Adapt Sonic the hedgehog the movie, there was a challenge of nightmare proportions. And judging by the first images, the fans could suffer.
Legendary hero of Sega, and for a long time emblem of the brand, before she knows exactly how to make the famous hedgehog, or convince players to buy its consoles, Sonic is a character from the platform game of the same name, famous for its look instantly recognisable as his speed supra-luminique.
Coming soon to the poster of a film currently in post-production, it intends to engage on the same playing field as a Detective Pikachu and user of the recognition of its brand in an indirect way, by not adapting the games (and their environments rather déréalisés) but by putting the hero in a story set in our world.

The journalists at IGN have been granted access to a first poster who tells us that the look of the character has not evolved a lot over, because the director, Tim Miller, already at the head of Deadpool, has explained the changes that made it so extraordinarily hideous.
The first challenge came in the form of Sonic, absolutely not “realistic” or consistent with the performances of his species (he is a hedgehog). The director and the studio have decided to cover the character of the fur, and believed that this transformation would help the public to believe in him.
“It would be really weird and strange that he runs around being naked, whereas there is a kind of otter. For us it has always seemed obvious that it would be covered in fur, and we never considered anything else. It is what integrates it into the real world and in fact a living creature. “
It is necessary to imagine the same thing with Ben Schwartz and Jim Carrey
It is not easy to transform Sonic, but according to IGN, the producer Neal Moritz for its part, had a quite precise idea and wished to place herself in the continuity of a Ted. A info that may be jumping the fans, the description of this Sonic not having great connection with the games which would inspire the film. And that will tell-t it ?
We follow, therefore this blue hedgehog full of fur (sigh), who, after having landed in our world will strike up a friendship with James Marsden, before the meeting of Jim Carrey, a terrible Dr. Robotnik, with whom he will play in the fight.
The film is expected to on December 25, 2019 in France. Oh, and Sonic has sneakers, red on the feet. But not the same as usual.
The beautiful beast
