    Default Sonic The Hedgehog 2019 Movie (CGI + Live-Action): For Really Reals This Time?

    The move will contain computer animated characters and live action humans. It has been delayed for years. It has been through two different movie studios. It's direction changed from story-focused to action-focused. I'm glad we finally have a year + month + day this time, but for crying out loud, the movie was originally announced in 2016!

    The (supposed) launch day will be November 15, 2019.

    That feeling you get when you'd only watch it if the title character was voiced by Jaleel White and the movie involves the planet already wrecked and in full grimdark industrial mode. I'm going to go try to unbury my VHS of Surf Ninjas. It'll be just as awful, but in a way that makes it freakin' awesome.

    So we have a live action/CGI Sonic movie with a bunch of (mostly) no-names on board versus a Mario movie made by one of the premiere 3D animation companies and co-produced by Miyamoto? Wonder which will be better received.

    The more I read about the Sonic 2019 movie, the more I stand by my words: "It is like watching a train wreck in slow motion." It's no wonder Paramount isn't showing the short trailers online where the wider world can see them and instead is only showing them at little film festivals and events.

    This is definitely one of those movies where I'll be seeing it for myself then warning the rest of the world about it.

    The character models are so bad its not even funny. Well actually it is pretty funny. My friends first reaction was that he looked like a Care Bear

    With that release date I'm going to double down on a previous prediction I made in this thread.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FvvZaBf9QQII

    Why just why? This looks like it should have been released like 15 years ago. Weird. I see this bombing hard, doubt kids these days even know who Sonic is lol.

    I think given how successful every Sonic game ever made has been, regardless of its quality, the movie will go over just as well

    Yeah it looks God awful but so do a lot of movies that perform well at the box office

    336k downvotes to 212k upvotes. Not looking too good. I think most gamers hate it but what about 40 year old moms with 2 or 3 kids? Will they care that Sonic looks like a grotesque furry freak, that Jim Carrey looks and sounds nothing like Robotnik, or that the jokes fall flat? Probably not

    He may have outgrown it, since now he's into Fortnite, but my 9-year-old nephew was crazy about Sonic. The Sonic IP is still pretty active even in recent years, like with the Sonic Boom cartoon that ran from 2014 to 2017, so kids these days are familiar with Sonic.

    Edit: And on that note, I'm moving this topic to Modern Gaming. It's okay to discuss game-related media (movies, comics, whatever) in the Classic and Modern Gaming sections.

    Sonic Boom started in 2014? I thought this was a current show, I didn't know it already finished a few years ago. I guess I haven't been keeping up with what's new on TV lately.

    There's another thread on the Sonic movie already, shouldn't they be combined?

    The Sonic The Hedgehog CGI movie has been delayed to 2020 now - Valentine's Day 2020 - to make time to rework and re-implement the new 3D Sonic. I guess that it is good that they are "fixing" its appearance, but seriously movie-guys, you should have just let the movie drop in November as it is going to be a lame movie regardless of how Sonic looks. Changing the appearances of the emoji in the Emoji movie would not have changed that movie from a stinker to a cinematic masterwork.
