The anticipated Steven Universe movie just got a lot more star power and a lot more musical. Cartoon Network announced on Thursday that the film will now be a full-blown musical. And as if that wasn't exciting enough, Chance the Rapper will not only create original songs in collaboration with creator Rebecca Sugar, but will serve as a co-executive producer on the project.

In addition to Chance, Steven Universe The Movie will feature original songs from Aimee Mann, Estelle, Gallant, and more. Cartoon Network also announced the all-star lineup of cast members in the film will include Patti LuPone, Uzo Aduba, Christine Ebersole, Estelle, Charlyne Yi, and Toks Olagundoye.
