We also know Paramount is planning to follow a similar blueprint to the upcoming Detective Pikachu movie, starring Ryan Reynolds.

Speaking of Reynolds, the upcoming Sonic movie will have Deadpool director Tim Miller on board as executive producer. While we’re not exactly sure how the creative geniuses behind this film will recreate the beloved video game character, what we do know is there will be a combination of a few production and post-production techniques.

The plot, for those of you who didn’t grow up on the Sonic games, follows Sonic and his friends as they collect coins and prevent the latest evil plans of Doctor Eggman.

Sonic will be voiced by Ben Schwartz (BoJack Horseman, Parks And Recreation). Riff Raff, Carrey and Schwartz will join James Marsden, Neal McDonough and more to round out the cast. Sonic hits theaters Nov. 15, and you can check out the trailer below.
