    Apart from Rise of Lyric, Sonic has been the sole playable character in all of his mainline 3D games since 2007. That's ridiculous.
    Sega is pandering to people who don't even like Sonic in the first place by excluding the vast library of side characters, thanks to that 'Sonic's shitty friends' meme, (which was coined by people who have no interest in purchasing a Sonic game either way, not the fans who are actually purchasing the product and part of the fanbase.)
    Sega also caters to the 'Sonic was only good in 2D' crowd by needlessly shoehorning classic Sonic into Forces. He really didn't need to be there.
    Sega should stop trying to win over casual gamers who think Sonic is a joke now and was only good in the 90's. Ian Flynn is currently doing a fantastic job with IDW in my opinion, cramming in subtle references, flashbacks, winks, nods, and a wide cast of characters. Sega should be giving Sonic that same kind of love.

    This is true. I think we were all expecting November. 3 months from release and the original release date of the movie. It's a pretty safe bet!
    Potentially waiting until late November is still an agonizingly long time for me though lol. (Still, at least I have Shenmue III to distract me soon...).

    A trailer for a new SpongeBob movie will be released this week by Paramount, confirming that we will not be getting a trailer for Sonic this week like so many thought.

    On the bright side with trailer 2 being this late it'll be a small gap to final trailer unless there is a delay.

    I've been around this franchise since the beginning. 1995-1998 were the worst years for Sonic, period. 
    Both Sonic cartoons had been cancelled and Ken Penders was running amok with the Archie comic. 
    The 3D era had come and while Mario had a big hit with the N64, Sega had abandoned Sonic for the Saturn, with the exceptions of some rereleases (Sonic Jam) a clunky racer that looked terrible even by 1997 standards (Sonic R) and a port of 3D Blast.
    Underground came and mostly flew under the radar since Sonic's popularity was at an all-time low.
    Sonic Adventure breathed new life into the franchise in 1999 and while there were a few misteps, (Shuffle, 06, Shadow) Sonic still was going strong, thanks in part to Sonic X's popularity and the fact that Sonic was now able to reach wider audiences on the GBA, DS and GameCube.
    The second 'dark age' for Sonic in my opinion, came in 2010 with Sonic Colors. and the juvenile, goofy writing by Pontac and Graff (and the annoying new characters OrBot and CuBot) Lost World continued to go in an infantile route, pandering to younger audiences. I enjoyed the Boom TV show, though. 
    Sonic's.. In an okay spot right now. I like the IDW comics and I'm looking forward to the movie. More merchandising shows Sonic is gaining popularity again. Haven't played Mania or Forces.

    Liking a tweet doesn't really mean anything though. Paramount handles all of the marketing materials for the film. Marza just does the animation. Even Ben Schwartz has said he doesn't know when the trailer is coming.
    But I do think we will probably get it next week anyway, given it's Sonic's original release date.

    Sonic being an alien isn't really my preferred interpetation of Sonic, (i'd rather him just live on Earth like in Sonic Adventure, but whatever) but it's not unfaithful to the source material to say Sonic is an alien. Sonic X had Sonic come from another world, and according to Iizuka, there is two worlds in Sonic canon. A human one and a Sonic one, so Sonic being an alien in this movie isn't technically wrong.

