90’s babies will be lining up early for this.

Sony Pictures Entertainment and Sega Sammy’s CG animation film production company Marza Animation Planet announced their plans to develop a film based on Sonic the Hedgehog, a $1 billion franchise, on Tuesday. The film will be produced by 22 Jump Street producer Neal H. Moritz and written by UCB’s Susser and Robichaux.

According to a statement from Columbia Pictures, Sonic will reunite Sonic with “some of the most revered and infamous characters of the franchise,” and that is including Dr. Eggman.

President of production Hannah Minghella said in the same statement:

“There are limitless stories to tell with a character like Sonic the Hedgehog, and a built-in international fan base. Along with our wonderful creative partners at Marza, we’re looking to capture everything that generations of fans know and love about Sonic while also growing his audience wider than ever before.”
