Is This Sonic In Sonic The Hedgehog Movie?

I’m not sure how to feel about this look. Right now it’s just pictures and it might look different in motion you know? Either way, we do have what appears to be our first look at the blue blur in the upcoming Sonic The Hedgehog movie. Take a look.

“Gotta go fast” right?

If we’re to believe this is what he does look like in the movie, what’s the verdict?

This is the first time I’ve seen fur definition on Sonic besides his transformation in Unleashed. I’m not entirely sure if it suits him here though.

The nudity is also oddly uncomfortable. I can’t put my finger on why either, maybe the humanoid physique? He’s always been naked in the games but then he had the cartoony look going for him. Really hard to see this live-action version properly.

Now there’s nothing wrong with CGI fuzzballs. Pikachu looks adorable in the upcoming Detective Pikachu movie, so what’s different there?

Maybe it’s the accuracy in his look as compared to Sonic? The hedgehog is ticking a few checkboxes I suppose.

  • He’s blue
  • He’s probably short
  • He’s got quills
  • His eyes are green
  • His shoes are red

Frankly we need to see a trailer or some sort of clip to officially give our take. Still pictures won’t do the character justice and it’s hard to judge him without seeing him move around and talk.

The supposedly fake picture with Chris Pratt in the car made Sonic look way cuter. This one, on the other hand, I’m not too sure about.

We do know that Jim Carrey also stars in the Sonic the Hedgehog movie so it’s not a completely lost cause. Although it’s harsh to say that so soon. All we’ve had so far is a few pictures and ambiguous teasers.

Sonic the Hedgehog is a gaming icon, dating back from the retro era and still running fast today. Do we think he’ll be able to break the video game movie curse yet?

Speaking of video game movies, Oscar Isaac spoke about portraying Solid Snake as well recently. His take on the video game movie curse was interesting.
