Sonic Boom | Character Shadows

The Sonic franchise isn’t unfamiliar with expanding into other media outlets. When it comes to animated shows and movies, Sonic the Hedgehog has starred in many since his debut on the Sega Genesis in 1991. Now, it looks like SEGA wants to take another crack at it, as Sonic will be receiving a new animated series called Sonic Boom in 2014. The series is a collaboration between SEGA of America and French animation company Genao Productions.

Under the eyes of Takashi Iizuka, the head of Sonic Team at SEGA, Sonic Boom is sure to stay true to the source material. The new animated series will feature Sonic and Tails in star roles as they continue their long battle with Dr. Eggman and his mechanized army. Other fan favorites, like Knuckles and Amy Rose, are confirmed to be in the show, as well.

Hiroyuki Miyazaki, SEGA’s Chief Content Officer for Sonic, had this to say about the series:

By teaming up with world-class partners in television animation like Cartoon Network, Genao Productions and GULLI, we’re ensuring that the Sonic legacy will be introduced to a new generation of children across the globe.

Sonic Boom will be targeted at children from the ages of 6–11. It will premiere on Cartoon Network in the U.S. and on CANAL J and GULLI in France.
