Sony Pictures Entertainment is teaming with Marza Animation Planet, a CG animation film production company of the Sega Sammy Group. Sonic has been one of the world’s biggest gaming icons, with more than 350 million units of games associated with the character sold, including both packaged and digital games sold on platforms such as console, mobile, and tablet.
