This week’s Stevenbomb of new Steven Universe episodes dropped without a clever name alluding to its overarching theme and, in a way, that was the perfect move because things are changing in Beach City. For everyone.
Steven Universe returns with a five-night run of new episodes on May 8, but for those who can’t wait that long to get a glimpse of the Crystal Gems... here’s some excellent cosplay that made my heart soar.
We’re living in a golden age of clever animated shows focused on the adventures young kids doing what kids do best: defeating magical monsters and solving mysteries. As great Steven Universe and the Gravity Falls twins are on their own, though, haven’t you ever wondered what would happen if they teamed up?
One of the many things that makes Steven Universe great is its use of music—from the catchy, chiptunes-infused score to the many songs that play an important part in the show’s style and storytelling. Fans have been requesting an official soundtrack for the show for ages; now, at long last, their prayers have been…
In 2015 Cartoon Network Games and developer Grumpyface Studios released Steven Universe: Attack the Light, one of the best mobile role-playing games ever. This summer they’re back and on game consoles with Steven Universe: Save the Light.
Steven Universe bent the laws of time and space in this week’s “Out of This World” miniseries. Not only to test how strong the bonds of love between Steven and the Gems actually are—obviously, their love is indestructible—but to explore all sorts of families, loving and functional, traditional and non-traditional,…
Next week, we’re getting a load of new Steven Universe episodes—episodes promising some pretty big reveals for Steven and the Crystal Gems. But fans of the show are used to huge dumps of episodes and nothing for months when it comes to Steven Universe. Thankfully, that doesn’t appear to be the case this time.
Music is Steven Universe’s secret weapon—mainly because the show consistently cranks out some great, toe-tapping songs that are a highlight every time they show up. But the show’s musical excellence extends beyond its ability to offer a good tune: it connects music to characters in some profound, interesting ways.
The wax and wane of Steven Universe being on air is part and parcel of loving the show—you never know how long it’s going to be on for, when it’s going to go away again, and for how long you’ll be itching for a new set of episodes. Well, the good news is: we know that there’s more on the way very soon.
Unlike pretty much everything else, science fiction and fantasy had a great 2016. There were so many great shows that we had a lot of contenders for our best list, and only a few for our worst, so we ended up with twice as many TV series to acclaim as disparage. After a fair amount of debate, here’s the best of the…
October is National Bullying Prevention month, and as part of their seventh annual initiative to promote awareness, Cartoon Network has announced that it’s recruiting some of its most beloved shows for a month-long block of special episodes to encourage kids to stand up to bullying.
Anyone who has ever had a pet knows the inevitable will happen, and that the circle of life is cruel and unavoidable. But when a dog, cat, horse, or other creature dies in a genre movie, the circumstances are often shaped by bizarre forces—supernatural, weird-science, and otherwise—that make a tragic loss even worse.…
Aside from its thematic strengths and its delightful characters, if there’s one thing Steven Universe is known for, it’s having a killer soundtrack, jam-packed with powerful, toe-tapping songs. Last night’s episode was no exception, with a chill track that rivals some of the show’s very best musical moments.
It’s Steven Universe meets Adventure Time meets The Amazing World of Gumball meets The Regular Show meets Clarence meets Uncle Grandpa. Basically Cartoon Network: Battle Crashers is a whole lot of meeting followed by a whole lot of hitting.
Steven Universe storyboard artist Lauren Zuke has left Twitter and deleted her account after days of harassment from an aggressive subsection of Steven Universe fans.
For the first few weeks of Steven Universe’s “Summer of Steven,” we took a break from the show’s recent trend of worldbuilding-heavy plot arcs for some lighthearted downtime in Beach City. This week kicked the show back into high gear, though—especially with last night’s incredible episode.
One of the greatest things about Steven Universe—a series with many great things to its name—is its catchy soundtrack, whether that’s its chiptunes-infused instrumentals or its repertoire of heartwarming songs. And one of the upcoming episodes of the season is going to be jam-packed with them.
There are two sides to Steven Universe’s addictive brilliance: One is its deft, deep character-driven storytelling and masterful slow burn approach to its worldbuilding and lore.
