Nobody truly thinks this Sonic film is definitely going to be good, proper? Knowing what we do now, no one’s sitting there eagerly ready for this utter monstrosity to take to the massive display, are they? I hope not.
The reason behind my ire is a reported leak of the character’s art work from leisure branding company Hamagami/Carroll Inc (by way of Eurogamer). They appeared final night time, and whereas there’s nothing deeply incorrect with them, they’re simply unsettling. Sonic is meant to be a hedgehog, and but in the intervening time, the upcoming live-action movie makes him appear like he’s attempting a lot too laborious to be human.
I’ve determined (thanks to IGN’s Tom Marks) that the difficulty primarily stems from Sonic’s eyes, which in these photographs are bereft of a lot of the cartoony nature that made the character in any method endearing within the first place. I’m not precisely glad about the remainder of it (particularly not after that notorious leg leak), however the eyes are undoubtedly probably the most upsetting half.
The complete factor is so upsetting, in truth, that it’s attracted the eye of Sonic’s unique creator. Yuji Naka took to Twitter this morning, asking “is this a Sonic movie?”

He went on (by way of Microsoft translate) to say that “I feel it is important to look at the whole body visual of Sonic and head, body, and stomach. Did you not get a little more balance?”
There’s no assure that that is the ultimate model of the live-action Sonic, nevertheless it does appear to align with every little thing we’ve seen to this point. We’ll want to attend for the movie’s first trailer for affirmation, and given its November launch date, these must be turning up comparatively quickly (however I gained’t blame you in the event you select to avert your eyes).
