The original opening scene for Sonic the Hedgehog has been released to celebrate the film coming to home video.
When fans got their first look at the Sonic the Hedgehog film, there was notably a lot of backlash in regards to the character’s live-action design. The film would later face a delay to redesign Sonic. The result was not only a more accurate look, but the film ended up exceeding expectations both critically and financially.
Sonic the Hedgehog is now available on both digital and home media platforms. Included in the film’s special features is the original opening that sees an earlier encounter between “Crazy Carl” and Sonic. The original opening has now been released by CinemaBlend and you can watch it below.

Here is the official synopsis for the film:
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, the film 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.
