According to reports coming out of São Paulo, their fifth Annual comic con held a big surprise for people who attended Paramount Pictures’ presentation.
The First Sonic Teaser Trailer was shown!
The trailer is a teaser trailer in every sense of the word, it gives away absolutely nothing regarding the plot. But here are the details we could get.
Teaser begins with a close up of Sonic’s face.
He is textured and realistic, similar to Detective Pikachu.
The character then runs and breaks the sound barrier.
Full translation is as follows.
Sonic’s preview made Cinemark’s audience agitated. The teaser began with a close close on the face of the hedgehog, which is at the same time as caricature, textured and realistic. Something in Detective Pikachu’s suit. After this we see a plane of the character running and breaking the sound barrier.

More images are emerging from the set of the Sonic the Hedgehog movie, currently filming in British Columbia:

The image, purportedly from Pitt Lake near Vancouver, shows a town sign for the fictional location of “Green Hills” (which although is cut off in the image is also written on the side of the police cruiser in the background). Note the extra “s”, in the location, likely a bit of creative license on the writer’s part rather than a nod to the lesser-known zone of the same name from the Master System version of Sonic 2.
The sign also comes with the town motto of “The little town with a big heart”, along with the town’s population and elevation above sea level (although they missed a trick with the population – should have been 1991, not 1981!).
If this image is anything to go by, it is probably a good indicator we will see more nods and references to the game throughout the movie.
Stay tuned to TSS for more Sonic the Hedgehog movie news as it comes!
