Sonic the hedgehog fully charges his energies for a new adventure on the big screen. The Game Awards ceremony welcomes the release of the first trailer for Sonic: The Movie 2.
That of which movies that adapt video games They never live up to expectations is a stigma that the film industry has endured for decades, but exceptions do come out from time to time.
At the beginning of 2020 came Sonic: The movie, an adaptation that could well be about to swell the list of fiascos, but that knew how to rectify to the point of being worth a sequel.
And we have to talk about that sequel today, because the ceremony of The Game Awards has been the setting chosen to launch the first trailer for Sonic: The Movie 2.
Miles “Tails” Prower (Colleen O’Shaughnessey) and Knuckles (Idris Elba) will join Sonic (Ben Schwartz) in this sequel to the 2020 film that will pick up the events where we left them, with the doctor Ivo “Eggman” Robotnik (Jim Carrey) and his new look ready to return from the mushroom planet.
Much of the success of Sonic: The Movie is due to the rapid rectification that Paramount made after receiving negative feedback on the original hedgehog design.
Fans strongly criticized the stylized look given to the popular character from SEGA, prompting the studio to return to the design and animation room.
It was a millionaire job that made the film more expensive, but the response made it worth it, with Sonic: The Movie raising $ 319.7 million Worldwide.
In fact, the film could have done better in terms of revenue, but it coincided with the moment when the first wave of the coronavirus pandemic raged in Europe and led to the closure of cinemas.
If not, it was quite possible that the Paramount film would have come close or equaled Detective Pikachu, which a year earlier grossed $ 433.5 million.
What do you think of the first trailer for Sonic: The Movie 2? Are you looking forward to running around with SEGA’s blue hedgehog again?
