Last year at San Diego Comic-Con, Steven Universe‘s fearless leader Rebecca Sugar announced Steven Universe The Movie. This year at the convention, the showrunner unveiled its first trailer.
Cartoon Network’s TV movie, which will premiere this year before hitting DVD and Blu-ray, picks up with Steven (voiced by Zach Callison) and the Gem defenders two years in the future — where Steven has a neck! That little tidbit was revealed in Entertainment Weekly‘s exclusive first look at the poster, which also unveiled the shadowy threat descending upon Beach City.
Also announced during the Comic-Con panel with Sugar’s crew was the official premiere date: Sep. 2 on Cartoon Network.
Garnet (Estelle), Pearl (Deedee Magno), and Amethyst (Michaela Dietz) return for the feature, as well as a host of characters: Yellow Diamond (Patti LuPone), Bismuth (Uzo Aduba), White Diamond (Christine Ebersole), Blue Diamond (Lisa Hannigan), Peridot (Shelby Rabara), Sapphire (Erica Luttrell), Ruby (Charlyne Yi), Connie Maheswaran (Grace Role), Sadie (Kate Micucci), Lars (Matthew Boy), and Nanefua Pizza (Toks Olagundoye).
During the panel, Sugar and some of the cast performed for the crowd, including “True Kinda Love” from the movie.
Steven Universe The Movie is also a musical, with original songs from Sugar in collaboration with Chance The Rapper, LuPone, Estelle, Aduba, Gallant, Aimee Mann, and more.
