New Sonic Design Debuts in Brand New Sonic Movie Trailer | Video Spotlight

Tuesday, November 12th, 2019

After the negative reception of Sonic’s look in the first trailer for the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog movie, Paramount Pictures have gone back to the drawing board, delayed the film until February 2020 and given the visual effects team some extra time to redesign the character. We now have our first look at Sonic’s redesigned with this brand new trailer. Check it out below:

While the design still looks quite similar to the original, with Sonic having 2 separated eyes and lots of finer spines on his back, he definitely looks more like his game model with an overall cuter look and the addition of gloves instead of white fur on his hands. His shoes are also more comparable to those of the games as well.

The Sonic the Hedgehog movie will now launch on February 14th 2020. Ben Schwartz voices Sonic with James Marsden playing his police officer friend Tom and Jim Carrey taking the role of Dr. Robotnik.

First Look at Sonic’s Appearance in the 2019 Sonic the Hedgehog Movie

Monday, December 10th, 2018

2019 is shaping up to be the year that our beloved video game heroes are making the jump to the big screen and now it’s Sonic’s turn. IGN have showcased the first poster for the film which shows off a lot of Sonic’s new design.

Sonic is a lot furrier than he has appeared before (very much in keeping with how the Pokemon look in Detective Pikachu), and he’s sporting a more traditional pair of red running shoes. He also appears to have a more athletic look with blue arms. He might not even be wearing gloves, but it might simply be a case that the lack of light in this image obscures a smaller pair of gloves than we’re used to seeing. While Sonic’s face is obscured in this image, IGN’s interview with Neal Moritz seems to suggest Sonic’s eyes will be separate instead of the more traditional ‘one eye with two pupils’.

The poster also features a tagline which reads, “A Whole New Speed of Hero”.

The Sonic the Hedgehog movie is due to release on the 8th of November 2019 in the US. The UK gets the film the following month on the 26th of December 2019. Ben Schwartz will voice Sonic the Hedgehog who befriends James Marsden’s Tom Wachowski character. Jim Carrey will also step into the role of Dr. Robotnik (not Eggman). The film will be directed by Jeff Fowler.
