The Making Of Sonic Movies

There couldn’t be a better movie franchise to talk about the making of than Sonic the Hedgehog, and I’m sure you all know why. We like to think that it’s nothing short of a miracle that the live action sonic franchise has the life, energy, and support that it does today considering its comeback from what can be considered one of the biggest film setbacks of all time. Moral of the story is don’t cross that line into the uncanny valley folks, listen to the fans and that’s all you need to profit. With the second film right around the corner it’s the perfect time to dive into the behind the scenes of sonic 2 and its predecessor! In this video we look at the making of the Sonic films. And yes, there will be clips of that first design, so viewers discretion is advised.
