Sonic Live Action Movie "Now entering Silent Green Hill"

Recommended Posts

So going by these posts and translations, the teaser was positively received. Especially reception on Sonic's design is positive. But the part involving him breaking the sound barrier just sounds good and I can't wait to see it.

Now what's odd to me in the original article it says the film will release on November 14th, 2019. Does that mean it'll release in Brazil on November 14th or is that the new worldwide release date?

No reason to expect anything other than base Sonic + Realistic fur texture.

It will be interesting to see how much fur they give the guy (I think D. Pikachu has fur that is too long for the sake of added detail) but should still be the Sonic we all know and love. All I know is his shoes better be absurdly shiny.

Also, I hope they give his sneakers a more realistic bottom sole design, like Archie did. Never liked the basic horizontal sweep Sega just throws on their Sonic model.

Well whichever one they decide to use would be fine with me. Now I think 2006's version was a good one and more likely to be used.

At least the 06 model attempted something more... realistic (lol I guess it does fit with what that game was trying to do).

 

Considering Sega once partnered up with SOAP - It wouldn't actually surprise me too much to see a Nike swoosh under there now.

Peter Parker is a realistically proportioned human being, the difference really isn't that hard to see. 

Going by the positive reaction, maybe Sonic looks something like this:

I'm guessing he's mostly only realistically textured like the Pokemon instead of any radical change.

I can live with that, though i imagine it would be a bit more detailed and less like a stuffed toy :D

It's definitely going to be more detailed than that. That's just the game design but flocked. They will probably add detail on his eyes, mouth (real mouth) and the fur will look more realistic than that. Like real animal fur.

 

I also think it may be Classic Sonic. As somebody said they thought Sonic looked as cute as Detective Pikachu and they want a plushie of him. Modern Sonic doesn't spring to mind as cute imo. I wouldn't be surprised because they have been teasing Classic Sonic for awhile on set.

I just hope they do the fur properly and he doesn't end up looking like the Werehog with his "quills" being pretty much strange furry appendages on the back of his head instead of, you know, a collection of quills. That aside, he's already sounding too fluffy, which was my primary complaint about Detective Pikachu; I expected a fur texture more akin to a short hair mammal, not a grizzly bear. He's as fluffy as the Chow Chow my dad had when I was younger. It's crazy. I really, really hope this Sonic model doesn't overdo it on the fluff and that somebody somewhere in the production staff realized there is a major difference between quills and fur. Well, we'll probably be finding out sooner than later though.

I don't really think it'll be Classic. Because in one of the descriptions for the teaser included him breaking the sound barrier (implying a Sonic Boom), which I don't think I've seen Classic Sonic do that in any of the Classic Sonic games. So it's just far more likely to be Modern Sonic.

Or it could be another model such as the Modern Sonic/ classic Sonic hybrid designs:

Hopefully we will get a teaser soon...

Agreed, and not just a tease in a Brazillian con where no one took videos or photos apparently.

 

To paraphrase Activision/Blizzard at the botched Diablo immortal reveal:

Did they not have phones?

But according to him he has. That's why his current project is reliant on Sonic comics he did like a decade ago and he keeps commenting on the state of Sega and the IDW comics (Y'know just to make sure those bridges are good and burnt so he doesn't have a safety net).

Anyway I'm kinda surprised a picture of the teaser hasn't leaked yet TBH.

Sadly i feel we can expect Ken to call every piece of promotion the wrong decision probably followed by a if I was doing it it would be done this way and ending with how his hypothetical movie would have made more than whatever amount this ends up making.

Never heard of or seen those designs. Are those official? Because it looks better than Classic, but not as good as Moderns.

I think someone would've mentioned it if it were Classic Sonic instead of just the standard one.

There was a song called "Sonic Boom"

More detailed, but the general idea of it. The only examples I think of for a cartoony but realistic (in the vein of Detective Pikachu) Sonic are that, and.. this:

Classic sonic has done that in various media though, even though not his games. Also, modern hasnt really broken the sound barrier in any of his videogames. The sound barrier at sea level is 760 mph. Definitely not.

I could also see classic sonic as the choice based on things we've heard, although I expected going in that we'd get Modern.

That design doesnt look as good as either classic or modern. Too stubby with an oversized head.

We really wouldn't have. Because the people at the event were not hardcore Sonic fans. They likely can't even tell the difference between Modern and Classic as the differences are not that drastic. The cute Sonic comment somebody made has me convinced though, that it will be classic. Everything seems to add up to the design as well as the movie itself taking more inspiration from the Genisis era.

That doesnt really matter, though. Because it's a new Interpretation of Sonic in a new continuity so that means new ground rules are being set for this universe. (And Classic Sonic did break the sound barrier in Sonic Underground but that's besides the point. )

That's what a sonic boom is, is breaking the sound barrier. Which means faster than the speed of sound. The Modern 3D boost games show this the best.

Sonic's design has always shifted and evolved between games; his sprite in Sonic 3 is considerably closer to what we now call "Modern Sonic" than his sprite in the previous classic games.  The division between "Classic" and "Modern" designs is an anachronistic and retrospective classification which bears no resemblance to the actual continuity of Sonic's designs over the years.  There is no Classic and Modern Sonic; and there certainly won't be in the movie.
