Sonic the Hedgehog[3] is a 2020 action adventure film adaptation based on Sega's Sonic the Hedgehog video game franchise. The film is directed by Jeff Fowler in his directorial debut and written by Patrick Casey and Josh Miller.[4][5] The film will feature Ben Schwartz as the film's titular hero, Sonic the Hedgehog, and Jim Carrey as Dr. Robotnik, alongside James Marsden and Tika Sumpter. The film features a small-town sheriff assisting Sonic as he attempts to escape the government.

The film, which is a CGI/live action hybrid film, is an American–Japanese joint venture between several parties. It is being co-produced and financed by Paramount Pictures, with Neal Moritz serving as producer as well through his Original Film banner. Tim Miller also serves as executive producer under his animation company Blur Studio, and Sega's Marza Animation Planet unit assists with the animation. It is the first entry in a planned film series.[6] The film premiered at the Paramount Theatre on 25 January 2020, and is scheduled to be theatrically released in the United States on 14 February 2020 by Paramount Pictures.[1]

Initially, Sony Pictures acquired the film rights to Sonic the Hedgehog from Sega in 2013, and officially gave the green-light at a private joint Sega/Sony Pictures press conference announcing the film on 10 June 2014.[5] Fowler was hired to direct in 2016. In October 2017, due to financing issues, Sony sold the film rights to Paramount, who retained the film's production staff.[7] Most of the cast had signed on for the project by August in 2018. Filming took place between July and October in 2018 in Vancouver, Ladysmith and elsewhere on Vancouver Island.

Sonic the Hedgehog was initially set to be released in November 2019; however, due to the negative reception of the movie's first trailer in April 2019, it was delayed to 14 February 2020 so that Paramount could redesign Sonic.[8][1]

Plot

Sonic, a blue anthropomorphic hedgehog, comes to Earth to escape malevolent forces that seek to harness his power of super-speed. After accidentally causing a massive power outage while hiding out in the town of Green Hills, Montana, Sonic is targeted by the government who then hire the tyrannical roboticist Dr. Robotnik to hunt him down. Meanwhile, an officer-turned-newly appointed Green Hills sheriff Tom Wachowski meets Sonic and decides to help him evade capture, collect his rings, and stop Robotnik from using Sonic's powers for world domination.[9][10]

Synopsis

In San Francisco, California, Sonic, a blue anthropomorphic hedgehog who can run at supersonic speeds, is being chased. The movie then pauses as Sonic begins to narrate what is currently happening and then proceeds to rewind the movie back to the beginning.

In his earlier years, Sonic came from an island with a checkerboard pattern boarding its walls, along with environmental features such as palm trees, vertical loops and cascading waterfalls. In addition, Sonic is raised by his caretaker, Longclaw, who encourages him to hide his powers, but Sonic does not listen. The two are then attacked by a tribe of echidnas; after one echidna strikes and injures Longclaw, she gives Sonic a bag of rings that he can use to travel to other locations. Longclaw uses a ring to send Sonic to Earth before she attempts to fend off the echidnas on her own, leaving Sonic heartbroken and alone.

Ten years later on Earth, Sonic lives in secret in the town of Green Hills, Montana, where he nicknames the locals after food items they are associated with. He idolizes the local sheriff, Tom Wachowski (who he nicknames "Donut Lord"), and his veterinarian wife Maddie (who he nicknames "Pretzel Lady"). Tom has recently been hired by the San Francisco Police Department and is preparing to move. Although he enjoys his life, Sonic longs for real friends. One night, while playing baseball by himself, and after realizing his loneliness, Sonic gets upset and starts running around the field. The energy Sonic emits creates an electromagnetic pulse that knocks out power across the Pacific Northwest.

News of what happened soon reaches the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia. Baffled, the United States Department of Defense enlists roboticist and scientific genius Ivo Robotnik to help discover the cause of the outage. Robotnik's high-tech robots discover Sonic, and he hides in the Wachowskis' shed to avoid them and the American troops searching for him, where he is discovered by Tom. Tom shoots Sonic with a tranquilizer, causing Sonic to drop his rings in a portal to San Francisco. After Sonic awakens, Tom reluctantly agrees to help Sonic recover the rings. However, Robotnik invades the house, but Sonic and Tom escape. Robotnik then comes across one of Sonic's quills that Tom found earlier. This declares Tom as a domestic terrorist due to his actions in protecting Sonic from Robotnik and the U.S. military.

