Film Distributors’ Association Lists Sonic the Hedgehog Movie for a December 13th 2019 Release in the UK

Saturday, March 17th, 2018

The Film Distributors’ Association, the UK body for theatrical film distributors, have listed the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog movie on their site. Notably, it’s been given a later release date than the previously reported November 15th 2019 launch, suggesting the film will launch in the UK on the later date of Friday December 13th 2019.

While films releasing later in the UK is nothing particularly new, this is somewhat notable; as it puts the film a week before the projected release date for Star Wars: Episode IX. Perhaps Paramount are betting on Sonic’s historic popularity in UK stacking up to Disney’s holiday juggernaut? It’s no doubt a risky move, but with a relatively star-studded team behind the Sonic film (including Neal Moritz of the Fast and the Furious series, and Tim Miller of Deadpool), whether it’ll pay off is anyone’s guess at this point.

Summer of Sonic and Sonic Boom 2013 Announced and Dated

Thursday, June 20th, 2013

Summer of Sonic and Sonic Boom return in 2013!

Summer of Sonic will be taking place in London, UK at the Westminster Central Hall on August 3rd.

Sonic Boom will be taking place in St. Louis, MO, USA at The Pageant on August 10th. Doors open at 5pm.

More details regarding ticketing and event specifics will be announced soon.

A final word from myself: some of you may or may not know that I have been a member of staff at Summer of Sonic for the past 5 years, but sadly I will not be able to staff or attend this year’s event. If you are a Sonic fan then please make sure you attend Summer of Sonic as it has been one of the greatest experiences of my life and has enabled me to meet loads of new people and make a whole heap of new friends.

Good luck to the team this year (and the chap/chapette who gets to take on my job!) and I’m sure it will be as brilliant as ever!

Big news from the SEGA Blogs today as both Summer of Sonic and Sonic Boom are confirmed to return this summer.

Summer of Sonic will be a collaborative Sonic convention between SEGA and fans (as per usual) and will happen in the “London area” (UK) on Saturday the 7th of July. The venue has not been confirmed at this time and the official website www.summerofsonic.com will go live on Monday the 6th of February.

Sonic Boom has also been confirmed in San Diego (US) during the week of the San Diego Comic Con which runs from the 12th to the 15th of July. Once again, the venue has not been announced yet so there’s still more news to come regarding both events.

EDIT
