Plot Synopsis

STEVEN UNIVERSE is a 15-minute animated series that follows the misadventures of Steven, the ultimate little brother to the Crystal Gems, a trio of self-appointed guardians of the universe. Whether Steven is trying to find a trick to summon his magic weapon or searching for an item that can save Beach City from a magical comet hurtling toward the town, Steven and the Crystal Gems work together to save the day. Steven is a half-Gem of a boy, who is still trying to figure out his powers to become the true hero he is destined to be. He still doesn't have much control over his powers, which originate from the gem in his bellybutton, which means Gem magic can crash into his everyday life. With one foot in the human world and another in a magic world, sometimes his mortal quirks even disrupt Gem missions he takes with the Crystal Gems: Garnet, the mysterious and powerful leader; Pearl, the perfectionist who craves structure and logic; and Amethyst, the prankster and loose cannon of the group. Featured voices also include: Sinbad, Joel Hodgson, Grace Rolek, Atticus Shaffer, Reagan Gomez, and Brian Posehn, along with special guest stars Aimee Mann and Nicki Minaj.

Also includes hours of all-new bonus content including: Animatics, Minisodes, Commentary, Steven Universe The Movie: Sing-A-Long, and more! Cartoon Network's six-time Emmy-nominated STEVEN UNIVERSE revolves around Steven, the "little brother" to a team of magical aliens -- the Crystal Gems -- who defend the planet Earth.
