Sonic Live Action Movie Thread (Read OP for topic rules) "Trailer 2 on Page 482)

Recommended Posts

That sweepstakes page has the first instance of an actual billing block. It's cool that Marza Animation Planet is finally being heavily featured, since before the new trailer came out they were rarely even mentioned. In fact, most thought that Blur Studio completely took over.

Oh look, Takeshi Ito is mentioned. [Night of the Werehog producer]

Spoilering this because, well, these might be actual legit spoilers for the movie:

So, someone thought that it'd be a swell idea to look up the copyright records for the film [just checked for myself on the site, it's legit]. And well.. how do I put it.. they discovered a pretty big plot detail?

There's apparently gonna be a secondary villain in this, and I quote, he's "a lizard warrior who wants to steal Sonic's power and use it to conquer the universe".

Oh my lord, lol. I'm trying not to burst into laughter after reading that. God, this movie's getting wilder and wilder by the minute.

I didn't keep up too much with all the leaks and rumors about the plot before hand but...

 

Spoiler

 

that doesn't sound even remotely close to anything that has been suggested before.

Also, who knew we'd get the live action debut of the real Ultimate Life Form ahead of that Faker Shadow. lol

Have some serious doubts about that being true. The whole story so far has been about being a mundane Earth setting with Sonic being the only thing standing out.

The only thing that would make sense out of this would be

Spoiler

Chaos? I mean, Sonic said somebody from his world wanted to steal his powers. And they are in fact taking more inspiration from the games with the redesign and with a proper Green Hill setting, so it's possible?

If it's not that, I kind of preferred Owl mom. With that said, if they really added more games stuff, I can definitely expect to see at least

Spoiler

Tails and considering that Eggman has some Sonic fur at the end… Metal Sonic, just to set up a possible sequel.

The lizard warrior thing is so riddiculous that if I heard about it before the whole SEGA of America meeting and the redesign, I would've 100% believed such crap could actually be in the movie.

Granted I still 25% believe it could still be in it somewhere 😬

I've always thought it would be cool if the thing Sonic was running from on his world was Chaos. Maybe it is if that's true? He looks vaguely lizardy at times (well, in perfect form at least), especially to anyone unfamiliar with the franchise. A huuuuge stretch I know.

Would be nice though if they set up some cross of Sonic 3 and Adventure as a plot for the sequel, with Knuckles tricked by Robotnik as the villain before teaming up to take on chaos.

 

This is meaningless speculation though and I am 100% sure that tweeted plot is BS.

Lizard warrior? Makes me think of Sonic in the Fourth Dimension, lol.

Very surprised they aren't using Jun'ichi Kanemaru as the voice in the Japanese version of the movie given my understanding of how Japanese VAs tend to be tied to characters. I suppose that's to further emphasize how this is something separate from SEGA's own stuff and a very different Sonic.

Lizard Warrior? Good lord, it's Lyric all over again. Hoping they stay away from all that loony stuff for now. Just focus on Robotnik, Sonic and Cop Dude.

Now that's something I'd like to see. It'd give the latter a cool origin for the Movie version of him too!

Found this. 

https://www.reddit.com/r/SonicTheMovie/comments/e8ujcs/my_screening_is_over_d/

Here are some details.:

Spoiler

-Sonic doesn't know he's a Hedgehog (lol)
-More game music appears outside of Green Hill
-SA2 styled truck chase 

-Baby Sonic is still in (kinda)
-It's a HARD PG 
-The scene taking place to coming to Earth was damn sad and lowkey dark 
-Sonic eats his first chili dog in the movie
-Sonic is the main focus of the movie

C'mon, you know people will love this, after you-know-who from Mandalorian… here's everyone's new favorite toddler… Baby Sonic!

If they design him correctly… yeah, he's gonna be adorable.

So I guess they are keeping their "original"/movie exclusive elements for the origin story, good, so we have:

Spoiler

- Mysterious Birth of Sonic with speedy powers, Mama Owl raises him at first

- Lizard Warrior wants to steal his powers on his world

- Baby Sonic is sent to Earth 10 years ago after his mom's death

- Sonic grows up and lives lonely in the hero town "Green Hills", without gloves and with different shoes?

- Meets Tom who gives him his trademark shoes

- Sonic is shy until he gains confidence and becomes his game self

- Robotnik starts out like a Jim Carrey character but then goes nuts and becomes Eggman, gets his official look in the second act

- Government hire Robotnik but he does his own solo thing

- Sonic goes on a world tour to find his rings, that he uses as portals to get to various places

- Truck chase scene happens, yay!

- Sonic vs Robotnik and their growing rivalry, in a race to get the rings

- Sonic and Tom friendship etc...

- Tom seems actually an okay character, even though he's just a buddy to Sonic, Sonic is the protagonist in fact

- Robotnik, now fully Eggman, ends up on Sonic's world with some fur in his hands… sequel set-up.

I think I've summed up the movie's plot, now… one question, again: when does the Green Hill scene from the trailer happen? How does it fit anyway? Okay, the thing about "they wanted to steal my powers" fits here I guess.

Still, I'm glad they are having an origin and actual plot elements besides "wacky adventures on Earth with Sonic and Tom".

Just been to see the new JumanjI. Sonic trailer was shown which was a cut down version of the UK one. It got some laughs which was good as no one in the showing was below thirty. Strangely the line "why would you risk your life for this silly little alien?" has a new pronunciation for "silly little alien". Odd.

Nice to see it on the big screen.
