How long have you been a Sonic The Hedgehog fan? Did you know he’s been a video game icon for almost two decades?!
Sonic The Hedgehog
This November, the beloved Sonic is coming to the big screen in a live action movie, keeping intact what generations of people love most about the character – his mischievous streak and sarcastic personality.
Sonic The Hedgehog is a live-action adventure comedy based on the global blockbuster video game 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.
Yes, you read that right! Jim Carrey is back on the big screen for this fun, action-packed movie! From what I’ve seen, his performance as villain, Dr. Robotnik, looks incredibly funny.
In fact, the film is packed with exciting action and tons of laughs that will be fun for longtime Sonic fans and audiences of all ages.
I know my kids, especially the older ones, are excited about this new chapter with Sonic. It highlights Sonic’s backstory by exploring how he came to Earth and how he deals with being an outsider in strange world.
He’s a whole new speed of hero. Watch the new trailer for Sonic The Hedgehog, in theaters this November.
I’m sure we’ve all felt like an outsider at some point and will find a way to relate to Sonic.
