…um, on the Cartoon Network App. Look, at this point, we take whatever Steven Universe cartoon we’re given. This hiatus has gone too far.
Cartoon Network announced the news on their official PR Twitter account, along with the trailer above. Needless to say, there’s a lot to unpack here. Steven still avoiding people, Dewey in political trouble (Nanefua has my vote), Sadie coming further out of her shell with the Cool Kids and doing so in terrifyingly impressive fashion. Even a flash of angry Lapis. That can’t be good. I wonder if Peridot forgot to pick up the groceries from the store. Don’t upset the bae like that, Peridot.
What does it mean for the show that these episodes will release on the CN App rather than TV? Honestly, who knows anymore? I’m not sure Cartoon Network themselves could tell you. In retrospect, this should surprise no one. Steven Universe has released on the app before television a couple of times now, so perhaps this is the next step in a push either for the app or Steven Universe’s future on it.
Yeah, I’m nervous. I remember what happened to The Legend of Korra once it shifted online. Still, I think Steven Universe has more support than that. At least, I hope so. Judging by this teaser, we’re heading into territory too dramatic and remarkable to lose out on. If I miss out on goth Sadie singing horror punk with the Cool Kids, I’ll never forgive anyone for anything ever again.
