    Default Steven Universe: the Movie

    The Steven Universe movie premieres in just under a week. Does anyone care? I guess I do a little since I'm making this thread, though my hopes aren't high. I was fine with how the series ended. I don't really feel the need for more. brevity is the soul of wit and all that. Plus the villain looks kind of disappointing. They feel like a filler villain for some anime: what if Kefka ate the Gum Gum fruit.

    Not sure if it will be any good, if this is a plan to relaunch the series, or if my cynicism will be pointed at the film one I do see if.

    Not gonna lie, the main selling point for me is older characters, and associated shipping issues:
    • As seen in the trailer, Steven has grown up, and now blushes around Connie.
    • Lars, being kind of undead, may have stayed the same while Sadie did not.

    I'm always down for more SU.

    *^ I mean, it's all but outright aid that Steven and Connie are a couple even at 14 and 12. Spontaneously, danceless fusion is pretty much only a "love" thing, they seem really close, and they're apparently comfortable enough around each other to change clothes in the same room(I want to know how that got past the censors, actually.)

    Also Steven has a neck now, which is something I'm slowly getting used to.

    Haha, necks. Yeah, such a strange thing for Steven to have now. :3

    I'm up for watching the movie, though I'm not sure about the big antagonist they have lined up. Feels a bit made up on the spot.

    Super hype for the movie myself.

    I don't mind the villain being "goofy" in how she operates, she's clearly menacing despite that.

    Super hyped! I love Steven Universe so much. The show is going to be re-branded with a slightly different name in the style of classic anime after the movie.

    Oh boy I can't wait for the new series where it's revealed Steven has a brother and is part of an alien super warrior race. Then Steven is killed fighting his brother and trains with a god in the afterlife to get super strong. Then on an alien planet his hair goes blonde as he goes Super Gem after witnessing the death of his best friend. Then he is warned of androids from a time traveler and eventually fights a magical alien genie after a time skip.

    Then there's a new series where Steven is a grandfather but is wished back to his youth self.

    Then there's a new series taking place between the last two where Steven goes Super Gem God Super Gem, and there's a tournament to decide which universes get destroyed.

    I can't wait. I can't wait for all the absurdity! Why on earth would you ever want to end a series or be brief? Did you know their making a new Matrix movie and a new Rambo movie?

    The season after the movie is still only rumoured. It's not official.

    The best SU/DBZ joke I have seen is part of a comic where Connie desperately tries to make her parents understand that "fusion dance" isn't what kids are calling it these days.

    I suppose so. They haven't done much wrong as I watched the series. ...my choice for the villain still would have been Emerald though.

    Stretchiness by its nature seems to be a pretty goofy power. What we've seen of this baddie is literally the most threatening I've ever seen a stretchy person look.

    What quietly I'm hoping for is a series called Steven Universe: Discovery-Z, or SUDZ for short. It would make their partnership with Dove make even more sense,

    Anybody remember when series would just end? I miss those days.

    What are the odds they pull a Samurai Jack and the continuation is far darker, edgier, and violent? Oh, it'll be a horrible choice, but I can see it being so bad it's funny!

    I’ve seen it pointed out that Amethyst and Garnet (in Secret Team) have used stretchiness to that extent so it seems like a common gem power not something special. This villain is certainly doing it way more.

    I mean....SU makes some DBZ references and um....have you SEEN the stuff Buu does with stretchiness? pretty sure only DBZ villain to kill a random bystander by filling them up with his arm. though I might just be misremembering the time he tried to do that to Vegito and failed. point is, Buu is kind of terrifying especially when he stops being Fat Buu and he constantly uses stretchiness in his fast, unpredictable fighting style.

    I was fairly satisfied with where the series ended, anything I lack satisfaction with doesn't appear to be getting a resolution in the movie. And I'm really not sure how another season/series is really going to make things better.

    What happened to the days of telling a good story and then being done?

    Apocalypse.



    The shields, laser cannons, and pistons aren't a function of the armor--the armor's power is that it changes shape when he does.

    Apocalypse's primary power is that he has full control of his molecular structure and can draw additional molecules from an extra-dimensional space. Everything that isn't an energy blast and some of the things that are are the result of him being the ultimate logical extreme of a rubber-man type.

    You can just not watch it, by the way. The last season ended pretty definitively, you can just have that be your ending. The movie is it's own stand alone thing that may or may not lead into a new season, but if it does that won't change the fact that Steven Universe, the show you're familiar with, ended how it did. A new season at this point would be far enough removed that you can just ignore it if you really can't stand the idea of "stories not ending".

    That won't stop people from joining discussions about the post-series material. They'll just have less knowledge and more dismissive opinions.

    I mean true, but maybe if people didn't like it and didn't watch it, they should consider maybe... not, trying to discuss it. No need to pull more pain on themselves.

    Xenoverse made it a pocket universe shard that was too big to completely remove from the time line abut is otherwise not connected to the main official timeline, so they keep it in storage. So yes, it's canon, but it's a parallel universe and not part of the official canon. Also to be perfectly blunt GT isn't even that bad, there's a clear amount of passion and effort put into it, and it's clearly made by people who were fans of Dragon Ball Z... for better or worse. They just weren't up on the execution.

    But if they didn't try discussing the thing they didn't watch, how would the actual viewers know they had opinions about it?
