But let's get to know a bit more about Steven Universe, which is (and we tell you just in case you've living under a rock recently) one of the most popular and great animation series of the recent years, it was originally released in November 2013 and from its beginnings captivated lots of children and young audiences for the story of a boy named Steven, a resident of the Beach City town, who along with three superpowering alien warriors called “crystal gems”, must learn to control the powers of the gem inherited by her mother, Rose Quartz, before she died, and thus save humanity from the dangers that might come his way.
The "crystal gems" are Garnet, Amethyst and Pearl, each of which has different powers that help them face all kinds of threats. Steven has his gem embedded in his belly button and it is with the help of the three warriors that he learns to use it. Throughout the series, interesting characters like Lapis Lazuli, Peridot and Jasper gems are added.
After the premiere of its first film, the creator of the story gave details of the 'hidden' message that we will find.
The animated series "Steven Universe," produced by Cartoon Network, has gained a large following cult throughout its five seasons. The television series has also received good comments from critics for its history and characters. And the recent premiere of its film also enjoys great acceptance.

The production team worked on its development since 2018, confirming the news at the Comic-Con in San Diego, shortly after they finished producing the fifth season. The premiere was on September 2, 2019.
The film serves as a kind of culmination of the series. But in the process, "Steven Universe: The Movie" focuses on one particular thing above all: change.
The creator of the story, Rebecca Sugar, chatted with ComicBook.com and gave details of the development of the tape. She also told what is the message behind this movie.
She basically explained that they really wanted to make the film all about its beloved characters, as they learn how to overcome change and growth, and how they are (or not) ready for new chapters and people, a very positive message.
The animated series has been highly praised for its artistic design, music, the complexity of the characters, the importance of the female gender and the creation of a broad science fiction universe that works just seamlessly.
