Sonic Movie Will Have “Edgy” Elements, Jim Carrey Teases

We’ve learned a little more about the 2019 Sonic the Hedgehog movie. Speaking to IMDB from the CinemaCon event recently, Jim Carrey–who plays the evil doctor Robotnik–said the film will have an edge to it while still overall appealing to families.

“We’re playing to families, so you can’t get too crazy,” Carrey said. “But I made sure that there are some winks and nods, and edgy things that are still acceptable to both age groups.”

Carrey also described Robotnik as a very smart scientist who is “pure, unbridled evil.”

The new Sonic movie is produced by Deadpool 1 director Tim Miller, and that fact prompted the question about the film potentially having an edgier side.

Actress Tika Sumpter plays a veterinarian who is “one of the ones who helps Sonic get through this dimension of a world and figure it out.”

James Marsden plays a police officer who meets Sonic through happenstance, and then they work together to challenge Robotnik. Marsden also spoke about the Sonic film’s tone.

“Of course the movie is going to be family friendly, but there is an edge to it; there is a sharpness to it. There is a wit to it,” he said.

You can watch the full interview here on IMDB.

Two trailers for the new Sonic movie premiered at CinemaCon; they haven’t been released publicly, but you can read a recap of what happened in them here.

Sonic opens in theatres on November 8. Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation, voices Sonic. The movie is directed by Jeff Fowler, who picked up an Oscar nomination for Gopher Broke.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
