Live from SXSW, SEGA has revealed a new series of Sonic Mania-themed animated shorts. The series will comprise 5 episodes which will be shown on YouTube, created by the same team that created the Sonic Mania opening short, headed by the one-and-only Tyson Hesse, and soundtracked by Mania composer Tee Lopes.
The short series will take place after Sonic Forces, and will cover what happened to classic Sonic after he returned to his world after the events of Sonic Forces.
The first episode of Sonic Mania Adventures will debut in the next 30 days.
UPDATE: The Sonic the Hedgehog Youtube has released a 30 second sample of the series:

Live from the SXSW Sonic panel, Aaron Webber has revealed that Sonic Forces Speed Battle will be getting a new environment: Mystic Jungle. They only showed the above title card during the announcement.
Stay tuned for more coverage of the SXSW panel, going on right now at their twitch stream.
If you can’t make it to SXSW to see this year’s Sonic panel, you’re in luck: the event will be hosting a livestream of the panel on its SXSW Gaming Twitch channel, which you can find here.
Gotta Go Fast: The Official Sonic Panel, will start running on the Twitch stream at 3:30 PM local time, 4:30 PM EST, and 8:30 PM GMT. There may be a game announcement at the event, and there may be more than one announcement overall, if this SEGA Europe tweet is any indication.
If you can’t watch the stream for whatever reason, don’t fret: we will be reporting the news as it’s announced on the front page and through our Twitter feed.
The panel will feature Sonic Team Head Takashi Iizuka, Sonic Social Media Manager Aaron Webber, Sonic Western Product Development Director Austin Keys, Unit Production Manager & Sonic Boom contributor Jasmin Hernandez, and Sonic comic artist/Sonic Mania Animation Director Tyson Hesse. The panel is located at the Austin Convention Center Gaming Expo, on the Discovery stage, in Exhibit Hall 2.
