Jim Carrey’s latest movie featuring the classic video game’s superfast hedgehog is lighting up cinemas around the globe but will Sonic the Hedgehog be making its way onto Netflix over the coming years? Let’s take a look.
It’s been an extended road to Sonic the Hedgehog including an entire redesign of Sonic after a disastrous first trailer.
The movie features Jim Carrey who plays Dr Robtonik, Ben Schwartz who voices the title character and James Marsden who plays Tom Wachowski.
Movie will be in theaters soon
The movie is out in cinemas as of February 2020. The movie is formed and distributed by Paramount who only recently struck an output affect Netflix for brand spanking new movies. They’ve also produced the likes of The Cloverfield Paradox for Netflix within the past also.
Will Netflix the US get Sonic the Hedgehog?
Although Netflix within the US does get Paramount movies (including the new ones from the aforementioned output deal) it doesn’t get new titles.
Paramount currently features a longstanding output affect Epix (owned by MGM) which is thanks to ending in 2022. That means all new movies head straight thereto service. There are rumblings that Netflix plans to buy out MGM but for now, they’re just rumours.
So you’ll expect Sonic the Hedgehog to get on Epix at some point later in 2020.
Will Sonic the Hedgehog get on Netflix outside the US?
Outside of the US, where it’s a touch harder to trace output deals with distributors and streamers, you’ll get luckier.
Netflix Canada has gotten most of the 2019 Paramount additions including Pet Semetary, Wonder Park and Bumblebee. Assuming nothing has changed, we’d expect to ascertain Sonic the Hedgehog on Netflix Canada by the top of 2020.
Netflix UK, Australia, Netherlands, Greece, and various other regions all have recently got the 2017 Paramount movie, Downsizing. That suggests Netflix is on the second window which might mean we see Sonic the Hedgehog added within the subsequent three years.
