Sony is Making a Sonic the Hedgehog Movie


Way past cool. Can really move. Ninten-DON'T. Chili dog. Pick your favorite reference.

If there is a movie based on a video game in some stage of development, chances are pretty good it's happening at Sony. The film arm of the company has the screen rights to everything from Angry Birds to Metal Gear to Heavy Rain to Rollercoaster Tycoon, having effectively cornered the market without actually having made any of the proposed features. But now they're said to be moving forward on one of their priority projects: Sonic the Hedgehog.

Said Sony Pictures production president Hannah Minghella: "There are limitless stories to tell with a character like Sonic the Hedgehog." The film, however - described as a "live-action/CGI hybrid" - will follow the story from most of the games, with Sonic in conflict with his nemesis Dr. Eggman over the safety of Sonic's animal friends. It is presumed that Eggman (for a time known as "Robotnik" to Western fans) will be played by a human actor while Sonic is animated, though no casting has been announced.

The actual filmmaking will be done by Marza Animation Planet, a Japanese feature-animation studio owned by Sonic rights-holders Sega Sammy. Marza was previously responsible for the animated Sonic short-subject Night of The Werehog.

Sonic The Hedgehod.
Maybe I'm justb eing too nitpicky though. But you misspelled that. If I spelled misspelled right.

Regardless, I just hope they don't do sonic '06's plot... But let's wait and see whatt hey come up with.

I was skimming through so fast that for a second there I was thinking you were referencing Heavy Gear.

I can fathom people wanting to make a movie from a franchise with at least passable story telling (Tomb Raider, Uncharted, etc), but Sonic? Yeesh, you'd think they'd learn something by the terrible reception ever game tends to get these days.

Who would be braindead enough to use that terrible story again?

Well, I did hear they got ASM 1&2. I'm pretty sure they'd do everything if desperate enough. Except the obvious.

I wonder who will play live-action Eggman... and, if possible, could they NOT make him look like the Eggman from Sonic 06...

Other than that... uh... can this movie have a Jaleel White cameo?

Why a live-action/CGI hybrid? those things rarely turn out right. just go full CGI and be done with it.

whoa you just hit me with a nostalgia train i haven't seen that in years.

anyway...if they could somehow make a movie of sonic 3 and knuckles i think there's enough there for a decent story and its far better than anything afterwards besides sonic adventure 1, or sonic battle I guess.

Considering that the worst part of Sonic is the characters (With few exceptions) and the story, this seems like a terrible idea. Atleast it can´t be as awful as that gritty "thing" they released on Youtube a while back...

I would be curious if they went with costumes instead of CGI, just because it could be hilariously awful in a good way.

You should check out the Heavy Gear Assault game. Unfortunately the early backer program where you can get into the alpha testing is over but hopefully an open beta will happen in a few months.

That's different. ASM 1-2 didn't have terrible stories that were already used in other incarnations and adaptations, they had original terrible stories.

Now that I saw that the movie is going to be live action/CGI hybrid, I say there's absolutely no hope. Every live-action adaptation of a cartoon character with CGI sucked major balls.

I don't see why they would do that either. Why not animation? Guess we'll have to wait and see where they go with this.

Ok, Sony, take a step back and have a look at Eggman. He is a really goofy looking, not at all threatening cartoon character, isn't he? And you want a live actor to play him? Dear me, good luck with that.

Unless maybe... [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RLM6kGfy4f4&feature=youtu.be&t=15s]

I hope they don't have a human fall in love with Sonic, it wouldn't be weird (well, it would) but it would just serve to reaffirm all the slash-fic writers who have spent countless minutes typing out their Sonic sex fantasies.

there already was a sonic movie a while back in the late 1990s.. it was called Sonic the Hedgehog: the movie.. it had a english dub back in 2004... i think ADV put it out here in the US.. there apparently were some scenes removed because as a Japanese anime it had scene too "extreme for US viewers" Tails holding some chick named Sara's breasts in his hands.. Robotnik groping Sara, sonic looking up Sara's dress, sonic flipping someone off, a dream thing where Sara is pregnant and breastfeeding... wonder if their be any panty shots in this sonic film, lol
