“When we started talking about the show, we wanted to take it to a more realistic place, which was something we hadn’t done before,” Malachite Steven Universe creator and executive producer Steven Universe creator Adam Horowitz told ABC News.
“And the idea of doing it that way was so exciting, so exciting to us.”
Malachite is a fictional planet in the popular children’s series Steven Universe, created by Malachi J. Smith and illustrated by John Higgins.
The show is set in the near future and features a series of intergalactic adventures in which the characters are tasked with keeping Steven safe from danger.
The show, which is currently airing on Cartoon Network, is the longest-running animated show on TV, and it is also one of the most successful in the streaming video-on-demand market.
Malachites universe was created by Smith, who created the original Steven Universe series and also produced the animated series.
He and Higgins have been producing the show since 2014, with the first season released on Cartoon Networks in 2018.
