“Sonic The Hedgehog” is a popular video game that was first released in 1991 and sold over two million copies by the end of ‘91. The considerable publicity of the first “Sonic: The Hedgehog” game helped it evolve and continue releasing new versions. This also allowed Sega to make its latest “Sonic: The Hedgehog” game, “Sonic Frontiers,” released on November 8, 2022. In addition, Sega, the creator of Sonic, will make Sonic the Hedgehog into a movie with Ben Schwartz, who will play the lead role of “Sonic: The Hedgehog.”

Sonic travels worldwide with his sidekick Tails on their plane, “The Tornado,” to assist those in need. Everywhere Sonic goes, he encounters new friends and clashes with new enemies.
