Sonic Shows Off His Hairy Blue Legs in New SONIC THE HEDGEHOG Movie Poster
When the first poster for the upcoming Sonic The Hedgehog movie was released, a lot of people were a little disturbed by character design that was teased, especially his weird legs.
Well, another poster for the film has surfaced that specifically shows off Sonic’s human-like haity blue legs, and it certainly is weird!
Sonic is sitting on top of the Golden Gate Bridge and looking down at the path that he had just run to get up there. That view of his legs, though… yikes! I don’t know about this…
I’ll be honest, I’m not expecting much from this movie. As a fan of the character, I was hoping that it’s be good, but this character design is looking more and more ridiculous.
Sonic’s new story is said to be “a bit of a fish — or hedgehog — out of water” kind of story. The hedgehog, who will be voiced by Ben Schwartz, “finds himself in our present-day world, wherein he develops a relationship with James Marsden's Tom Wachowski and also finds himself at odds with Jim Carrey's Dr. Robotnik. As expected, mayhem ensues.”
This is the brief synopsis that was released:
Juvenile delinquent Sonic the Hedgehog and local policeman Tom Wachowski must stop Dr. Eggman from completing his plans for world domination.
Here are a few funny reactions to the new poster from Twitter:
When one of the writers of the film, Patrick Casey, took to Twitter to say, “Everybody relax”, the fans got riled up even more!
This movie is going to provide us with memes for the next 10 years. Its going to be legendary! I knew the movie wasn't going to be for fans but I never imagined it would be so memeable.— Overbound Games (@Overbound) December 12, 2018
If the design is a joke, then everybody will relax.— SuperWiiBros08 (@PAMVLLO) December 12, 2018
We're all disappointed with the Sonic model. It looks hideous and it's an abomination. I'm sorry, but this is going to hurt ticket sales.— DarkBorn Daddy (@ChaseClayborn) December 12, 2018
I'm relaxed. I'm also drained, confused, and disappointed.— Ganondork (@Ganondork123) December 12, 2018
Let the record show that I'm absolutely aware you're simply the writer and I don't condone the hate whatsoever, but the last thing I think you should do is fan the flames. We care about you, Casey. 😅— Victor McKnight ♪ (@Xacxon) December 11, 2018
Sonic The Hedgehog will hit theaters on November 8th, 2019.
