Here is the logo with a desert background, going with a road runner scenario? Just kidding, I have no idea what Sonic game features a similar feel level if any have one.

Perfect.  The teaser trailer will be out by E3 or Comic Con.

Well,  We probably not likely to get one until like around next year. They haven't started filming yet. Usually movies have their trailers out a couple more months before their release date.

Maybe, hopefully the characters would look like this.:

That seems unlikely since the movie currently has no announced cast.

"Teaser". All it has to be is a ring falling down and a logo that says "Sonic the Hedgehog 2019" to confirm that it's happening publicly.

Well, I’m glad this movie is finally happening. However, I’m kinda worried what would Sonic and his friends would look like in the live action scenes. I’m ok if they look like these.:

Since Marza is working on this, I don’t think we have to worried about them getting realistic designs.

Not sure about teaser trailer (I think we could get one with the Bumblebee movie), but we may get a teaser poster at sdcc.

Live action... mixing with real life places and real life actors...

It is guaranteed that this movie will be cringe-worthy.

Well, we don’t know anything about the movie yet. If the movie is going have a lot of action like scenes of Sonic running, passing through, overtaking cars, and destroying stuff, I’m ok with that. I don’t really expect the movie to be a Oscar Worthy Movie, but I expect to be a dumb fun action packing movie with unrealistic physics like the Fast and Furious movies. In fact, the Fast and Furious producer is producing this.

That info that I just said was confirmed like a year ago... I hope they change that, it will be uncanny.

Yea, I know, I wish the movie was animated. I don’t know why they decided to make Sonic’s first feature film, a Live-Action/CGI movie. Maybe they want to make it more exciting and action packing for kids to watch? I think, it’s probably too late to change the film into a animated film, unfortunately. They are getting ready to start filming this summer. The director is getting ready assembling his film crew.  According to Van, he say that they are deep into the character tests, which I’m assuming the character models being tested out. He also say that Tim Miller make it more action focused which mean that the movie will contain a lot of action.

The live-action/CG decision just says to me that somebody at Sonic Team is really into the whole two worlds idea, and thinks that Sonic should be all about him and his furry pals hanging around with a bunch of humans in what looks like the real world.  Adventure, Adventure 2, Shadow, '06, Unleashed, and of course Sonic X - they all follow this model, and a couple of them really feel to me like the overseers only made a video game because they weren't in a position to make a movie.  It's not clear that Sonic Team particularly care about Sonic's world at all.

Which I find utterly baffling since the single most iconic thing about the franchise aside from any of its characters is the lush checkerboarded loop de loops of Green Hill Zone and its various counterparts.

The desire to shoehorn Sonic into the "real world" alongside humans is one of the weirdest design impulses I've ever seen. Why does Sonic Team want to trade its visually unique world for another video game New York City or San Francisco knock off?

I hate that we're getting Sonic X: The Movie instead of a faithfully animated adventure in Sonic's world.

Is it fair to include Unleashed in that though?

While the wold "World Adventure" theme did pull from natural wonders and real world locals, I thought Sonic Team bent over backwards in designing places that captured the charm of all these exotic locals, while creating what was a suitable compromise between real and sonic-y. Even the human ensemble received cartoonish redesigns.

It didn't feel like the usual push to include Sonic in the human world.

Considering fans complain about them being overused in the games, their absence in the movie might be meant to make up for it.

Setting it in the real world can make sense for a multitude of reasons. Last we heard, this is a big budget, blockbuster adaption of Sonic with a franchise being a main interest. An animated movie targeted towards 9 year olds does not accomplish that same affect. A Sonic X-type film lends itself so much better to an action packed blockbuster adaptation of the series. Paramount picked up the rights because they need a new franchise after the bombing of Transformers. Sonic can be a viable replacement

This is a fair objection, but you have to consider that the essentials stand.  It's still the world of humans and human civilisation, with Sonic, Tails, Amy and I suppose Chip as the only anthros you ever see.  It's not the product of developers with any interest in Sonic's world or animal people.

Sonic as a replacement for the Transformers movies. Oh boy oh boy...

I'd rather take the animated movie aimed towards 9-year-olds. Trying to make Sonic into a typical Hollywood action blockbuster sounds cringey to me. I doubt it would work, especially with Sonic and his reputation being what it is these days.

The problem is I think there's a real chance that a shitty live action blockbuster with a 24% on rottentomatoes will be more profitable than a faithfully animated movie that scores a fresh rating. Short term gain.

The problem is that Sonic as a brand is already tremendously damaged. A profitable but badly received film could further alienate some of the audience while failing to cultivate a new one that sticks around for more than one game.
