NEW SONIC UNDERGROUND

"Buffer"

ACT ONE

FADE IN.

EXT. ROBOTROPOLICE - NIGHT

We see a whole layout of Robotropolice at night. Robot's creaking, hovercrafts moving, lights blinking, everything is active and yet quiet.

CUT TO:

INT. MAIN BUILDING - HALLWAY

We see a huge dark hallway that's vacant. Suddently, a shadow of a huge fat bald man appears running down the halls like someone was chasing him.

SERIES OF SHOTS

We see a bunch of shots of the fat man running down the halls, breathing heavily in fear. We close on his face to see it's DOCTOR ROBOTNIK. Then we see a shadow running right behind him. It's a shadow of a hedgehog chasing Robotnik.

ANOTHER ANGLE

Robotnik runs, and trips over a pipe. As soon as he hits the ground, the sound rumbles like if your head was underwater and the picture is showing in slow-motion and strobe. Robotnik get's up and turns around.

ROBOTNIK'S P.O.V.

We see the shadow of the hedgehog chasing him. It pulls out a lazer gun and fires.

ON ROBOTNIK

The lazer misses as Robotnik get's up.

ON HEDGEHOG

The hedgehog continues chasing Robotnik. Then the hedgehog passes by a window where the moon shines through. We see the moon's light showing on the hedgehog's face. The hedgehog is QUEEN ALEENA HEDGEHOG.

WIDER

The picture and sound goes back to normal as Aleena keeps on chasing Robotnik through the halls.

ON ALENNA We see Alenna running with an angry look on her face.

ALEENA (V.O.) My name is Aleena Hedgehog, Queen of Mobius, or so I thought.

DISSOLVE TO.

INT. CASTLE - HALLWAY

As Aleena chases Robotnik, we dissolve to seeing Alenna chasing a little blue 1-year-old hedgehog in diapers happily.

ALEENA I'm gonna getchya! I'm gonna getchya!

The blue hedgehog in diapers is SONIC THE HEDGEHOG. He speaks in a child- like accent.

SONIC Can't catch me! Can't catch me!

Soon, Aleena catches Sonic and Sonic giggles. Aleena tickles Sonic happily.

ALEENA Whoops, gotchya Sonie!

Sonic just laughs as Aleena tickles and hugs him.

ALEENA (V.O.) I gave birth to three children. There names are Sonic, Sonia, and Manic. I thought to myself, what a happy time we'll all have together.

CUT TO:

INT. KITCHEN

We see a 1-year-old green male hedgehog sittin' in a high chair wearing a bib and a diaper. This is MANIC THE HEDGEHOG. Aleena sits in front of him with a bowl in one hand and a little spoon in the other. She pulls out the spoon and holds the spoon with the baby food on it to Manic.

ALEENA Come on, Manic. Open up.

Manic just turns his head and crosses his arms. He also speaks in a baby accent.

MANIC No!

ALEENA Manic, open up so da pwane can fwy in.

Aleena tries to use the plane technique to get Manic to eat his food. Manic just turns his head the other way.

MANIC No! Me not hungry!

ALEENA (V.O.) Okay, so there were a few unhappy times.

CUT TO:

INT. LIVING ROOM

We see Aleena laying on her back on the carpeted floor with a pink female 1- year-old hedgehog wearing just a diaper in Aleena's hands. That hedgehog is SONIA THE HEDGEHOG. Sonia is giggling as Aleena is holding her high in the air, and bringing her down to her. Aleena and Sonia kiss as she brings her down to her.

ALEENA Here we go again. Weee!

Aleena lifts baby Sonia in the air again still in her hands and Sonia giggles.

ALEENA (V.O.) All in all, we were one of the happiest family in Mobotropolice.

DISSOLVE TO.

INT. BEDROOM

In the bedroom, we see one huge bed with small bars on the sides. Aleena's wearing anightgown. In the bed are Sonic and Manic in pajamas. Aleena is standing by a changing table fastening a diaper on Sonia. Aleena picks Sonia up.

ALEENA All done.

Sonia GIGGLES. Aleena steps to the bed with Sonia in her arms. Sonia is wearing her pajamas. Aleena's wearing her night gown.

ON BED

Aleena lays Sonia down next to her brothers in the bed and covers the blanket over her to her neck.

Aleena turns to leave.

SONIA Mommy?

