American dress-up company Disguise has revealed that – as part of a deal with SEGA America, Inc. for Paramount Pictures’ feature film, it will be designing and manufacturing costumes and accessories inspired by characters from Sonic the Hedgehog 2.
The new collection is an extension of the multi-year, global toy licensing deal SEGA of America forged with Disguise parent company JAKKS Pacific 2019. Sonic the Hedgehog 2 brings an exciting cast of characters to the table, making it a great fit for dress-up products.
“Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is sure to be a runaway hit in 2022,” said Craig Drobis, senior vice president of marketing at JAKKS Pacific. “Given the success of the first movie and performance of our current Sonic the Hedgehog product line, we are excited to continue to develop toys that follow along with Sonic’s next great movie adventure.”
He continued: “[We will] continue to bring to life these iconic characters in a wide variety of new and unique ways for kids and fans alike.”
“We’ve seen such a great response from fans to the Sonic the Hedgehog products created by JAKKS Pacific,” said Alex Gomez, licensing director at SEGA of America, “and we’re thrilled to continue working with them to celebrate Sonic the Hedgehog 2.”
