Sonic The Hedgehog director Jeff Fowler has revealed a brand new behind-the-scenes look at Jim Carrey’s Dr. Robotnik.
The live-action Sonic The Hedgehog movie is set to hit theaters next month after a considerable delay caused by Paramount’s decision to redesign the titular character. Now that Sonic The Hedgehog is less than a month from racing into our hearts, director Jeff Fowler has shared a brand new behind-the-scenes look at Jim Carrey’s take on the iconic Sonic villain Dr. Robotnik.
To celebrate Jim Carrey’s birthday, Sonic The Hedgehog director Jeff Fowler took to Twitter to share a photo of himself with the star dressed as Dr. Robotnik. In the image, we see Jim Carrey rocking the classic goggles that Dr. Robotnik is known to wear, alongside the typical red suit. You can check out the photo from the Sonic The Hedgehog set below.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY to one of the most talented, kind, generous, thoughtful, intelligent, earnest, and oh yes FUNNIEST people ever to walk this earth. It is an amazing HONOR to know you and THANK YOU for everything you've done for this movie @JimCarrey #SonicMovie #GOAT pic.twitter.com/GOLTpkrD5f

In the image, we also get a neat look at the rig that’s supposedly Dr. Robotnik’s vehicle, which Jim Carrey will pilot to destroy Sonic. Jim Carrey’s role in Sonic The Hedgehog will be the comedian’s first theatrical appearance in over four years. One of the most respected comedians of the ’90s, Jim Carrey captured the hearts of millions with films like Dumb and Dumber and The Mask. Now, Jim Carrey is set to make a big splash once again in Sonic The Hedgehog, where he’ll hopefully find a new audience with Sonic’s younger fan base.

Here is the official synopsis for the Sonic the Hedgehog:
SONIC THE HEDGEHOG is a live-action adventure comedy based on the global blockbuster video game franchise from Sega that centres on the infamously brash bright blue hedgehog. The film follows the (mis)adventures of Sonic as he navigates the complexities of life on Earth with his newfound – human – best friend Tom Wachowski (James Marsden). Sonic and Tom join forces to try and stop the villainous Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey) from capturing Sonic and using his immense powers for world domination.
Directed by Jeff Fowler from a script written by Patrick Casey, Josh Miller, and Oren Uziel, Sonic the Hedgehog features the voice talent of Ben Schwartz as the titular character and stars James Marsden as sheriff Tom Wachowski, Jim Carrey as Dr. Ivo Robotnik, Neal McDonough as US Army Major Bennington, Tika Sumpter as Mrs. Wachowski, Lee Majdoub as Stone, and Frank C. Turner as Crazy Carl. Adam Pally, Natasha Rothwell, Debs Howard, and Elfina Luk also star in undisclosed roles.
Sonic the Hedgehog will be released in theaters on February 14, 2020.
