Netflix has officially announced the animated ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ series entitled ‘Sonic Prime.’
Created in collaboration with SEGA of America and WildBrain, Sonic Prime will initiate the video game principal to the new generation of children ranging from six to 11. Netflix has announced 24 episodes as of writing this piece and will see the “blue blur” in “a high-octane adventure where the destiny of a strange new multiverse remains in his gloved hands.” It’s billed as more than just a story of saving the universe, however, and will also highlight “…a journey of self-discovery and redemption.”
WildBrain’s Vancouver studio will be handed over animating the series, while Man of Action Entertainment will work as the showrunners and executive producers. SEGA and WildBrain will catch up for production, distribution, and licensing.
“Sonic is a beloved character and holds a special place in everyone’s heart, including my own,” Dominique Bazay, Director of Original Animation, over at Netflix, said in an interview. “I spent many hours with the blue blur as a kid, and it’s a privilege to be able to bring this character everyone knows and loves on a brand new adventure with Netflix — one that a generation of loyal fans and brand new fans around the world can enjoy.”
Sonic Prime is expecting a 2022 release.
