Sonic The Hedgehog - Movie Review

Sonic the Hedgehog raced into theaters and back into our hearts.  He's been delighting fans for decades in the world of video games so it's no wonder this movie met with big success opening weekend.  If you think this movie is one that just the kids will enjoy though, you're mistaken.  Fans young and old of the little "blue devil" will find comedy and life lessons to enjoy.

So why Sonic now?  I spent some time thinking about this as I watched the movie and came to the conclusion it was the perfect time for a Sonic the Hedgehog movies.  Those of us that grew up playing Sonic on our SEGA Game Gear's and SEGA Genesis systems now have kids playing Sonic on their devices.  As soon as the movie began, I felt a twinge of nostalgia at the excitement of seeing one of my favorite childhood games come to life on the big screen.


Sonic The Hedgehog FREE Family Fun Activities

Are you as excited as we are about Sonic The Hedgehog heading to the big screen?  As someone who grew up playing this game on my SEGA Game Gear (there's a blast from your past!) and now watching my own kids race Sonic across their tablets, I feel like this is the movie I've been waiting to see my entire life!

Can't wait to get in on the Sonic fun?  Well you don't have to wait any longer!  Below are two free printable activities for your family to enjoy.  The first is a set of Sonic Valentine's Day cards to get every kid's heart racing!  My oldest is using these for his Valentine's Day celebration at school and is super excited to share them with his friends.  Then, you can find a fun math activity printable - perfect for educators and parents alike. I know math activities may not sound like they are the most exciting when it comes to little ones, but trust me when I tell you that these provide a fun way to engage in learning - without even realizing it!


Sonic The Hedgehog Sneak Peek

The Paramount Pictures trailer for Sonic The Hedgehog just released, but guess what?!? I got to see it last week in a special sneak peek as part of The Geekly Retreat and our visit to Paramount!  I had to keep this a secret, which was hard because I have to say I'm pretty excited about this film and my son is even more excited than I am!  Check out his reaction. . .

So what am I most excited about when it comes to this movie?  First, I love the fact that an old school video game character from my childhood is still cool to kids today and getting some love.  I think the story idea is cute.  While we don't know much, it seems Sonic decides to leave life inside his game and give the "real world" a try.  Jim Carey appears to be a great blend of funny and mean from what we see in the trailer - the perfect villain qualities for a kids movie.
