Planet Freedom (惑星フリーダム Wakusei furīdamu?), also known as the planet of Freedom or Earth, is the main setting of Sonic the Hedgehog: The Movie. It is the home planet to Sonic, Tails, Dr. Robotnik and many others. The entire planet is unique in that it is split into two layers: the Land of the Sky and the Land of Darkness.


Planet Freedom is similar to the real-life Earth, though with a different appearance. Most of the planet is blue-colored due to its surface being covered in water. Many environments can be found on Planet Freedom, such as cities.

The populace of Planet Freedom ranges from anthropomorphic animals to human-like beings. The planet is also home to a number of strange human-animal hybrids. These include Sara, the President's daughter, who appears to have cat-like features.



In the past, ancient civilizations lived on what would be later named the Land of Darkness, though an incident forced them to move to the Land of the Sky. Much time later, Dr. Robotnik would establish his base on the Land of Darkness, where he would plot his plans to conquer Planet Freedom, all of which would be stopped by Sonic the Hedgehog and his friends.
