There is little doubt that the Sonic the Hedgehog movie will explore the beloved game character's origins. So how exactly does Sonic get his iconic red shoes? A new TV spot reveals that it comes from an unexpected source.

The new TV spot was released by Paramount Australia and has been shared on Twitter. You can watch the brief 20-second teaser below.


The TV spot features most of the footage that has already been revealed in the recent trailer. However, this one also features a young girl giving Sonic the shoes that we already know and love.

It's unclear who the little girl is. However, it is believed that she could be the daughter of James Marsden's character Tom Wachowski. Either way, we can't wait to see how the girl found those shoes in the first place and why she gave them to Sonic.

The premise of Sonic the Hedgehog movie reads as follows:

"Sonic is a blue anthropomorphic hedgehog from Planet Mobius, who comes to Earth to escape baddies seeking to harness his power of super-speed. After accidentally causing a massive power outage while hiding out in the town of Green Hills, Montana, he is targeted by the government who hire the malevolent roboticist Dr. Robotnik to hunt him down. Meanwhile, ex-SFPD officer-turned-Green Hills sheriff Tom Wachowski meets Sonic and decides to help him evade capture, collect his rings, and stop Robotnik from using Sonic's powers for world domination."

Sonic the Hedgehog is scheduled for release on February 14, 2020.
