Plot of the Sonic the Hedgehog

The film was set to be released on 2019 November 8th, but there were many interruptions regarding the first trailer. After some time the redesign was shown in a new trailer, and there it was highly praised.

Now let us check out who this Sonic is. Sonic is said to be an extra-terrestrial hedgehog, who is blue in colour and can run at very high speeds. Sonic has a guardian, but the guardian is an owl.  It is known as Longclaw. The owl helps him to hide out his powers, but Sonic does not listen to him. A tribe called echidnas tries to abduct Sonic. However, Longclaw gives Sonic a bag of rings which opens the doors to other planets. This opens the door to Earth while the owl fights with the tribe. Sonic lived lonely in the town of Green Hills of Montana. But he lived with a local sheriff called Tom Wachowski and his wife Madie who is a veterinarian. With the passage of time, Tom has being hired by the San Francisco Police department. So, he is taking measures to relocate there.

Sonic the Hedgehog review

Sonic was happy with them and he liked them a lot. Although he was happy, he liked his real friends. One night he felt the loneliness very terribly. He became very angry and started to run along the field. While running certain energy emitted out from his body. This was spread across the Pacific Northeast. Dr.Robotnix who is in the Department of Defence in the United States discovered this outage.

After some time Dr.Robotniks invaded Toms’ house. Anyhow Tom and sonic escaped. The search for Sonic became more obsessive for Dr. Robotniks. And it was big trouble for them. Somehow, Sonic did not like Tom leaving him. And he disapproves his decision. Meanwhile, Sonic was also injured by the drones of Dr.Robotnik after they came to San Francisco. Now here Maddie and Tom are reunited. Maddie helps a lot to recover. With the rings of Sonic, he is able to protect himself from the drones of robots.

Design of the Sonic the Hedgehog Movie

The visual effects were provided by the Moving Picture Company, Blur Studio, Marza Animation Planet, Trixter and Digital Domain. The team created a real version of the Sonic through the computer animation. They added new running sneakers, fur, two eyes and much more human-like. But after some time this was criticized. In there, sonic had different colored and larger eyes.

One of the disapprovals of modern video game movies is that they are not accompanied into existence by the vision of one person but are built by the committee. But, this redirects the way typical video games are made by a huge groups of designers, artists and writers, in an environment where creative control is rarely exercised by one figure. Blockbuster games, too, are in service to the idea that they must function as mechanical things.

Box office

On February 19, 2020, Sonic the Hedgehog has received $77.8 million in the United States and Canada, and $50.5 million in other regions, for a worldwide total of $128.3 million.

. After making $21 million on its first day (including $3 million from Thursday night previews), approximations were raised to $64 million. It also became the top the box office with a $58 million debut over the three-day weekend, and $70 million over the four, breaking Detective Pikachu‘s record for the opening weekend by a video game-based film. It was also the fourth President’s Day holiday weekend and Jim Carrey’s second-biggest opening weekend, behind Bruce Almighty (2003).

Scott Mendelson of Forbes surmised that the film’s accomplishment could in-part be attributed to reactions to the initial trailer, and the follow-up redesign creating significant promotional. Furthermore, the consequent release reschedules resulting from the delay worked in the film’s favor by having it released in a much less competitive film market during a dump month, where it became the major family film of 2020.


Its strongest international regions were Latin America and Europe, with its largest openings being $6.7 million in Mexico, $4.3 million in France, $3.3 million in Germany, and $3 million in Brazil. Worldwide, it made $101 million over the three-day weekend and $113 million over the four days. Sonic has yet to release in major markets such as Russia, China and Japan, due to the coronavirus outbreak.