Aleena stops and turns.

ALEENA Yeah, sweety?

SONIA Would you sing us the song?

Aleena SMILES.

ALEENA Of course I would.

Aleena walks to the bed, pulls a chair to her and sits in it. She then reaches off screen and pulls out and ACOUSTIC GUITAR. She lays it on her knee, puts her fingers on the fret board and holds the pick in her hand. She then plays a beautiful balad acoustic music to them.

ALEENA (singing) My children, Sonic Sonia Manic. And I love them, through and through. My own three children. Does she love them? Yes, I do.

As she sings, the three hedgehog slowly begin to close their eyes and beginning to sleep. Aleena strums the last note and still hums the song. She smiles at how cute the three look together. She puts the guitar down, leans over and kisses Sonia on the cheek. She then leans over and kisses Sonic on the cheek, and then kisses Manic on the cheek. She sle leans over, she slowly and quietly lays in the bed with them. She looks at them again, then crawls under the blankets and lays in the bed with her three children. Soon, she closses her eyes.

WIDER

We now see a wide view of Aleena, Sonic, Sonia, and Manic sleeping in the bed all together.

CUT TO:

INT. DARK CAVE-LIKE PLACE

Inside, we see a strange place that looks like a cave. We PAN TO an issolated corner. In the corner, we see a strange looking guy wearing a robe, although we can't see his face. His entire short body is covering up something that glowing behind him.

CLOSER

The glowing stops and the figure turns. We see that the figure is the ORACLE OF DELPHIUS.

ORACLE No, it can't be.

He walks off into the caves. He's talking to himself.

ORACLE I can't believe that the royal future comes down to this. Something must be done. But what?

INT. ORACLE LIBRARY - SAME TIME

We are in the library where the Oracle holds his books. In the corner of the library is a waterfall-like enterance and exit. The Oracle looks through his books trying to find something.

ORACLE It's got to be around here somewhere.

ON BOOKS

The Oracle moves his hands through the books like mad trying to find something.

ORACLE (V.O.) Here it is!

The ORacle pulls out a book from the shelf.

ANOTHER ANGLE

The Oracle places a book on the book holder and flips it open.

ORACLES P.O.V.

We see the book is just text. He flips through the pages looking for something. He stops at a page and points his finger through it.

CLOSE ON BOOK

At this zoom, we see the text easy and huge to see. The Oracle's findertip is rather large on the screen too. He looks through the text which is a series of numbers. the CAM stays with his fingertip as he looks through the numbers. Finally, he stops at a number showing a ten-didget number saying, '750487243'.

ORACLE Got it.

ON ORACLES HAND

The Oracle writes the number on his hand with a quill pen.

CUT TO:

We see a huge glowing crystal ball in the cave-like place. The Oracle's hand COMES INTO VIEW and it hovers over the top of the ball. We PAN TO see the Oracle starring at the ball. He has his eyes closed as the ball glows brighter.

CLOSE ON ORACLE

The Oracle looks at his palm.

ORACLE Seven... five... zero... four... eight... seven...

CUT TO:

INT. CASTLE - BEDROOM - SAME TIME

Aleena is still sleeping in beed with her children.

ORACLE (CONT.)(V.O.) two... four... three!

Instantly, Aleena's eyes opened up in fear. She breaths heavily.

ANOTHER ANGLE

Suddently, the Oracle fades into the room hovering in front of Aleena.

ALEENA Oracle. What are you doing here?

ORACLE Something has come up.

CUT TO:

INT. CAVELIKE PLACE

The Oracle had his eyes closed as he sits in front of the ball.

ALEENA (V.O.) Is it deadly serious?

ORACLE I think you better come--

CUT TO:

INT. BEDROOM - SAME TIME

ORACLE (CONT.) --over to the lair.

ALEENA It is bad, isn't it?

ORACLE You better come to the lair and see for yourself. And, bring your children with you.

DISSOLVE TO.

EXT. VALLEY - FAR FROM MOBOTROPOLICE - NIGHT

In the ground if this valley is a huge bay door. Stepping out of the shadows stand a huge fat man. He stands in front of the doors in the ground. PAN TO see the man's face. It's Doctor Robotnik!

ROBOTNIK Oh yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Years and years of planning and now I feel like it's actually going to work.

He clasps his hands evily.

