ORIGINAL STORY

The first footage of the upcoming Sonic Prime animated series coming to Netflix has arrived.

A new video showcasing a large range of upcoming shows in Netflix’s new Netflix After School block has brought with it the first look at Sonic Prime, and while it’s short little clip, it does manage to feature an accurate portrayal of Sonic as he appears in the games, running through Green Hill Zone. Check it out below:

What’s interesting is Sonic’s voice which clearly belongs to a new voice actor entirely. There is currently no official word on who is voicing Sonic in Sonic Prime.

Sonic Prime is due to premiere this year on Netflix.

Sonic Prime Announced for Netflix, 24 Episode Series Launches in 2022

Monday, February 1st, 2021

Netflix have officially announced Sonic Prime, a new animated series coming to to the service in 2022 from Wildbrain Entertainment.

Wildbrain have released a press release, with the following summary:

The 24-episode animated adventure for kids, families, and long-time fans draws upon the keystones of the brand and features the “Blue Blur” of video game fame in a high-octane adventure where the fate of a strange new multiverse rests in his gloved hands. Sonic’s adventure is about more than a race to save the universe, it’s a journey of self-discovery and redemption. 

The series will be animated at WildBrain’s Vancouver studio, and SEGA and WildBrain will jointly participate across production, distribution and licensing. Man of Action Entertainment, creators of Ben 10 and the characters and team in the Academy Award-winning feature Big Hero 6, have been brought on as showrunners and Executive Producers for the series.

It’s certainly an interesting premise, but it remains to be seen what this show will actually look like. More recently, Man of Action dipped their toes into the video game pond with Mega Man: Fully Charged, which… didn’t go down particularly well. Hopefully we’ll see some bits later this year.
