Sonic the Hedgehog, known as Sonic the Movie (ソニック・ザ・ムービー) in Japan, is a live-action film featuring an animated Sonic the Hedgehog. The film stars Ben Schwartz as Sonic the Hedgehog and Jim Carrey as Dr. Robotnik, alongside James Marsden as Tom Wachowski, Tika Sumpter, Natasha Rothwell, Adam Pally, and Neal McDonough.

The film was initially set for a theatrical release on 18 November 2019 in the US, but due to negative feedback from fans regarding Sonic's design in the initial trailer the film was delayed to update Sonic's model, and the film's release was rescheduled for 14 February 2020.[5] The redesign was shown in a new trailer, with Sonic's new appearance receiving praise.

Sonic the Hedgehog premiered at the Paramount Theatre on 25 January 2020, and was theatrically released in the United States on February 14, 2020. The Japanese premiere was planned for 27 March 2020, but was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The film received praise for the cast performances (particularly Carrey's), Sonic's design, visuals and faithfulness to the source material, but criticism for its plot and perceived lack of originality.

The film's success led to the production of a 2022 sequel, titled Sonic the Hedgehog 2.
