A feature-length live action “Sonic the Hedgehog” will hit the theaters in November 2019 and Paramount Pictures offered an early teaser showing Sonic’s new big-screen look for the first time. The first release, however, led to a full-blown drama after the fans reacted in unexpected ways.
Sonic is best known as the mascot of Sega in the 90s. While he has not seen new releases in the past decade, multiple cartoon spin-off and games were created nearly every year.This year, a live action movie is in its post-production works and the release of the first posters resulted in a rather interesting reaction, ranging from shock to horror.
The fans don’t seem too keen on Sonic’s new look. Many fans called for a return to Sonic’s classic-cartoon origins. Several described the new “Sonic the Hedgehog” as horrifying, while some even used the term ‘abomination’ loosely.
The criticisms on Sonic’s new look covered changes which include muscular physique, beefy legs, CGI fur, different eyes and brand new shoes, above all else.
The new “Sonic the Hedgehog” has fur – a markedly different visual depiction of the 90s character that the fans are used to. “That was always Stage 1 of adapting it to what the real world is and what a real animal would be like,” executive producer Tim Miller said. “It would be weird and it would feel like he was running around nude if he was some sort of otter-like thing.”
Sonic also depicts an uncomfortably muscular physique and heavily toned legs as opposed to the very noodle-like appendages he’s had for over a decade and a half. A third poster released on Twitter inspired more polarizing memes about Sonic’s legs.
Another change which was not entirely revealed in the teaser is the eyes. “I don’t think SEGA was entirely happy with the eye decision,” Miller shared.
“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 final, albeit, quite prominent change was the shoes. “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 said.
Miller explained that the team was looking to update Sonic’s design so that it would be something that fit in the real world- and the publisher wasn’t crazy about the idea.