CUT TO:

INT. BAY DOORS

Under the doors is a huge aircraft-like object. Inside are hundreds of SWAT Bots working on it. It's mostly completed but a few things aren't done yet which are being made as of now.

ON ELEVATOR

Robotnik rides an elevator down to the creation. As he looks out the window of the downward moving elevator, he looks at his creation and smiles.

ON OBJECT

The thing is huge. We see a bunch of displays on it, like a picture of Robotnik's face on the side. We then see the side showing the words "ROBOTOSIZER" on the side. It appears to be a huge Robotosizer planning to robotosize the buildings and take control over Mobotropolice.

ON ROBOTNIK

Robotnik looks down on it still happily.

CLOSE ON OBJECT

We look at all of the displays and decals of the object. It has Robotnik's face on it, the letter "R" on it.

ON ROBOTNIK

Robotnik smiles again.

ON ELEVATOR

The elevator stops and open up. Robotnik steps outside and walks to it. He places his hand on it and rubs it.

ROBOTNIK Marvelous, isn't it.

SWATBOT It will be underway in about 3 hours, sir.

ROBOTNIK Excellent.

ANOTHER ANGLE

Robotnik walks around the huge object staring happily at it. He smiles as he walks around it slowly, looking at every detail. As he's doing it, he's rubbing his hand along the serface.

ROBOTNIK All my life I've always wanted this to be real. I must have drawn it about a thousand diagrams of it and made models of it, but I was never able to touch the real thing. This is a heart-warming moment for me.

ANOTHER ANGLE

ROBOTNIK Soon enough, I'll use this baby to fly it over the city of Mobotropolice, and then, it'll be mine.

He laughs evily.

CUT TO:

INT. CAVE

The Oracle of Delphius sits alone reading a book.

ORACLE Good evening, Aleena.

The Oracle looks up.

ORACLE Or maybe I should say, good morning.

ANOTHER ANGLE

We see Queen Aleena still wearing her night gown under a red hooded coat. In her arms are the three sleeping hedgehogs.

ALEENA You called me over to tell me something Oracle?

ORACLE Indeed, your hinness. You see, it's only a matter of hours left until you have to fullfill your deed and quickly.

ALEENA Fullfill my deed? That doesn't sound good.

ORACLE I'm sorry, but it's not good at all. If I had the power and authority to alter this demand, I would change it quicker than you can say, "My, that was quick." But, you know as they say, things have to be done certain ways. Tell me your time before your children's birth, Aleena.

ON ALEENA

Aleena thought deeply.

ALEENA Well...

DISSOLVE TO.

INT. KITCHEN - DAY

We see a five-month pregnant Queen Aleena sitting at her table reading a book. The only different in looks, rather than the pregnant body she has, is that her hair is a tad bit shorter and brighter.

ALEENA (V.O.) I knew childhood was going to be hard for me, knowing I never had a child before.

CLOSE ON BOOK

We see that this is a book about babies for parents.

ALEENA (CONT.)(V.O.) I have held children before. I've nursed them, fed them, changed them, potty train them, and played with them. But those were all other peoples children I had to care for. Now I'm finally going to have a child of my own. I just never though of something so huge.

CUT TO:

INT. HOSPITAL ROOM

Inside, we see Aleena laying on a bed with a few doctors around her showing an Ultra Sound Video on a screen. On the screen, we see three little hedgehogs crampt into Aleena. One blue, one pink, and one green.

DOCTOR Well, your hiness, it appears that you are going to have triplets.

ON ALEENA

Aleena looked surprised.

ALEENA Triplets?

Then she smiled.

ALEENA (V.O.) "Triplets?"... that was all I could get out of my mouth. I was shocked and happy.

CUT TO:

INT. CAVE

Aleena is still speaking.

ALEENA (CONT.) I read books, I went to child classes. I had a feeling that I was ready. I knew sooner or later the day would come. And that day was the most wonderful day of my life.

Aleena smiles.

ON ORACLE

ORACLE How did it feel in your feeling about the birth of your children?

ON ALEENA Aleena is still smiling at the thought.

ALEENA It felt like my life was being born along with it. I was holding new life in myself to spread to the world. All three are my light and wonder. They are my life. Without them, I don't think I will be able to live anymore.

Aleena held all three sleeping hedgehogs closer to her face and nuzzled them.

ON ORACLE

ORACLE And how did it feel while you were sending them to the world.

