About the “Sonic” Fan Film
“Sonic” is a non-profit, 25 minute live-action short fan film based on the iconic blue hedgehog, featuring the voice of Jaleel White, returning to play the character which he first played in 1993. The film is written/directed by Eddie Lebron and produced by Blue Core Studios; known for their feature length "MegaMan" fan film that was released online May 2010.
The film serves as a prequel to the original 1991 classic with various new elements integrated from all of the known Sonic the Hedgehog mythologies. The film aims to establish a revised story; similarly to how Archie Comics did a new take on the character separate from the game's known canon. The short will feature a blend of both live-action and computer-generated sequences featuring many well known Sonic enemies, including his arch nemesis: Dr. Robotnik.
The film was financed out of pocket with the help of fan donations all across the world. Eddie Lebron, along with Blue Core Studios, hopes to explore greater avenues with this project once it's completed and released publicly.
