Sony Pictures and Sega Sammy Holdings – which is the parent company of Sega, are coming together to bring us a Sonic the Hedgehog movie to theatres. It will be a mix of live-action and CGI. Okay…?
On the innovation angle, what kind of next-generation concepts are Sega Sammy working on?
Sega Sammy Group is currently planning with Sony Pictures to create a live-action and animation hybrid “Sonic the Hedgehog” movie scheduled for release in 2018. Like with this CG animation production, we would like to expand our business into other entertainment areas beyond what we are currently involved.
This is the first time the blue blur has been the star of his own film, having a brief cameo in Disney’s Wreck-it Ralph in 2012, and a slew of television shows in the 90’s with Sonic Underground and Sonic the Hedgehog, and early 00’s with Sonic X. Currently, Sonic Boom which airs on Cartoon Network in the US is the latest Sonic series to air.
