    Plot Summary: The hybrid CG-animated/live-action feature is based on the acclaimed "Sonic the Hedgehog" video game series. The film will look to capture Sonic’s irreverent tone and spirit, reuniting him with some of the most revered and infamous characters of the franchise, including the evil Dr. Eggman. Playful, mischievous, and quick on his feet in more ways than one, the world’s fastest hedgehog is known for his ability to move at supersonic speed to protect his friends from their enemies. "Sonic the Hedgehog" was first seen in 1991 on the SEGA Genesis. Since then, the character was inducted into the “World Video Game Hall of Fame” in 2016.

    Doesn't look as joyously insane as Detective Pikachu (apart from the mad choice of trailer music), but still looks way better than it has any right to.

    ive seen a lot of negativity with regards to this. i agree that it doesnt look as fun as detective pikachu, but without being a sonic fan, im still interested in this.

    I think it looks like crap. There was not one thing in that trailer that made me want to see it.

    Well I never thought I would hear Gangster's Paradise being apart of Sonic the Hedgehog. Carrey looks too way over the top in this one I'll give this a shot.

    I thought everything about this movie was fake...I still can't believe it's real.

    Apparently there's been such a backlash to the character design that they're gonna make some changes to him.

    Frankly the completely generic trailer worries me way more than how Sonic looks, though it is bad. The pedigree behind this movie is pretty unimpressive and the trailer looks like any number of bad paint-by-numbers blockbusters.

    Tbf, it's a giant speedy blue hedgehog, it's either that or mutant experiment gone wrong

    Don't see what the fuss is about to be honest. My 6yo nephew thinks this looks cool and he's probably closer to the target market than 90% of the people complaining.

    Don't think for a second that the targeted demo is just young children. You've got a wildly popular video game character that has been around for over twenty-five years, in his very first movie (theatrical too!)? They're hoping to draw in adults that used/still love to play the games.

    Won't dispute that for a minute, but I'd argue the younger demo is more likely to buy all the merch and marketing that this movie will probably need to justify any further films.

    So this movie has been delayed until February 14, 2020. Looks like it's time to do some editing.

    It won't if they don't edit Sonic the image we wanted.

    Re: Sonic The Hedgehog (2020)

    Hmm.

    I've always been a huge Sonic fan, and I know I'm going to be the minority when I say this but....I thought he looked fine. Would I have wanted it a bit different? Sure. But I wasn't too bothered by it.

    Honestly, I was a bit more upset that they didn't have some kind of fat suit or CGI for Jim Carrey as Eggman. A skinny Dr Robotnik just seems odd!

    I mean, I actually thought this looks better to me than (As a long time Pokemon fan) Detective Pikachu looks. :/

    I dunno, I'll watch it either way.
    Everything will surely be alright.

    Admittedly, this Sonic looks 10x better than the original

    The trailer gives off real Detective Pikachu vibes. I'm pretty excited actually.

    Yeah so the new redesign reportedly cost 5 million dollars. The budget has reportedly risen to 90 million dollars.
