The film stars Jim Carrey as Dr. Robotnik, James Marsden, Tika Sumpter, Ben Schwartz as the voice of Sonic, Adam Pally, Neal McDonough and Michael Hogan.

Sonic the Hedgehog Premiere Interviews

Sonic the Hedgehog is out in cinemas on Valentine’s Day, the 14th of February, 2020.


SONIC THE HEDGEHOG is a live-action adventure comedy based on the global blockbuster videogame franchise from Sega that centres on the infamously brash bright blue hedgehog. The film follows the (mis)adventures of Sonic as he navigates the complexities of life on Earth with his newfound – human – best friend Tom Wachowski (James Marsden). Sonic and Tom join forces to try and stop the villainous Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey) from capturing Sonic and using his immense powers for world domination. The film also stars Tika Sumpter and Ben Schwartz as the voice of Sonic.
