Here’s the first trailer for the Sonic the Hedgehog movie

Earlier today we got a first look at Jim Carrey as Dr Robotnik in the live-action adaption of [checks note] Sonic the Hedgehog. For some reason, we’re getting a live movie featuring the beloved character first seen in the 16-bit platforming classic on the Mega Drive/Genesis. This is not a bad dream and there’s now even a trailer to prove it. Check it out below.

I don’t have a lot to say about it, to be honest. He looks weird, he seems to be from outer space and I’m still processing this. Like why they chose Coolio’s Gangster’s Paradise as the soundtrack? Can somebody please at least explain this to me?!

The movie is out in November this year and sees Sonic voiced by Ben Schwartz. He’s joined by Carrey as Ivo “Eggman” Robotnik, who doesn’t seem much like his game character counterpart until the end of the trailer, and also has James Marsden as Tom Wachowski, the sheriff of Green Hills. VFX artist Jeff Fowler is making his live-action directing debut with this film, which is based off a script from Patrick Casey, Josh Miller and Oren Uziel.

SONIC THE HEDGEHOG is a live-action adventure comedy based on the global blockbuster videogame franchise from Sega that centers on the infamously brash bright blue hedgehog. The film follows the (mis)adventures of Sonic as he navigates the complexities of life on Earth with his newfound – human – best friend Tom Wachowski (James Marsden). Sonic and Tom join forces to try and stop the villainous Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey) from capturing Sonic and using his immense powers for world domination. The film also stars Tika Sumpter and Ben Schwartz as the voice of Sonic.

    I’m shocked to see Jim Carrey starring as Jim Carrey. Completely, totally, shocked.

    I’m getting Pokemon live-action vibes here. He just looks – weird! The Pokemon live-action characters gave me the heebie-jeebies, but after I watched more trailers, they’ve grown on me due to the humour. This looks like it will have a hardtime growing on me.

      Nintendo loves their franchises. I believe a lot of care went into making it. I also believe it is the reason why we got Detective Pikachu instead of a Pokemon Live action adaptation of the game series/anime. Sega has made literal shit tons of bad decisions when it comes to Sonic.

    So a state in the US loses power for a night and it’s a national security risk. Here it’s just your average daily load shedding.

    Taking a shot for every time they play the retro coin sound will make this movie much more interesting.

    Hope he can still get his old day job back.

    This could be a cutesy funny movie if it wasn’t for the horrifying look of Sonic
