Over the last year, Steven Universe has blown up to magnificent proportions on Cartoon Network. It was confident enough in its long game to build a literal “universe” of well rounded characters, strong and more adult themes (as it fights against traditional gender and sexual binaries), and while somehow maintaining a perfect childlike, magical vibe. With nearly 70 episodes under its belt, I don’t blame you for not jumping in yet but you should.
While we wait for new episodes, here’s a video folks got during San Diego Comic Con. It’s an extended version of the show’s opening theme with a little tidbit of how Steven first ended up living with the Crystal Gems. The music is just one of the many reasons the show is one of my favorites in a decade, and I just can’t wait for more.
