Disney recently released a new trailer of Wreck-It Ralph, which features Sonic desperately trying to look cool by doing an old pose he did for Sonic 2006. Eggman appears on the poster as well along with other characters like Qbert, Zangief, M. Bison and Qbert. You can click on the poster on the left for a bigger version.
Sonic appears in the new trailer as well. You can see that one here. He only appears of like one second so blink and you might miss him. He also appears in a different scene in the Japanese trailer for an even shorter amount of time. He appears at about the 0:36 timestamp. In the scene it looks like he joined a party with a bunch of characters from the fictional game the main character of the movie comes from, Fix-It Felix Jr. You can see Wreck-It Ralph in theaters from November 2nd.
UPDATE: Disney has released four more posters for the movie, with one of them having Sonic front and center and another one with Eggman standing behind M. Bison. Another one of the posters also has that rhino boss from Altered Beast, so that’s neat. Also, yes Sonic does actually look kinda cool in the new poster, but my point that he is desperately trying to do so still stands! You can see the new posters in the gallery below.
It’s no surprise that Sonic will have a cameo in Disney’s upcoming movie Wreck-It Ralph. With so many classic videogame characters appearing in it Sonic was bound to be included, especially with Eggman making an appearance as well. Now we’ve got a confirmation that he’s not just going to sit or walk by like a lot of the cameos.
At the Comic-Con panel for Wreck-It Ralph the first 10 minutes of the film were shown, and in those 10 minutes a PSA was shown with Sonic explaining that if a game character dies in a game that’s not their own they die for good. Seemingly a reference to the Sonic Sez segments from Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog. There’s no confirmation on who will be voicing Sonic in the movie, we already know that Zangief (from the Street Fighter games) isn’t voiced by his normal voice actor in the movie so there’s some doubt on if Roger Craig Smith will be playing the role.
You can expect to see Wreck-It Ralph in theaters from November 2nd, 2012 in the US.
