I know we've all heard of it, so how many of you so far have watched the trailer for the Sonic The Hedgehog movie that dropped today, and what are your thoughts on it?

I....really don't know where to begin. Sonic looks awful, it seems Eggman won't start adopting the look and characteristics he's known for until the end of the movie to try and push the idea of a sequel, rings being Dr. Strange portals is just a piss poor attempt of forcing them into the movie, and I need to say it again, Sonic is awful.

The story itself might not have been too bad. A strange hedgehog appears and people wonder what the hell it is. At least there we could get a good reason for how Sonic exists (although I bet the actual reason we get is a crock of shit); however, I wonder if it would hold up when explaining every other character in the Sonic universe as appearing on Earth out of nowhere. Clearly Sonic doesn't know any of the other characters, so they didn't come together which makes an origin story for them all harder to pull off.

The CG side of things though is abysmal. When you have a movie like Detective Pikachu where the characters are faithful, albeit a little weird to get used to seeing CG'd, it makes this Sonic stand out so badly. This movie has no chance of performing well. It won't attract fans of Sonic, and I doubt it'll attract new ones. The only achievement it's going to have is making Sonic 2006 look good by comparison.

They could've made this work, but all I see here is a poor attempt to cash in on the Detective Pikachu trend. Errm

I'll never know why they chose that design for Sonic. I could get behind the slight electric properties of his speed, but that's about it. The visual side of it is completely wrong, and will be the main reason I won't watched this among being a live action in the real world Sonic movie. For some reason I kinda like Carrey's Eggman though, but probably because of how much I disliked everything else. Agreed about rings, when did they ever do that? Or at least not small rings, as I suppose big rings signalled end of a level or were/are portrayed as a portal somewhere else in the Sonic universe that I don't know about.

Carrey is probably the only thing that can be salvaged from this movie. The design for Sonic screams executive oversight though, because there is no way the team who would have come up with the design for Sonic would have willingly gone for what we have. There are so many people on Twitter putting out better versions of how Sonic should've been and that was within the day the trailer came out, so the people working on the movie could have absolutely done better. There's just clearly some dipshit who's out of touch pulling the strings on what this movie should be doing.

The Director of the movie has responded to the backlash, just saw a video recommended to me about this and checked it out.

Wonder if they'll push the release back because of the potential changes, as doing so between now and the current date will be difficult to do. Hopefully the new design won't be worse. XD

I don't think the new design could possibly be worse. I do however hope that if they decided on the time frame this change has to be made in, that it was ran by the animators first and they didn't just throw them under the bus to crunch out something new. Of course it's obvious the director/producers aren't going to give a shit if crunch has to happen because it isn't going to affect them, but I like to hope the decision of some twat in a suit doesn't have repercussions on the people who really had nothing to do with the Sonic design we got.

So we can rest easy over the possibility of a bad crunch for the changes to Sonic to happen. The Sonic the Hedgehog movie is delayed until next year:

Still, good to see the delay I suppose. That fact they used a glove holding the sign has given us hope they're doing a proper Sonic, or at least he has gloves now. Not 3D yet, but in concept stages again, or that's done and they're on to sorting out the model.
