Paramount has just released the new Sonic the Hedgehog trailer. It gives us our first official look at the redesigned Sonic, and I have to say that it looks 100x better.
Now that’s the Sonic we all love and know. If you somehow managed to bleach your eyeballs and forgot what Sonic originally looked like, here’s a side-by-side comparison.
My god, it is amazing that making something more cartoony in a live-action landscape actually works better. That monster on the right looks like a science experiment gone wrong. Sonic on the left looks like an enjoyable little scamp.
I’m digging Ben Scwartz‘s voice as Sonic, and Jim Carrey looks like he’s having fun. I think the redesign worked in the film’s favor as I’m way more likely to go see it now than before. Is that dumb? I don’t care, I just know I’d pick this over Fantasy Island for Valentine’s Day.
Sonic the Hedgehog hits theaters February 14, 2020.
What do you guys think of the redesign? Will you be seeing the movie in theaters?