Tom and Sonic narrowly evade Robotnik on a number of occasions and grow closer as they journey to San Francisco. Tom realizes that the one thing Sonic wants is to have a real friend. Meanwhile, Robotnik slowly loses his sanity as his search for Sonic becomes more obsessive. Sonic disapproves of Tom's decision to leave Green Hills, arguing that he is leaving his true friends. Sonic is injured in an explosion caused by one of Robotnik's robots shortly before the two arrive in San Francisco, where Tom is reunited with Maddie, who helps heal Sonic, and the three travel to the Transamerica Pyramid that Sonic dropped his rings on.

Robotnik and his robots confront them at the top of the building, where Sonic nicknames Robotnik "Eggman", after his egg shaped robots. Sonic uses the rings to teleport Tom and Maddie back to Green Hills before taking on Robotnik. Using the power of Sonic's quill, Robotnik is able to achieve supersonic speed, and he and Sonic fight across the world.

Robotnik and Sonic's fight eventually makes it back to Green Hills, where Robotnik manages to badly injure Sonic. As Robotnik prepares to deliver the final blow, Tom intervenes by using Sonic's rings and jumps onto Robotnik's hovercraft and attempts to fight him on hand to hand combat, but is knocked off. However, this doesn't stop Tom from protecting his friend. As he says this aloud, Sonic hears him and regains his strength and manages to reclaim the energy that Robotnik is using and, with help from Tom, uses a ring to send Robotnik to a planet made of mushrooms. With Robotnik defeated, Tom and Maddie decide to stay in Green Hills and let Sonic live in their house with them, making Sonic happy that he now has a family again. The U.S. government also erases all evidence of the incident, including records of Robotnik's existence. However, Robotnik survives his teleportation, and is stranded on the mushroom planet, going insane. He is still in possession of Sonic's quill, and begins plotting revenge, saying he'll be home by Christmas.

In the mid-credits scene, a two-tailed fox emerges from a ring portal, searching for Sonic.

Production

Development

Sony Pictures Entertainment acquired the rights to distribute a film based on Sonic the Hedgehog in 2013.[30] On 3 December 2013, Sony Pictures Digital Domain Names, Inc., a division of Sony Pictures Entertainment, filed a notice of registration for three inactive websites addressed as "SonicTheHedgehog-Movie.com", "SonicTheHedgehog-Movie.net" and "SonicTheHedgehogMovie.net". The registrations were reported by The Sonic Stadium on 7 December, but neither Sony Pictures nor Sega confirmed the existence of a proposed film project at the time.[31]

On 20 March 2014, a film adaptation was first hinted when The Tracking Board released a rumor about the film, stating that it would receive a "Dark Knight treatment" and posted a writer shortlist of proposed writers involved.[32] On 10 June 2014, the official Sonic website was updated, with a locked section listing "TV and Movies."[33] Later that same day, at a private Sega/Sony Pictures press conference, The Hollywood Reporter reported the confirmation of a live-action animated film based on Sonic the Hedgehog, which would be a joint venture between Sony Pictures and Marza Animation Planet, and that Sony had green-lit the project.[5][34] It would be produced by Neal H. Moritz by his Original Film banner alongside Takeshi Ito, Mie Onishi and Toru Nakahara, and written by Evan Susser and Van Robichaux.[34]

It was revealed on 21 June 2014 that Sonic the Hedgehog and its eventual successor films will be a separate continuity from the Sonic Boom continuity.[35] On 19 November 2014, Van Robichaux stated that the film production team is "aiming for [a] PG-13 [rating]".[36]

In February of 2016, Hajime Satomi, the CEO of Sega, went on record and stated that Sonic the Hedgehog was scheduled for a 2018 release.[37] On 31 October 2016, The Hollywood Reporter reported that Blur Studio's Tim Miller, who had left directing Deadpool 2 due to creative differences, and Jeff Fowler had been hired in 2016 to develop the film; Fowler would make his directorial debut, and both Miller and Fowler would executive produce. Patrick Casey, Josh Miller and Oren Uziel were writing the screenplay.[38][39]

It was announced on 2 October 2017 that Paramount Pictures had acquired the film rights to Sonic the Hedgehog from Sony, replacing the latter as distributor. Sony had temporally shut down production before the switch after placing it into turnaround.[7] The announcement came after Neal Moritz's Original Film banner signed a first-look production deal with Paramount the prior month, ending their previous deal with Sony, and several months after Sony's film financing partner LStar Capital ended its deal with Sony due to a string of box office failures from the studio.[40][41] Despite the change of studios, the production staff working on the film remained employed and moved to Paramount as well.[7]

