Though just under a minute long, the latest teaser for “Sonic Prime” has a lot to offer. In addition to vibrant, colorful environments, we get a good look at the likes of Shadow the Hedgehog, Dr. Eggman, and Big the Cat. For the most part, the overall aesthetic doesn’t look too far off from the source material to boot. The comment section on the YouTube post from SegAmerica is, surprisingly, loaded with positive remarks about the trailer. The vast majority of commenters especially adore the fluid, expressive animation that they feel will make the show a treat to watch.
Additionally, a few comments gave praise to Deven Mack for his take on Sonic the Hedgehog. This is his first time portraying the character, and as he expressed in a May 2022 video on his Twitter page, he’s more than ready to do it justice. “I understand what these characters mean to a whole lot of people, and it’s a lot to live up to,” he said, highlighting his deep-rooted love of Sonic animated shows and his excitement to live vicariously through him. Mack also promises action and adventure throughout the series that will pay homage to Sonic and his pals’ pop culture legacies.
As the teaser reveals, “Sonic Prime” will debut on Netflix in the winter of 2022.
