Boy wonder Steven with the Crystal Gems in Cartoon Network's latest series, 'Steven Universe'.

Check out the brand new cartoon about a young boy who may or may not have magical powers...

Fans of Adventure Time and The Regular Show will have more reason to keep tuning into Cartoon Network – Steven Universe is making its debut soon!

The whimsical new series is a combination of magic, sci-fi, action and comedy, and will include some unconventional musical numbers, too. Created by Rebecca Sugar, Steven Universe revolves around the adventures of a young boy who hangs out with three galactic warriors.

Steven is described as a hammy, goofy ukulele-playing boy who is sort of a little brother to the warriors, the Crystal Gems. As the magical guardians of humanity, the Crystal Gems is made up of of leader Garnet (voiced by R&B singer-songwriter Estelle), fun-loving Amethyst (voiced by Michaela Dietz) and perfectionist Pearl (voiced by Deedee Magno Hall).

Meanwhile, Steven – who is voiced by Zach Callison – may or may not have magical powers coming out of his belly button when he eats ice cream...

But one thing is for sure, viewers can expect him to spontaneously break into a song. Or two.

Steven Universe also features the voices of Sinbad and Joel Hodgson; there are also a few episodes where special guest stars Nicki Minaj and Aimee Mann appear. 

> Steven Universe premieres on Cartoon Network (Astro Ch 616), on Jan 6 at 6pm.
