Ahead of Sonic Prime hitting Netflix, check out these exclusive stills from the blue blur’s new series, showing Amy Rose, Knuckles, and Tails in his biplane, and more.
Sonic Prime is the latest animated outing for SEGA’s iconic video game speedster, seeing him team up with his trusty heroes after a run-in with Dr. Eggman results in a universe-shattering event.
Written by Justin Peniston and Duncan Rouleau and developed by Man of Action, the collective behind Ben 10 and Ultimate Spider-Man, it’s the sixth animated show in the franchise and the second to be computer-animated, coming after the success of Sonic Boom.
Exclusive Sonic Prime stills tease team-ups and biplane
Sonic Prime is due to arrive on Netflix next week. Ahead of its premiere, Dexerto has been given four exclusive stills from the upcoming show, which you can check out below:
In the first image, we can see Sonic and Knuckles back-to-back as they’re presumably surrounded by Eggman’s Badniks. In the second, we can see Sonic charming Amy Rose, and in the third, Sonic works with Tails on some sort of compartment – could this relate to the Shatterverse, perhaps?
In the fourth image, we see Tails, Amy Rose, and Knuckles all riding the Tornado biplane together, and they all look rather concerned about something in the distance. Is it one of Eggman’s robots, or something else entirely?
How to watch Sonic Prime early
Sonic Prime is coming to Netflix on December 15 – however, as a gift to fans familiar or new to the iconic blue blur, the streaming platform is debuting the first 40-minute episode in the Sonic Speed Simulator on Roblox.
