We’ve seen these video game movies come and we’ve seen them go, but how often have they actually succeeded? Not a lot, right?
Well, whether it’s the best idea or not, the powers that be have decided to bring one of the most iconic video game characters to the big screen once again. Sonic the Hedgehog has his very own movie coming out next November with Ben Schwartz voicing him, but now that the first poster is here, everyone is talking.
Now, the thing is, the poster that everyone has seen isn’t even a real look at the design. It’s a blue-lit silhouette, but that hasn’t stopped anyone from voicing their concerns.

From the shape of his legs to the shoes on his feet, people have opinions on it all.
The human-like body on the hedgehog have made some fans feel uneasy.
If you could only:
-Not do that human-like body on Sonic
-Change the shoes back to either the Soap shoes or the original
-Fix Sonic’s eyes
Then I might consider watching.

Oh man those legs

For some reason its the legs that bother me the most…..

This assessment in particular made me chuckle.
Looks like an animorph that just gave up halfway through.

Other people tried to use logic to justify their choices, but even logic couldn’t make them like the look of this … “creature.”
I mean, it makes sense…
If he’s the fastest thing alive, then his legs need to be strong so he is able to run without completely destroying them. Still not a fan of this design, though.

Other people are concerned over the sound effects.
If they can’t even use the original ring sounds then that should indicate what kind of a dumpster fire this is going to be.

Even though it seems like most people hate the look of it, there are some people who are excited for it anyways.
I can believe I have to wait till November 2019 to see this train wreck

While others are… let’s say “less than optimistic.”
