“SONIC THE HEDGEHOG” HAS A MOVIE?
SONIC THE HEDGEHOG FILM RELEASE DATE ANNOUNCED
Apparently any video game can be interpreted as a film. Paramount Pictures newest project is a film adaptation of everyone’s favorite blue speed demon, Sonic the Hedgehog.
While the character started off great in his video games, the franchise eventually got stale and almost beyond saving. The only real lifeline Sonic has is the plethora of animated series based on his character. They honestly hold up decently, despite their age and numerous reboots.
Paramount Pictures hasn’t released any information on the film except for its release date. That may be the best option considering video game films haven’t performed that well in the box office. Also, a game as strangely complex and simple (it’s basically a side-scroller) as Sonic appears to not have much of a story to tell. As the games evolved, a plot was created to encompass all the characters but it still boils down to an evil scientist (Dr. Eggman) being thwarted by a talking blue hedgehog that can run at mach speeds.
Sonic the Hedgehog will be released on November 15, 2019, although since Sonic is so fast, maybe it’ll get here sooner.
