Sonic the Hedgehog Movie in the Works?

Postby GentlemanX » Sat Dec 07, 2013 1:51 pm

So I'm just doing my normal browse of Anime News Network when I notice this article today. It's also worthy noting that the email and street addresses on those domain claims belong to Sony Pictures Imageworks based out of California, the same one that's done animation work for Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, Hotel Transylvania, and the Spider-Man movies. No idea what might surface from this, but thought it was worth mentioning.

Spoiler: show
If I get a Sonic the Hedgehog CGI movie directed by Genndy Tartakovsky, I think I might just die at the sheer prospect.

Now normally I'd just say "I doubt it's anything real" but after seeing the rumours of Sonic Boom coming true, from something that could have easily been made up, I'm really starting to have some hope this is actually going to be true. Also, if they can animate it like they did with the Unleashed opening, then I may just explode.

Before the chaos here begins, let me remind everyone that sometimes companies will claim website names just for the sake of it or so that no one else can use it. This means absolutely nothing right now.

As long as Eddie Lebron stays far, faaaaaaaaaaaaar away from the project I'm game.

Man I bet Archie is going to be pumping out Sonic comics like mad in a few years with Sonic Boom and now this.

True but I meant ongoing titles. Don't pretend they won't try and find space.

Is that a bad thing? I really can't tell.


And just to think, a very long time ago, I saw a fanon idea about a Sonic move made by Sony Pictures Animation.

How ironic—a film made by a division of one of SEGA's former rivals.

That's interesting at the very least. I'm not seeing any news coming out yet, though the Sonic Stadium article mentions Sega apparently gets pitches for Sonic movies all the time. Makes me wonder if one of those pitches might have moved forward a bit.

Spoiler: show
Also yeah, a Tartakovsky take on Sonic would be downright amazing.

Yes! Let it be real even if the critics pan it! I won't watch it, though:

Live action/CGI films based on fictional children's characters usually hit the box office, but miss the praise from critics and fans.

Think I'm too close to the critics? Well, try and grasp this sentence without screaming in horror:

I.

LOVED.

SONIC.

Good for you, now please calm down. There's no need to shout. This is a discussion, not a debate.

I'd blame myself but I'm not the problem... probably.
