Sonic the Hedgehog coming to theaters 2018 — in live action and CGI
“Sega Sammy Holdings — the parent company of Sonic the Hedgehog creator Sega — is working with Sony Pictures to bring the blue blur to the big screen. In an interview with The World Folio, company president and CEO Hajime Satomi confirmed that a combined live action and computer-generated film is in the works.
Beyond its release window, Satomi neglected to share little else about the film. It’s not immediately clear if this project is in development alongside the previously announced animated Sonic feature, or if this will replace that one. Sega and Sony announced that CG-animated film in 2014, saying then that it was in production at Japanese studio Marza Animation Planet.”
