‘Steven Universe Future’ Preview
Steven Universe Future takes place about two years after the main series and comes with a new opening sequence, Polygon shared. The first episodes air on Saturday, December 7 starting at 8 p.m. Eastern. They include:
- Blue Bird
- A Very Special Episode
Each episode is 15 minutes long, which in turn will lead to 30 minutes of new Steven Universe Future content tonight.
On December 21, two more episodes will air: Snow Day and Why So Blue?
Finally, two more episodes will air on December 28: Little Graduation and Prickly Pair.
Fans also welcomed a new title sequence last week, which included the introduction of new crystal gems. One fan wrote on Reddit that they had a sad thought about the new title sequence: “The little scene right before the episode starts. That’s the temple hill in the rear view mirror. In the opening card, we are leaving beach city behind. We are leaving Steven Universe behind.” Fans aren’t sure if this new limited series is a goodbye to Steven Universe or if it’s just a new chapter in the story.
But some fans have a happier interpretation. One person responded: “What if steven straight up leaves beach city and the gems to travel and do his own thing?” Another suggested that maybe we’ll have a limited series next called “Road Trip.” For now, of course, that’s all speculation.
Here’s a first look clip from the new season:
And here are some more videos released by The Cartoon Network:
Below are spoilers for last week.
Fans had a lot to talk about after last week’s four new episodes aired.
Viewer u/xMasterSlave wrote on Reddit: “Thanks Rebecca for reinforcing my pet theory that Pink Steven in Change Your Mind is Steven’s compressed anger. Really loved these episodes, and I think they totally deserve the quasi-sequel branding. It’s such a simple thing but I have been dying to see Steven show any semblance of actual rage, and I think that’ll be a compelling arc for him going forward.”
Another fan noted that after you watch “Volleyball,” you might want to watch “Revolutionary Girl Utena” to refresh yourself on the references.
Another fan is theorizing that perhaps Steven will abandon his gem powers completely in the end if Pink Steven gets too far out of control. But others think that type of sacrifice is overdone and the show is going to take a more creative approach.
Some think that Rose/Pink is being villainized too much. Others don’t agree. Redditor SaltySeaUnicorn wrote: “Seems like each episode features one of Pink Diamond’s faults / immaturity. Little Homeschool – rage; Guidance – hubris; Rose Bud – avoidance; Volleyball – denial. Steven comes out of each situation more mature, but you can see shades of his mother’s temperament in each episode.”
It will definitely be interesting to see what happens next.
