Netflix hasn’t revealed much about Sonic Prime and what audiences can expect from the animated series, but the press release announcing the show teases that it will explore “a strange new multiverse” and feature a story of redemption. According to the press release, “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” (via Pressparty).
Just don’t expect a gritty reimagining of the hero, though, as the series is aimed at kids aged six to 11. Still, it sounds like it’ll be a fun adventure for Sonic fans old and new. But hang on, if Sonic is traveling through the multiverse, could the show introduce alternate versions of the speedster like Shadow, Scourge the Hedgehog, and Metal Sonic? We’ll just have to wait and see in 2022.
