Parents need to know that Steven Universe: The Movie is based on the world and characters of popular animated series Steven Universe. Like the show, the movie's content is aimed more at tweens and teens than young kids; Steven himself is now aged up to 16. There's frequent cartoonish violence, with characters hurled into space or "poofed" into cotton-candy like clouds, and viewers hear about mortal danger (i.e. characters have 37 hours to save the Earth) but only see a few drops of blood. One critical fight involves a character merely defending himself instead of fighting back at an angry enemy, which helps defuse her anger. Expect plenty of positive, heartfelt themes that are illustrated with visuals and songs about friendship, autonomy, and kindness; characters admit and learn from their mistakes. Romantic content includes a moment in which a female friend kisses Steven and he blushes; two female characters dance together and sing a song about love. Language is infrequent, but at one point a character calls another a "dingus," and there are two uses of "heck." Parents may want to watch along with kids -- and may be surprised to find depth and emotional intelligence in this uplifting movie.
