After many years of anticipation, the Sonic Fan Film has been completed and is now available to watch online. The 20-minute live-action picture, written and directed by Eddie LeBron and released through Blue Core Studios has garnered much attention, in part as it sees Jaleel White voice Sonic the Hedgehog once more (for those who have been living under a rock, White voiced Sonic in The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog and SatAM back in the 90s).
In the 24 hours since its release, the film has already racked up an ultra-impressive 200,000 views on youtube – if you haven’t checked it out yet, watch it above and see what all of the fuss is about.
I’m going to keep this short. Eddie Lebron is a film maker, his latest project has been a Sonic fan movie. Only this one is different, it’s amazing! Try not to spill your tea.
The short film is due for release this summer. You can find out more via the links below… … Oh yes… That is Jaleel White voicing Sonic.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to try and convince Eddie Lebron to turn his talents into building me a life sized fully working BuzzBomber! Yes I know that was CGI but I can dream!

Following an announcement on SonicFanFilm.com, Eddie LeBron (the director of the Megaman Fan Film) appears to have recruited the classic vocals of Jaleel White, the voice of Sonic throughout the Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog and the SatAM cartoon series, in order to reprise his role for a short 10-20 minute fan film.
To quote a statement from LeBron on the site:
As of early October, we have officially signed Jaleel White to voice to do the voice of the titular character, “Sonic the Hedgehog”. Jaleel White first entered the public eye as Steve Urkl in the TV sitcom. “Family Matters” and since then, he has been in various feature films and has also entered voice acting. One of his most popular voice acting roles was as Sonic the Hedgehog in various cartoon adaptations. He is widely known by fans as THE voice of Sonic; as we do. Thus, we want Jaleel’s involvement on this.
LeBron goes on to detail the format of the live action movie, which hopes to take most of its inspiration from the earlier Sonic titles, as well as to include a completely CGI Sonic. It is hoped the final production of the short will be premiered at the Screw Attack Gaming Convention in 2011.
