Why The Steven Universe Pilot Isn't Considered Canon
Steven is given a magical time travel hourglass from Amethyst and does what any kid would do- he uses it for comebacks. But toying with magic draws trouble to his sleepy beach town and Steven has to step up and save the day- with more comebacks. The result: Steven Universe. Here's the finished pilot. Rebecca and her crew are hard at work on the series, and what you see here are early versions of character designs and animation. Rebecca's brother Steven is working on the backgrounds for the show, so to say I am super proud would be an understatement. Enjoy the video and look for Steven Universe to start in the fall.
While it may have set the tone for the entire series here's why the Steven Universe pilot isn't part of the show's canon. The Cartoon Network series follows the colorful, cosmic adventures of the title character, a young boy who lives in Beach City with an alien race known as the Crystal Gems. Steven is half-gem himself and the show follows him as he learns to use his powers to help defend his home town from assorted alien threats. Steven Universe has been praised as both a fun adventure series and for taking on mature themes and issues.
Episodes of Steven Universe and its sequel, Steven Universe Future , have variously been broadcast once a week, most recently on Friday nights, or in blocks of multiple new episodes in the course of a week, which are marketed as "Stevenbombs", or back-to-back as specials with an umbrella title. The order and length of the first three seasons is inconsistent between official sources; this list uses the "intended order" of the episodes as specified by Ian Jones-Quartey, which re-orders six episodes from the first two seasons compared to the broadcast order. Stevonnie crash-lands in a jungle on an alien moon and, unable to contact Lars, must fend for themself. They discover that the moon houses an abandoned Gem base and orbits a former Gem colony, and have a strange dream involving Yellow Diamond and Pink Diamond. A television film based on the series, titled Steven Universe: The Movie , premiered on Cartoon Network on September 2, ;  its production was first announced on July 21, , at San Diego Comic-Con with the release of its first teaser trailer.
