About STEVEN UNIVERSE Cartoon Network's Emmy-nominated STEVEN UNIVERSE revolves around Steven, the "little brother" to a team of magical aliens - the Crystal Gems - who defend the planet Earth. Steven is THE SON of the Crystal Gems' late leader Rose Quartz and aging aspiring rockstar Mr. Universe. Steven belongs everywhere and nowhere: he has inherited his mother's Gem and her magical powers, but also his father's humanity and charm. The show is a slice-of-life action comedy that follows Steven as he attempts to bridge the gap between the sci-fi fantasy world of Gems and the cozy, funny, simple-yet-extraordinarily-complicated world of human beings. STEVEN UNIVERSE is created by Emmy and Annie Award-nominated writer and New York Times bestselling author Rebecca Sugar, and produced by Cartoon Network Studios.
