Netflix Unveils Trailer for Upcoming Multiverse-Saga Sonic Prime

Sonic the Hedgehog has entered the multiverse.

Netflix recently released a trailer for Sonic Prime, an upcoming animated children series set to debut on Dec. 15. WildBrain is the studio behind the series while Man of Action Entertainment, creators of Ben10, is showrunning and executive producing.

The trailer highlights an interaction between Sonic and Dr. Eggman. Sonic’s friends Tails, Knuckles, Amy Rose, and Rouge the Bat also show up to aide the speedster. The altercation leads to Sonic getting propelled into the multiverse, or Shatterverse in this series.

Sonic arrives in a post-apocalyptic world where Eggman and his council rule. To save the day, Sonic teams up with alternate versions of his friends from other universes.

Netflix initially announced the show in early 2021 with the first footage debuting in the beginning part of 2022. The streaming company continued to release trailers since that time.

Deven Christian Mack will voice Sonic in this series. Others in the cast includes Ashleigh Ball as Tails; Adam Nurada as Knuckles; Brian Drummond as Dr. Eggman; Shannon Chan-Kent as Amy Rose; and Kazumi Evans as Rouge.

This 24-episode series is set to accompany a slew of Netflix animation projects that include a Kung-Fu Panda series, Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous, Boss Baby, Daniel Spellbound, and My Dad the Bounty Hunter.

This also comes on the heels of a reveal for Dragon Age: Absolution complete with release date, voice cast, and other details.

Sonic the Hedgehog has had a bit of a renaissance in recent years as the Blue Blur also found success in a pair of live-action movies over the past few years. 

Though not direct competitors, Sonic Prime does debut several months ahead of Illumination’s The Super Mario Bros. Movie.

The trailer was a hefty reveal as it clocked in at almost two and a half minutes. This absolutely gave fans something to be excited about ahead of release. 

Furthermore, the family-friendly nature of this show will likely be a great introduction into the franchise for younger fans. This might be part of SEGA’s strategy as Sonic Frontiers just released on Nov. 8.
