Sonic the Hedgehog live-action movie character design leaks!

Thanks to an overly enthusiastic staffer at Hagami/Carroll Inc. who wanted to update the company’s online portfolio, we now have an advance look at how Sonic will appear in the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog movie from Paramount. The company had been tasked with creating a brand guidelines book and package design for the movie, as the images show off brand elements including graphics, character poses and the brand personality. The elephant in the room of course is the newly designed cinematic take on Sonic in all its glory. Fan reaction has been mixed, with comments ranging from “better than I expected” to “okay” to gifs of people jumping from windows.

Personally, I think it looks awful and cannot wait for the SEGA News Bits video where George and I pick apart the blue little guy. In the meantime, check out the gallery of images below and share your own opinions in the comments.
