    Not exactly a panel, but there's going to be a huge Sonic event on Friday, which will have some anniversary announcements. It's at 6PM (Pacific) and will last for a couple hours from my understanding. The event will be streamed on Twitch, which you can view here. While I don't anticipate anything on the anime side, (we could still get an Anniversary anime project or an anime announcement, since Sonic's had at least one each decade) figured it'd still be of interest of some people here.
