Paramount Confirms 3rd Sonic the Hedgehog FIlm and an Original TV Series

16.March.2022 | ANIME&GAME / MOVIE

While Sonic the Hedgehog 2 isn’t coming to theaters until April 8, Paramount has confirmed that a third film is already in the works. A Paramount+ streaming series based on Sonic’s sidekick Knuckles is also coming soon, and will star Idris Elba. 

 

The first Sonic the Hedgehog film is the highest-grossing movie based on a video game to ever be released in the US, grossing $320 million worldwide. The sequel is scheduled to release in the west on April 8 and in Japan this summer. The cast from the first film has returned for the second installment, with Jeff Fowler directing and Josh Miller and Pat Casey providing the screenplay.

 

Inspired by Sega’s video game franchise, Sonic the Hedgehog tells the story of Sonic, the world’s fastest hedgehog, and his adventures after arriving on Earth. The first live-action adventure comedy film was released in 2020 and starred Ben Schwartz as the voice of Sonic, James Marsden, Tika Sumpter, and Jim Carrey as Dr. Robotnik.

  • Go Glamping Under the Stars Indoors with New Sega Toys x RIHGA Royal Hotel Kyoto Collab

    12.August.2021 | SPOT

    ​It may seem like a strange collaboration, but RIHGA Royal Hotel Kyoto is teaming up with Sega Toys to offer a limited-time hotel stay guests will never forget. From August 12, 2021 to March 31, 2022, visitors can stay in a tropical jungle-themed room beneath the stars. Sega Toys is well-known for their ‘Homestar’ series of home-use planetariums, and the new ‘twinkling stars’ functionality will make its debut in this magical room. 

     

     

    Starry Sky Glamping Room

     

    Sega Toys ‘Homestar,’ On Sale August 12, 2021: Guest Room


    ‘Galaxy Ttungcaron,’ created by RIHGA Royal Hotel Kyoto’s Chef Pâtissier

     

    Red Ring Solar Eclipse Ttungcaron

     

     

    This unique ‘Starry Sky Glamping at the Hotel’ plan will commemorate the launch of a new ‘Homestar’ home-use planetarium, set to go on sale August 12, 2021. These popular items have sold over 1.7 million units, and those who book this jungle-themed room will be able to go stargazing while in the comfort of their hotel room. Originally, this plan was concocted by female staff at the hotel as a way to provide comfort and happiness to those who have been unable to travel easily, or who have experienced lifestyle changes due to the current situation around the world.

     

    A reservation won’t have guests walking into just any hotel room: one room has been completely stripped of furniture, and is completely decorated with imitation greenery to create an immersive jungle atmosphere. Tents, rugs, and lanterns are all provided, making it feel like you’re really in the great outdoors. When it’s time to sleep, feel free to use the Dream Switch, which projects moving picture-books onto the ceiling–perfect for children! If you have a sweet tooth, try the scrumptious ttungcarons developed by the hotel’s Chef Pâtissier and currently hugely popular on social media. The outer space theme continues with the limited ‘Homestar’ ttungcaron set, featuring a Red Ring Solar Eclipse sweet, and the Sega Toys collaboration ttungcaron, with images of the Earth, the Moon, and Jupiter!

     

    This hotel glamping experience is the perfect way to refresh and recharge. Would you give it a try?
