Sonic Live Action Movie Thread (Read OP for topic rules) "Trailer 2 on Page 482)

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

Yeah but dude, I'm just reporting what Tails Channel and TSSZ said, that the art style guide is probably gonna be the closest and most recent to final design. They could potentially make him look like that in CGI, I mean the leaked full body model is literally a human, it looks very different, meanwhile the style guide is very cartoony, probably because it's art but still.

Yep, this is definitely what worries me about the Reddit rumor:

1. It starts out as nothing like Sonic, even though it progressively becomes like that. Mostly Robotnik

2. I don't like that it sounds exactly like a Superman story, and the Lex Luthor from BvS, I'm terrified because of that. But I think Jim Carrey could definitely make a better work than that.

3. The Owl thing is weird.

But still, didn't one of the script leaks involve the name of Tika Sumpter's character and it was NOT Annie. So this could be proof that the "leak" is fake, because I remember a photo Tika retweeted that showed the name of her character, does somebody remember it? I can't remember the name either, it was posted on Discord, but it would confirm the reddit stuff as an hoax.

Plus, it's kind of obvious they have been taking feedback from fans and SEGA, as that old post of the meeting at SEGA showed...

Edit: Just to remind people, I'm talking about this:

A possible way to debunk Shreksdonkey would be determine whether this movie actually has done any advance screenings.  I know Brazilians got footage a bit earlier, but I mean the whole movie, sans complete animation.  If they haven't shown it to anyone, at least not anyone random whom they can't trust to maintain confidentiality, then that leak is probably false.

However, it also sounds like the sort of thing that could be true; if only because it sounds as bare-bones and alien to Sonic as every detail officially released suggests this film will be.

Part of me wants this to be true because it sounds like a genuinely heart warming story but another part doesn't because it strays pretty far from the core mythos of Sonic. I know people will call me a hypocrite but there's a difference between completely changing his backstory, taking away his ties to other characters and just having a re-established Sonic coming to Earth like Sonic X.

 

I remember a leak where Tika's character name was revealed too. I don't remember what it was

So, Lee who will played Agent Stone in the movie posted this.:

 

I sure hope that isnt just another rumour, i mean yeah despite my reactions to it the designs here are not too bad all things considered but if they turn out to be test renders and not the final I can safely say thank friggin Christ.

Heck thank Buddha, the Hindu gods, Allah, Zeus, Kahless, the SubGenius, Kthulu, the flying spaghetti monster, the invisible pink unicorn, Tarvu, and of course dont forget about the great teapot!

It's Nan Morales. Revealed in this picture of the script.

Although then again considering when this was known (back in August last year I think) maybe there was some time to change it? From the pieces of info last year the story and film could've still been in progress at that time.

Honestly at this point I'd rather wait for the trailer to come whether it's in SXSW or when Paramount says screw it and posts it instead.

Wouldn't her last name be Watchowski if she's Tom's wife?

Not every married person takes their partners last name.

Then high chances is it could be fake. I know I want that, I believe they already did test screenings, and CGI is likely not finished, although he liked it and stuff, I still don't like it because nothing in it sounds like Sonic. It sounds like Superman. I don't want that. Sure it's gonna be an origin story, and a different take on Sonic, but please have more easter eggs from the games! That was basically everything kept to minimum. Meh.

Tom's name wasn't changed, I don't see why Nan would not be kept.

Not gonna lie...I don't think this movie is going to be like the Sonic we know.

That's sort of why I'm leaning towards believing it (but I wouldn't be shocked if it was fake either lmao)

No no, it did get some things right, likely, but a couple of them are off, not just Tika's name, but how he describes Robotnik being a government agent in a lab costume and with a short moustache, not only it's boring, but... we know according to BTS that Jim Carrey filmed on green screen studio, behind closed doors, that kind of implies his look will have some CGI bits probably. Years of following BTS TV shows payoff sometimes.

It's a clever design choice imo. It's paying homage to the gloves while at the same time keeping the same design philosophy that Tim and Jeff wanted Sonic to have.

 

I have to imagine Tails and Amy have white hands as well. Knuckles would look a bit more weird tho
