Now, this topic went silence since they start filming. I guess I need to liven up this topic by making another "Sonic In Real Life" picture. Any ideas?

Blacklisted by who. 06 has plenty of fans.

They probably just mean as in the game has literally been removed from sale by SEGA on digital platforms.  You can only buy physical copies second-hand now.

Mammoth Studios? Hmm. Interesting. I noticed that the address is the same address for the Hedgehog Films seen in the filming notice that was given last month.

This is the studio's website. You can check it out if you have the time.

A huge blue enclosure. What could that mean? Could they mean this?:

Even if many of the signs (the clapperboard artwork, Green Hills & Casino Night) are pointing towards Classic Sonic being in the movie, I'm very much hoping Classic isn't the design of Sonic in the film.

Think about how strange Classic would look in the real world. A short, stubby hedgehog with a huge head and large belly isn't something that is easy to fit in the real world unless executed well. Modern is IMO a much superior choice for the real life 3D context of this film, his proportions and appearance are arguably much more realistic than what Classic was initially designed with. Take a look at the cinematic cutscenes for Shadow and '06 for instance, in these cutscenes Sonic managed to fit well in a realistic 3D environment. Yes Classic Sonic has been done in a 3D environment before, but his design seen in Forces and Generations just looked plain strange. If they went with the way Classic looked in Forces/Generations, that would not look good in a real world environment.

Maybe if they wanted to get the Classic look in the film, I'd be happy for them to mix Classic and Modern into a hybrid design (or call back to the animations in CD and OVA, and anything made by Tyson Hesse ever) to get the look of nostalgia they want. But, to get Classic Sonic in the real world there needs to be some modification to his design to get him to fit in 3D, and in live action.

Don't get me wrong, I know Blur can get it done well. But I'm sceptical whether translating Classic's design into a real world perspective would work, or even in a 3D world. Anytime Classic Sonic has been executed in 3D it hasn't looked all that great IMO.

Just my 2c. Because this is a Sonic film, the Sonic design has got to work well with the real life environment that he is interacting with, because it is largely THE central component of the film.

Crazy to believe this movie is finally happening. 4 years since to was announced

I know, right? The movie is finally happening, and I’m so excited. I really can’t believe we actually getting an Sonic Movie and an Detective Pikachu movie next year.

On an unrelated note, this had been revealed today.:

I still think it's an odd choice to do Detective Pikachu instead of a full-on Pokemon movie but I love the cast so far

Hmm, I wonder what was that thing next to the green crane?
