Sonic Saves the World in the First Sonic The Hedgehog Trailer

Every hero has a genesis… And with that groan-worthy pun out of the way, check out Paramount Pictures’ first trailer for Sonic The Hedgehog, in which everyone’s favorite speed demon of a hedgehog comes to Earth to interact with humans, Detective Pikachu-style, and possibly save them. Ben Schwartz is serving some uncanny-valley looks with that animation, while James Marsden is his human buddy—and Jim Carrey chews scenery as Dr. Robotnik.

It’s unclear if Sonic is supposed to be more alien or lab experiment, but he’s got a whole host of abilities, some familiar from the Sega games and others decidedly not: part Neo, part Quicksilver, part Doctor Strange (with those ring portals), all attitude.

Sonic The Hedgehog speeds into theaters November 8.
