Cartoon Network USA Steven Universe: Diamond Days Promo Released On The Cartoon Network App
As already mentioned on the blog, Cartoon Network USA is unlocking its app for a free promotional weekend preview during the rest of the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. The free weekend starts from today (23rd November), Cartoon Network USA also used the opportunity of the free weekend promotion to also add a trailer for the upcoming Steven Universe story arc – Diamond Days. The first episode of the Diamond Days story arc – “Legs From Here To Homeworld” is already available to view on the app.
According to the extended trailer, Steven and the Crystal Gems head off to Homeworld, the gems homeland and the seat of the Great Diamond Authority. In the trailer, we learn some history about the gems and their purpose. Gems are made by the diamonds to serve them and have various occupations, such as being a soldier, scientist or builder. Some gems have imperfections (i.e. “The Off-Colors”) and hide way from the rest of the gem’s society. In order to make more gems, the diamonds had to colonise more planets, however planet Earth made Pink Diamond reconsider, as Earth is already abundant with life, she felt that she’s not creating life but rather taking it away. Pink Diamond became Rose Quartz and formed a team called the Crystal Gems who vow to defend Earth from their homeworld.
Earth is a lot different to Homeworld and Gems can be more themselves, back on homeworld, Pearls are treated nothing more than “objects”, on Earth, Pearl can be herself and stand up for what she believes in. Unlike Homeworld, Amethyst can have fun on Earth, she’s also from Earth so she had no prior knowledge of Homeworld before meeting Garnet (Ruby and Sapphire), Pearl and Rose Quartz. On Homeworld, gems can’t fuse for love either, so they’ll never experience a powerful fusion like Garnet. Steven is unlike the other gems, not only he’s a human/gem hybrid with a soft heart but also possesses Pink Diamond’s/Rose Quartz gem, he likes helping people and gems, included corrupted gems.
The trailer eventually leads into the present point of the show’s story and also the Diamond Days story arc, Steven informs Yellow and Blue Diamond that he’s “Pink Diamond” and wishes to heal all corrupted gems, Blue and Yellow Diamond can only do so much, Steven will need to talk to White Diamond, but the problem is, White Diamond is not like the other gems, Steven will have a lot of difficulty to convince White Diamond about who he is, but even if he does (he eventually will), will he live up to the expectations of Pink Diamond?

Steven Universe: Diamond Days will air on the Cartoon Network USA television channel from Monday 17th December at at 7.30pm ET/PT.

Sam interviews Shelby after the panel, Sam asked her about the reveal of the Steven Universe: Movie, Shelby didn’t see the teaser before the reveal, so it was a surprise to her as well. Sam mentioned that Peridot’s character has developed during the course of the series, Shelby said that Peridot has developed empathy and became friends with Steven and the other Crystal Gems. Shelby’s favourite character is Aquamarine, a gem with a “sassy” personality, known for her short stature, school uniform attire and British accent. One of Shelby’s favourite moments when voice acting Peridot was when Peridot rebelled against the Great Diamond Authority by calling Yellow Diamond a “clod”, this moment can be seen in the episode “Message Received”. Her favourite line was the “Flowers For You” moment from the episode “Reunited”. The Steven Universe segment concluded with Rupert attacking a Yellow Diamond cosplayer with his tongue.

Julia mentioned that the rest of season one of Summer Camp Island will be airing on Cartoon Network USA sometime towards the end of 2018, in the second half, there’s more lore, revealed secrets, deeper story, character factions, some new characters including sasquatches and elves. Julia voices Susie, the show’s main antagonist and recites her favourite line from the show “Don’t come crying to me with your dumb baby problems because I’m not your mum. I’m the prettiest girl who ever talked to you”. The creators then express their appreciation for the support they had from fans.
Next up, is the Burning Questions segment, this where users of the CN Sayin’ app can ask questions in the form of a video, a young fan asked a Steven Universe question of whether Steven and Peridot will ever fuse, Rebecca Sugar responded by saying it’s up to both Steven and Peridot to come to that decision. A Craig of the Creek and Steven Universe fan asked how Steven Universe and Craig of the Creek relate to the fictional show – Little Butler, both Matt and Ben explain that Steven Universe exists as a show within the Craig of the Creek universe and Little Butler is a show within Steven Universe, Matt and Ben explains that Craig must be a hardcore Steven Universe fan as he knows the Little Butler theme song as he sings it in the episode “Bring Out Your Beast”. Ian was asked who has the highest POW Card level in OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes, Ian mentioned the character with the highest level so far in the show is Chip Damage, who’s level 15, but also mentioned that K.O. once had a glitched level 100 card. Daniel was asked why Baby Ice Bear doesn’t talk, he explained that Ice Bear as an adult doesn’t talk much, so it made sense that Baby Ice Bear doesn’t talk at all, the big mystery will be when he starts talking.
