There's a balance between creative integrity and fan input that needs to be respected here and this movie far and away has done nothing to achieve that from what I can tell. It doesn't even seem like this movie has either of those things to begin with.

This movie plot actually seems an awful lot like your typical "my first Sonic fanfic" when you're just a kid, doesn't really have a grasp on the universe/world of the franchise you like, but you still want to make your own story using the characters. I remember as an 8-12 year old I wanted to make my own Sonic game, but those ideas I sketched out on paper consisted of just a bunch of silly mish-mash of ideas..mostly putting Sonic in the world of 'Another World/Out of this world' or 'Heart of Darkness' where Sonic was using the laser gun to kill monsters and solve a lot of the same puzzles as in those games..fun memories, lol.

Maybe we need to be specific with what we want like I want Sonic with a gun should also have I want it to be built from scratch and not bolted onto a gameplay system that wasn't designed to handle it.

Is there real evidence that any amount of fans ACTUALLY asked SEGA to give Sonic a gun?

Well, what kind of evidence would you expect? It's either actual letters or emails sent to SEGA, both case it's in SEGA's posession, or it was on a website forum or something..which good luck finding 15 years later.

It just seems so easy to say, "Fans asked for it."

Did they? Did they really? How many? Does this involve blast processing?

We may never know the truth, although I did found this interview back from 2005 (if it is legit): http://cube.gamespy.com/articles/654/654735p1.html

GameSpy: Out of all the characters currently in the Sonic story, why did you choose to focus on Shadow for a new game?

Naka When we took a look at which Sonic characters were popular among fans, Shadow was ranked right behind Sonic. We've also wanted to do a "gun action" game for a while now, and he seemed to be the best fit for that idea. He and Sonic have a very different identity, after all. Finally, as we've been building the Sonic brand, we've had ideas of doing a spin-off series, so perhaps that's what Shadow will lead to.

GameSpy: Many people were initially surprised to see Shadow with a weapon, which is unusual for the Sonic series. Why did you decide to give Shadow the ability to bear arms?

Naka Well, there have been some shooting sequences in the Sonic Adventure games before, but they've been more "stand-and-shoot" style bits. We really wanted to challenge ourselves and do a high-speed gun action game. We decided that Shadow would be the perfect venue by which to try our hand at this genre.

(Well, Shadow definitely didn't lead to a spin-off series..)

But I'd definitely play a spinoff based on the Eggrobos and E-Series!

So, this was in the official Puma website. I wonder if this had something to do with the movie?

Most likely; the Sonic logo on the right is a disfigured version of the original made to resemble Movie Sonic.

I’m a noob to YouTube but about just over a month ago, when the new Sonic Movie trailer was released into the wild of the internet, I decided to make my first ever video featuring me in it and gave my thoughts on the movie trailer itself. Obviously the design was the biggest flaws, but I could see other good and also other slightly bad in the movie. Obviously these are just my own personal opinions, but check out my video below and tell me what you think? Do you agree or disagree with some topics I brought up?? 🤔

Excuse the audio mix, I was still getting use to the video software at the time. 🙂

I mean in the trailer he was wearing puma shoes and people could even preorder them on the site when the trailer released.

Although now that the film is delayed, they'll prolly change the shoe design to an extent.

I see no reason for the shoes to change in the film. It's not really part of the "design" people were reacting to.

The shoes were still a part of the design which were reacted to negatively as there's no reason why they should look so different (and bland) from the original. It's just that the shoe design change didn't matter much because everything else about Sonic's movie redesign is a lot worse.

I don't think the shoes will change they're an existing product, I saw a pair being worn a few weeks ago.

Really now?

Did anyone see this fuck-ugly movie fan design that Yuki Naka shared earlier?

Where as the artist is clearly extremely talented at working with CG well...

https://www.artstation.com/artwork/Vdkl5Z

Not sure if this is allowed on this thread as it's technically just fan work so please delete if I've committed a forum sin.

It's just shown me that the movie design could have been worse!

Have you seen the crap Penders churns out? Of course it could have been worse.

 

That being said, I did get a giggle out of the ribbed tracksuit being inspired by the Sega logo itself,. If your going to set out to make an abomination, might as well have fun with it lol.

Why the hell does he look like one of those Na'vi things? They look ugly enough, never mind made into a Sonic.

I was gonna make a joke, but then I realized it might be racist.

I don't see how it shows anything other than that body texture being a really stupid design that doesn't make sense.

Kinda a bit unrelated, Ben posted some pictures of him meeting Roger Craig Smith.

Also, here is Roger’s response.:

 

Heh. Gotta appreciate little stuff like that.
