Oh. It got deleted.

Twitter's crap has really gotten out of hand >.<

The only information given was in a tweet, and the tweet has since been deleted. The tweet, which has been screencapped, did say that WildBrain and Man of Action are making the show.

I don't have much faith in Netflix to produce something good; in this case, I dare them to surprise me for a change. Given that WildBrain and Man of Action are making the show, they may actually have a shot at giving us something decent.

It was deleted by the account.

 

It looks like it was a premature announcement. Maybe the deal was reached within the last few days. With the launch in 2022, it would be unwise for the official announcement to come now.

 

There's also a fake image on what it's about.

Well, we know about it now. I agree it seems weird to announce it TWO YEARS beforehand, but then the movie was announced in 2014 and released back in February. My guess is that Sega felt pressured into the announcement after fans called them out on their radio silence after promises of BIG NEWS all year. Sonic always seems to have a history of troubled production. :P

Personally, I'm cautiously excited. It could be good, so long as it avoids the same sort of trappings X and Boom did. The problem is, as ever, how much SEGA's mandates are going to affect what the characters can do and what stories can be told.

Well it doesn't help that the film went through a quasi-development hell cycle with it being moved from Sony to Paramount. I think if Sony knew it was going to encounter problems it wouldn't have been announced at the time. So I dont think it's fully a fair comparison.

Well this year is a bit of an anomaly because of the beervirus. I think they had a big roadmap planned out with announcements, developments, etc. but with the world basically shutting down in March I think a lot of their plans got delayed because of it. Had they known that everything was going to grind to a halt I dont think they would have made that promise. But again, who knew this year was going to entail? I mean look at Hollywood with nearly every film being put on hold and multiple games being delayed because the changes due.

 

Boom really wasn't that bad when you look at it what it was: more of a modern AoStH. The 4th wall breaks were great though. I'll be curious what the show will be.

So far, this is all we know. Which is not surprising, as nothing from any of the comics has showed up in the shows. At least ever sense Athair showed up in Underground anyway.

Are we doing another canon then?

Honestly, they should just have everything aligned

So guys, I have your answer right here. The answer is yes...?

As for everything aligned, well...

http://segabits.com/blog/2021/02/01/netflix-and-sega-announce-sonic-prime-a-24-episode-3d-animated-series-releasing-in-2022/

So it's about Sonic trying to save his universe, as well as the Multiverse!

Yep, we're getting a Multiverse story.

So here's something interesting: Wildbrain currently holds the DiC library rights. So therefore, Sonic Prime could use material from AoStH, SatAM, and Underground if they really are going for a multiverse story.

 

I'm also going to point out it's extremely unlikely that those three will be used at all.

Only thing i've seen is some guy name Justin Peniston is one of the writers. His resume is... nonexistent as he's only written 3 episodes total between 3 series. So one a piece. However, that's kinda common in cartoons now-a-days as usually there's a collective and one person does one episode and then someone else does another one and so on and so on.

Ian Flynn has said he's not currently attached to it but the way he makes it sound is that he's being considered or he has been in talks.

That makes me concerned that it will be disjointed, a multiverse perspective ultimately cheapens a plot on fundamental philosophical level. Hard Multiverse Theory basically states all our choices really don’t matter, it’s all a random number generator where all potentials are actualized anyways. You make no significant cosmic differences to existence as existence allows all the  negative alternatives anyways. Heros cannot never be heroic then, the struggle of good and evil meaningless. 
 

 You can possibly do alternatives and avoid this background philosophical nihilism. But seeing how these things go...I doubt the lore will be rich enough to justify alternative Sonics in a way them makes them distinct movers and characters. I expect aesthetics over substance and a chasing of that choppily-animated (and overated) Spider-Man movie I never liked.

I'm gonna assume it won't be disjointed as the process probably goes through the committee with them agreeing to the base plot line, the writer writes the episode and the committee double checks to see if it all fits.

 

Again, I don't know right now. There's been very little things to note. I'm gonna assume sometime later in the year we will get a bit info dump.
