Movie Sonic’s Original Design Is a Character in Disney’s Chip & Dale: Rescue Rangers Movie

It’s a weird time to be a person who engages in…any sort of media. From reboots, to unprecedented crossovers, to entire works of media built around meta commentary, the modern media landscape is unlike anything humankind has experienced before.

That of course, means that Movie Sonic’s original design popping up in a Disney movie reboot of Chip & Dale: Rescue Rangers that’s also got meta comedy and also acts as a spiritual successor to Roger Rabbit is a thing that just happened that’s surprising, but not that surprising. “Ugly Sonic,” as he is apparently called, has been confirmed by multiple reviews of Rescue Rangers. The character, which will be voiced by Tim Robinson, will be more than a background cameo, and has at least some dialogue in the movie. According to one reviewer, Ugly Sonic works the convention circuit, and says to Dale “The internet saw my human teeth and burned the place down.” Well…he isn’t wrong!

The movie will hit Disney+ later this week on May 20.

And yes, this means Sonic has four separate voice actors right now.

    1. Dunno if it will happen, especially if Disney got permission from Paramount and SEGA to use it, like with Hasbro and MLP.

  1. Everytime I hear about this movie I’m more and more convinced it was supposed to be uploaded to Newgrounds but somehow made it to the Disney servers instead.

  2. Now I really have to see the movie, not just for RR (though there is that too, its been ages since I watched anything RR), I wanna see the cameo just for the laughs.

  3. This isn’t the first time Sonic appeared on a Disney production. The modern video game design appeared on “Wreck-It Ralph”.
