Sonic the Hedgehog Movie Coming in 2018

We first heard that Sony Pictures began working on a film featuring their blue hedgehog all the way back in 2014, but there’s been little to nothing mentioned about it in the time since then. However, it appears that the project was not canned, it just has taken some time to get rolling (pun intended).

Sega knows very well how popular their character is, and they’re currently taking steps to bring him back to his former glory—however, video game movies are a tricky path to tread.

Here’s what the bigwigs at Sega had to say about the film when speaking to media:

“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.”

This could either turn out very well…or very, very poorly.
