It's official, Netflix has picked up a new Sonic series "Sonic Prime" for 24 episodes to be produced at WildBrain Vancouver. Man of Action (the Ben 10 guys) are show running.

On the one hand, the synopsis does sound promising, and I like the idea of a more serious Sonic cartoon after the comedy-laden Boom. That said, I'm not sure how I feel about Man of Action being in charge. Sure Ben 10 was good, and Generator Rex was a gem gone too soon, but every other show they worked on feels bland and by-the-numbers. Perhaps its due to corporate mandates not letting them loose? Whatever it is, I am interested in seeing how this'll turn out.

I hope for a Mania style

Uhhh yeah. They've had shows pretty consistently, the comics are STILL selling to this day, and they just had a highly successful movie.

The Sonic movie last year is the highest-grossing video game film adaptation of all time in North America
