Sonic the hedgehog is definitely a name 90s kids can relate to. SEGA revolutionized the 8-bit gaming industry with a lot of games, and Sonic the Hedgehog was one of the major ones. The game featured a super-powered hedgehog which has a host of abilities. For starters, he can run faster than the speed of sound. This enables him to break and smash through all obstacles in his path. What’s more, the loveable character could also curl up into a destructive ball, which is nearly unstoppable. The character has almost 70 games to himself now, and on April 30 2019, Paramount Pictures and SEGA released the first trailer for the much-awaited movie. 

Now the fans were waiting for this movie eagerly, so a lot of expectations were resting on it. On top of that, the bar is still set high from all the movie fanatics still reeling in the aftermath of action and emotions present in Avengers: Endgame. However, when the trailer came out, the Sonic fans were disappointed to say at the least. To put forward a summary, the official Youtube trailer for the movie has a Dislike-to-Like ratio of 1.55. That’s a awfully high number of dislikes for a movie that a lot of fan following, especially before the trailer dropped.

Sonic has been awkwardly designed as a “human-hedgehog” fusion creature, which is more human than it is supposed to be. The trailer tries desperately to make Sonic more at home with all the humanoid expressions and actions. What’s more, the character from the movie has a set of extremely human-like teeth, which deprive Sonic of his classic “hedgehog” look. It’s almost like the movie is not Sonic The Hedgehog. It’s either Sonic The HedgeHuman or Sonic The HumanHog.

The storyline depicts Sonic, who is voiced by Ben Schwartz, trying to save the earth from the evil Dr. Robotnik (who is played by Jim Carrey) in association with a policeman (played by James Marsden). The trailer is set against the legendary “Gangsta’s Paradise” soundtrack, which would have actually enhanced the trailer hadn’t it been for the kid-hedgehog combo leading the movie. Sonic The Hedgehog makes it way to movie theatres on November 8, 2019.
