New Sonic the Hedgehog Trailer Released
The title says it all really…
So if you’re on Twitter at the moment it’s pretty unavoidable to notice the Sonic the Hedgehog movie has got its first major trailer out today. After many months of people speculating exactly what Sonic was going to look like having seen his strangely lean blue legs, fans and skeptics alike have got their answer.
From what the trailer reveals it seems that there are two major plot points and a nice reference to the setting being in ‘Green Hills’. Sonic says he needs to save our world, lord knows from what, but the more interesting plot line seems to revolve around Dr. Eggman / Robotnik (whatever you prefer) trying to capture Sonic to ‘see what makes it tick’.
The trailer is filled to the brim with strange designs and one massive inconsistency which I’m sure will be addressed in the film. There would never be a plot hole in a movie about Sonic right? I mean the fact that he can stop time and drum bullets flying towards him in time with Gangsta’s Paradise by Coolio, but also can look mildly shocked when he gets shot with a dart gun has to be mentioned somewhere right? Right? I’m also sure in the long line of video game movies that this one is going to be great that exceeds the average ratings of other beloved franchises.
If you don’t indeed have Twitter, I can’t recommend enough that you go and look at the hot takes being made about everything from Sonic’s human-like teeth to the polarising opinions on Jim Carrey being Dr. Eggman / Robotnik (again man, whatever suits you). Gaming discourse has truly been brought to life with this trailer, and we await the film’s release in November so we can finally start to make sense of it all.
Anyway, here is the trailer for you to enjoy below.
