Sonic Prime is an incredible example of what can happen when strong partners come together to supercharge a beloved, known IP with amazing new content. Sonic the Hedgehog has a massive and very passionate fanbase around the world, devoted to the ‘blue blur’. It has been fantastic to watch the licensing programme for Sonic Prime really take off in markets across the globe. Together with SEGA, with whom we already have a long-standing partnership on the classic Sonic the Hedgehog brand, we are committed to delivering many more new and creative ways for fans to engage with Sonic on and off screen. With more episodes of Sonic Prime coming this July to Netflix, we know this adventure has only just begun.Maarten Weck
