Steven Universe: The Movie (2019) Review

It only seems like the other day, when Steven Universe aired it’s season five finale – an ending that, to this day, remains one of the strongest I have ever seen. Although it is unclear if the show will return for future seasons, it definitely accomplished a lot with its fifth season, tying up every single narrative thread. But we also all knew that that would not be the final time we would see Steven and the Crystal Gems, for it had already been confirmed that the characters would return for a made-for-TV movie, one that would be set two years after season five’s epic conclusion. And although the movie arguably adds very little to the overall franchise and mythology, it still packs a punch as a deeply emotional and beautifully told animated story.
