A character so culturally ubiquitous, I’m familiar with it, even though I never played the game, from my kids’ generation, now made into a CGI movie I don’t care a bit about. But the Pitch Meeting’s funny.
Sonic The Hedgehog Pitch Meeting
Screen Rant – Feb 15, 2020 – 5:30
Sonic the Hedgehog is one of the most famous video game characters of all time, so it definitely makes sense that Hollywood wanted to cash in on this little blue guy by bringing him to the big screen. Voiced by Ben Schwartz, Sonic has now come to planet Earth and has to go up against the evil Doctor Robotnik, played by Jim Carrey.
The movie definitely raises a lot of questions. Like why is there suddenly an owl here? Why does Sonic run into someone’s garage to use his portal ring? Why doesn’t he run to San Francisco to retrieve it, instead taking a slow-paced road trip when time is of the essence? Why does this little blue alien floss so often? Why did they want to give him so many teeth?
To answer all these questions and more, step inside the pitch meeting that led to Sonic The Hedgehog! It’ll be super easy, barely an inconvenience.
Here’s the CGI difference being discussed:
