Can someone please tell me what Ian Flynn thinks of this please? I don’t have good YouTube and I would like to see his intake on the movie.
Here’s his full article: https://www.escapistmagazine.com/v2/2018/12/14/leave-those-legs-alone-there-is-no-true-sonic/
I find it pretty annoying when people take the “mature” route to defend content or creative directions that are obviously mediocre or outright harmful to a franchise. Yes, it’s just as bad when people can’t put things into perspective, but defending -anything- and -everything- really isn’t as wise as some people think it is.
These people have made the worst of all possible creative decisions at every stage of design so far. People make so much out of how split the Sonic fanbase is, but honestly, good design isn’t that big of a mystery. Every “reinvention” of this character, for all of the defensive dismissals and explanations, has damaged it, despite the small niches that get attached to them. The original iteration was literally more popular than Mickey Mouse at one time — with every short-sighted reimagining, the character falls further from that success.
If I were Sega, I’d swallow the money and cancel it.
