Point is. It's not a game, it's a movie and not animated.

That's a stupid point. People want a movie with the design they've bonded with for the past few decades, not some distorted abomination.

It's not about him lookin like an animal on Earth. Sonic as presented in this movie looks nothing like any animal known on Earth. But there's a reason why ET did not look like a cartoon plastered into the real world. We're talking about the difference between a creature that is believably real and something that looks like it belongs in another plane of existence where everything is animated 

"Sonic is from another world. Make him look believably real on Earth."

Just explain to us all what is so edgy about dipping your hands in white paint instead of wearing gloves?

For the same reason why Captain America has a wing decal on his helmet instead of literal pointed wings like he does in the old comics. The same reason why Thor is not wearing bell bottom yellow boots. The same reason why Batman and Superman no longer wear trunks. It's about translating the design to live action in a way that updates it but pays homage

One of the renders seen on one of these leaked pictures remind me of this.:

All of the art is just bastardised versions of pre-existing Sonic art. In particular

- Sonic's 06 render

- Sonic's Smash 4 render

- Mighty's Mania art (?!?)

Thats a bad way of looking at the universe. Not everything in the universe looks real. There are photo's of phenomena that many people look at and think "Oh, thats edited" and then find out its not. We humans are so small minded that we think we are the pinacle of evolution, nothing could be above us. We conquered out planet, anything that is successful elsewhere must look like us or I don't believe it is real. Its a pitfall most sci fi falls into that every alien normally looks human and this seems to be going the same way.

You're arguing human beings wearing ridiculous pieces of clothing to a walking talking hedgehog with red trainers. How is this an accurate comparsion whatsoever? I think if anyone was going to find something to complain about Sonic's design and realism, it'd probably be the - again - walking, talking hedgehog, and not the fact that he wears gloves.

Or are gloves unrealistic too?

But there's live-action movies with extremely cartoony CGI characters already??? There's no reason you couldn't just... drop a tweaked Modern design in the real world and call him a weird alien experiment or something

Live action movies that are aimed at small children and are completely self-aware. Roger Rabbit is nothing like what this movie will be

This movie is coming out after a slew of Marvel movies that got the designs and how they could and should work down. Even if you consider that, after it went to Paramount, things were likely only finalized not THAT long ago, there's absolutely no reason for this movie to be so far beyond they struggle with the very basics of translating a character's design.

Great update, they made him look like a Chinese knock-off plastic figurine. It's genius marketing.

Only just realised he’s mimicking some of the CG Sonic poses and it does not look good. It’s not horrible, but it’s still a bad design lol. Can’t imagine what Tails and the others would look like so I’m quite glad they don’t seem to be in this! =D

You just defended a character dipping their hands into paint to make it look like they're wearing gloves...

You just did that.

I'm just trying to look at this from the filmmaker's perspective. Trying to understand and make sense of what they did. You can compare Sonic to Howard the Duck in the MCU who also got a realistic facelift. He's now wearing pants and no longer looks like Donald Duck but like a duck-like alien.

 I think the last one is the Generations render:

Arms are different, but the legs are a match.

He didn't dip his hands. That's likely the natural color of his hand fur. Wherever Sonic comes from, all of his people have it. 

 

That's like saying a black, brown and white Cat dipped himself in white to get that color. It's his natural coat that is the result of genetics
