We’re looking to the other side of the world for this week’s spotlight! Recently, Russian animator Kirill Antonov and Studio Zarumo posted some teaser clips for a project called simply Sonic the Movie 2, which they position as a direct sequel to 1996’s Sonic OVA. The two clips showcase some pretty polished animation for a fan project, with some fun meta humor in the first clip to boot. Although all of the characters speak Russian, it’s still perfectly accessible to viewers from other countries – just make sure you enable translated closed captioning on the YouTube videos.
We’ve included both teaser clips below. Studio Zarumo hopes to complete Sonic the Movie 2 in mid-2017. Thanks to sonicroc for bringing his work to our attention. As always, we’re on the lookout for fan works to spotlight, so if you have a project you want the world to know about, send us a link at email@example.com!
