First off... eww:

Second off:  Eggman's called Robotnik.  Lends some credence.

Also lending credence: https://toywiz.com/sonic-the-hedgehog-movie-baby-sonic-85-inch-plush/

Wait, there is going to be plush version of a Baby Sonic? Does that confirmed that there will be a younger version of Sonic appearing in the movie?

Rumors spoke of Sonic being raised on Earth. By an owl, too... old man owl confirmed

 

Toys were inevitable. It still bothers me that they're going full throttle on the Dr Robotnik name, which hasn't been Eggman's name in nearly 20 years (nor was it ever if you're Japanese). Why now?

20 years, not 10...

Because this is a movie about a talking hedgehog. Gotta make sure it's taken seriously.

That would be kind of interesting actually, since, iirc, there's some early Western material (Stay Sonic I think?) that states Sonic was raised by an owl named Sophocles.

I don't even hate baby forms of characters, but er... uh... I really don't want to see that monstrosity as a baby lmao.

I also actually wouldn't mind the whole Sonic being raised by an owl thing, because at least that seems to focus the movie on the woodland critters that Sonic protects as opposed to leaving them as an afterthought.  In theory, anyway.

You know, now that you've mentioned the Sonic Bible, seeing that puts a lot of things in this movie into perspective. Father killed long ago (homeland destroyed being the substitute), living off of trash, raised from the wildlife... Even the Kintobor part is implied here. Makes it strange to see the similarities between the two, when the Sonic Bible has been out of commission for a decade and a half.

Again, why now?

Oh wow, really? Dr. Ivo Kintobor? Interesting.

This bodes well for comic inspiration

So this movie seems to be going back to the Sonic Bible/Sonic 1 vibe. Man vs. Nature and all that. I wonder if Badniks will be in the movie. Sonic being among the animals makes sense that he would have a personal stake in what Robotnik is doing

Had it been 3D and aimed at strictly gamers they probably would have stuck with eggman. Being as they want to appeal to both kids and adults and those not familar they probably went with robotnik to ease some people into the series before having this serious villian named eggman. He may not be fat is why to?

Scavenging in the movie vs eating trash in the Sonic Bible (Had to say that part)

Kids know Eggman as Eggman, because that's the only thing that Sonic media these days call him. He's been Eggman for nearly two decades in the west. Everything he makes has a general 'egg' theme to it. I, a fan in the teenage demographic, even grew up knowing him as Eggman (before I started checking out old western Sonic material, but even then still called him Eggman).

Changing that suddenly for the movie, while still having everything else call him Eggman creates this sudden confusion, especially for new fans coming in from the movie. They'd come out from a movie calling him Dr Robotnik over and over, to hop online and be slapped in the face with the revelation that he has always been Eggman since the start.

Both are basically the same when you think of how one would get fed.

So if given what my source said is true (And he does have direct connections)...  this movie could get, um, interesting.  He did say the PG-13 rating was the one that the full movie should get... so... Yeah.

Yes, hello.  I'd like to order a 7 foot 1 inch Baby Sonic plush.

Anything else your source said? Also this isn't the Reddit guy I'm assuming.

I could easily imagine a MOS type scene where a baby Sonic is sent to Earth to escape the Great War that has decimated Mobius.

Well some were.  It seems to me that if they intended to make a lot of money selling toys, they should have included more Sonic characters in this movie.  For all that the Bayformers films get a lot of crap, even they remembered that Transformers is about highly marketable toy robots.

The Redditor from last week also mentioned a Baby Sonic and said the film leans more on PG and is family friendly.
