Regardless of how bad the movie is, i’ll Probably end my review of the film with “But hey, at least there aren’t any Wisps!” 

They're about to be the one element from the games besides Sonic, Eggman, and the rings.

I looked at the Reddit thread and it seems it may have come from 4chan. So, yeah, take that with a mountain of salt.

Sonic design matches that pic from last year of Sonic in the director's chair, so I'm gonna say this is probably legit.

I wouldn’t be surprised if the movie ended up getting 2, or 3, or more sequels like Resident Evil. That movie got like 5 more sequels. I don’t think they making anymore sequels after the sixth one which was the last one of the film series. They going to reboot the film series after that.

I'd rather they rebooted after this movie instead of making sequels.

Well, maybe, if the movie flopped, then they could make an animated reboot. So, I think we will wait and see how the movie perform in the box office when it’s come out on November.

If this movie flops, no movie studio in their right mind will want to touch this property ever again. Not after the vocal temper tantrum the online fanbase has had for the past 7 months. The movie is an absolute joke to a majority of people right now, has a ton of dislikes on YouTube, and has been getting roasted by the mainstream media.

I'm excited to see it myself, I'll be there opening night with a Sonic t-shirt on, as excited as a kid on Christmas morning.. But if this movie tanks, Sonic will never be on the big screen again, save for a cameo in another Wreck-It Ralph movie.

I wonder what other songs we will get on the soundtrack. 'Gangsta's Paradise' is already confirmed to be on it. (No, it's not just in the trailer, Paramount confirms it will be on the soundtrack)

What other songs do you guys want to see?

This may sound silly, but what about Coldplay's 'Speed of Sound'? I could picture that playing in the background towards the end of the film, in a montage where Sonic is really experiencing the world for the first time, (having been living alone in the woods for years.) The Grand Canyon, sandy beaches, cities at night, the carnival, all while bonding with his new friend, Tom.

But if the movie does well, we're pretty much guaranteed to get a sequel instead of an animated reboot!

I guarantee the movie will do well. It will get hounded by your typical youtubers that will chime in make sure you sub to my pateron link at the end but regardless kids will eat it up. Not all kids mind you but in the example above the TMNT live action movie was jumped on for making them look so off from what many of use late 80s and very early 90s kids liked. But kids loved the film. i see Sonic doing the same honestly. Then we will get a bigger sequel. I am sure the team has rough drafts of other designs.  I mean i see what they were going for. any REAL hedgehog looks like sonic does in the trailer. Except for those evil teeth. their faces normally look like that just paint them blue. Still paramount was looking to sell more toys to a general audience i suppose than gamers that grew up on sonic.

Like Smurfs, we could get a few sequels and then an animated reboot. Is that okay?

Pretty pointless qusetion, since it's not like I have a say.

I believe that's what they're banking on. The best we can hope for years down the line is that somebody we'll make a "Sorry the last few sucked" kind of movie, in Dragon Ball's case, it was everything after Evolution, for Transformers it was Bumblebee, etc etc etc.

Although, as the aforementioned Smurfs proved, this is not an automatic saving grace.

I don't know guys...

Bay Turtles was made by Paramount. See any apology film or animated reboot anywhere? Doesn't appear to be their way of thinking. Bumblebee was the only time they did anything.

Paramount owns Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles part and parcel, so they didn’t have to worry about losing the license to the series.

I wonder what kind of deal did they sign with SEGA. Only for 1 movie or for multiple ones. Since we already know they're thinking in sequels.

The original idea Sony had, was to make this a trilogy. I still legitimately think this is supposed to be Sonic 1, 2, 3 & Knuckles. Unfortunately, we don't know if it'll even make it past 1.

Well if a contract for multiple movies is already signed, I think that pretty much ensures we're getting multiple of these damn things. Unless the first one tanks so bad Paramount backs out of the deal. But we all know this'll make money. It's the "so horrible, I just gotta pay money to see it" category for a lot of people.

I found Out of the Shadows to be a sufficient "apology film", if only because the first took such a half-assed approach to the brand that it's sequel's enthusiasm felt charming, and I read somewhere that they are going to reboot the brand.  It might not be fully animated, but the turtles themselves probably are, and they can do that brand just fine set in a realistic New York City.

Then again, maybe not.  One of the hallmarks of TMNT is its Fantasy Kitchen Sink, and when movies next establish the brand well, it might be time for a space travel movie, or a time travel movie, or a multiverse travel movie, or at least a conventional travel out of New York City movie.

We don't have to treat it like a zero sum game though. If the license proves to be profitable, it can help pave the way to an animated movie rather than hinder it. Into the Spider-verse is a perfect example of that. Everyone knows that franchise spits out live action movies and prints money, but eventually someone got off their tail and realized the demand/profitability of an animated take - and we got an awesome film from it.

If the Sonic movie does take in its fair share of $$$, then the single biggest complaint about the film (why isn't it an animated movie) won't just go unnoticed. I'd argue the more profitable it is, the marketable the franchise is, the higher the likelihood of getting that animated film. As opposed to the movie bombing and we wait 10 years before anyone is willing to touch it with a 10 foot pole.

I'm aware that the best chance for a future animated Sonic movie is for this to do well financially. The question is, is funding a product most of us assume is going to be bad really worth that risk? Much as I love Sonic, maybe Hollywood isn't the place for a Sonic movie to be made.
