The First Sonic Movie Poster Appears

IGN has published an exclusive look at Sonic in the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog movie. Judging from comments online regarding Sonic’s look in the movie some fans aren’t happy with his design. Sonic The Hedgehog movie comes out in November 2019 and here are a few choice comments from the exclusive IGN interview.

“It would be weird and it would feel like he was running around nude if he was some sort of otter-like thing. It was always, for us, fur, and we never considered anything different. It’s part of what integrates him into the real world and makes him a real creature.”

“We looked at every different variation of what shoes he’s worn and we’re trying to pay homage to that and also make it current and present day in what we think a Sonic of today would wear,” producer Neal Moritz 

“I don’t think SEGA was entirely happy with the eye decision, but these sorts of things you go, ‘It’s going to look weird if we don’t do this.’ But everything is a discussion, and that’s kind of the goal, which is to only change what’s necessary and stay true to the rest of it,” said Miller. “He’s not going to feel like a Pixar character would because I don’t think that’s the right aesthetic to make it feel like part of our world.”

“The first thing you need to do is put limits on it. If you can do anything, nothing is special. For me, it’s always about keeping it grounded and keeping it realistic,” said Miller. “We had some time to figure out the speed: What it looks like, what it feels like for a character to do that and how it relates to our world. It took a little trial and error, but that’s animation in figuring out what the effect looks like and what it does to the rest of the world around it. The speed changes over time because he evolves, because he can’t do everything at the beginning of the movie. It’s finding the visual language and figuring out how it’s going to evolve over time.”

“Obviously the poster can only show so much. … That’s a hint at what we’re hoping to accomplish, but I think people are going to see things they’ve probably never seen before in trying to represent speed in this movie,” said Moritz. “We’ve worked so closely with the people at SEGA who are kind of the gatekeepers of Sonic to make sure we’re lockstep. We’re trying to make something that’s for today that fans of different versions will love as well.”

  1. Lmao looks like a regular guy with a bobblehead mask of Sonic wearing some Nike air maxxs. Looks like sports mascots are finally breaking into the cinema world lol

  2. … Oh. My. God. Did they put a Sonic mascot mask on a skinny, short basketball player? *shudders* I’m scared to see what the damn face looks like. I… I don’t like this look at all. Make it fucking smaller!

  3. They given him human eyes or something??? 😲 That’s a terrifying notion lol … I don’t like the way he is at all, if the trailer is anything like the detective Pikachu film then… S**t!

  4. This ladies and gentlemen, is what what happens when you don’t know what the intelligent fans (meaning, no kids) of the Sonic franchise truly wants.

    1. You’re the second person I’ve seen today say it looks fake. xD I can’t help but agree with the both of you, though. It does look fake as hell. But we thought the Slender Man trailer was also fake back when it was first shown. (From what I’ve heard of the film, we are actually wishing it was fake now.)

  5. Guys, I have found the excellent music for this movie!
