After Sonic 3 the movie and a series, Paramount Pictures is talking about a Sonic Cinematic Universe. It will be like the Marvel Cinematic Universe but with hedgehogs, a fox, and Jim Carrey.
It is to be hoped that you like the blue hedgehog in the cinema because its producers have no intention of going back. No, they even want to expand the hedgehog’s cinematic universe. It’s the SCU, for Sonic Cinematic Universe, an original name that hasn’t been heard anywhere else…
Long term projects
It is this Wednesday, March 30, 2022, that you will be able to follow the new adventures of the mascot of SEGA, Tails, and Knuckles in the Sonic 2 movie. If the success of the feature film is not known in advance, the performances of the first part are enough for producers who see things big.
One of them, Toby Ascher, is already announcing the creation of a Sonic Cinematic Universe and accordingly, long-term plans for the license.
We are creating a Sonic Cinematic Universe, so we knew new characters, like Tails and Knuckles, were going to appear; protagonists new to the movies but known and loved by gamers around the world.
Sonic Cinematic Universe, a guaranteed success?
Considering the popularity of the character and the large audience he can attract, the future of the anthropomorphic animal on the big screen looks bright. And that’s all the more true when you look back at the money made by Sonic the Hedgehog. He thus collected 320 million dollars at the box office, for a budget of 85 million, which makes a package of gold rings.
As such, it is one of the highest-grossing video game adaptations of all time. It is therefore easy to understand why Paramount Pictures gave the green light for the sequel, and a Paramount + series centered on Knuckles. Will the studio go so far as to create crossovers with Nintendo for a spin-off? After all, there is the Mario & Sonic franchise at the Olympic Games…
