Rebecca Sugar explains Pearl's heartache in Steven Universe: The Complete First Season clip
Fans of Beach City’s most powerful (and zany) citizens can relive Steven Universe’s earliest adventures (who can forget Cookie Cat?) when Steven Universe: The Complete First Season is released on Tuesday.
The four-disc DVD set marks the first time a full season of the Emmy-nominated animated series has been released on home video; the set features the show’s first 52 episodes as well as loads of bonus features, including song demos, animatics, an exclusive live performance, commentary from creator Rebecca Sugar, and footage from the Steven Universe Soundtrack Vol. 1 listening party in Los Angeles last summer.
EW has an exclusive clip from the latter, in which Sugar reflects on “It’s Over, Isn’t It?” — the heartbreaking song from the episode “Mr. Greg,” in which Pearl grieves the loss of Steven’s Crystal Gem mother, Rose Quartz, whom she loved. “I finally sort of realized what I was trying to talk about, which is, like, when you’ve tied yourself to someone so much that to lose them is to lose this big piece of yourself, and the way it feels like you’re just dragging this empty piece of you with you,” Sugar says.
Watch the full clip in the video above. Steven Universe: The Complete First Season is out Tuesday.
