Sonic Prime Gets Release Date And New Trailer

sonic prime

It’s almost time for Prime…Sonic Prime. The Blue Blur’s latest television series (his sixth, if you’re counting) sees him up against — surprise — Dr. Eggman, who has something called the Paradox Prism in his clutches. It’s no Chaos Emerald, but it suits whatever plan he has at that moment.

Eggman only gets to touch it for a few moments, however, before Sonic and his crew arrive to stop him. The mad doctor summons his Badniks and a brawl ensues, but the Paradox Prism is shattered in the melee, letting loose its powers and sending Sonic careening through the multiverse.

According to Netflix, “the 24-episode animated adventure for kids, families, and long-time fans draws upon the keystones of the brand and features the “Blue Blur” of video game fame in a high-octane adventure where the fate of a strange new multiverse rests in his gloved hands. Sonic’s adventure is about more than a race to save the universe, it’s a journey of self-discovery and redemption.” What has Sonic done that needs redeeming?

Perhaps it’s the worlds he visits that need redemption. The one shown here needs a lot of help — Eggman has completely taken it over, with his robot army keeping a fascist grip on the populace. Sonic’s friends are underground rebel fighters attempting to topple him. Tails has mechanical spider-legs and Any is half cyborg. They’re almost like…freedom fighters. Wait, does this sound familiar to you?

It’s always puzzling to us when companies switch up their voice cast for no reason. Roger Craig Smith is not Sonic in this cartoon and we have no idea why. Instead, someone named Deven Christian Mack is voicing him, and the rest of the cast is different too: Ashleigh Ball is Tails and Brian Drummond is Eggman, among others. They don’t SOUND different so…what’s the point? Are they cheaper?

With this trailer, Netflix reveals when Sonic Prime will be watchable: the show hits the service December 15. 24 episodes have been produced, but it’s still unclear if they will appear all at once or in two halves.
