For once, I agree with IonFan. This looks a lot like what we had in the first trailer.

^Definitely looks better.

But, I don't get why they can't just do a quality animated movie, especially in a property where the human character doesn't look like he's from the real-world. Why go through the stupid cliche of "now, he's in our world"?

Aren't we past the point of thinking of live action as the only legit movies? And what does "live action" mean when the main character and most of the effects are cartoons.

I kind of wondered the same thing when Disney decided to remake The Lion King in "live action". In what sense is it live action when pretty much all the characters are CGI?

I think it looks a lot better, but I kind of hate the precedent this sets.

You mean redesigning because of public backlash? True, but I suppose it’s not far from editing and reshooting due to the test screening. It is different (because that, at least, is done with the whole picture in view), but kind of an extension of that.

now as to the "precedent this sets" THIS IS A GOOD THING, no one was gonna see the sh!t show they were given us before, NOW people will see this

after all how many times has the "public backlash" been right about things (GhostBusters 2016, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Terminator: Dark Fate, Star Trek: Discovery ect., ect., ect.)

I dunno... are there really millions of Sonic fans who played the games 30 years ago who would even see this, good or not? I'm not so sure.

Caught Joe Vargas's reaction to the remade trailer, Sonic finally looks like he should. The quality of the computer effects before was good, that wasn't the problem. The problem was that the character was too realistic-looking and had unnecessary changes (not wearing gloves, super-visible teeth, etc). Sonic has always had a cartoon quality to his design because he's not realistic by nature, so redesigning him to be accurate to his standard look isn't caving to fan pressure for no reason, it's getting the design right. If Batman was redesigned to not having a single thing bat-related, but still called Batman, anybody would be right to criticize it because the change from the template would be too much and therefore be a wholly different character.

This redesign looks great, the film still looks appealing (maybe cliche, sure, but entertaining. I even like that Sonic is still scatterbrained). I'm far more in the mood to see it now and really look forward to Jim Carrey as Robotnik (the dance scene looks hilarious).

As for an animated Sonic film, there was one in 1999, but it's hard as fuck to find, so good luck. Definitely worth it though, the animation was top-notch and the action was great.

Impossible to say because personal taste is still a thing, and because a small but angry group will always be louder than a large complacent one. If 5% of the audience really hate a movie, 95% don't and you give in to the loud, passionate ones, you just lost 95% of your audience.

As a Sonic fan, I just wish they would leave him out of the live action production altogether. I'll watch it, because I am an extreme Sonic fan, but I'm not happy. A full cartoon film would have been welcomed by me. Heavy sigh.

That's what I'm saying.

Yeah, I will try to find that, but I (and probably boB) was thinking more on a big release like Into the Spiderverse.

EDIT: actually, if it's under an hour (which seems to fit with IMDb), it's on Youtube:

You read my mind. I'm sure it was traumatic inside my head. Please send any therapy bills to my ex-wife.

LOL. I was just saying what I was thinking and figured we basically felt the same, though I'm probably not as strong a Sonic fan.

Strong? LOL! I haven't bathed yet today, so you're probably more accurate than you wanna know. In my defense, I have felt bad since yesterday.

I'll tell you, though, I might not be that big a Sonic fan, the sound of collecting the rings is stuck in my head forever.
