SDCC 2019: ‘Steven Universe: The Movie’ Reveals Trailer, Date
Steven Universe is always a big hit at San Diego Comic-Con, and 2019 was no different.
Even though the last season of Steven Universe ended with a finale that pretty much tied everything up, the series was never going away. And at the panel this weekend during the convention, the team announced not only the date of Steven Universe: The Movie, but shared the trailer too.
And as expected, the movie does indeed jump ahead in time.
Along with revealing an older Steven, the film will feature new music from Rebecca Sugar, Estelle, Aivi and Surasshu, Chance the Rapper, James Fauntleroy, Aimee Mann, Ted Leo, Gallant, Macie Stewart, Jeff Liu, Jeff Ball, Mike Krol, Grant Henry, and Julian “Zorsy” Sanchez. All for one movie!
Though not quite clear just how much time has passed since the end of Season 5, Steven and the Crystal Gems have been piecing together the remnants of the various Diamond empires. But as always, a new enemy will eventually threaten earth.
The movie looks fun and follows the same light-hearted way of covering serious topics the series has always done since Rebecca Sugar and Cartoon Network debuted it back in 2013. Fans are hoping the movie leads to more Steven Universe, even if he is a bit older. We’ll have to wait and see.
Oh, and that date… Steven Universe: The Movie is set to air on Cartoon Network September 2nd.
