Last month, we headed we screened Sonic The Hedgehog and attended the press conference in Beverly Hills. We were thrilled to meet the sensational cast, and talk about the new film!
Thank you Paramount Pictures for inviting us to the Sonic The Hedgehog screening and press conference. All opinions are my own.
Based on the global blockbuster video game franchise from Sega, SONIC THE HEDGEHOG tells the story of the world’s speediest hedgehog as he embraces his new home on Earth. In this live-action adventure comedy, Sonic and his new best friend Tom (James Marsden) team up to defend the planet from the evil genius Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey) and his plans for world domination. The family-friendly film also stars Tika Sumpter and Ben Schwartz as the voice of Sonic.
This cast is like no other, with their large grins and eccentric voices, their eyes glazed over with excitement as they spoke about their characters. They created content for children, with the intention of sending life long lessons, and the importance of kindness and friendship.
My daughter Clarissa choked up when she met her favorite actor, Jim Carrey.
They spoke from the heart, and from a place of sincerity, as improv was frequently used by these insanely talented actors. The children in the crowd gravitated towards the actors, sparkles in their eyes, often asking questions as if their favorite characters were real, sitting in front of them.
Can’t help but to fall in love with this little blue guy after watching this film. It was action packed and took us on a wild supersonic adventure. When my 12 year old son and I are equally sharing belly laughs while watching a film, it’s a winner… ?
Ben said, “In my performance, whenever he is talking or anything like that I try to do it that when you hear it you feel like the energy, of that young kid trying to do the things he’s dreamed to do.”
This adorable film hit our hearts at sonic speed. Happy Valentine’s Day!
