Steven Universe Panels At Momocon 2017
Last weekend (25/05/2017 – 28/05/2017), was the Momocon 2017 Animation, Video Games and Comics convention in Cartoon Network’s hometown of Atlanta, Georgia, USA. At the convention, there was a Steven Universe panel featuring the voice talent behind the main characters in Steven Universe, including Zach Callison (Steven), Michaela Dietz (Amethyst), Jennifer Paz (Lapis Lazuli), Shelby Rabara (Peridot), Deedee Magno Hall (Pearl) and Grace Rolek (Connie). The special event was an opportunity for Steven Universe fans to ask questions about the show and about the voice performers’ experiences while working on the show.
Lots of enthusiastic Steven Universe fans at the convention even cosplayed as their favourite characters from the show. Popular YouTube channel – The Roundtable, who often produce plot theory videos about Steven Universe had their very own panel at the convention, the panel was led by Roundtable member – Kevin Williams (aka AwestruckVox).
