In 2014, Sony studio announced the filming of the movie on the game franchise “Sonic”. Three years later, Paramount Pictures studio received the rights to the project and planned a release date for the picture for 2019. Jim Carrey, James Marsden (“The World of the Wild West”) are involved in the cast of Sonic in Cinema (Sonic the Hedgehog), and Ben Schwartz will sound the hedgehog himself (“Parks and Recreation Areas”). However, the plot is still kept secret.

In the middle of December 2018, Paramount studio released the first poster of the movie about Sonic, where it partially showed what the blue hedgehog will look like. Users of social networks were surprised by the new concept of the character, especially his fur, human legs, slender fingers and a strange pose. The character was called “hairy naked little man.”

Later, a second poster appeared where Sonic was sitting on top of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. The unusual angle and hairy legs of the hero became a reason for jokes in social networks.

A few days later another promotional material flowed into the network, featuringChris Pratt, who should play one of the main roles.

On March 4, a new picture with the concept of Sonic appeared on the website of the advertising agency Hamagami / Carroll, which specializes in branding for the entertainment industry. The hero has white hands, shaggy eyebrows and a sharp nose. The media noted that in the upcoming film the hedgehog is likely to look that way.

Users of social networks are confused by the changes in character design. Many have noted that it is unrecognizable and does not look like its old version.


“The problem with the Sonic concept from the film is that it follows the silhouette rule, but its details are so distorted that Sonic is barely recognizable. / For example, imagine that you have merged the concept of Detective Pikachu. It can be recognized even in low quality. ”
Then the artists tried to “fix” the design of the hero. Some replaced Sonic’s hands with gloves, Nike sneakers with shoes, while others added socks and clothes to a “naked” character.

“Here, my attempt to correct the concept of Sonic in the film”

“So … I understand that they tried to make Sonic look like a human being, but this merged concept is so shapeless and indefinite. I understand [why they removed] the gloves, but leave him at least socks, god ”


“Okay, I’m not saying that the Sonic movie team should hire me, but since you give him human legs, at least cover them”
Users of social networks also noticed that Sonic’s usual eyes had changed. And corrected this omission.

“One more attempt! This time I wanted to test the idea of ​​“separate eyes” from the Sonic concept, so I slightly changed the shape of the eyes and nose. What do you think?”


I noticed that many people say that Sonic’s merged concept is not so bad, he just does not have distinctive eyes. / So I made them. / See, I have not changed the fur, eyebrows and iris of the eye, but added classic eyes ”
Soon photojabs with Sonic’s “improved” design appeared in social networks


“Once [Polygon editor] Samit Sarkar said that Sonic’s version of the film would have looked better if he had the eyes of a real hedgehog. I want to refute this once and for all ”


“A bit of pixel art magic, and things are getting better!”


“I thought that the render of Sonic reminds me of someone … Oh, here he is”


“He looks better every day.”


“Hey, Hollywood, how about hiring a real gamer at least once? / Left: what you want / Right: what Sonic fans want / This. Not. Complicated”


“The concept of Sonic from the movie could not be a hug …”

The problem is that it makes it possible for it to be true.

Here, as an example, let’s pretend Detective Pikachu was leaked. Even in low quality, it remains its recocnizable features. https://t.co/41wknYtpjT