On 22 February 2018, an official press release was put out confirming the film's move to Paramount and a release date of November 2019, a date that was first reported by The Hollywood Reporter two days prior.[42][43][44] Sega will have creative input into the project and will co-finance it with Paramount, who will release the film worldwide.[42]

Independent outlet Omega Underground reported on 4 March 2018 that the film's producers were circling Junkie XL to compose the film's musical score, reuniting him with Miller once again after doing the score for Deadpool. The site also reported that Paramount was aiming to begin filming at some point in July, backing up story co-writer Van Robichaux's speculation he tweeted a month prior.[45][46] On 29 May 2018, it was revealed that the film would have a budget of $90 million.[47]

On 12 June 2018, it was later stated that shots of the film would be filmed at Vancouver's Highway 19 during mid-September 2018, and that the movie's current title is "SONIC".[48] At Too Many Games in 2018, Johnny Gioeli stated that “Sega Has Nothing To Do With The Sonic Movie”.[49] Takashi Iizuka soon after corrected though, that he would be supervising the film.[50] Sonic the Hedgehog was originally slated for a 15 November 2018 release, but after Sony Pictures' turnaround, it was changed for a release on 8 November 2019 by Paramount Pictures.[51] In an exclusive IGN interview the first official poster for the film was released on 10 December 2018, revealing its official title as Sonic the Hedgehog.[3] Soon, the movie release date was changed again, this time to 14 February 2020, in order to accommodate for Sonic's redesign.[1]

Casting

On 29 May 2018, it was reported that Paul Rudd was in talks for a lead role as Tom, "a cop who befriends Sonic and will likely team up to defeat Dr. Eggman". Paramount later clarified that this was not the case, but that Rudd had been considered for the role at one point.[47] The following day, it was announced that James Marsden had been cast in an undisclosed role,[52] later revealed to be Tom Wachowski.[12] On 7 June 2018, it was announced that Tika Sumpter was cast to star opposite James Marsden in an undisclosed role,[53] later revealed to be Tom Wachowski's wife,[18] Dr. Maddie Wachowski.[19] Jim Carrey was cast to play the villain, Dr. Robotnik.[11] Ben Schwartz later joined the film's cast in August 2018 as the voice of Sonic the Hedgehog.[26] A few days later, Adam Pally and Neal McDonough were cast.[54] Debs Howard and Elfina Luk already joined the cast.[55]

Filming

On 1 April 2018, it was announced that filming was going to start on 30 July in Vancouver, instead of Atlanta as previously reported.[56]

Principal photography commenced on 24 July 2018 and ended in Vancouver, Ladysmith, and Vancouver Island on 16 October 2018. During filming, the picture was shot under the working title "Casino Night", a reference to the level in Sonic the Hedgehog 2.[9][57] A casting call was ordered to run on 18 Aug 2018, 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm PT and 19 Aug 2018, 10:00 am - 2:00 pm PT for residents of Ladysmith, BC. The roles were for the "townsfolk" from the fictional town, Green Hills.[58] Filming ended on 16 October 2018.[59] Despite this, more filming took place in downtown San Fransisco in late October.[60] Post-production of Sonic the Hedgehog and additional photography began and ended in New York in October, where Jim Carrey shot his scenes.[61][9]

Visual effects and design

SonicMovieTrailer31

Following the criticism of Sonic's initial design, director Jeff Fowler stated that Sonic would be redesigned, resulting in the film's release being postponed three months.[62]

The visual effects for Sonic the Hedgehog are provided by Industrial Light & Magic, Blur Studio, Digital Domain and the Moving Picture Company.[63]

Screenwriter Patrick Casey revealed that for the film, Sonic would have a design that was still him and yet a "little more realistic".[64] As promised, the production team created a new, more realistic version of Sonic, adding fur, new sneakers, two separate eyes,[3][65] and a more human-like physique.[66] They used Ted, the living teddy bear from the Ted films, as a reference to insert a CG character into a real-world setting.[3] In an interview with IGN, Tim Miller explained Sonic's redesign:

