After a month of pre-released episodes finally airing, Cartoon Network is starting 2018 off with a bang by airing the long awaited episode “Lars of the Stars”, which was teased back in JULY of 2017 at SDCC.
As reddit user t_alabi posted on the SULeaks subreddit, the episode is referrencial to long running space pirate anime trope established in the 70’s with Space Pirate Captain Harlock, and features Lars and the Off-Colors in their new found rolls as Homeworld Renegade space pirates that commandeered the fastest Homeworld ship.
The episode takes place after the Connie and Steven fight ends and highlights their first adventure back together, as well as their first space adventure together. The animators were brilliant in their keeping Connie’s hair up in the promos, as it hid her new, shorter hair style debuted in the previous episode “Kevin Party”.
Unfortunately, no news is out about ‘Jungle Moon’ besides it being a Stevonnie episode. Regardless, we haven’t found any blatant, unofficial leaks and are legitimately excited for true new Steven Universe!
So Bingo-Bongo here are some fun pics of the Off-Colors from the promo, so be sure to tune into Cartoon Network on January 5th!
