  1. The design could literally be worse. I mean, remember the time when we got a glimpse of the first Sonic poster. Even I had to force myself to like it. To be honest I like it. I cant wait to see the other characters! And also, did you know Chris Pratt is playing in the Sonic movie? I didn’t know till now.

    It’s not that bad, it’s a hedgehog after all. In my opinion it looks good.

    Having been a Sonic fan since i was a little kid i find this an insult to te original design…..Its abosolutly an abomonation….HORRIBLE! Why they couldnt keep the original design i have no idea ,,,,or better yet, why not a Sonic movie set in HIS universe, make it all CGI not live action……THIS IS GOING TO BE A DISASTER!!!!

  4. Or you could just watch the movie instead of saying this is going to be a disaster now. Thats straight up…

    Some people will defend practically anything as long as it involves Sonic. Others don’t like (or at least don’t understand) any stylistic change from what they feel is the “peak” of the franchise. And a lot of people are simply falling into the psychological trap of mixing the fact that it “could be worse” with it being “good” or “acceptable” (not directed at Kevin-N above. I’m not trying to say that people can’t genuinely like the design for sound reasons, it’s just that when something has been mocked, parodied, and distorted it might make the real thing seem better than it is to some people).

    At the end of the day, quality is subjective, but necessity and results aren’t. Creativity is one thing, but Sonic has been subject to unnecessary compromises for a long time (a fear that established elements that have always gotten good results suddenly won’t one year, five years, ten years down the line… or in this case won’t work in film), and the results have been unpopular. It doesn’t matter if it’s inoffensive, or if it’s “not that bad”, the end results are worse than they need to be and it’s going to hurt the product at the box office and the image of the franchise going forward.

    This thing looks like what would happen if a parody of Sonic appeared in a modern Chipmunks movie. Close enough you can tell what it’s supposed to be, different enough that you couldn’t sue.
