Sonic the Hedgehog feature film to blend animation with live action

Sonic the Hedgehog will star in a movie from Marza Animation Planet, Sega and Sony, the companies announced today.

The untitled film will include some well-known characters from the blue mammal's past adventures, including Dr. Eggman. Marza, a Japanese animation company, previously produced the animated short Sonic: Night of the Werehog and cinematics for Sonic Colors, Sonic Generations and more.

"There are limitless stories to tell with a character like Sonic the Hedgehog, and a built-in international fan base," said Hannah Minghella, Columbia Pictures' president of production. "Along with our wonderful creative partners at Marza, we're looking to capture everything that generations of fans know and love about Sonic while also growing his audience wider than ever before."

Check out the trailer below for Sonic Boom, which is headed to Wii U and Nintendo 3DS in November.
