The Sonic the Hedgehog movie opens with a pretty action-packed sequence. The first few seconds show the Blue Blur being chased by Dr. Robotnik in the present across the streets of San Francisco. On top of that, we see that Baby Sonic was forced to escape to Earth.

It seems that the Sonic film could have opened in a very different way. Now that the movie’s Blu-ray release is here, deleted scenes are popping up online, including an alternate opening. The scene features Green Hills, Montana resident Crazy Carl, who hopes to catch Sonic by setting up traps – but ultimately fails.

Here’s a look at the clip:

Pokemon the Movie: Coco was originally set to debut in Japan on July 10. But due to the coronavirus, its premiere has been pushed back to an unspecified date. The Pokemon Company apologized in today’s announcement.

Zarude, a new Mythical Pokemon, will be making one of its first major appearances in Pokemon the Movie: Coco. It will eventually be offered in Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield. You can learn more about the creature in our previous post here.


Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, most companies have their employees working from home. That includes Illumination, the studio behind the upcoming Super Mario Bros. animated movie.

Despite the change in work environment, Illumination is apparently very well equipped for the situation. All aspects of development, production, and marketing are being done remotely. Illumination has actually always been involved with remote work due to the daily collaboration of producers, artists, designs, editors, and more between their Paris and Santa Monica staff. A source told Deadline that the past two months have been “an extremely productive, innovative and creative time at the company.”

The Super Mario Bros. movie will arrive sometime in 2022. Shigeru Miyamoto and Illumination founder Chris Meledandri are co-producing.
