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.

You can pre-order a copy of The Art of Steven Universe The Movie through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, DarkHorse.com, and at your local comic shop. This unique, 96-page zine-like softcover retails for $19.99.