Quotation1 That was always Stage 1 of adapting it to what the real world is and what a real animal would be like, it would be weird and it would feel like he was running around nude if he was some sort of otter-like thing. It was always, for us, fur, and we never considered anything different. It’s part of what integrates him into the real world and makes him a real creature. <...> I don’t think SEGA was entirely happy with the eye decision, but these sorts of things you go, ‘It’s going to look weird if we don’t do this.’ But everything is a discussion, and that’s kind of the goal, which is to only change what’s necessary and stay true to the rest of it."[3] Quotation2

Sonic's humanoid appearance has been described as evoking an uncanny valley-type of revulsive response by viewers.[67] However, on 2 May 2019, it was announced by Jeff Fowler on Twitter that Sonic would receive a redesign following the criticism of the first trailer for the film that was released.[68][62] While the film's release date in November 2019 initially stayed unchanged, it caused concerns that a design overhaul of Sonic would cause the visual effects teams to be overworked.[69][70] However, Fowler would announce on Twitter on 24 May 2019 that the film had been moved to 14 February 2020.[1] It is estimated that the delay of the film and the redesign of Sonic put the film $5,000,000 or less over its original budget of $90,000,000, for a total of $95,000,000.[71]

Music

The film's soundtrack artwork.

On 13 February 2019, Junkie XL confirmed that he would compose the score for Sonic the Hedgehog.[72] Riff Raff, who reportedly had a role in the film, was to make an appearance on the soundtrack as well, but didn't.[73] On 23 January 2020, it was announced that a single titled "Speed Me Up" performed by Wiz Khalifa, Ty Dolla $ign, Lil Yachty and Sueco the Child would be featured in the film.[74] A day later, Junkie XL announced that the album of the score would release the same day as the film.[75] A limited vinyl edition of the film's soundtrack will be released by Enjoy the Ride Records.[76]

Several songs were featured in promotion of the film including "Gangsta's Paradise" by Coolio, "Supersonic" by J.J. Fad and "Blitzkrieg Bop" by Ramones. In the film itself, featured songs included "Friends" by Hyper Potions, "Don't Stop Me Now" by Queen, "White Lightning" by Tennessee River Crooks, "BOOM" by X Ambassadors, "Catch Me I’m Falling" by Kelly Finnigan, "Where Evil Grows" by The Poppy Family, and the theme of Green Hill Zone by Masato Nakamura.

The movie's design of Sonic was made into a playable character in Sonic Forces: Speed Battle and Sonic Dash.

At the Comic Con Experience in Brazil on 6 December 2018, test footage was screened for the public to see.[77] Later, on 10 December 2018, a teaser poster featuring the redesigned Sonic was released.[3] The design was unfavorably likened to those from the 2019 video game film adaptation, Pokémon: Detective Pikachu, which added fur and skin textures to the Pokémon characters.[66] The reveal of Sonic's redesign received mostly negative responses from critics and fans alike.[78][66] Former members of Sonic Team, who created the original Sonic the Hedgehog games, likewise expressed surprise at the design.[79]

Shortly after the first poster for the film was revealed, a second one was leaked online, prompting fans to criticize Sonic's design for its positioning of Sonic's legs and its lack of resemblance to the Sonic games. This would lead to the creation of an internet meme where users recreated the position.[80][81] The official Twitter account for the film soon after posted an image of Sonic behind a sign reading: "Can't a guy work out?"[82] More criticism from fans later emerged when images of Sonic's design leaked in March 2019. "Shocked" by the design, former Sonic Team president and Sonic co-creator Yuji Naka felt the ratio of Sonic's head and abdomen was imbalanced.[83]

The first trailer for Sonic the Hedgehog was shown on 4 April 2019 at CinemaCon in Las Vegas.[84] It was subsequently released online on 30 April. What it got was near-unanimous criticism,[85][86][87] with Gita Jackson of Kotaku describing it as "horrific" and "a blight upon this weary earth".[85] Sonic's design was likewise criticized, his humanoid appearance in particular,[85][87] and some writers found the use of Coolio's "Gangsta's Paradise" inappropriate.[88][89] Conversely, CNET's Sean Keane praised the humor and references to past Sonic games.[90] Two days after its release, the trailer had been viewed more than 20 million times on YouTube.[91] Paramount deleted the original trailer from its YouTube channel around the same time when the new trailer was released.

