Gonna put in my thoughts on this thing about the designs not being final.

I could believe that the CGI renders are unfinished no problem. The style guide stuff is far more iffy territory. On one hand, it's unprofessional for a company to give an unfinished design to companies looking to produce merchandise to promote the film. This would mean this unfinalized look for Sonic would be what's plastered on toy shelves and whatnot... which is not a very good way to properly represent your film.

On the other hand... this is something Paramount has done before, giving companies a design for a character that isn't final, but close enough. I'm referring to the first Bayformers and even most recently, Bumblebee.

When Transformers 2007 was coming out, Megatron had a different face compared to how he was in the finished film.

latest?cb=20140405141216

200px-Movie_Megatron_olduglyface.jpg

These were some of the revisions made during production before fan backlash caused the face to be modified for the final film.

transformers_poster_2007_04.jpg

Although the original art can be seen on some merchandise back in 2007, which means Paramount's Style Guide for the original Transformers movie included these Megatron renders.

r_megatronleader111.jpg

Even the toys arguably contained aspects of Megatron's look before the face was set in stone.

The same happened with last year's Bumblebee.

l-226637.jpg

813TqAZMVNL._SX425_.jpg

Merch and toys had this design where Bumblebee's doors stuck out like wings, kinda like how it was in the Bay films. But if you saw the real movie...

bumblebee-e1543864255280.jpg

The wings are folded in. Which means Paramount still had this habit of distributing incomplete designs to other marketing firms and the guys in charge of making merchandise. So the same could happen with Sonic. We could get a tweaked look for the blue blur that not even the style guide can portray.

Only time will tell.

The style guide shouldn't be taken as gospel for how the render will look - the style guide is still portrayed as if you were drawing a realistic character as an animated entity, allowing it to be more expressive, coloured, and dynamic with it's poses and design. While still looking uncanny, the reason the style guide looks the least worst out of all the renders we have is because it's animated and shows off the details of the design better than the actual renders, and doesn't given Sonic such a completely dead-eyed look to him.

Well it may be unprofessional. Now CGE has previously worked in the industry and can confirm that this kind of thing usually happens.

But like I've been saying. If the design isn't final, then we'll likely see it in the next couple weeks.

Of course. Doesn't make it any less unprofessional but it has to happen when you wanna get a product out ASAP, I guess. Just a trend I noticed with these Paramount movies and probably more movies in general.

Just saying why the claims of it being not the final design could and potentially couldn't be true.

Unless the movie licensed merch and adds uses a different design than the movie itself on purpose, which would make no sense, it is final. Unless that's an old version of the style guide...  If the movie uses an updated version of the model seen in the guide, the poor designer will have to change and update everything xD I hate when this happens on my work :X

I was REALLY wondering if that leaked Kids Choice Awards picture was an old and outdated version of Sonic's look, and I'm glad to see that such was indeed the case.

Honestly, I hope he ends up looking like the branding guide version in the final product. That one was my favorite of all of the 'leaks'.

From what I know, usually when people say that the CGI isn't in a finished state, they're referring to more subtle details.  Coloring, texturing, lighting, etc.  Maybe some minor anatomical details will be worked out, too, but generally speaking, it's almost certainly going to look pretty much like what we've seen already.

It's actually right there in the leaked pictures that there's been some changes made to the design over time. Look at Sonic's shoes in the leaked full body pic compared to the "selfie" bridge poster that's been popping up in cinemas. Notice the white soles on the shoes aren't present on the leaked model. Not exactly a revolutionary tweak but a tweak none the less.

Unless the powers that be were shaken beyond belief at the backlash to the initial poster reveal, I'm pretty much certain that any changes that have gone on won't affect his overall silhouette so he'll still have the weird proportions and no gloves. Given that the style guide is still using sketches rather than the cg model it would suggest it was made fairly early on, though I expect it was after these sketches were greenlit for final production.

Hey, I've got a short list, It'd be cool if you could answer them;

1 - How do Sonic and Tom meet? Is it a case where they immediately become friends or do they hate each other at first and slowly grow a bond?

2 - Around how long was the movie?

3 - Were there actual stakes or did it not take itself seriously at all?

Thanks.

Tom has racoon problems in his trash. When he sees sonic face to face for the first time. He tranqs him and puts him in a cage. Robotnik shows up and they escape and Tom begrudgingly agrees to help. His main concern is moving to SF to prove to himself that he can handle real cop crime and not Montana small world problems. You see it early on for character dev. 2. Movie was like 90 or so. Didn't start and stop on time due to QA after. Didn't have phone either to really see. 3. There were stakes and it balanced between a fam adventure and action movie

I'll get the email but I'll need to scrub any Metadata as there was an NDA and I'm not trying to get him or myself in trouble. It doesn't mention anything however to the film. Just states PG film from Hollywood. As further partial proof, the reason you see sonic on the Golden Gate Bridge is because his rings end up there after meeting Tom(Donut Lord) and drops the bag after activating the tele portal power

TBH, the positive review is nice but I am just wondering why you would risk this all to say this being under an NDA. I am sure they have a list of all who attended as well as you now logged into Reddit which most likely has your IP logged. There has also been many sites rating VPNs and how they as well log your IPs. I would say that your risking more then you know you are.

