Sonic The Hedgehog racing toward a live-action/hybrid movie at Sony

02.10.2016

Sonic The Hedgehog is finally being brought up to speed with the other popular comic book properties that have been given a shot at being adapted for big-screen adventure. That's right... Sonic The Hedgehog is being primed for his very own movie.

Speaking to The Worldfolio, SEGA CEO Hajime Satomi dropped the information bomb that such a project is in the works at Sony Pictures for release in the next couple of years.

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.

Hmmm... a live-action/animation hybrid...? Is that really the best approach to take for Sonic... bringing him into a world where humans exist, unless you're going to go meta and have him realize what a big video game star he is? Otherwise, we're looking at something that at least will look like those ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS or GARFIELD movies and... I just can't. It makes me too sad to even envision something like that.

Sonic would be better off within his own world, maybe with Tails introduced early on, and of course battling the evil Dr. Robotnik as is standard in a Sonic adventure. Please don't turn this into THE SMURFS. No one needs that.

So, would Robotnik be a human or...

Would he be CG too? Like are they planning to do a Gargamel thing where the human villain is also animated because fuck you and here's a random portal to New York while we're at it, or will they attempt a shred of world-building and do this more like Ninja Turtles? Not that either approach will make a good movie, but it could mean the difference between "meh" and a total embarrassment.

Hey, remember Sonic 2006 when they tried to put Sonic in a human world?

This will suck just as bad as that. Sonic as a cartoon would be fine, but the real life/animated hybrid is a stupid idea. Is he going to leap from the tv to the real world like the smurfs? I really hope it's set in Sonics world and the only human is Dr. Robotnik (Eggman, please have him called Eggman in the movie).

Oh and I wonder what B list actors are going to do this and then complain about how shitty it is once it's released like EVERY live action/cartoon movie from the past 15 years.

I was with you until you wanted him to be called Eggman. "Robotnik" is campy and intimidating. "Eggman" is retarded

Time for a Videogame movie "Shared Universe"

We need John Leguizamo to reprise his role as Luigi and make an appearance in the Sonic movie post credits.

...I would pay to see this. Luigi meets Sonic, throw in Pac-Man somehow and you got yourself a hit.

This sounds like it has a "Smurf" vibe to it....
