Rebecca Sugar, one of the writers for Cartoon Network’s Magnum Opus Adventure Time, has announced that she is creating her own show for CN, Steven Universe, which is slated for a Summer 2013 premiere. Sugar has written several episodes of AT, including “I Remember You” and “Simon and Marcy”, both of which study the relationship between Marceline and The Ice King right after (or during) the Mushroom War, the famous war which made all the crazy shit that happens on AT possible. “Simon and Marcy”, one of the best episodes of the entire series, was her last work on the show.
The premise of the upcoming Steven Universe, according to CN:
Slated to debut in 2013, Steven Universe is a coming-of-age story told from the perspective of Steven, the youngest member of a team of magical Guardians of the Universe. The animated series was conceived as part of the shorts development initiative at Cartoon Network Studios, and is created by Emmy and Annie Award-nominated writer and storyboard artist Rebecca Sugar (Adventure Time). Sugar is Cartoon Network’s first solo female show creator.
Sounds pretty cool. Another cool tidbit is that Raven M. Molisee, known for her work on My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, has stated on her Deviant Art page that she will be involved with it, as well. This is what she had to say:
There are so many reasons for you guys to be interested in this thing, you don’t even know. Ian Jones-Quartey (of Adventure Time and Venture Bros) is on it, Danny Hynes (character designer on Venture) and so many others. Lots of people who are new to boarding but coming out of indie comics, so their stuff is already really funny and full of life.
What I’m guessing (actually, it’s not much of a guess) is that it will be rated TV-PG (D,V?) and will be an awesome companion piece to Adventure Time and Regular Show, since Rebecca Sugar is not one to disappoint. Summer can’t get here soon enough!
My tastes in games breach all genres, though my fortes are platformers and first-person shooters. My favorite game series is probably Super Mario, specifically the 3D games. I also love Rayman, Hitman, Bioshock, Half-Life/Portal, Uncharted, and Grand Theft Auto. As for my favorite game, it's hard to say: I love Portal 2, Shadow of the Colossus, Half-Life 2, Bioshock, Resident Evil 4, Super Mario Galaxy 2, Rayman Legends, Hitman 2: Silent Assassin, Grand Theft Auto IV, L.A. Noire, Fallout 3, Journey, and Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence all so damn much.
