One of the most anticipated Sonic the Hedgehog-related new releases is the upcoming film. The live-action movie adaptation is racing into theaters next month, and Sonic Forces is ready to share the excitement with players.

The upcoming film brings the blue hedgehog into the real-world. According to the YouTube trailer from Paramount Pictures, “Based on the global blockbuster videogame franchise from Sega, Sonic the Hedgehog tells the story of the world’s speediest hedgehog as he embraces his new home on Earth. In this live-action adventure comedy, Sonic and his new best friend Tom (James Marsden) team up to defend the planet from the evil genius Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey) and his plans for world domination. The family-friendly film also stars Tika Sumpter and Ben Schwartz as the voice of Sonic.”
