Cartoon Network USA San Diego Comic Con 2017 Sunday 23rd July Overview
Yesterday (23/07/2017) was the last day of San Diego Comic Con 2017, on the final day at the convention, three Cartoon Network related events took place, the Steven Universe: Art and Origins discussion session, the Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu panel (as well as The Ninjago Movie video game demonstration) and a live recording of the official Steven Universe “Stronger Than You” music video with Estelle and a huge crowd of Steven Universe fans.
Starting off Sunday at the convention was the panel for the newly released Steven Universe: Art and Origins art book, although the panel was more like a relaxed conversation. Rebecca Sugar discussed the making of the art book. Rebecca was joined by Ian Jones-Quartey (former supervising director for Steven Universe) and the book’s author, Chris McDonnell. Leading the conversion, Rebecca talked about what influenced the show, the development of the characters (including early character concept art) and design of the show as well as the show’s music. There was an autograph session, this was an opportunity to get a copy of the new art book signed.
Also on Sunday afternoon, was the panel for the Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu TV show, the event was an in-depth behind the scenes look into the making of the animated series and development behind the Lego toys associated with the series. Attending the panel were Kevin and Dan Hageman (show writers), Tommy Andreasen (showrunner), Simon Lucas (senior creative director at Lego), and Nelson Lamonica (IP lead at Lego). Some info about the upcoming season, season eight was unveiled, the season will be called “Sons of Garmadon” and a (silent) sneak peek of the new season can be seen in the video below.