A second trailer revealing the redesigned Sonic was released on 12 November 2019.[92] The trailer received far more positive responses, with many praising Sonic's new design. The tone and the humor also received positive reviews.[93] Naka said he felt the new design was "much more Sonic-like".[94] Animator Max Schneider stated that the redesign took around five months and was achieved without stressful overtime.[95] The second trailer received the highest like-to-dislike ratio of any trailer on Google in the last three years.[96]

On 11 December 2019, Sega of America announced the line of merchandise that would be releasing for the film.[97] Toys were to be made by Jakks Pacific and Build-A-Bear Workshop, and Toy Factory and Sega Amusements would make novelty items for amusement parks and attractions. Children's books were to be published by Penguin Publishing. Apparel and home decor would be made by Bioworld, Bentex, TVM Fashion Lab, Cooneen and Franco Manufacturing. A statue will be made by Diamond Select Toys, and Sega Shop will release various items. In-theater promotions like drink toppers and popcorn buckets would be offered by Snapco and Ping Solutions.

More promotions included a tie-in with fast food restaurant Jack in the Box for Tiny Tacos, and an event in Sonic Forces: Speed Battle and Sonic Dash which added a new track based on a location from the film and unlockable playable teen and baby versions of Sonic.[98][99][100] Other partners were added to the film's website, which included Puma, Valpak, Books-A-Million and Bimbo.

The accompanying artwork for the 2020 reschedule.

Originally, Sonic the Hedgehog was scheduled for a 2018 release by Columbia Pictures.[37] However, after the turnaround, Paramount Pictures rescheduled it to 15 November, 2019.[43] Eventually though, it was changed again for release in the United States on 8 November, 2019.[51] Later, in May 2019, director Jeff Fowler announced that the film would be delayed (again) to 14 February 2020, in order to "make Sonic just right" following the claims to make changes to Sonic's design in the film.[1][101]

The movie's world premiere took place at the Paramount Theatre in Los Angeles on 25 January 2020.

Reception

Critical reception

Upon release, the film received mixed-to-positive reviews. On Rotten Tomatoes, the film holds an approval rating of 63% based on 136 reviews, with an average rating of 5.82/10. The website's critics consensus reads: "Fittingly fleet and frequently fun, Sonic the Hedgehog is a video game-inspired adventure the whole family can enjoy — and a fine excuse for Jim Carrey to tap into the manic energy that launched his career."[102] On Metacritic, the film has a weighted average score of 47 out of 100, based on 33 critics, indicating "mixed or average reviews".[103] Audiences polled by CinemaScore gave the film an average grade of "A–" on an A+ to F scale, and PostTrak reported it received an average 4 out of 5 stars, with 70% of people saying they would definitely recommend it.[104]

IGN gave the film a 7/10, praising the performances and the nostalgia, stating, "While this family-friendly action-comedy suffers from a simplistic story and leans too heavily on tired visual cliches, Sonic the Hedgehog is nevertheless boosted by solid performances from Ben Schwartz as Sonic and Jim Carrey as Dr. Robotnik. Their ongoing cat-and-mouse game is entertaining, and passionate fans of the Sega franchise should appreciate all the nods to Sonic's history."[105] Dami Lee of The Verge gave the film a positive review, praising the nostalgic elements seen in the film, stating, "The movie shines when it remembers it's based on a video game, and there's some genuinely fun stuff — like when Sonic uses his time-stopping powers or Robotnik's elaborate 'evil-plotting' montage that makes you wonder why more movies don's feature bad guys with choreographed dance sequences. Carrey plays up Robotnik as the cartoon villain he is, and it’s a true delight to watch him in his element."[106] Gene Park of The Washington Post, gave the film a positive review, saying: "The “Sonic the Hedgehog” film is the furthest thing from "Cats", despite the early comparisons. Wary fans expecting the usual easy target to mock will instead find something to fervently celebrate for years."[107] Inverse called it a "road trip superhero movie" and "the best superhero movie of 2020" so far.[108] Ben Kenigsberg of The The New York Times, gave the film a negative review and wrote: "Sonic now resembles a cartoon hedgehog instead of a spray-painted marmot. But if anything was done to de-genericize the script, it hasn’t helped. Not that the Sega games — in which the fleet-footed hero zips around doing flips and collecting gold coins (which here encircle the Paramount mountain) — gave the director, Jeff Fowler, much to work with."[109] John DeFore of The Hollywood Reporter, gave the film a positive review, saying: "Flesh-and-blood actors help keep this game-derived kids' flick afloat."[110]