Does the human stuff end up overtaking the sonic stuff? Live action adaptations like this always have difficulty in balancing the new human characters with the characters that people actually wanna see, and so they always end up feeling like the characters just walked onto the set of completely different film.

Basically, does this film ever feel something like a movie starring humans with Sonic's arc and story being treated as a mere subplot? Or is this, without a doubt, Sonic's story through and through, where the human's subplots don't ever feel like they overtake it?

*So do you reckon the cinematography is looking interesting (ie. not your standard Bayhem shakey cam)?

And wow I wish more movies would release versions like this. Regardless of the movie's quality it would be really interesting to watch and see the development early stages of the movie to get an idea how the movie is put together.

There's a scene where sonic gets out of Tom's Tacoma and goes to close the door.

how does sonic look in motion? Does he look anything at all like the Kids Choice Awards leak? (I hope not)

level 2

Animation was not done so it was very basic design. He looked like the minecraft version of sonic in terms of res lol

Huh, that’s odd. Hopefully they will show that in some sort of DVD with Bonus Features.

Went as a guest to a screening. All we we informed of was that it was PG from a Hollywood studio. I figured it was going to be something coming out sooner. Pleasantly surprised though.

No worries. I'm trying to not spoil and answer spoiler esque questions. Just want to assure other fans that they did alright with this.

So which design leak is closest to the one in the movie? The one where Sonic is running on a road with a closeup, or is it the tall one that got leaked a day earlier with white fur instead of gloves?

Also: How do you think fans will receive the movie? Negative/Positive?

level 2

[deleted]

5 points · 21 hours ago

Closest is the one this week mixed with the poster stuff. That running one seems early on

Can you tell me one thing, since I assume your saying none of the leaks are the final design...

Is the final design nice? You can give a yes or no answer, I don't need details.

just tell me if it looks better than all the previous leaks or not? Does it look a lot more like sonic?

level 4

[deleted]

3 points · 3 hours ago

So with what was asked and the unfinished cgi. I can only assume they make some changes to his look. From the small scene I saw with "final" is he is more of less the ones that were leaked earlier this week. No clue on the Nikes as his shoes were just the generic red ones.

Without trying to give spoilers, how is the dialogue like in this film? And did the film meet your expectations?

level 2

[deleted]

5 points · 23 hours ago

I had no clue or idea on how it would turn out. Totally met and outdid what I thought. Dialogue starts cheesy but gets better. Acting seemed off initially but fixes later on

Only had one post credit scene currently but it was one of those right after the credits start. Lights came on after and we provided feedback. Sets up for more movies in a nice way

What was in the post credits scene?

Robotnik is defeated and ends up on a foreign planet that Sonic was supposed to escape to in the event of being found on earth. He is now hefty and rocking the full blown stache

is it assumed then that robotnik would return to a second part?

Yeah he will be full blown doc. This first film is the origins

Will this become a sequence, then? I'm actually getting enthusiastic here

level 8

He gradually gets crazier and more obsessed with sonic as the film goes. Nice conversion from.the ego doc to full eggman

level 9

Now that's full SatAMic from him. Kudos to Paramount, I believe.

Does Sonic actually start off as a slow hedgehog? How does Sonic get trained to be stronger and faster? Also, can you tell me anything about those "special rings" in the film? Do they "replace" the Chaos Emeralds?

level 2

[deleted]

8 points · 1 day ago

Rings are how sonic got to earth. He can throw one and imagine a place and it will take him. He is fast from his first steps.

level 3

andzlatin

3 points · 1 day ago

But he won't be able to do everything in the beginning, will he? He will get more powerful as time goes on, isn't that what we were told by interviews? And that probably has to do with his young age. Also - how accurate is the 3D render from the recent leak?

level 4

[deleted]

7 points · 1 day ago

No. He definitely has to learn his abilities and powers. Render is close from the scene shown showing planned look. Anainaion wasn’t done so it was a low animation rendering mostly and blue doll in some scenes. Have a feeling design changes slightly from feedback given and asked. Pretty damn close from what I can recall

Another question - how's the music like? Is it finished? And most importantly - did it have motives or melodies from the Sonic games?

level 6

[deleted]

Music wasn’t done so mostly placeholder stuff.

What look has Jim Carrey?

level 2

[deleted]

7 points · 1 day ago

He doesn’t rock the signature look until tail end of movie. Has the typical long coat and all dark evil scientist look. Short mustache as well initially

level 3

VFacure

3 points · 17 hours ago

Some cool Archie vibes coming from here, specially concerning Robotnik's early story as an Overlander.

