The live-action version of Sonic The Hedgehog looks… uhm… yeah…

Whoever gave the greenlight for this live-action version of Sonic must have been on a real trip at the time. Since the official reveal that a live-action Sonic movie was in the works we’ve been following events unfold and it’s turning more bizarre the more is shown.

Nothing has officially been released for the movie yet, other than the silhouette of Sonic in a previous image released. Now it seems we have our first real look at Sonic live-action version thanks to film style guide that has been leaked.

It would obviously be very unfair to judge this before we’ve even seen as much as a trailer, but going by the history of video game movies trying to tie into platformer games via a live-action movie *looks at Super Mario Bros. movie* and it leaves us with little to no faith in it.

Hopefully the live-action movie can buck the trend and do something that is as refreshing as Sonic Mania was for the beloved mascot in gaming. Jim Carrey playing Eggman (Dr. Robotnik) could swing it either way.

Sonic The Hedgehog launches on 8 November in the US, with the rest of the world to follow thereafter.

Married to a gamer and she kicks my ass at most shooters. If the game is enjoyable I'll play it, no matter the format.
