They are boasting a soundtrack that will be able to be revisited time and time again. The movie is set two years after what happened in “Change Your Mind” and Steven is now sixteen. According to Screenrant the fifth season was a huge turning point for the character. So in Season 6 we could see a whole new side of Steven.
Executive Producer Ian Jones-Quartey also hinted that we would get to see the reinvention of Steven. During an interview with Rebecca Sugar, Kat Morris, Joe Johnston, Matt Burnett and Ben Levin on the Steven Universe Podcast they go into some of the details of what that could mean.
In the sixth season Steven has to be focused on what he really wants to be. He can’t succumb to the desire to conform just to make other people happy.
We will be updating you as we hear more about season 6 and hopefully we get that release date and contract info very soon.
