On Tuesday, Cartoon Community unveiled the primary poster for the upcoming Steven Universe film. In it, we see Steven, Garnet, Amethyst, and Pearl, all decked out in new outfits and triumphantly standing on a Seaside Metropolis cliff. Steven appears a little bit older, a little bit extra mature. Above them looms an ominous pig-tailed determine, a mysterious gem we haven’t seen earlier than.
Cartoon Community introduced the film ultimately 12 months’s San Diego Comedian-Con, dropping first a teaser that ended with the villain’s eerie cackle and silhouette. Many — most of us included — assumed that the villain can be the nefarious Aquamarine, a small gem with a sadistic streak and a chilling, child-like giggle much like the giggle within the teaser. Upon additional reflection although, the silhouette appears nothing like Aquamarine and the giggle is barely deeper and a complete lot extra sinister.
Why did we assume Aquamarine?
On the finish of the season 5 finale of Steven Universe mainly all gems and characters Steven ever encountered had been accounted for ultimately, form, or type — apart from Aquamarine, who we final noticed in area with Topaz within the season 5 opener “Stuck Together.” Although the finale had not aired with the discharge of the trailer, a lot of the gems appeared within the episode “Reunited” for Ruby and Sapphire’s wedding ceremony, with the promise of White Diamond teased on the finish. Aquamarine, in the meantime, was nowhere to be seen, so we simply assumed she’d be the large dangerous of the film.
The poster means that what we thought was very, very improper. The villain towers over Steven and his associates. Her gemstone is an the other way up coronary heart. It may very well be potential that Aquamarine has fused with somebody greater … however who? And wouldn’t she have Aquamarine’s gem ultimately? However isn’t a coronary heart simply two tear drops the other way up?
The (new?) character’s sleeves resemble Yellow Diamond’s armor, however we haven’t seen a gemstone like hers earlier than. She additionally seems to resemble XJ-9 from ‘00s children basic My Life as a Teenage Robotic, however a crossover — nevertheless cool that is perhaps — is very uncertain.
Like hottest episodes, the Steven Universe film might be a musical. There’s not set launch date as of but, however with San Diego Comedian-Con simply across the nook, preserve your eyes peeled for more information — and probably a full trailer.
