Cartoon Network's Steven Universe The Movie piqued a lot of interest when it was first announced, and now they've released a few more details regarding the movie's theme and soundtrack. First off the movie will be a musical, which Cartoon Network spelled out in a new trailer with the literal words "It's a Musical!". The trailer didn't actually show us any new footage, but it did give us more details on who would be participating in the musical film, and the list is impressive.
The trailer goes on to say "featuring new songs by Rebecca Sugar in collaboration with Emmy, Grammy, and Tony Winners", which include Chance The Rapper, Estelle, Patti LuPone, Uzo Aduba, Gallant, Aimee Man, and more to be announced later. Unfortunately, we still don't have many details regarding the actual film, though going the musical route is definitely going to make fans even more curious when the official trailer finally drops.

For those who are unfamiliar with the series, it revolves around a team called The Crystal Gems, a team of magical beings who defend the universe. Steven is actually half-human and half-Gem and is treated as the little brother of the team, as he's still learning how to use the magical powers that come from his bellybutton. While he might not be as skilled or powerful as teammates Pearl, Amethyst, or Garnet, he often finds a uniquely Steven way to save the day.
