After months of anticipation and night terrors, Paramount Image’s model of Sonic the Hedgehog leaked on-line lately. Branding corporate Hamagami/Carroll, Inc. posted its style guide for the upcoming hybrid live-action/animated film. And what it published is … incorrect.
Obviously, we at the moment are in a cursed timeline. One thing has long gone incorrect, and our fact has splintered off from the sunshine. Is it as a result of any individual destroyed Momo? Is that this the punishment we will have to undergo for our sins.
Sonic, your face is incorrect
Of the various issues incorrect with the movie adaptation of Sonic, it’s the eyes that I to find essentially the most haunting. Within the video games, comics, and cartoons, Sonic has at all times had attached eyes. It’s one thing that appears utterly customary to me after seeing his face for 25 years.
However Tim Miller, Sonic the Hedgehog government manufacturer and bring in of the blue doppelganger demon, attempted to warn us.
“I don’t suppose Sega was once completely proud of the attention resolution,” Miller told IGN. “However for those types of stuff you move, ‘It’s going to seem bizarre if we don’t do that.’”

Say what you’ll about Sonic, his video games, and now this film, however this persona has at all times had an instantly recognizable taste. And in a global the place Spider-Guy: Into the Spider-Verse wins an Oscar by way of leaning right into a comic-book visible taste, perhaps Paramount would have extra good fortune if it embraced Sonic as an alternative of looking to sand down his taste to suit right into a extra standard glance.
