Sonic the Hedgehog

Visible crew/equipment: When Tom and Sonic pull over and the mini drone explodes, knocking Sonic unconscious, the camera pans away and you can see emergency vehicles blocking the road on the right of the screen, presumably closing down the road for filming. (00:59:55)

Continuity mistake: Robotnik's shaving his head, leaving smudges on it. A shot later his head's suddenly clean. (01:29:10)


Continuity mistake: Maybe it's the lighting on the Mushroom World but Dr Robotnik's mustache looks red when prior to that it was brown.

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: This may have been intentional. In the final scene on the Mushroom Planet, Robotnik looks closer to his video game counterpart; he shaves his head and his mustache is much longer.

This is probably done to make way for Eggman in the second movie (which is in talks).

Trivia: The film's first trailer - in particular the design chosen for Sonic - was so poorly received, that the director confirmed on Twitter two days later that the studio was committed to changing the design to quell the backlash.


Trivia: On the rooftop in San Francisco, at one point Sonic starts tapping his foot and looks at his wrist. This is a reference to the "idle animations" from the first few "Sonic" games for the Sega Genesis, in which he does something similar if the player doesn't push any buttons for a while.


Trivia: The town in the movie is called "Green Hills." This is a reference to "Green Hill Zone," which was the name of the first level in the very first "Sonic" video-game. Additionally, a piano rendition of the "Green Hill Zone" music is played towards the end of the film.

More trivia for Sonic the Hedgehog

Sonic the Hedgehog: Look at this, I took nine million steps today.

Dr. Ivo Robotnik: I was spitting out formulas, when you were spitting up formulas.
Tom Wachowski: I was breastfed, actually.
Dr. Ivo Robotnik: Nice, rub that in my orphan face.

Question: This is a two part question: firstly if Crazy Carl was onto Sonic why didn't he find any of Sonic's quills when Tom found one without even looking for one? Secondly: what happened to the ring that Sonic threw and bounced of the robot, did he get it back, or will it play a part in getting Robotnick back in the possible sequel?

Darth Crucible

Answer: First, it seems Sonic doesn't shed his quills that easily. Tom found one just by sheer luck. Second, yes that ring is likely going to play a part in the sequel.

Question: How can Sonic's quill help Robotnik get back to Earth?


Answer: Robotnik is a genius inventor and the quill is an incredible source of energy, so presumably he will use it to power whatever invention he can create that will help him escape the Mushroom Planet and return to Earth.

Thank you.
