I know all the Sonic the Hedgehog fans around the world are wondering what the ‘live-action CG animation’ Sonic the Hedgehog film brings to theaters. We already know that SEGA is teasing a November 15, 2019 release date since we covered it.

Now SEGA has sent out the official press release about the upcoming movie, having quotes from people involved including SEGA Holdings CEO Haruki Satomi, Paramount Pictures CEO Jim Gianopulos and Producer Neal H. Moritz.

Sonic the Hedgehog movie racing into theaters fall of 2019

It seems that every year we get a announcement that the Sonic the Hedgehog movie is coming, next year. Guess what? Paramount Films has slated the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog movie for November 15, 2019.

As we already know Neal H. Moritz (Fast & Furious series) will be producing the project, along with Tim Miller (Deadpool) and Toby Ascher (Green Hornet) as executive producers. Dmitri M. Johnson (Little Nightmares, Life is Strange) and Dan Jevons will be co-producers. So this movie is really gonna be… you know, produced.

If you missed the news before the movie is still set to be a mix of live action and CGI animation. As you can see we don’t really have much news on the Sonic the Hedgehog movie outside the fact that it got a release date. We still don’t have a cast either. Personally don’t think this movie will make its November 15, 2019 release date, but we’ll see. Maybe we’ll get more news on the movie at this year’s SXSW?

‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ movie moves on to Paramount Pictures

If you didn’t know about the Sonic the Hedgehog movie that has been in the works for a couple of years now, basically it started life over at Sony Entertainment. It is now revealed that the IP will be heading to Paramount Pictures as Sony has dropped the project. Neal H. Moritz and his company have signed a ‘first look deal’ with Paramount. They will be producing the project.

While the project is shifting publishing houses, it seems most of the staff from Sony Entertainment will be staying. This includes Deadpool director Tim Miller as executive producer, Blur Studio collaborator Jeff Fowler will make his directorial debut, Toby Ascher is executive producing, Dmitri Johnson, and Dan Jevons will be co-producers. Sadly the movie is still aiming at being a blend of CGI and live action, which honestly sounds terrible.

Now its making me wonder if we will ever see a Sonic the Hedgehog movie and if we do if it will be any good. What do you guys think? Let us know in the comments below!
