In an interview with Gaming Bible on Team Sonic Racing this week, Sonic Pillar head Takashi Iizuka also spoke briefly about SEGA’s involvement in the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog movie by Paramount Pictures.
With the less-than-warm receiption of Sonic’s movie design last week, and Director Jeff Fowler going on record to say feedback had been received and changes will happen, many have been left wondering what part SEGA have or will play in Sonic’s movie appearance.
In the interview, Iizuka-san stated “It’s not a SEGA movie – we’re not making it, or anything – and I’m only an advisor, 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.”
While the comment doesn’t give any further indication to SEGA’s position or opinion on Sonic’s current design, it does at least reveal that there is a conduit for dialogue between SEGA’s Sonic team and Paramount, and lends to the possibility that Paramount might look to SoA for more direction on the promised rapid redesign.
