Sony Pictures Entertainment and Sega‘s animation film production company Marza Animation Planet, announced their plans to develop a feature film based on Sonic the Hedgehog, a $1 billion dollar franchise.
The film will be produced by 22 Jump Street producers, Neal H. Moritz.
According to a recent statement released about the upcoming feature film, Sonic will reunite with “some of the most revered and infamous characters of the franchise,” including Dr. Eggman.
“There are limitless stories to tell with a character like Sonic the Hedgehog, and a built-in international fan base. 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.”
The first game in the series, published in 1991, was created by Sega’s Sonic Team division after Sega requested a mascot character; the title was a success and spawned sequels, and transformed Sega into a leading video game company during the 16-bit era in the early to mid-1990s.
