Steven Universe SDCC Recap via Madridista

su-recap

Thanks to random Tumblr user Madridista who earlier today posted a recap of the Steven Universe – San Diego Comic Con panel that took place earlier today.  Text version below.

  • They showed a clip of tonight’s episode “Beach City Drift.”
  • There were a couple of the show’s songs that the crew sang at the beginning, such as the credits song, the main title song, etc.
  • A preview of the new iOS/Android game “Soundtrack Attack” was shown.
  • Rebecca has created a children’s book based on the Emmy nominated episode, “The Answer.”
  • Rebecca said that the credits is a theme message for everyone, and it isn’t directed towards anyone specifically.
  • Rebecca said the song creating processes goes back and forth, but it starts when they’re throwing in ideas to create an episode. Everyone agreed Rebecca’s demos are the best!
  • Steven’s canon birthday is August 15th, same as Steven Sugar, Rebecca’s brother.
  • Rebecca said that she is fine with the 11-minute format of the show.
  • There’ll be a half hour special airing soon in the coming weeks! (Presumably Bismuth)
  • Steven is home-schooled by the gems. He is smart but still has a lot to learn!
  • A question was asked if Steven grew up to sound like a musician, who would he sound like? Some said he would grow up to be like Greg and the music would involve rock. Bon Jovi was a name mentioned!
  • It was asked if we’d see more of homeworld, but since it was a spoiler question it wasn’t answered!
  • Rebecca said she knew most of the basic plot of the show like the fusions before the show, but some things were made along the way, like Amethyst’s backstory and the kindergarten story. Getting to know the staff helped to create some of the story of the show.
  • Steven’s VA, Zach Callison knows a bit of Italian and has a good accent.
  • Rebecca said that she gets inspired by everything that happens in life.
  • The crew confirmed that there will be new gems introduced in the upcoming episodes!
  • Rebecca sang a song “Here Comes a Thought” which will be airing in an upcoming episode.