    Myst reacted to StriCNYN3 in What is it about Sonic that makes so many wish to disconnect him from non-Eggman humans?   
    See, I never had a problem with Sonic and his animal friends coexisting with actual humans. It's when the humans get photo realistic where I have to give a hard no to. But when people become so adverse to any human being in a Sonic game no matter how they're designed because "They were never there to begin with" is when I scratch my head.
    You see, in the classics, Eggman is the one that's the crazy human villain that's going out of his way to these weird uncharted magical islands coming to mess SONIC and friends shit up. As for the rest of the humans? Well, they're clearly sane and minding their own business in their side of the world where the city takes place.
    Sonic's an animal, so of course the starting scene in the games are typically going to be set in a ever-green like environment with no humans around (They're clearly up-right standing individuals if Eggman is anything to go by, so why would they ever be seen in a place like Green Hill Zone, which takes place on a drifting island, to begin with when they can be in the city with technology?). Did that stop places like Star light Zone, Spring Yard Zone, Casino Night Zone, etc and etc from existing? No. Why? Because there's more to the world these characters are set on than just the typical animal like setting. Sonic in Sonic 1 is literally chasing down Eggman from an animal like environment to several thriving man-made environments on that same planet from beginning to end of that game. You can see it all for yourself as you're playing if you pay attention to the backgrounds..... and Eggman, being human himself and all, clearly had to come from 2 somebodies that aren't animals... But for some reason, these ideas and the story telling through game play just didn't click with some people.
    I've seen some people act like Sonic Adventure was this weird turning point dealing with that, when really, I'd say this was what the series had envisioned itself all along but finally had a gaming console with the necessary power to flesh out ideas like that. 
    You see, Sonic in Sonic Adventure, being the speedy drifter that he is, came to Eggman's / human territory aka Station Square this time around instead of the reverse where Eggman went to the magical islands for the emeralds before SA. It just so happened that Chaos did his shenanigans at the city side of the world where Sonic just so happened to be at that point in time... So yea. The humans were always there. It just wasn't necessary to show them off in the Genesis era because it just wasn't needed then from a game play standpoint, but the idea of them existing was always there. Hell, in SA, they still go out of their to show that the only type of people going to these forest-y Sonic like environments are archaeologist and adventurers. Mystic Ruins is a tourist attraction and isn't popping with human activity like Station Square is and takes a literal train ride far away from the city to get there which pretty much falls in line with the classics. Hell, Even Sonic Adventure 2 shows that Green Hill Zone still takes place on a far away drifting island with no people around.
    So I never really understood why humans getting involved is such an outlandish idea. I kinda want to say it's because those same people who grew up with the 90's tv shows where humans weren't really prevalent other than Eggman, so they stuck with that idea until they saw the Dreamcast games and up come up and just went "Uhhh... wtf is this 2 legged suit and tied individual?". But that's just my hunch tho.

    My guess is Puma and the studio didn't want the design to be interrupted. They wanted them to be recognizable Pumas. 
     
    I agree, shoe brand deals are an obvious brand tie in for a Sonic movie and I agree that they could have went for a more recognizable design but I understand the logic behind what we got. And if Mystic is right, Sonic would have went to a more recognizable shoe in the climax. I really like that idea too becuz it shows the writer were concerned with character development on Sonic. Something we haven't gotten on him since the Adventure series (+ Unleashed)

    Myst got a reaction from Miragnarok in Sonic Live Action Movie Thread (Read OP for topic rules) "Trailer 2 on Page 482)   
    According to the two test screeners on Reddit (one confirmed legit as he predicted things we later saw in the trailer like rings being portals and Robotnik wearing all black)
    Sonic was ALWAYS supposed to get game accurate shoes (along with gloves) later on in the movie. Regardless of the redesign we were always going to get Sonic in his video game shoes and gloves. The Redditor mentioned it was part of Sonic's character development. (Notice the pile of taped-up shoes in the trailer? Sonic probably goes through several pairs)
    This actually concerns me: did they cut scenes from the movie to accomodate the redesign?

    Two seasons, a toyline, three games and a comic. All in all, I'd say it had a good run.
    Thanks Sega, Archie, Tomy & Ouido!

    Myst reacted to Domino in What is it about Sonic that makes so many wish to disconnect him from non-Eggman humans?   
    One detail I have never seen anyone bring up is how out of all major western Sonic media from the 90s, AoStH was the one with the greatest number of human and human-looking characters.
    As far as major characters go, we have Von Schlemmer, Lucas, Lucinda, Momma Robotnik, Katella, and Doctor Quark. Digging deeper gets us Mobius' World Leaders, Miss Saccharine, Snow Height, Five of the Seven Squatty Guys, Cinderella, Fairy Godfather, the Wise Old Hermit, Blackbeard, and Robotnik's various ancestors.
     
    Sonic Christmas Blast, effectively a posthumous AoStH special, seems to have even fewer reservations about showing humans than the series proper. Santa Claus is the most obvious example, but the unnamed boy who tells Sonic about Robotnik Claus also comes to mind, given his screentime.

    The scene with Robotnik posing as a mall Santa has a crowd seemingly populated entirely by human children.


    I understand that SatAM and Archie had more elaborate worldbuilding that probably left a bigger impact on the minds of most fans, but for a fanbase that loves deep cuts as much as this one, I'm surprised AoStH's humans get ignored or downplayed whenever the topic of human Sonic characters comes up.
