After several minutes, Netflix deleted the announcement tweet, which sparked speculation on social media if it was unveiled early.
SEGA did not make an official announcement at the time of publication.
For some Sonic fans, the company “WildBrain” might sound familiar. It is because they have been involved with the Sonic series in the past. The Halifax-based company were involved and own all three DiC Sonic cartoons: Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic the Hedgehog (commonly referred as SatAM), and Sonic Underground.
WildBrain also operates their own Sonic the Hedgehog YouTube channel, where fans can view their Sonic library.
