Sega America and Paramount Pictures to co-produce Sonic the Hedgehog film

Is this because Nintendo is making a Mario movie?

Due out on November 15, 2019.

Sega of America and Paramount Pictures will co-produce the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog feature film, which will premiere in theaters in the United States on November 15, 2019 following an international rollout, Sega announced.

In addition to video games, this provides Sega with a fantastic opportunity to share Sonic with everyone and we can’t wait to reveal more to eager audiences in the future.”
