Sonic Prime Teaser Features the Hedgehog Fighting Shadow
The short teaser does not reveal much about the storyline but does feature a glimpse of Sonic fighting Shadow, one of his arch rivals. The villainous Eggman and Big the Cat also make appearances in the visual.
The text in the teaser says, “He’ll shatter your world,” in reference to the show’s multiverse aspect. The series is scheduled to premiere on Netflix in Winter this year; however, an exact date has not been announced.
The first season of Sonic Prime will feature 24 episodes, which will showcase the blue blur on a journey of self-discovery and redemption. Watch the action-packed teaser below.
“The 24-episode animated adventure for kids, families, and long-time fans draws upon the keystones of the brand and features the “Blue Blur” of video game fame in a high-octane adventure where the fate of a strange new multiverse rests in his gloved hands. Sonic’s adventure is about more than a race to save the universe, it’s a journey of self-discovery and redemption,” says the official description of the show.
The Show was Announced Last Year
Sonic Prime was confirmed in February 2021, with makers announcing that the show “aims to captivate the imaginations of audiences ages six to 11, as well as legacy Sonic fans of all ages, and will match the scale and scope of the epic adventures synonymous with the Sonic franchise.”
Talking about the show, Dominique Bazay, director of original animation at Netflix, said, “Sonic is a beloved character and holds a special place in everyone’s heart including my own. I spent many hours with the blue blur as a kid and it’s a privilege to be able to bring this character everyone knows and loves on a brand new adventure with Netflix — one that a generation of loyal fans and brand new fans around the world can enjoy.”
Earlier than that, in 2020, Netflix teased a show based on Sonic with a tweet but deleted the statement immediately. “Rings? Check. Sneakers? Check. Speed? SONIC. SEGA’s legendary video game icon Sonic the Hedgehog races onto Netflix in a new 3D animated series from @SEGA, @WildBrainHQ and @ManOfActionEnt premiering in 2022,” read the deleted tweet.
Another Live-Action Sonic Film is also in the works
Sonic Prime is not the only project based on the game character coming your way. The next film in the live-action Sonic the Hedgehog film franchise is also currently under development and will be released on December 20, 2024. A spin-off series starring Knuckles the Echidna has also been announced, which will be coming to Paramount+ in 2023.
Sonic Prime will feature Deven Mack as the voice of the titular character. The series has been co-produced by Sega, Netflix Animation, WildBrain, and Man of Action Entertainment.
