Steven Universe Future teaser: First look at new limited series
Cartoon Network has released the official trailer and opening credits for the forthcoming Steven Universe limited series titled Steven Universe Future, which will serve as an epilogue to the popular animated series that concluded its five-season run earlier this year. The sequel series also comes after the release of Steven Universe: The Movie, which premiered last September 2. Check out the video in the player below!
“Future is extremely meaningful to me because it’s a story we can only tell now, after the events of the original show, and the events of the movie,” creator Rebecca Sugar said in a statement. “This limited series is, for many of us who have been with the crew since the very beginning, our chance to reflect and to give the last few pieces of the puzzle we’ve been designing since 2012. But it’s also our chance to look forward, to work with new artists and writers and feature their voices within the Steven Universe universe. I’m so grateful to the team that came together on Future, and so excited for the world to see what’s next for Steven Universe.”
In Steven Universe Future, After saving the universe, Steven is still at it, tying up every loose end. But as he runs out of other people’s problems to solve, he’ll finally have to face his own. Haunted by the past and lost in the present, Steven begins manifesting new, uncontrollable powers that the Crystal Gems have never seen from him before. What does it all mean, and what does Steven want for his future?
Steven Universe was created by Rebecca Sugar which ran on-air for five seasons from 2013-2019. The sci-fi animated series was executive produced by Sugar, Ian Jones-Quartley and Kat Morris with Jackie Buscarino. The voice cast is led by Zach Collison as Steven, Grammy nominee Estelle as Garnet, Michaela Dietz as Amethyst, and Dee Magno Hall as Pearl.
The limited series is scheduled to premiere with four back-to-back episodes on December 7 at Cartoon Network.
