Screenplay, production and direction
The screenplay is again the work of Patrick Casey and Josh Miller . Also returning are Neal H. Mortiz, Toby Ascher and Toru Nakahara as producers, and Haijime Satomi, Haruki Satomi and Tim Miller as executive producers. Jeff Fowler is still directing .
The success of the first film
Sonic grossed $ 306 million worldwide against a budget of 95, and is the highest-grossing video game adaptation in North America. Even the digital release – anticipated for the Covid-19 emergency – went very well. The project was saved at the last: we remember that the first design of the blue hedgehog was heavily criticized by fans, but Paramount nistened to them and changed it, making it more faithful to the original.
A video game icon
Sonic , created in 1991 by SEGA to compete with Nintendo’s Mario, has been the protagonist of numerous video games and five television series ( The Adventures of Sonic, Sonic, Sonic Underground, Sonic X, Sonic Boom ), three short films ( Sonic – Man of the Year, Sonic Christmast Blast, Sonic: Night of the Werehog ) and an OAV ( Sonic the Hedgehog , freely inspired by the game Sonic the Hedgehog CD ).
