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

Recommended Posts

To be fair Jim Carrey has a point. But at the same time he isn't invested in the franchise at all (he clearly knows bugger all about it in the interviews lol). Where as I agree to an extent, that Sonic design was fucking awful and HAD TO change. I wish something similar had happened with the Michael Bay TMNT (although it was dead from day one as they ruined the origin story, at least it would have been more visually pleasing.)

Tommorow we will have about 192 days until the movie comes out. When the first trailer came out with its November date still occupied, we had about 192 days until the film's release. Paramount typically releases trailers on a Tuesday. The Angry Birds Movie 2 is another video game movie coming out soon.

New trailer tommorow????? Probably not but...

I'm assuming so. Trailer Track is saying no. That Brazilian guy was saying yes. Do Paramount have another big kids movie before Sonic? I would have thought at least a very short teaser tomorrow? They need to start advertising it again.

Well I mean Dora also comes out this month. I talked earlier about that being a possibility too.

TrailerTrack isn’t expecting another trailer until like October or November.

It’s possible that we could get an official reveal of Sonic’s redesign instead. Jeff Fowler will probably posted it on his Twitter and Instagram.

I assumed for a while it would be with Dora too. We shall see tomorrow! 😁 As someone who liked the first trailer (minus Gangsta's Paradise and that awful design), I am sure to lose my shit if they manage to do a new trailer with a cool looking Sonic and a more fitting choice of music. We shall see tomorrow!

Here’s another one.:

Speaking at TCA panel for his Showtime series Kidding, Carrey questioned the notion of the audience being able to weigh in (and force change) while a project is still in production, acknowledging fans "had the sense of ownership" of the character because it is from their childhood. 

"Sometimes, you find the collective consciousness finds it wants something and then when it gets it: 'I just wanted it, I didn't care about it. I just jumped on the bandwagon,'" Carrey said. "Ownership of anything is going out the window for all of us."

I do have to say this is true. For as much as I wanted the design to change, I’m still not going to see the movie. There are a myriad of other issues that turn me away from the film that a design change will not fix. All I wanted was a better Sonic for others, so that newcomers can see this movie and recognise that, yes, despite everything in the movie, that character is still Sonic.

It was revealed in that owl leak I showed earlier that the redesign and delay has been in the works since January though. It could be slightly more finished by now than we think.

We could get a behind-the-scenes video.

Well, in 2 hours we will know the truth... Hopefully. If there is nothing today, then we really have to wait until NYCC in October, and I can't handle all that wait. I'm normally patient about releases (more or less) but I'm just too curious at this point.

So this youtuber called Max G created a video suggesting how the Sonic movie could have been made differently:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cvdRtsMxjmc

As a 90's kid myself, what I dig most about his idea is the whole 90's angle he suggests for the movie, with the movie being set in the 90's, having a 90's soundtrack, Sonic having his 90's design, ect ect. That would be so awesome.

So, Adi Shankar who is the executive producer of Dredd and the Netflix TV show, Castlevania respond to Jim Carrey’s reaction on the redesign.: 

Carrey’s comments were responded to by Shankar in a brief open letter, which he exclusively sent to Screen Rant. It reads as follows:

Dear Jim,

The audience isn’t “in on the creation” of the film you acted in. Sonic the Hedgehog was already created, decades ago. This film you lended your talents to adapted him incorrectly. It’s this perspective that Hollywood is entitled to dismantle iconography as it sees fit and reassemble it in ways that often bear little resemblance to the source that has led to the friction between gamers and the film industry.

Best,

Adi

This...is the same Adi Shankar who makes all those Bloody and heavily sexual "bootleg" fan films, right?

I know it's not as finished as the other reanimated video that was put out this week (but honestly, I think we can all agree that Hotdiggetydemon is kind of... Seth McFarlane-y), but I thought I'd like to share with you all.

Just here to be a little more positive.

I was going to see if his vid was mentioned here. Yeah his animation is good technically speaking; but the way he did it for Sonic is way too Ren & Stimpy. Yours is much more in line with how Sonic actually expresses emotions. :)

Also why does every popular Youtuber have to hammer in that they're "most definitely not/never been Sonic fans" when they probably are.

Seriously its like the one taboo for them. :/

I usually draw in a similar artstyle as shows like Ren & Stimpy and SpongeBob (not really sure what the technique is called, but I've studied it). I don't really see that comparison here. If you want to see a Ren & Stimpy-esq animated Sonic, watch Adventures Of Sonic The Hedgehog. Vincent Waller, a guy who worked on both Ren & Stimpy and SpongeBob, storyboarded that show.

The "Ren & Stimpy" technique is when every frame of an animated character's movement has a new, overly exaggerated, and (lack of better words) squash and stretch style of expression. If anything, hotdiggitydemon follows the Ren & Stimpy method (and most people like it).

 

I see this Sonic animation as just very cartoony, but not too exaggerated to the point where it wouldn't work in a live action movie if it's trying to aim for a semi-realistic appeal. I can definitely notice the animal-like inspiration with his quills going up while screaming, and the added whiskers (that's something Detective Pikachu was aiming for when animating too).

I should've clarified that the exaggerated expressions were what gave off a Ren & Stimpy vibe for me. Particularly how he smiles after "meow?", when he's screaming, and after he faints. That's definitely not a style we'd ever see Sega roll with in modern stuff.

It's fuckin creepy how it suddenly begins to transition into the live action model again.

That's tough talk from someone who doesn't seem to remember Grant's existence in Castlevania 3.
