    You know it's like, they were confident enough that their first design of Sonic wasn't great, and were prepared if any fans gave any backlash. And so they had a design of the original Sonic as a fallback design to just render.

    Director: we will make a real life sonic move with sonic looking as realistic as possible
    Trailer comes out
    Fans: It looks bad,it is a disaster, horrible, wtf is that?
    Director: I hear ya, we will make changes to make him look as original as he is.
    Director makes him look like the original Sonic how he looks in the videogames.
    Fabs: omg he does not look real he looks so cartoonish.
    I agree with him eventually people will find something to complain about just wait for it....
    But a Director that opened up to criticism that is just incredible props to that Director !!

    I still feel like it could be a marketing scheme like they made a version of what sonic might look like in reality and did a fairly sub par trailer and have like a backup with a better design and trailer to release down the line to please fans and make them emotionally attached to it before it's even released because they felt they made a difference, making for bigger sales. To redo the character model and reanimated and render would take a long time and a lot of money, would a studio who clearly didn't care much about the character in the first place really do this?

    Honestly, I don't think the director or anyone else involved deserves any credit for this decision because 1. The backlash was so massive that they would look like a gang of morons for not changing it and 2. How the hell did they not notice how horrendously bad it looked while making the damn thing? Why did it take the implosion of the internet movie discussion world thingy for them to go "Okay, we'll make him look not shitty." Lastly, it doesn't matter how Sonic looks anyways. Almost everything is pointing towards this movie being a train wreck, only the trains have nuclear reactors on board. The design will do little to change that, it will just make it a tad less vomit inducing.

    Remember when everyone hated the Joker pics from the Dark Knight but Nolan knew what he was doing even though it was a bit different?

    Sad that the vision of the creator means nothing anymore if it changes something and offers something new...The internet complainers must be satisfied.

    I think the producers of the sonic movie need to see the new Detective Pokemon movie to see how a life action cartoon should be made.

    Wish we could say the same for other franchise such as transformers and ghostbusters if they wanted to listen to the fans more for more accurate changes. 😁

      The Sonic design is a little weird though I wouldn’t say he was ‘ruined’.

  • Maxime Deslauriers

    It looks horrible. Not just the sonic model. But the whole trailer. Nothing was funny. The plot looked like something out of sonic X (the bad episodes). There is no passion in this movie.

    I'm glad they're changing it but the movie will still be awful. We already saw how bland the setting looks and how phoned in Jim Carrey is. He didn't try and make a character, he just talked weird

  • xSmittyxCorex

    That’s unexpected and cool and all, but honestly, I’m probably still not gonna see it. I haven’t trusted anything Sonic to be good for years and years now, nobody asked for this, and it was made by the same people who thought the design was fine in the first place. Design was never the only issue, it gon be baaaaadd...

    If the director cared about the material he wouldn't have fucked up in the first place.If he had a creative vision he wouldn't change anything.Either way he sucks.

    The worst thing that can happen is they change it and it looks great and the movie turns out to be a success. The internet will use this as an example that they know better than the filmmakers and you'll see more of this in the future.

    The strange part is how the director fucked it up THAT BAD to begin with, and now he's willing to change it instantly? Seems a bit suss to me, probably just clever marketing. Shitty Sonic definitely got everyone talking about the new movie, and now everyone is waiting to see what he will end up looking like; the redemption arc. Bad publicity usually has the most reach unfortunately.

    Edit: How many TVclip videos have you seen about Anthem? A game that is universally disliked. And how many have you seen about Sekiro? A 9-10/10 game with awesome combat mechanics. Probably 1/10th the amount of Anthem, and that's being generous to Sekiro. Making a shit product = free advertising on YT and the internet in general. The difference is that EA isn't willing to fix their product so they don't make any good use of the free publicity, but I bet a lot of people still bought it knowing it was shit, just because they hear about it so much.

    Do you guys think it's some kind of marketing strategy? I mean, everyone on the internet was talking about the trailer and Sonic. Now there's a lot of people interested on how Sonic is going to look. 🤔🤔

    Nah, we are all being used for focus testing and marketing. We are a bunch of saps being manipulated. They knew exactly what they were doing, like generating some buzz for their stupid product. I’m still staying away from that movie, now more than ever.

    I think they were going in a good direction with the realistic look but it should still be stylized. Larger eyes, feet and hands and longer legs. I could live without the gloves, but I’d appreciate them

    idk..i think a movie adaptation should be able to be diff. its ot the video game. cant it have a diff design? maybe a better one. but i dont think it should have to look just like the games.

  • Sliider
    Sliider 6 months ago +1

    so theres this theory floating around the net now that this was all an eloborate marketing scheme to impress and garner worship from fans. it claims the films post-production crew created two versions of sonic right from the start. they released the first trailer featuring the unsightly derranged version of sonic the manhog, knowing it would get bashed. and they have the game-accurate sonic already rendered and ready to step in. thus creating the illusion that sega and the film studio care about fan feedback and take it seriously, ofcourse making everyone thrilled and gaining a ton of PR respect. so yeah, thats a theory now.

      Sliider The movie only cost 90 million. I dont think Sonic is in too many scenes. I doubt they will delay the release.

    • Sliider
      Sliider 6 months ago

      yea i didnt mean to imply i believed this, just thought it amusing and wanted to throw it out there. i might even expect the release date to be pushed back considering the work to be done. maybe not.

    • ii ii

      Sliider Marketing costs millions. A studio wouldnt throw money away to purposely generate a negative opinion. The only answer is they are afraid of the negative reaction to the trailer because movies in the past with negative trailer reactions have bombed.

    You're telling me hes going to change the eyes to his old sinister one? Because all of his reactions and even his voice will be out of place with his original eyes just being imported. I mean I like that hes listening and respecting that he will try but it's not gonna be easy to retroactively change his looks throughout all scenes.
