So the interesting thing about this upcoming “Sonic The Hedgehog” live-action film was that the first official trailer surfaced several weeks ago, if not a few months and then it vanished when there was a public outcry about the depiction of the character. Apparently the character looked “too human” for many peoples liking and the studio halted everything to redesign him. Now, only a few months shy of its release we have a brand-new Official Trailer. Let’s take a look down below. I’ve also added the premise and casting for good measure.
The Plot: Sonic, a blue anthropomorphic hedgehog from an alternate dimension, comes to Earth to escape malevolent forces that seek to harness his power of super-speed. After accidentally causing a massive power outage while hiding out in the town of Green Hills, Montana, Sonic is targeted by the government who then hire the tyrannical roboticist Dr. Robotnik to hunt him down. Meanwhile, Green Hills sheriff Tom Wachowski meets Sonic and decides to help him evade capture, collect his rings, and stop Robotnik from using Sonic’s powers for world domination.

Additionally, Garry Chalk (who previously appeared in Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog as Grounder and Sonic Underground as Robotnik respectively) and Riff Raff have been cast in undisclosed roles.
Piercing Ken Thoughts: I’m going to admit that this looks like a lot of fun, but truth be told this is not the kind of film I will see in the theaters. Since I don’t have younger siblings or kids of my own, I can wait until it hits one of the streaming networks or premium channels that I subscribe to. What do you think about this new trailer and the brand-new look of Sonic The Hedgehog? I am looking at you if you were one of the folks that found it necessary to complain about it. I wonder where you people were with that horrible “Godzilla” with Matthew Broderick that looked like an upright iguana more than the King Of The Monsters but I digress. Chime in down below and I will see you next time.
