SEGA has announced two new projects for Sonic the Hedgehog, with the company today confirming that we’ll not only be seeing a third Sonic the Hedgehog film, but also the first live action Sonic series.
Both are being developed in partnership with Paramount. The upcoming series will appear on Paramount+ in the future and will be centered around Knuckles with Idris Elba reprising the role.
A statement from SEGA Corporation CEO Haruki Satomi reads:
“We are delighted to announce that the third Sonic theatrical film and the first live action Sonic series for Paramount+ are being actively developed. We’ve got a remarkable partnership with Paramount, and we are excited to continue expanding the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise with them. 2022 is shaping up to be a significant year for the franchise with the second film being released this April, as well as Sonic Frontiers, the highly anticipated video game title, coming this holiday. Sonic has been beloved by fans across the world for over 30 years and we look forward to continuing to bring memorable moments and experiences to them for many years to come.”
The first Sonic the Hedgehog movie debuted in 2020, and we’ll be seeing the sequel this April. No dates have been announced for the future projects.
