Everything you need to know about Sonic the Hedgehog

 Well, we all have been entirely aware of the most famous video game “Sonic The Hedgehog”. Kids used to love playing this game all the time. But now there is good news for all the Sonic fans that this video game has now turned into an adventure-based film!

Yes, you heard it right!

Sonic The Hedgehog is an upcoming live-action and adventure-based game that is conceptualized on the most famous video game franchise by Sega. This whole film is revolving around one principal character, which is based on the bright blue animation of the hedgehog.

The film is based on the story of the hedgehog and his adventures in which he tries to explore the life of earth and its complexities. On his adventure, he found a new best friend, Tom Wachowski.

The exciting plot of the film is when Tom and Sonic made efforts to stop the main film Villian named as Dr. Robotnik from catching Sonic. The reason why Dr. Robotnik was catching Sonic was because Sonic has incredible powers which he wants to use for dominating the world.

The film has been based on the genre of animation, comedy and adventure touch. It is directed by famous Jeff Fowler and written by Patrick Casey & Josh Miller. It will soon be hitting the theatres on 14th February 2020 all over the world.

Sony Picture Company acquired the rights for directing the film in the year 2013. Paramount Pictures started working on the film in 2017. The final cast of the film was selected in 2018. Filming was launched in October 2018 in Vancouver and Ladysmith.

On 8th November 2019, the film has already scheduled to be released in the US. The first trailer of the film which was released on 30th April 2019 did not receive the positive and appreciable response from the audience, therefore; Paramount has delayed the release of the film to 14th February 2020 to add some new improvement and redesigning in Sonic character.

For an extra redesigning of animated characters, extensive features have been included with colored eyes and other accessories of gloves or shoes. Most of the criticism was made on the Sonic character design.

The main obstacle that comes around was in the shooting of the film because none of the locations was finalized even at the ending days. At first, it was decided to perform the filming in Venice and later on it was decided to perform in the mountaineering area of Switzerland.

But based on the approval of the entire crew, Vancouver was selected finally. Some of the shooting scenes have been performed in New York City as well.

Another best thing about the film which receives so much appreciation and praise has been the visual effects and graphic designing of animated characters.

Although the fans of Sonic were little disappointed with the Sonic graphic character and therefore the direction team decided to improve it even more than even delayed the release of the film in a theatre. The first trailer of the film was released in April and the second trailer was later on released in November.

Visual effects in the film have been given by Moving Picture Company (MPC), as well as Marza Animation Planet. The production team has made incredible efforts to add realistic approaches in the version of all animated characters.

The latest running shoes have been included with the addition of fur. In short, the graphics team has decided to bring a humanlike body look in the characters. For an extra redesigning of animated characters, extensive features have been included with colored eyes and other accessories of gloves or shoes.

Well, we are sure enough that just like the video game; this fantastic film will also be successful enough in winning the hearts of all Sonic fans. All the disappointments which the fans had from the first trailer launch will be cleared as soon as the final version of the film is released.
