DIC Ent. is coming to Cannes with a healthy sampling of its Sonic the Hedgehog library under its arm. The independent childrens’ entertainment producer will be offering its Totally Sonic! Package, which includes a private collection of never-before-seen episodes available for the first time to international buyers in all major languages.
The Totally Sonic! package consists of 91 half-hour animated episodes including digitally re-mastered, color-enhanced versions of original episodes from Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic Christmas with new contemporary music and main titles. Additionally, DIC will unveil Secret Sonic– all-new director’s cut episodes.
The series is based on the title character from the popular line of Sega video games. Sonic uses a combination of lightning speed and fast thinking to lead a band of freedom fighters against the evil Dr. Robotnik and his robotic forces, who have enslaved the planet of Mobius.
The release of Totally Sonic! coincides with the launch of the new Sonic the Hedgehog landmark video game from Sega, which debuted this month as the No. 1 selling video game on the Nintendo platform.
