The recent MAGFest 11 saw the debut of Blue Cor Studios’ Sonic the Hedgehog fan film. Directed by Eddie Lebron (who was responsible for the Mega Man fan film that made the rounds last year), and featuring Jaleel White as the voice of Sonic, the 20 minute short should be a lot of fun for fans of the Sonic franchise (unless you hate “talking” Sonic.)
The live-action/CG hybrid fanfilm is cheesy, but the quality is still head and shoulders above most fanfilms out there. The action scenes and special effects are just on par with western super sentai shows, so if you enjoy the Power Rangers, Lebron’s Sonic the Hedgehog won’t turn you off. The fact that it’s long enough to be a TV pilot episode makes it so much better, when other fanfilm creators barely even break through the 5 minute mark or are content with just creating mock teaser trailers.
