An important part of the Sonic universe
Sonic Prime comes to Netflix on December 15th, 2022, and it’s going to be a must-watch for diehard Sonic fans. Why, you ask? Because Sonic Prime is very much canon for the Sonic series!
In an interview with Comicbook.com, executive producer Logan McPherson opened up on just how Sonic Prime is canon for the franchise, and how the team worked closely with SEGA to make sure everything worked.
…it is canon and it does draw upon the existing mythology from the games. And we work very closely with Sega creatively to establish that. We obviously want to bring a new audience into that mythology and introduce them to the amazing 30-year history that has been established over the years, but also launch a new story that can take the characters and the situations to very unexpected places. So we really use the mythology as a springboard to create that familiarity for fans that have grown up with the games or are still fans today, and then create some unexpected twists and turns that take us to new and undiscovered places that a really broad audience can enjoy.
