Everything You Need To Know About The Wonderful World Of Steven Universe

Steven Universe is back, but if you’re confused as to why so many people across the internet are frothing at the mouth for its return, we’re here to help! This is everything you need to know to starting watching the adventures of Steven and the Crystal Gems immediately. (Because you really, really should.)


How Rick And Morty Went From Spoof Short To Full-Length Favourite

Video: There are certain shows with really clear origins. Almost everything on the CW, for example, comes from comic books. And then there are the shows that are weird and creative enough that you have to wonder a) how anyone came up with them, and b) how anyone put them on TV.


Fun Animation Captures The Wild World Of Eating At A Chinese Restaurant

Video: Chinese restaurants can be really fun and lively places, where family and friends gather around giant banquet tables to talk, drink, and laugh together — all while eating food that’s constantly being spun around a Lazy Susan. Anatola Howard’s short animation Giraffe Soup captures the essence of eating Chinese food at a Chinese restaurant perfectly.


And Now, A Man On A Flamingo Fights Mystical Black Sludge With Plant Magic

Video: In addition to having an amazing premise, this short from Naleb is downright beautiful to look at. And at a minute long, “Vestiges” in no way wears out its welcome.


A Castaway's Adventure Takes An Unexpectedly Happy Turn In Studio Ghibli's The Red Turtle

Video: The latest from Studio Ghibli, still reconfiguring itself since Hayao Miyazaki’s retirement, offers a very promising look toward the studio’s future. The Red Turtle, by animator Michaël Dudok de Wit, is Ghibli’s first co-production; it has no dialogue, but is filled with gorgeously simple, hand-drawn images.


How Extreme Is The Weather On Other Planets In The Universe?

Video: Storms that go on for 400 years. Falling molten glass rain. Temperatures jumping from 500C to 1200C in just six hours. The weather in our universe is wild.


What Is The Limit To How Far We Can Travel In Space?

Video: Bad news, guys. There’s a limit to humanity. Even if we had the technology for interstellar space travel, we still wouldn’t be able to see most of the observable universe because we’re actually limited to only being able to go to a hundredth billionth of a per cent of it. We’re stuck within our local galaxy group. That’s sort of depressing! But why is there a limit anyway? Kurzgesagt explains how it has to do with dark energy, the nature of nothing and how only so many things in the universe are gravitationally bound to us.


A Lonely Alien Makes An Interstellar Friend In This Adorable Short

Video: In the utterly charming “Once in a Blue Moon” by Steve Boot, a wordless blue alien deals with crushing sadness right up until his planet gets an explorer as a visitor. Then the alien hangs on to the new creature with all it’s worth.


Gorgeous Animation Shows A Spaceship Mysteriously Travelling To A Universe Beyond

Video: I want to know more about the world in this short animation Entropy by Tim Cahn. I want to know why the spaceship is leaving Earth. I want to know what the space station is doing all the way out there. I want to know who’s there. I want to know where the ship is headed to. I want to live in this world. But in the stillness of the short, we only get to see the beautiful imagery of a spaceship leaving Earth so we have to fill in the blanks ourselves.


What Makes Pixar Movies So Special?

Video: To be honest, it’s everything. The depth of their characters, the artistry in their animation, the comedy, the relationships. It’s a combination of all that that makes (most) Pixar movies excellent. But what makes Pixar movies that little bit extra special? It’s the story. It’s how Pixar movies try to weave a story that we can all relate to. Kaptain Kristian details that special quality — how it’s so much more than prince rescuing princess — in the video below.
