Paramount’s live-action Sonic the Hedgehog gets a perfect redesign in this awesome fan-made video.
The release date for the Sonic the Hedgehog movie was announced to have been pushed back earlier this year in order to give animators more time to redesign the titular speedster. When we’ll see that design remains unclear, but that hasn’t stopped fans from taking a crack at their own version of it.
Thanks to a new redesign for the live-action project that comes from Instagram user @darlison_4d, fans can get a look at the blue speedster in motion. You can check out the post below.
What do you think? Will this be close to the Sonic we get to see on the big screen come February? Would you be excited for a Sonic redesign similar to the one seen in the video above? Or do you want a slightly different take from Hollywood for Sonic’s live-action debut? Let us know in the comments!
Ben Schwartz, who voices Sonic in the movie, teased the character’s redesign will be close to his classic video game look after the film’s delay was announced by director Jeff Fowler. Since then, Sega Europe COO and president Gary Dale even spoke out on the Sonic live-action debut and his take on the situation.
Perhaps the most notable of Sonic drama came from the film’s star Jim Carrey and producer Adi Shankar. During a press tour, Carrey expressed concern for the decision to redesign the live-action Sonic based on fan input. In response, Shankar released a statement with his take on the initial Sonic design and the benefit of his redesign.
Here is the official synopsis for Sonic the Hedgehog:
Sonic the Hedgehog is a live-action adventure comedy based on the global blockbuster video game franchise from Sega that centers on the infamously brash bright blue hedgehog. The film follows the (mis)adventures of Sonic as he navigates the complexities of life on Earth with his newfound – human – best friend Tom Wachowski (James Marsden). Sonic and Tom join forces to try and stop the villainous Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey) from capturing Sonic and using his immense powers for world domination.
Directed by Jeff Fowler from a script written by Patrick Casey, Josh Miller, and Oren Uziel, Sonic the Hedgehog features the voice talent of Ben Schwartz as the titular character and stars James Marsden as sheriff Tom Wachowski, Jim Carrey as Dr. Ivo Robotnik, Neal McDonough as US Army Major Bennington, Tika Sumpter as Mrs. Wachowski, Lee Majdoub as Stone, and Frank C. Turner as Crazy Carl. Adam Pally, Natasha Rothwell, Debs Howard, and Elfina Luk also star in undisclosed roles.
Sonic the Hedgehog hits theaters on February 14, 2020. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on the live-action Sonic movie!
