Sonic The Hedgehog: What We Know (So Far) About The Movie…

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! 😉

Sonic The Hedgehog Movie: They FINALLY Fixed It!!!

Awhile back we made a post about the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog movie and how TERRIBLE they made Sonic look, but if there’s one thing I’ve learned about the fanbase of this franchise, it’s NOT dead! In fact (and we’ll admit that we’re on the side of the fanbase on this), we hope Hollywood and Paramount learned their lesson on this, and now that they’ve actually listened (yeah, we couldn’t believe it either), we should do our part and go see the movie – if you’re a Sonic fan, that is! Although it’s kinda weird that the movie is coming out on Valentine’s Day, we can tell by the NEW and GREATLY IMPROVED trailer, that it’ll be a fun and wild ride.

Sonic The Hedgehog: #GottaFixFast!

Hey guys n’ girls, sorry we’ve been away for so long. A lot has been happening life-wise while we’ve been away, but we’re super happy and grateful that you guys have stuck around and supported us through everything. With all of that being said, we’re pretty sure that half of you have seen the new trailer for the Sonic The Hedgehog movie. Before you read this post we want you to do us a BIG favor and bear with us on how we feel about it (the trailer), as the World’s Fastest Hedgehog has meant so much to our lives as well as yours – if you’re a diehard fan.

As of right now, the best way to describe the trailer that we’ve seen would be an old saying that you might have heard of; “if it ain’t broke, DON’T FIX IT!” If Sonic Boom has taught us anything in terms of character design, stick with what works! It’s not all bad however, as a Hollywood national treasure is playing one of our favorite villains of the franchise; Jim Carrey. You remember him from Dumb & Dumber, the live-action Grinch, and of course Bruce Almighty. If Hollywood wants to work in the anime and gaming world, they need to learn their history and do their homework. Besides, we all know what happened when DB Evolution out; you know you screwed up when the entire fanbase wants to grill your a** down to the white meat!

In the mist of all of this Nintendo is somewhere taking notes on what NOT to do, when they get ready to release the trailer for the new Super Mario movie. (Which from what we heard is being produced by Illumination, the same guys behind Despicable Me.) Anyway, all I can say about the Sonic trailer is this; return Sonic back to his Sonic Forces design (but you can make his fur live-action), have Roger Craig Smith be the voice instead of whoever is doing it now, put Jim Carrey in a fat suit, make him put on a bald-cap piece, digitally make his nose and mustache longer and bigger, give him those coke-bottle shades and BAM! In fact, check this picture out to get the idea.

This is what Dr. Eggman SHOULD look like!

As we’ve said before, we’re doing everything we can to not turn this into a rant, but when it comes to anime and video games you can’t give it the MARVEL treatment! The live-action Ghost in the Shell did it right (despite a few critics), as they got the Japanese director involved in the creative process. Alright, that’s my two cents on the issue as well as this post. In the meantime what do you guys think? Let us know in the comments below. Until next post, stay nerdy! 😉