In a more negative review, Variety's Owen Gleiberman criticized the commercialization of the film, stating, "A review like one should probably come with a disclaimer: For all the borderline tedium I felt at Sonic the Hedgehog, I do realize that this is a picture made for 8-year-olds. And they'll probably like it just fine. Yet I would also call the overly kiddified tone of the movie a mistake."[111] Writing for The Guardian, Steve Rose gave the film a 2 out of 5, criticizing the lackluster visual effects, stating: "There are action scenes and effects flourishes, but even these feel borrowed from other movies. Sonic'a ability to freeze time then dart about rearranging things before starting it again, for example, is clearly indebted to QuickSilver's antics in the X-Men movies. And what messages this exercise can be bothered to deliver are trite and familiar: the true meaning of friendship, be happy with what you’ve got, machines bad, people (and space hedgehogs) good."[112] Simon Abrams of Rogerebert.com, gave the film a 1 out of 4 stars and said: "Sonic the Hedgehog” is only as successful as the amount of time you want to spend watching its animated protagonist go on instantly forgettable adventures, and boy, is that unfortunate."[113] Amon Warrman of Empire Magazine, gave the film a 2 out of 5 stars, saying "An on-form Jim Carrey can’t stop Sonic’s live-action debut from feeling like a missed opportunity. If the teased sequels do materialise, here’s hoping the storytelling levels up."[114] [115]

Box office

As of February 17, 2020, Sonic the Hedgehog has grossed $70 million in the United States and Canada, and $43 million in other territories, for a worldwide total of $113 million.[116]

In the United States and Canada, the film was initially projected to gross $40–50 million from 4,130 theaters in its four-day President's Day opening weekend.[117][118] After making $21 million on its first day (including $3 million from Thursday night previews), estimates were raised to $64 million.[119] It went on to top the box office with a $58 million debut over the three-day weekend and $70 million over the four days, breaking Detective Pikachu's record for biggest opening weekend by a video game-based film.[120]

In other markets, the film released in 40 countries during its three-day opening weekend, topping the international box office with $43 million. Its strongest international regions were Latin America and Europe, with its largest openings being $6.7 million in Mexico, $6.2 million in the UK, $4.3 million in France, $3.3 million in Germany, and $3 million in Brazil, in like-for-like markets (excluding previews).

However, the film has yet to release in major markets such as Russia, Japan and China (due to the coronavirus outbreak).[121]

Future

Before the film's release, Jim Carrey said in an interview, "I wouldn't mind going to do another Sonic the Hedgehog movie because it was so much fun, first of all, and a real challenge to try to convince people that I have a triple-digit IQ... There is so much room, you know, Robotnik has not reached his apotheosis."[122]

Trivia

  • Yuji Naka was originally supposed to appear in the film as an extra but was forgotten during production.[123]
  • Van Robichaux originally wrote a scene for the film where Dr. Robotnik had a coffee maker named Mean Bean Machine after the game Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine but it was cut from the final film.[124]
  • Chizzy Stephens originally wrote a song called "Gotta Go Fast" being a remix of Green Hill Zone and named after the theme song of the same name from Sonic X. The song was finished but never got used in the movie.[125][126]
    • However, a piano version of Green Hill Zone was played after Robotink's defeat.
  • In the first official trailer for the film, the line "Every Hero has a Genesis" is a nod to the Sega Genesis, the debut console for the original Sonic the Hedgehog video game.
  • Near the beginning of the film, Sonic presents a sunflower to Longclaw that resembles the sunflowers in Green Hill Zone from the original Sonic the Hedgehog.
      • Additionally, in a scene where Tom is talking on the phone with Wade, there is a window decal that looks similar to the sunflower Sonic gave to Longclaw.
  • At one point during the film, a man named "Crazy Carl" shows Tom a drawing which resembles the infamous "Sanic" internet meme.
  • Sonic can be seen playing Table Tennis with himself on a road sign that reads "Hill Top Rd". This was named after Hill Top Zone, a Zone that debuted in Sonic the Hedgehog 2.
  • Sonic can be seen wearing a headband with a title icon design that is identical to the original one that debuted on the splash screen for the original Sonic the Hedgehog.
  • Sonic's map of different planets contain several references:
  • During the film, Crazy Carl, a person who had claimed to have seen glimpses of Sonic running around in the forest referred to him as the "Blue Devil", which is also the name of Metal Sonic's vehicle in Sonic Drift 2.
  • When Sonic is in his man cave or towards the end where the man cave has been moved to the attic, the wheels on Sonic's race car bed are based on the Modern Spring design from the main video game series.
