As you may have heard, Sega is working on a Sonic the Hedgehog movie set to be released in 2018. Sega Sammy head honcho, Hajime Satomi, said earlier today that the movie will be a mix between live-action and CGI - casting boring humans against eccentric animated animals and whatnot.
To our surprise, Sega and Sony have selected us (TAY) as their casting agency to pick the perfect roles for each of the characters that will appear in the movie; but there’s a caveat: We really don’t know don’t know the exact details on how the decision process is going to be.
This decision of mixing Live-Action with CGI opens a world of endless possibilities:
- Are we getting the horrible human faces from the Sonic Adventure series back?
- Will Amy Rose be shunned again for another Princess Elise?
- Is Trashcan Sonic making his triumphant return?
Our best bet as agents would be to cover all bases and suggest both a voice actor for the CGI version of the character and a regular actor for their live action counterpart. What we know for a fact is that the main cast of both Sonic Adventure titles will make an appearance in the movie, confirming that Big the Cat will take a vacation from his career as a musician and transition to the big screen.
So, TAY, time to step it up and git gud! Who would you cast to play the roles of Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, etc. in the upcoming Sonic The Hedgehog movie?
