Over the holiday, the Japanese trailer for the Sonic the Hedgehog movie was released overseas. Foreign trailers are cut by different people and tend to reveal things the American promo campaign didn’t plan to.
The Japanese trailer starts out with a scene we’ve seen before, depicting what is obviously Green Hill Zone from Sonic’s original game, and a blue blur speeding around, looping the loops, and collecting floating rings. Then he stops and….it’s Sonic, but not the version we all know. He’s a baby, and he has a flower for you!


We never find out who the flower is for (guess we’ll have to buy a ticket for the answer to that one) but it’s Baby Sonic and he’s adorable, and Sega knows it, because the trailer also includes a pitch for merch of him.

I’m adding Primo to Triad, turning it into QUAD. So now it’s Qubo, DiscFam, UniKids, and Primo. Should I add V-Me Kids to it for preschool content? It’s a sister channel to Primo, so it won’t affect it that much.
am I the only one posting the updates for Slimetime while nobody else seems to care????
