How to stream Sonic the Hedgehog movie

The mere idea of a Sonic the Hedgehog movie drew some polarizing reactions, which blew up into a near powder keg once the first trailer was revealed last year. But after a brief re-design, the Sega/Jim Carrey joint delighted both ’90s blast-processing fans and new gamers alike.

Sonic, a hedgehog endowed with super speed, escapes to earth once his home comes under attack from strange enemies. After bonding with a small-town sheriff, he must zip to San Francisco while dodging the megalomaniacal Dr. Ivo Robotnik, who is looking to harness the Blue Blur’s power for himself.
