Sonic the Hedgehog was originally slated for release on November 8, 2019, but after a very negative reaction to Sonic’s design in the first trailer, which was released on April 30th, Paramount decided to delay the film until February 14, 2020, pledging to redesign the main character. Today, they released a new trailer showing exactly what they’ve been working on these past few months. Read more for the video and additional information.
In this film, Tom Wachowski, a San Francisco Police Department officer-turned-newly appointed Sheriff of Green Hills, Montana, travels from Green Hills to San Francisco to assist Sonic, an extradimensional, anthropomorphic blue hedgehog who can run at supersonic speeds. The speedster does this to evade capture by the government, collecting his rings, and defeat an insane scientist named Doctor Robotnik.
