SONIC THE HEDGEHOG Speeding To Digital HD Early; Full 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray & DVD Details Revealed

While Sonic the Hedgehog is currently the second highest-grossing movie of the year, Paramount is still bringing it to Digital a few weeks early to help bring some joy to families during this trying time.

Following a number of other recent films moving up their digital release dates, Paramount Home Entertainment has announced today that their smash hit Sonic the Hedgehog will also be made available to purchase early on Digital HD, starting March 31st.

It will be then followed by its official 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD launch on May 19th.

The Jeff Fowler-directed video game movie adaptation, which starred Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation), James Marsden (X-Men) and Jim Carrey (Kidding), is currently the second highest-grossing film of the year, having earned over $306.8 million worldwide ($146M domestic; $160.7M foreign) on an estimated $95 million production budget, which should all but guarantee a sequel in the not-so-distant future. 

The home video combo pack will contain a wide variety of special features, including exclusive commentary from director Jeff Fowler and star Ben Schwartz, deleted scenes, a hilarious blooper reel, the "Speed Me Up" music video and tons of featurette that will take you behind the making of this movie and possibly preview the next.
