Netflix announced in a post from its NX Twitter account that the company would make a 3D animated TV show based on the adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog. Since then, Netflix officials took the tweet down, but the news had already spread throughout the fanbase of the beloved extraterrestrial hedgehog. The series will debut in 2022, and the only thing that is certain about it is that it will be centered around the main character of the almost thirty-year-old SEGA media franchise.
The New Sonic Series Is Produced By SEGA, WildBrain, and Man of Action Entertainment
Man of Action Entertainment and WildBrain Ltd. are collaborating with SEGA to produce the new Sonic project. While WildBrain is a production company that has made many of the popular children’s shows for TV, Man of Action Entertainment is best known for its Big Hero 6 and Ben 10 TV series. Certainly, such a partnership looks promising, and fans can rest easy knowing that their favorite hedgehog is in capable hands.
While Netflix’s teaser image is the only hint fans got regarding the new production, it does reveal some details. Most notably, the new artwork shows the silhouette of the character Sonic, which follows the modern 3D design and does away with the stubbier and chubbier classic Sonic looks.
SEGA Might Be Abandoning Old and More Recent Designs for the Appearance of Sonic
Fans quickly assumed that the teaser image is representative of the animated show and reveals how the SEGA mascot will appear in the products. This could mean that SEGA is largely moving away from both classic designs like the one from Sonic Mania and the more recent ones from the Sonic Boom spin-off TV show and games.
The new TV series about the extraterrestrial hedgehog will become the latest TV show on Netflix based on video games. The largest streaming service provider is also working on Splinter Cell, Assassin’s Creed, and Resident Evil series. Still, Netflix is no stranger to such productions and already has several seasons of its mature audience-oriented animated Castlevania show available for its viewers. The latter is currently enjoying huge popularity among the users of the streaming platform.
This Couple Helped Feed The Homeless On Their Wedding Day
Plenty of couples have been forced to change wedding plans this year because of the ongoing crisis. That’s not something that Tyler and Melanie Tapajna were going to let get them down, though. They managed to still tie the knot while also doing some good in the world – feeding the homeless at their reception.
Change Of Plan
The couple was initially supposed to have 150 guests at their wedding. However, such a big ceremony simply wasn’t possible with everything going on in the world. So, they changed their plans and organized something more intimate for just their friends and family. A lot of plans needed to be altered to make this happen. After all, they’d already arranged for things like the catering before the crisis happened. However, rather than canceling 150-people’s worth of food, they opted to do something special with it.
Feeding The Homeless
Tyler and Melanie decided that the food should go to people who needed it most – the homeless. So, they spoke with the nonprofit organization Laura’s Home about donating it to the women and children who they cater to. Their request was approved, and plans were swiftly put in place for everything to go ahead. The couple didn’t just want to give the food away and be done with it, though. They also wanted to serve it.
After tying the knot in their intimate ceremony, the Tapajnas then went straight to Laura’s Home, put on a hairnet and gloves, and got to work. They didn’t even change out of their outfits. It wasn’t the reception that the couple had planned, but in a way, it was better. They got to do some good in the world on what was the happiest day of their lives.
This crisis may have forced the Tapanjas to change their wedding plans, but in doing so, it ended up benefitting more people than they could have ever imagined.
