Here's what TSSZ have apparently verified as another shot from the movie. It looks... well. 

 

...Why? 

I'm so done now. I want to say something good but I'm just coming up blank. Everything that comes out is seriously killing my interest more and more.

It does not look that bad in my eyes. Sonic is one of the hardest characters to change for a live-action adoption. This is probably the best a person can do.

Maybe it's the angle but his head really does look huge. It's a strange design, but I won't nitpick it right now because I'm sure there's plenty of that.

Instead I will point out how childlike Sonic looks! I wonder what age he is supposed to be? I don't think this is the ~16 year old Modern Sonic we've seen in the 3D games. I'm thinking he's more like 10.

The comparison really makes you think, doesn't it... 🤔

 

Well, Sonic still doesn't (nor will he ever) look like a part of reality. If anything, this picture makes him stand out more, like a freakish animated character in the real world, something that only CGI could make. It's honestly a shame.

He actually looks like a bootleg figure, one that you'd find miscoloured in a Taiwanese shop or something. And I'm not sure teddy bear mouth is working for him; If anything, it makes him look less like Sonic.

To be perfectly honest, and I need to emphasise this:

I did not recognise him as Sonic until the post said so.

 

why can't we have a sonic movie? why do executives think their decisions override anything?

please, it actually hurts

Because executives know better and need to ""fix"" the design of a beloved character who's been popular for nearly 30 years.

As the saying goes, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." So, where was the Sonic design broke?

I'm being honest, someone please explain, it's starting to boggle my mind...

What is interesting, this many years from its beginnings, CGI characters (much less so non-animal depictions) really still look much less realistic than hand animated characters!!  

I am sure there is some sort of neuropsychological explanation for it, as well as aesthetic: Whether it is Roger Rabbit or Space Jam, the integration between the characters and filmed content is basically perfect and feels very natural to the mind and emotions!

Isn't there like an unspoken rule or something that goes something like: 'Don't fuck around with iconic.'? If there isn't, there really should be.

It wasn't reality enough, so they decided to make it more reality.

And instead, they only made it look even of an unrealistic mess. I honestly think you could've just altered Modern's design to give it a few more realistic touches like realistic fur and it would've stood out better. In fact, given there's a fan design of that floating around, I absolutely believe this.

And what's more funny - if he looks awful now - I sure as hell can't wait to see him next to real human people. Because I'm expecting Garfield the Movie levels of awful with this CGI.

There is still a small chance that, rather than introduce, perhaps to some controversy, Modern Sonic but with branded shoes (I thought i saw that in the thread yesterday?), they want to present this false version until perhaps April 1st this year?  

Then perhaps on that day, introducing the actual version to be used in the film, which would probably be the good one you are describing, the branded shoes would not be as much of an issue.

I get the feeling that there will be more developments on this either tonight or tomorrow. And, one thing's for sure, I'm growing more and more convinced by the day that SXSW will give us a trailer of some kind.

It is funny you say this, as SXSW will be running the stream for the Sonic panel themselves.

One less thing to worry about for you at TSSZ, but it makes one wonder about the occasion.

It is sad that people are still in this denial phase...

I'm sorry, but if we have this much information already, it's real. I'm am actually really, really sorry.

I feel that SXSW streams the Sonic panel whether it's huge or not. But it sure does make my work easier. lol

If there's going to be a Sonic movie trailer revealed there, though...I'm going into an underground bunker.

I'm not too big a fan of that still image. That being said, it also doesn't worry me that much because it's quite grainy/not-good-quality and looks like it's been taken when he was in the middle of talking while running. I need to see Sonic in actual motion in a trailer before I can form any sort of concrete opinion.

Still, the cartoony branding guide pics from yesterday? Those just keep growing on me~

It looks like an awful made for TV CG cartoon show.

 

Blockbuster movie? Lol.

My thoughts exactly.

I'm almost done with this film now. I just can't do this anymore. I'll check out the trailer whenever it releases, but I just cannot really accept this as Sonic. So if the design doesn't look better in the trailer, then I'll just stick to the game & TV Sonic.
