Sonic the Hedgehog Movie Release Date Announced

Highlights

  • The Sonic the Hedgehog is a mix of CGI and live action
  • It will be out next year
  • It's been in development since 2014

Mario isn't the only iconic video game mascot with a movie on the way. Sonic the Hedgehog will be gracing theatres with his celluloid debut next year. The Sonic the Hedgehog movie release date is November 15, 2019.

Fast and Furious producer Neal H. Moritz is producing the film alongside Deadpool director Tim Miller as executive producer. It's being directed by Jeff Fowler. He previously directed Oscar-nominated short Gopher Broke.

Sonic the Hedgehog's script is penned by Pat Casey and Josh Miller, who created the Fox Animation show Golan The Insatiable.

Announced in 2014, the Sonic the Hedgehog movie was to be a collaboration between Sega Sammy and Sony Pictures. However in October 2017, Sony Pictures backed out of the project and the film rights were passed onto Paramount Pictures.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the movie will be a mix of live action and CGI, akin to the Detective Pikachu movie starring Ryan Reynolds.

Sonic the Hedgehog debuted on the Sega Mega Drive (or Sega Genesis as it was known in the US). Since then games starring Sega's mascot have sold over 360 million copies across various platforms. The latest game in the series was the dismal Sonic Forces which followed up the excellent Sonic Mania.
