    Sonic the Hedgehog has gone through a lot and the Blue Blur has a lot more coming apparently. In an interview with The Worldfolio, Sega president and CEO Hajime Satomi has revealed that a 'live-action and animation hybrid' movie featuring the famous blue hedgehog is in the works with Sony Pictures for a release in 2018.

    The recent Sonic Boom TV show proved to be quite successful and a second season should be on the way. However, with the 'live-action and animation hybrid' genre, what should we expect? In any case, we've got 2 years before seeing the Blue Blur on big screen and to learn more about it

    No. Just no. That has never ended well. Combine that with the fact that it's a video game movie (who have a bad reputation for being... bad), I don't think this will end up being good.

    Whatever happened with that movie that was suppose to release two years ago. It was going to be produced by Colombia pictures and give a dark theme to the sonic franchise.

    Anyone?

    All they gotta do to make it good is hire the PR guy for Sonic's Twitter account as a writer.
    That's all it takes, Sega. Make it happen.

    Who framed roger rabbit did it = Good movie
    Space Jam did it = Ok movie

    But thats the best case scenario lol this is going to be horrific and i cant wait to see it because Sonic 06 and Sonic boom wii-u need a rival for worst sonic-related thing ever.

    I quite enjoyed the smurf movies.

    There's no way in hell this will be anywhere near as good, though

    It will probably be like the Sponge Bob movie that came out last year.

    No no no!! They can't revive the Sonic franchise anymore; they had their chance a waaaaaay long time ago, but they just blew it with pure inconsistency once again. And it has all executed pretty badly in recent years, if you know what I mean... :tpi:

    I'm not surprised coming from Sega, they ruin everytime.
    Please remember this proverb:

    Apart from the fact that vide game based films are almost universally terrible, and live action/animation hybrids are also just as bad, I can't think of a more insufferable lead character for a film than Sonic. If I want to see a prickly, smug, self-assured twat then I'll listen to politicians talking. At least they won't make me fall suddenly and unavoidably into a pit of spikes. Not yet, anyway.

    Plot twist: one of the live action components is Sonic, played by a real hedgehog.

    Did anybody else think Sonic 07 when they read the title?

    What is with Sony and their idiots thinking everything needs to be live-action to be relatable? First they got Smurfs. Next they almost got their hands on MLP. Thankfully the writers weren't stupid to let them take over when all they asked for was help bringing it everywhere. Then they got their hands on Lauren Faust and didn't agree with her direction so they took over. Now they got their hands on Sonic.

    Can Sony and standards even belong in the same sentence anymore? They are trying way too hard to stay relevant and almost beating Miley Cyrus in terms of desperation.
