Cartoon Network has released the first poster for Steven Universe: The Movie, based on its popular animated series of the same name.
The poster features the central characters of Steven (Zach Callison), Garnet (Estelle), Pearl (Deedee Magno) and Amethyst (Michaela Dietz) posing together on a cliff. Behind them is an ominous figure with an upside-down, heart-shaped gem on her chest. Fans got a first look at the mystery figure in the initial teaser for the Cartoon Network movie.
The release of the poster has increased speculation that the feature film will skip ahead a few years from the animated series, with evidence pointing to updated looks for Steven Universe and their beach house. The movie will be a musical with original songs by Rebecca Sugar, showrunner and creator of Steven Universe, along with Chance the Rapper, Estelle, Aimee Mann and more.
The official logline reads: “Steven thinks his time defending the Earth is over, but when a new threat comes to Beach City, Steven faces his biggest challenge yet.”
Steven Universe debuted on cartoon network in 2013 and follows the adventures of Steven Universe and the Crystal Gems Garnet, Amethyst and Pearl as they protect the inhabitants of Beach City, all while trying to understand the strange planet Earth around them and, evidently themselves.
Steven Universe: The Movie will debut on Cartoon Network later this year.
