A Reddit fan theory proposes that Jim Carreythe character in the truman show and in Sonic the Hedgehog is the same person.
Yes, according to Redditor Travis_Blake, Dr. Robotnik from the 2020 movie and its 2022 sequel is just Truman Burbank decades in the future. Here’s how the Redditor explains it:
“Once Truman Burbank escaped from his cave, he began his journey to explore and understand the world around him. With such a recognizable face, people were happy to help him on his academic adventure in exchange for research, inside information, etc. related to the show. With recognition, he grows a mustache and changes his name to have something for himself. [He calls himself] Robotnik to refer to the robotic actions of his previous life and how he found himself.”
Then, after a couple of decades, “Truman’s distrust of people increases as privacy decreases and technology increases. He doesn’t want to be the target again, so he becomes the observer. Robotnik has a big ego as if he were the main character, something that was carried over from the reveal of the show. Lying to him to hurt him, causing him to isolate himself and become more angry at the world. Stone is the only person he trusts, as is Lauren.”
Furthermore, Travis_Blake clarified that the theory applies to Sonic the Hedgehog movies, not games.
Although it has 279 upvotes and counting, the theory’s responses range from “This is the kind of shit I’m coming to this subreddit for” to “I’ll take what you’re smoking.”
Watch the movies in a row to see if the Redditor is right, or if he’s smoking something. (Both can be true.)
