Sonic the Hedgehog Live-Action Design Partially Revealed in New Poster

Sonic's got a new look in next year's live action movie.

Sonic the Hedgehog fans are used to being the butt of jokes, and Sonic's new look for the upcoming live-action movie is sure to make it even harder to defend being a fan of the Blue Blur.

IGN recently spoke to the movie's executive producer, Tim Miller, and producer, Neal Moritz, both of which had a few things to say about the new realistic direction for Sonic.

It's a good piece to read if you're a Sonic fan, but not really worth it if you don't care for Sega's hedgehog mascot.

This newest incarnation of Sonic will have new shoes and two eyes, and has clearly has not skipped leg day.

Honestly, I'm not digging it.

The poster looks a bit like a horror movie thanks to those proportions -- and you can see a bit of eye or eyelid there on his turned face. It looks creepy.

The Sonic fanbase has flown off the handle multiple times in the past over the character's redesigns. This one looks to veer off more than any of its predecessors, and I'm sure it's going to get plenty of references to hedgehog on human relations from those in the community (thanks again for Sonic '06, Sega).

The Sonic the Hedgehog movie is slated for release in November 2019, so we likely have a while to wait before we see what this new live-action take on Sonic really looks like.

Maybe it'll be better than we think.

Classic annoying Sega kid, still hasn't let go of Sonic and prefers arcade-style games. Final Fantasy and SaGa rock whatever it is you like, chump.