Having Robotnik as a sleeping coup'er is a great concept.

Does Ben sound like Ben, or is he putting on a voice to try and sound more like Sonic? I think I'm probably more excited for his performance than I am for Jim's, though I'd be lying if I said I wasn't very curious.

level 2

[deleted]

7 points · 1 day ago

Slight acted voice but you can def still hear Ben overall. He nails the role and surprisingly so does majority of the cast.

Lots of humor and fun for all ages. Kids ate the comedy up. Sonic dances right after an short battle and kids about died laughing in the theater.

It’s a good balance between giving the old fans something but introducing him to kids. I went in not knowing it was gonna be screened or any expectations. Cheesy but enjoyed it from start to finish. Jim Carrey kills the role.

Would you mind giving a short summary of the story?

level 4

[deleted]

sonic escapes his birth planet and grows up on earth. Ends up alone after some time and grew Up staying hidden. Loneliness gets to him which leads to govt bringing in robotnik to find out the energy disturbance caused by sonic. Hijinks ensue and a good story is told. Tom and sonic become besties

Hey that's a really decent introduction for Robotnik.

What a relief

level 6

[deleted]

6 points · 17 hours ago

Yeah he's just a psycho super smart doc that works for the gov initially. They give him the power and he goes full Eggman lol. He's super obnoxiously smart too. Makes tons of comments in the film about how superior his brain is lol. Really fun role for Jim Carrey.

level 7

VFacure

1 point · 17 hours ago

A Darker but Fun Jim Carrey really is the perfect way to mix up dumb and funny Boom Eggman with Early-Archie Robotnik. Oh yes we're doing this.

Animation wasn’t done completely but it was good from what was done so far. Good balance from story to action.

level 7

Timemaster4732

So it sounds like this movie isn't bad from what you say.

Is this film done in the style of a typical superhero film, and would this be a pg-13 film or a pg rated film? Is the recent leaked images of Sonic how he looks in the movie? Are there any other Sonic characters, or at least references/allusions to them?

Is G.U.N in the movie?

level 8

[deleted]

5 points · 22 hours ago

It’s def leaning on PG for sure. Recent leaks are def closest to what was shown as current final sonic design. Have a feeling it changes slightly. Don’t want to hint at characters cause it wasn’t finished. Nothing I saw but who knows with such a large gap between release date.

I asked him some questions. Here are the questions that I asked. Here are his responses.:

Spoiler

Just curious. Were there tons of car chases and product placement?

Just one major car chase scene/battle. Sonic floss dances after and kids ate that shit up. only real product placement is olive garden there's a few references to it. Tom also gets a gift card at the end from the gov dude who initially brings robotnik into the picture

Ok, thanks. Also, I have another question, you know the girl played by Tika Sumpter. What was her official name, and did she do in the movie?

she plays Tom's wife. She's a vet and since she was known to sonic when he watched them from afar as being kind to animals. He felt he could trust them both. Name was Annie

Ok. Did they used a car to drive to San Francisco?

yes. They used Tom's Tacoma. It gets the top chopped off by docs drones and leads to the conflict between sonic and Tom

I assume the truck that Tom owned he is talking about is this.:

Spoiler

Still not going to believe this, unless if there is proof.

I was talking to my friend, and he made the point that this is basically a retelling of Superman's story in Sonic form, while Eggman is literally a carbon copy of Lex Luthor from Dawn of Justice: Batman v. Superman.  Also, there's no way there'd be that much schilling for Olive Garden lol.   That's like what Jacksepticeye does as a joke for Coke Zero to the point they've acknowledged it in a tweet, or that episode of American Dad where they constantly praise Burger King for the joke, too.  They wouldn't do that much for a single company, I mean eating there, talking about it and receiving a gift card?  This might as well be a Olive Garden ad lol.

(sorry, I don't know how to hide content on mobile).

I'll just say, that part about Sonic, Tom, Annie, and animals makes sense to me. Remember those pictures where Tom is helping ducks cross the street? I'm not gonna lie, I'm sort of believing this leak a little. There's a lot of obscure things here that make sense considering how they correlate with the set images, the rumors about Robotnick's design, Sonic's design not being entirely accurate to the leaked images (which just recently got confirmed today that those leaks are just prototypes) that those and now this. I highly doubt he just did heavy research on all of this. I think he's either telling the truth, or made up something surprisingly coincidental relating to what we've seen.

 

It sounds like it's going to be similar to Bumblebee, while also trying to be its own thing. Good to hear that it isn't relying on memes and trends for humor except for that dance.

I'm kind of surprised that no one commented on the use of rings in this leak are pretty much the Warp Rings from Archie. While rings and extradimensional portals were always a thing in the classics, specifically using rings as a go anywhere device and in combat for combat purposes sounds way to much like Finitevus to me and I'm suddenly seeing Penders talking about legal action and creators' rights. Just for that alone I hope this leak is fake.
