The Sonic the Hedgehog movie has been previewed by Paramount pictures in April of 2019, and it was not received with much fanfare. Many long-time video games and Sonic fans lamented to the origin of the cartoonish character. Which took a garish turn trying to recreate the live-action film style that so many of our childhoods have had to endure thanks to modern CGI. To catch up, the less initiated, let's roll the trailer.
As you can see, the Sonic character is a bit too real for what Sonic is. Everything about Sonic's anatomy and overall appearance feels wrong for what he has been through the life of his character and associated game's character art.
Fans have even remade the trailer with what seems to be a broadly acceptable appearance for the ring obsessed blue spiny mammal. I, for one, think the fan-made version feels more faithful to the original and also looks better, whereas the first trailer feels like a painfully bad MOCAP/CGI blunder.
The Director of the Sonic movie Jeff Fowler took to Twitter promising that they would fix Sonic. He also stated they are fully committed to making the character the BEST he can be.
And now we have this, leaked shots which show a Sonic that seems far more accurate to form. Let's hope with the number of resources Paramount has available that Sonic indeed will be the best version we could imagine. Are you still excited to see the new sonic film which is scheduled to launch in theaters November 8th.
