It might have had a delayed release and complete redesign of its main character, but the Sonic the Hedgehog movie finally arrives next month. A new trailer is set to screen during the Super Bowl this weekend, and it has now been released online.
The new Sonic trailer starts with a series of high-profile sports stars–footballers Michael Thomas and Christian McCaffrey, sprinter Allyson Felix, and stock car racer Kyle Bush–talking about the incredible athletic ability of the legendary hedgehog. The rest of the trailer delivers lots of funny and action-packed clips from the film–check it out below:
Sonic the Hedgehog is directed by Jeff Fowler and hits theaters on February 14, 2020. Sonic is voiced by Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation), with Jim Carrey as the evil Dr. Robotnik. Westworld’s James Marsden will feature as a state trooper who catches onto Sonic’s super speed. Early box predictions suggest that the film will have a strong opening weekend at the box office.
The Sonic the Hedgehog movie has gone through a turbulent production, with a full character redesign being commissioned after the film’s disastrous first trailer. Thankfully, a team led by Sonic comic illustrator Tyson Hesse gave gaming’s premiere hedgehog a much more lovable look.
