"It will be live-action", he went on to say, adding a level of intrigue to the production process as Dr. Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik is usually shown as having an ovoid body type. Jeff Fowler will direct with Neal H. Moritz producing and Tim Miller and Toby Ascher executive producing. The film is now scheduled to hit theaters on November 15, 2019, so stay tuned for more.
