO Max and Discovery+. “As we work on putting all of our content on one platform, we will make changes to the content available on both HBO Max and discovery+… This means that some content will have to be taken off of both platforms “In a statement, HBO Max said.
Warner Bros. and Discovery joined forces in April, which led to layoffs, the removal of Warner Bros. titles from the streaming service, and the cancellation of upcoming HBO Max exclusives like Batgirl. Warner Bros. Discovery’s president and CEO, David Zaslav, has said that the company wants to add more “content” and “quality” to HBO Max’s library as a whole.
“[Chief Content Officer] Casey Bloys and that team are giving us quality,” Zaslav said. “It’s the best group in its field. We are putting more money behind that HBO team. All of them have signed contracts, and we’ll spend a lot more this year and next than we did last year and the year before.”
