Here’s a fun bit of news. A leaked photo from the filming of the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog movie confirms that the much-loved Green Hill Zone will be featured as one of the story’s locations! Check out this tweet from Twitter user @twip98…
I find this really funny considering I recently went on a rant about the overuse of Green Hill in the Sonic franchise, but I must say I really like this. It’s a great little nod for hardcore (or even casual) Sonic the Hedgehog fans, and it demonstrates the fact that the movie is honouring its video game origins.
That being said, the Green Hill of the upcoming movie looks a bit more like a Bob Ross painting than the palm tree-adorned cave-fest that was Sonic Generations, but we can allow them some artistic license, right? (Also it’s a town now? With a big heart??)
So what do we know about the Sonic the Hedgehog movie so far? Well, it’s going to be a mixture of live action and CGI, with a computer-generated Sonic. It will star James Marsden and maaaaaaybe Jim Carrey as Doctor Eggman, a rumour that’s been doing the rounds for a few weeks, and one that has yet to be denied. Also, it’s currently in production (although I guess that’s obvious from this article, chuckle chuckle) and it’s due out in the autumn / fall / slightly cooler season of 2019.
I really hope it doesn’t suck.
How do you feel about Green Hill being in the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog movie? Are you looking forward to seeing the finished film? Should Doctor Eggman be played by a woman?? Leave your thoughts in the comments below!
