Video game movies have a very bad reputation, and yet, it’s one that is earned. There have been many attempts to make a live-action version of various high-profile video games, and just about all of them have sucked. Now, it’s Sonic the Hedgehog’s turns to go into the limelight, and leaks abound are out for this title. Including a new one that leaks the potential origin for this Sonic the Hedgehog, and it’s weird for sure.
Sonic escapes his birth planet as a baby (rings are how Sonic got to Earth. He can throw one and imagine a place and it will take him there), is found by an owl and grows up on Earth. Ends up alone after some time and grows up staying hidden. He pretty much scavenges and lives in the shadows. He is known as “the blue devil” to the locals and thought of as an urban legend until he is found out about. Loneliness gets to him which leads to the government bringing in Robotnik to find the energy disturbance caused by Sonic. (Sonic makes an electrically charged run when he focuses or gets extremely emotional. His charged run is why he gets detected and how doc comes into the film.) Hijinks ensue and a good story is told as Tom the cop and Sonic become besties.
So…yeah, that’s a LONG way away from the true story of Sonic The Hedgehog. But it gets better, or worse, hear what they have to say about Eggman:
Robotnik (who is never referred to as Eggman) is just a psycho doc that works for the government initially. He has drones that can track and shoot, as well as a large tank. He’s super obnoxiously smart and makes tons of comments in the film about how superior his brain is. Has the typical long coat and all dark evil scientist look, short mustache as well initially. He gradually gets crazier and more obsessed with Sonic as the film goes, and doesn’t rock the signature look until tail end of movie, when he is defeated and ends up on a foreign planet that Sonic was supposed to escape to in the event of being found on earth. He is now hefty and rocking the full blown ‘stache.
It also notes that no other Sonic characters will be in the movie. Whether this leak is true or not remains to be scene.