ON ALEENA

Aleena then grew an angry face.

ALEENA It was the most painful period that I went through!

CUT TO:

INT. HOSPITAL - DELIVERY ROOM

We see Aleena in a hospital bed sweating and breathing hard as other doctors are on all her sides.

DOCTOR Come on! Keep breathing! Keep breathing!

Aleena SCREAMS.

DISSOLVE TO.

SAME PLACE

Aleena is laying in the hospital bed all alone while she holds three little hedgehoglets in her arms. One blue male, one pink female, and one green male. The three lay in Aleena's arms cooing. Aleena smiles at them, hair still sweaty.

ALEENA (V.O.) Since that day, I knew I had the best of the best laying right there in my arms.

CUT TO:

INT. CAVE

ORACLE Your Majesty, do you know a man named Doctor Ivo Robotnik?

ON ALEENA

Aleena grows a wide-eyed look.

CLOSE ON ALEENA'S EYES

She then grows angry looking eyes.

CUT TO:

INT. CASTLE - HALL - NIGHT

The view is in STROBE view, and we hear all the sounds echo. The sound so far is just heavy breathing.

CUT TO:

ON ALEENA

We see a little 5-year-old Aleena running through the halls. Her hair is shorter and brighter, she's wearing a princess gown. She's running in SLOW MOTIONG down the halls like something was chasing her.

ALEENA'S P.O.V.

She reaches the end of the hall. Then she turns around and looks on the wall of the hall. On the wall shows a shadow of a big fat man. Robotnik's voice echo's through her mind.

ROBOTNIK (V.O.) You have nowhere to go, Princess!

CUT TO:

INT. CAVE

ON ALEENA

Aleena still has that angry look on her face. Robotnik's voice is still heard.

ROBOTNIK (CONT.)(V.O.) As soon as my project is done, you'll be mine!

Aleena shook her head to wave out the thought. She breaths worriedly.

ALEENA Yes, I know Robotnik. Why?

ON ORACLE

The Oracle raises his hands to show a view. The view shows of Doctor Robotnik releasing his technology. It views everywhere showing many cities being turned into metal and terror.

ON ALEENA

Aleena grows frightened with that view.

ON ORACLE

The view then shows of many innocent civilians as robots, the robotosizer in action, and a bunch of SWAT Bots searching the city like crazy.

ORACLE This, Queen Aleena, is going to start tonight. Doctor Robotnik will unleash his new technology against Mobotropolice and turn it into a world of terror.

ALEENA You mean, this is going to happen tonight?

ORACLE Down to the last detail. All civilians will be taken away and robotosized. Meaning they'll turn into robots making them mindless slaves to Robotnik.

ALEENA Yeah, I know what robotosized means.

ORACLE You see, Mobius is built for peace. There is nothing no one can do to stop Doctor Robotnik from his rein of terror.

ALEENA We don't have an army or something?

ORACLE You're the one who said Mobius should be completely peaceful. All citizens will be robotosized and all aristocrats will be free to rome and walk unharmed. Doctor Robotnik will use them and their money to pay for his SWAT Bot factories.

The vision shows of a bunch of SWAT Bots running around the place destorying everything in sight.

ON ALEENA

Aleena is shocked and sad by the views.

ALEENA Oracle, will all this really happen tonight?

ORACLE Afraid so, your majesty. As I said, if I can prevent what I'm going to tell you, I would. But I have to tell you this.

ALEENA Tell me what?

ORACLE You see, the terror days are numbered! One day, you and your children will form the Council of Four. On that day, Robotnik's terror will end in a large smash.

ALEENA All four of us?

ORACLE Yes, but there is something you have to do in order for that to happen.

Aleena turned to the Oracle and worried.

ALEENA What?

ORACLE That's why I told you to bring your children here.

ALEENA I knew it. It's bad, isn't it!

ORACLE I say again, I absolutely don't want to do this to you... but I have to.

Aleena started to worry.

ON ORACLE

The visions from his hands faded away.

CLOSE ON ORACLE

ORACLE Your Majesty... in order for the prophacy to be full-filled, you must...

The Oracle pauses.

ON ALEENA

ALEENA I must what?

ON ORACLE

The Oracle looks up sadly.

ORACLE I don't want to do this, but... in order for the prophacy to be fullfilled... you must give up your children and separate them to different homes.

Upon those words, we FADE OUT.
