    Nightmare fuel: ad agency Hamagami/Carroll Inc. has published what appears to be the final design of Sonic for his silver-screen debut, and according to most fans, it’s every bit as disappointing as the teaser posters hinted at. One complaint is that the blue blur’s body appears far too human, highlighting the uncomfortable fact he’s a naked hedgehog. Creator Yuji Naka thinks it sucks, and fans have been busy sharing better edits.

    By 2019 standards, the face isn’t terrible! But the whole thighs/hips region is very uncomfortable to look at. It doesn’t look like HCI were responsible for the redesign of the character himself; their work is detailed as having been tasked with producing a new universal packaging and marketing scheme, where all the different “types” of Sonic—like “Classic Sonic, Modern Sonic, Film Sonic [and] Animation Sonic”—can be presented the same way.

    I mean, good gawd, just look at this shit:

    I feel like his werehog form from Sonic Unleashed looked better than this nonsense.

    This fan-made correction looks worlds better:

    Also I thought Naoto Ohshima was the creator of Sonic the Hedgehog, not Yuji Naka.

    Fully agreed this version is far better. It is the classic sonic eyes, big feet, long legs and short torso. Hope the directors revisit the look.

    Why are 2019 standards worse than 1991 standards?

    That hedgehog makes me sad. It's like my hopes from Mania were just violated.

    But these hedgehogs won't make me sad. ever.

    How cool would it be if they used Grinch technology?

    Well, it is definitely different and a little strange. Then again, with Jim Carey in it, that is to be expected. :D ;) ;)

    He looks like he could be the cousin of rocket the raccoon from Guardians of the galaxy. Hopefully he is just as foul-mouthed.

    My guess us they probably had an actor in a mocap suit and making a more true to video game version of Sonic did not map well to the suit.

    Isn't the point of a trailer to make you want to watch the show? This makes me want to 100% skip this, even when it comes out on Netflix.

    I'm going to treat this like I treat Star Wars, which has three films (plus or minus the Christmas special). The Sonic series ended on the Genesis (or maybe the 32x, I don't know Chaotix was more weird than anything)
