Sonic the Hedgehog

Sonic the Hedgehog is a 2020 adventure comedy film directed by Jeff Fowler (in his feature directorial debut) and written by Pat Casey and Josh Miller based on the video game franchise of the same name created by Sega and Sonic Team. It stars James Marsden, Ben Schwartz, Tika Sumpter, Natasha Rothwell, Adam Pally, Neal McDonough, and Jim Carrey. It is the first installment in a planned Sonic the Hedgehog film series. The film follows Sonic the Hedgehog (voiced by Schwartz), a hedgehog who can run supersonic speeds and teams up with local town sheriff Tom Wachowski (Marsden), to stop the sinister mad scientist Dr. Robotnik (Carrey), who seeks to use Sonic's superpowers to conquer the Earth.


On a distant planet, Sonic, an anthropomorphic blue hedgehog who can run at supersonic speed, is chased by a tribe of echidnas for his power. His guardian, Longclaw the Owl, gives him a bag of rings that open portals to other planets. She uses one to send him to Earth while she stays behind to hold off the echidnas.
