The saga of the Sonic the Hedgehog movie has been long and winding. There was curiosity and excitement when the movie was announced. Then there was abject horror at the first trailer that revealed an extremely different-looking Sonic. Then there was delight and relief when the second trailer delivered a much more familiar and lovable take on the character. And now today, Sega and Paramount deliver yet another surprise to the fanbase with a new Japanese Sonic movie trailer, which depicts something we never knew we needed in our lives: baby Sonic.
The first half of the trailer seems to just show off Sonic’s life before things went haywire, displaying the idyllic Green Hill Zone-like place seen in the previous big trailer. It is at the end of this section that we get a glimpse at precious baby Sonic, holding a sunflower with enough cuteness to completely annihilate “Baby Yoda” in a showdown. If you like adorable things, this trailer is just checkmate — you have absolutely no choice but to watch the Sonic movie now. Baby Sonic commands it.
Sonic the Hedgehog will release on Valentine’s Day — Feb. 14, 2020, and I can’t imagine you will have anything more romantic to do on that day than see this movie and admire baby Sonic.
