We’re sorry to report that there’s no way to get an official Sonic costume.

We Are Finally Getting a Sonic The Hedgehog Movie
After nearly 25 years of waiting, it looks like fans of Sonic The Hedgehog will finally get a movie. It’s been announced that Sony Pictures has acquired the movie rights for SEGA’s iconic character. The film will be produced by Neal H. Moritz and Original Film with Toby Ascher executive producing and Dmitri Johnson co-producing. Moritz is the producer behind 21 Jump Street, Ride Along and I Am Legend among others.
Exciting New Details Emerge About The Movie
If you grew up playing Sonic the Hedgehog games and are a fan of the franchise, it’s time to get excited. Reports have emerged that there will be an official Sonic costume available for purchase from a new movie starring Sonic. This costume is expected to drop this October and will retail for $250. The film is set to release in 2020. As we wait patiently for more information, take some time to revisit your favorite Sonic game on YouTube or Netflix today.
Could This Be Sega’s Last Hope?
The company is releasing a Sonic costume this Halloween. And while it may be just a one-time thing, it’s worth noting that Sega has been looking for ways to reignite interest in their mascot for years now. In 2015, they launched a new cartoon called Sonic Boom and then tried to revitalize him by making his original games available on mobile devices. But there have been some challenges. For starters, the first two episodes of Sonic Boom were criticized for being too scary. Plus, those old classic games are not free; players have to pay $2-$3 per game each time they want to play them.
Will The Movie Work?
Fans of the classic video game series will be excited to learn that Sega has a new line of officially licensed costumes for adults and children. The costumes can be purchased from Target stores across the country. There are four different styles including: Classic Sonic, Modern Tails, Classic Amy Rose, and Classic Knuckles. The costumes are available for purchase in adult sizes for $29.99 and child sizes starting at $14.99.
