If you’re a fan of Sonic, these top highlights will surely make you want to watch the movie adaptation now! If you’re not a fan, well, these highlights will give you reasons why you should check out the movie today as well! Sonic the Hedgehog is just one of the Japanese video game series that has a film adaptation in English. This live-action and animated film is directed by Jeff Fowler. It stars Jim Carrey as Dr. Ivo Robotnik, James Marsden as the sheriff, and Ben Schwartz as Sonic's voice. It was supposed to hit screens in November 2019, however, due to the criticism received for the CGI of Sonic which was shown on the first trailer, Paramount Pictures decided to postpone the release date. The CGI of Sonic has gained criticism from the potential viewers due to its eyes and human-like teeth. Some people thought it looked horrible, while some just made fun of it. Hence, Sonic redesign was made, which led to the delay of the movie release for three more months.

Meanwhile, this live-action movie is currently hitting screens this February 2020. It now features the new design of Sonic. If you haven’t seen the movie yet, be prepared! Spoilers ahead! Forget about the criticism and check out the top highlights of Sonic the Hedgehog movie! 

  1. 1Tails from a ring portal


    Tails' appearance at the end of the film has surprised a lot of viewers. This possibly means that Sonic the Hedgehog may have a sequel, and in case it does, obviously, Tails would be part of it. Sonic's best friend, Tails, is a two-tailed fox who happens to appear from a ring portal to look for Sonic.

  1. 2Sonic's magical rings


    If Sonic games allow players to collect golden rings either for survival or for extra life, Sonic the Hedgehog movie highlights the magical rings that allow him to travel from one planet to another. Interestingly, these magical rings take him to Earth, where he finds a place to call home, and where he meets a human-friend.

  2. 3Sonic the Hedgehog's new design


    In case you missed it, Sonic's CGI which was shown in the first trailer of the movie has gained criticism for having a look quite different from what Sonic looks like in games. Because of that, the movie release date was delayed for three months. Paramount Pictures decided to redesign Sonic. This means that the one you will see/you've seen in the film is already the redesign version of Sonic. This is one of the top highlights you don't want to miss out because Sonic the Hedgehog in the film now looks closer to his game origins.

  1. 4Sonic the Hedgehog and his human-friend Tom


    The unexpected friendship developed between an extraterrestrial blue hedgehog and a human is one of the top highlights of the movie. When Sonic gets into the Earth, he would always want to have a real friend. Luckily, he meets a good-hearted sheriff, Tom, who eventually helps him to recover the magical rings.

  2. 5Jim Carrey as the villain of Sonic the Hedgehog


    One of the top highlights of the Sonic the Hedgehog film is when Jim Carrey pulled off his portrayal of the main antagonist. Jim Carrey was able to play the role of Doctor Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik smoothly, and how he will plan for his revenge in future films (if there would be one), is something to look forward to.
