With Valentine’s Day only a week away, we’re getting closer to the grand debut of the new live-action Sonic the Hedgehog movie! Despite the fact that the first promotion of the movie featured True Blue in a form that every fan of the franchise would love to forget (and we won’t let ‘them’ forget either), many now have high hopes for the outcome of the movie. Yeah, it’s kind of weird that they would pick Valentine’s Day to release the movie, but if you think about it no one’s gonna see it but the fanbase themselves – as well as younger Sonic fans. As of right now we don’t know what the overall plot of the story is, so without revealing any potential spoilers, here’s what we know so far…
This Is A Brand New Story
The movie itself is based off of its source material, so the only thing that’s constant is Sonic himself, and Dr. Robotnik (Dr. Eggman). Of course the Dr. Robotnik of this movie is what we can assume he looked like before he got fat, bald, and stressed out over trying to rid himself of the speedy blue hedgehog we all know and love. In the beginning of the new trailer we see Sonic at the most infamous zone, the Green Hill Zone, before speeding off through a giant dimensional ring that transports him to our world; where he now finds himself navigating through life.
Sonic’s Friends (and Rivals) Are Not In The Movie
No sign of Tails, Knuckles, Shadow, or anyone else in any of the trailers, so it’s safe to assume that they’re probably not going to be in the movie. That’s not to say that should this movie do well (and with the amount of money Paramount sunk into this), we might see them in a future sequel. (There’s always a chance that I could be wrong, you know.)
No Chaos Emeralds
Yep. There’s no sign of the seven chaos emeralds anywhere in the trailer(s). As this is a new story, Sonic is said to have a special kind of power deep within his blue quills. Could it be chaos power? We don’t know, but if Eggman (Jim Carrey) is after him for the source of his power, this might justify why Sonic wants to use it to protect his friends as well as the world.
The move comes out next Friday, and as far as we’re concerned, we’re going to go see it! And on that note, that will do it for another awesome filler post.
Until next time, stay nerdy! 😉
