Sonic, What Did They Do To You, Buddy?
Sonic The Hedgehog, a most beloved video game character that has evolved through the industry of gaming since just about the start of it, is getting his own live-action movie come next year from Paramount Pictures. The actor, Ben Schwartz has been cast the role of our favorite blue speedster.
Which, Godspeed to Paramount Pictures being that the majority of viewers to the exclusive motion poster presented through IGN so far have absolutely dreaded having to even see it.
Sonic is a hedgehog, so why does he have fur? That seems to be one of the biggest, yet fair arguments that has circled the media. Hedgehogs have quills, which they seem to have gotten right based on his spikes, but why is there fur on the spikes? Fur on the belly is fine because that’s where you’d find fur on a hedgehog, but that’s about it.
Whatever process they used while animating and designing him, they need to give it back to Dr. Eggman. Hey, maybe this Sonic was created by him? Which reminds me, what will Dr. Eggman look like? There’s no information regarding if he will be in the film, but it doesn’t matter, we just need Sonic to be Sonic.His body is not the typical slender build that we are familiar with, he’s more toned.
I guess that’s what happens when you run around the planet all day, your glutes and hamstrings start to bulk up and shape themselves, even for little ol’sonic. The Detective Pikachu movie raised a lot of concern when people saw Pikachu’s fur for the first time, however, that can be overlooked. In the case of Sonic, this is something that has to be addressed.
“It would be weird and it would feel like he was running around nude if he was some sort of otter-like thing,” executive producer Tim Miller (Deadpool’s director) said to IGN. “It was always, for us, fur, and we never considered anything different. It’s part of what integrates him into the real world and makes him a real creature.”
It’s reported that the movie won’t even be on earth. So, this Sonic is an alien? Did he turn Super Sonic and fly to this planet for some reason? Is this a different universe or dimension or original version? Nobody really knows at this point, but we do know that if this is what Sonic looks like, just imagine Tails, and don’t even get me started on Knuckles. Niether of the previously mentioned characters could even be making an appearance in the film. This could a strictly Sonic solo act. Be that as it may, there will need to be some sort of redeeming factor if this is how our little blue creature will be portrayed.
Sonic The Hedgehog will be out on November 8th, 2019
