sonic the movie

Sonic is one of the most charismatic video game characters in all of history. At the beginning of the 90s, he appeared out of nowhere (kicking the butt of the hitherto Sega character  Alex Kid ) to challenge  Mario Bros (king of platforms at the time) for the throne as the hero of the most gamers . Sega pulled out of his sleeve a blue hedgehog with red sneakers that was faster, jumped higher and could attack his enemies harder than the famous Nintendo plumber . Its success was immediate and Sonic's first adventure catapulted the sales of the novelSega Megadrive , the first big Sega 16-bit console.

When Sega stopped manufacturing consoles after finalizing the Dreamcast in 2002, the future of Sonic was up in the air. However, far from abandoning the goose that lays the golden eggs, Sega continued developing titles dedicated to the hedgehog for different systems, appearing even on Nintendo consoles , something unthinkable a few years ago. Such is the good taste that left Sonic fans of Sega , which have carried out all kinds of initiatives to honor the porcupine . One of them came in the form of an amateur video game, and the last of all will arrive very soon in the form of a film, since aA group of fans is preparing a film dedicated to this franchise, of which they have shown the first 18 minutes , leaving the creator of Sonic himself speechless  .

Blue Core Studios (previously creators of another fan movie dedicated to Megaman ) is the name of the studio that is carrying out the project. They have been working on the film since before 2010 and although it was originally conceived as a 10 or 20 minute short film , it is on the way to lasting much longer. Despite the fact that the film is being made completely outside of Sega , the creator of Sonic himself has expressed on Twitter that the work shown in the 18-minute video is "impressive ". In many minds is now the question of whether SegaHe will act against this fan project, as he did on other occasions against the Sonic game or the Beat 'em up Streets of Rage Remake.

In any case, as you can see in the video below, this Sonic movie shows a very dignified level of finish, with sequences that mix computer graphics with images of real people and environments. The creators affirm that both the plot of the film and the characters that appear in it, is inspired by the first three installments of Sonic for Megadrive . Therefore, we will see a powerful blue hedgehog facing hordes of robot animals made by the evil Dr. Robotnik. As a curious fact, it should be noted that after the dubbing of Sonic is the actor Jaleel White, well known for his role as Steve Urkel on the series Home Things . We just leave you with the first 18 minutes of the Sonic movie . The date to see the full movie has not yet been announced.
