Can you imagine SEGA's frustration with the Sonic movie? It really seems like Paramount rejected multiple suggestions SEGA had for the film. We know for sure that SEGA pushed back on Sonic's design, and Paramount ignored it. We're all seeing how that played out!
Sonic Team boss Takashi Iizuka took some time during a recent interview to once again set the record straight on Sonic's movie. He very clearly states that this is NOT a SEGA movie.
"It's not a SEGA movie - we're not making it, or anything - and I'm only an adviser, really. But I do get shown things, and the [movie team] ask for my opinion. I'm also listening to what the fans are saying, and I'll feed that back to the director - he, and the producers, are very interested in receiving that feedback. At the end of the day, it's up to the team at Paramount to make something successful, but we're all looking forward to seeing the finished movie."
