A newly-surfaced banner for the live-action Sonic the Hedgehog movie offers fans the best look yet at the titular speedster’s design.
The Sonic The Hedgehog banner was spotted by a fan this past weekend and reveals Sonic’s redesign for his live-action debut. In the banner, Sonic The Hedgehog looks considerably less “realistic” than he looked like when the trailer for his movie premiered earlier this year.
You can see the banner with Sonic the Hedgehog below.
Sonic looks much more like his video game counterpart here. The blue hedgehog also appears to be shorter and not human-like. Instead, Sonic’s runner’s physique has been replaced with shorter, beefier legs and his torso is bigger than before. This lines up very well with how Sonic looks like in the video games.
Earlier this summer, when the Sonic The Hedgehog trailer was released to the public, fans were disappointed to find out that Sonic wasn’t rocking his classic look. This led to much ridicule at Sonic’s design and the film in general. After listening to fans, Paramount Pictures and the film’s director decided to push the project back and make Sonic The Hedgehog look the best they could.

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 centres 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.
Sonic the Hedgehog hits theaters on February 14, 2020. Stay tuned for the latest news on the Sonic movie!
