In an interview about the upcoming SEGA Forever service for mobile, a small detail about the Sonic the Hedgehog movie was dropped. The movie is apparently now planned to release in 2019 instead of the previously announced 2018. Supposedly a live-action/CGI hybrid, Sonic will make his big screen debut in two years time.
“Nostalgia is actually very much in vogue, which is one the reasons we’ve been chasing it down,” he says. “Everything Nintendo has been doing has been driving big waves in nostalgia, they’ve done some amazing things and they had a lot of success with the classic NES. There is a film and documentary coming out about retro gaming called Console Wars. We also have a Sonic movie coming in 2019.”
