Sonic Speeds Toward the Big Screen

Sony Pictures Entertainment and Marza Animation Planet, the CG-animation film production company of the SEGA Sammy Group, are developing a film based on the Sonic the Hedgehog video game series. 

The hybrid CG-animated/live-action feature film will capture irreverent tone and spirit of the SEGA character, reuniting Sonic with some of the most revered and infamous characters of the franchise, including the evil Dr. Eggman. 

"There are limitless stories to tell with a character like Sonic the Hedgehog, and a built-in international fan base,” says Hannah Minghella, president of production, Columbia Pictures. “Along with our wonderful creative partners at Marza, we're looking to capture everything that generations of fans know and love about Sonic while also growing his audience wider than ever before."
