The 25th anniversary plans include six stages and a movie.

The blue blur is about to smack into the silver screen.

Sonic Team sat down with Famitsu magazine in Japan for this week's issue, during which a new game (platforms to be announced on July 22) and a feature film was also announced. (Translation courtesy SOAH City)

"We at Sonic Team – are developing a completely new game, as well as developing a full movie, actively done by Sony Pictures, and animation on Sonic Boom" (emphasis added)

No additional details, such as a release date, are available.

That sonic movie is going to have some big shoes to fill.

A reminder:  The movie is already confirmed to be an animation-live action hybrid.

BTW< pokepal's comment just makes me hear Sideshow Bob say that on repeat.

They really want to make Sonic kiss a real live human girl, don't they?

At least this time she'll be turned into big the cat first.

Let's see what sonic has to say about all of this.

Is the anime any good?  I think my expectations for the film would be based on that.  I've only seen a clip or two of it.  Wasn't sure what to make of the show, but I think they made Knuckles dumb?

Also, lol at the joke in the article.
