If this is half as good as either Smurfs or one of the Chipmonks movies this will be... very shit.

In my view they should have cast Ben Blau.  This is like the Elephant Man remake all over again.

Just reading up on this and apparently there is only one Sonic Hedeghog in this. When will they learn?

They're all stupid. Everyone knows what the world needs is a dark and gritty Shadow the Hedgehog film!

They should have gone the whole hog with the live-action. If they're using real people they should use a real hedgehog, dye it blue and use back-projection of fast moving scenery to make it look speedy.
He'd still have Sonic's character and wit, but he would communicate in snuffles and grunts.

$100k budget, $500m return. It's a no-brainer.

. I liked Mario Brothers. I seem to be in the minority though.

I always liked the Mario movie. The look & feel of it makes more sense when you know it's written & directed by the people who did the dystopian cyberpunk Max Headroom TV series.

I used to love the Mario Bros movie, but watching it in retrospect, they were clearly winging it a lot of the time.  It's worth getting the Blu-ray for the making of retrospective.  They talk about how Nintendo gave them the rights and let them do whatever they wanted.  Amazingly, it was gonna be a darker, much more introspective drama about two brothers ; the writer of Rain Man even did a draft at one point... but they ran out of money and then Disney ended up getting involved...

Ben Schwartz is impressively likeable. I’m in.

Who’s playing Knuckles?

I'm a bit confused about how they're going to do this visually. Is it going to be animated, or part live action part CGI, or just live action and the characters are reinterpreted as humans?

I'm thinking Michael Shannon as Shadow.

I'm still trying to get my head around how the fuck this would look.  I can't imagine it being anything but weird and naff. Are they going to make the actors look hedgehoggy or just hint at it by doing stuff with their hair? I can't picture this at all. Everything I'm imagining is hideously ugly.

It already looked wrong when they did this:


Real(ish) humans with giant cartoon animals. Is this going to be the film version of Sonic 2006?

Ugh Christ. The only way I can see them at all getting away with this is just referring to him as Sonic so he's a human Sonic The Hedgehog. He can do the classic Sonic stuff but he's a human man. Or just make the whole thing animated. I can't see it working at all if they do the same kind of thing as they do when they try to make live action Dr Seuss characters, with those disgusting fleshy snouts.

Semi-realistic animal costumes just do not work. No. No. Not having it.

You're right, bur that's exactly the aesthetic I want to see for this. Audibly embarrassed echidna idris Elba with greenscreen fatigue talking to but not quite looking at a Dead eyed Kevin James, under a PERFECTLY even lighting scheme in 60fps, Sean Bean tails ran over by a truck in act 2

In a way it'll be better if it is totally awful than if it's quite good cause then there's something to laugh at for years to come, which is more satisfying than a slightly naff Sonic The Hedgehog movie that was average and competent and not a hot mess. So I now do want it to be really ugly now I think of it

Good shout. I for one eagerly await this future misunderstood cult classic. Go see it in the cinema before the The Room esque hipster twats in sonic costumes yelling and throwing plastic rings at the screen

How could this film possibly be good? The least they could do is make it absolutely batshit insane. That's what they should be aiming for.

Yea cos no actual child fans of sonic exist anymore, they need to make something for us cynical, jaded elder millenial furries who were there from the start. People who thought lasagnacat was the most important cultural event of the millenia so far. I want some cask strength sonic dreams shit, some sort of deviant art fever dream to shock and awe. A raging, turgid snow angel made in the ashes of our childhoods to sweep down on a sick day and give us the wrong kind of cuddles under the covers. You know, a Sonic film.

They should cut their losses and call him HUMAN THE HEDGEHOG whilst maintaining the title SONIC THE HEDGEHOG IN HUMANLAND.

A belated companion piece to the Mario Bros film? Would be oddly fitting.

If a sherrif really teamed up with a talking blue hedghog he'd be relieved from duty and probably sectioned under the mental health act of whatever state he is in.

California? Nah, they'd just tell the sherrif 'stop smoking dat sticky icky icky' while rap gesturing with one hand and firing a gun with the other.

Because they all smoke cannabis and talk like that.

I would love it if they had Dredd style restrictions on budget, and had to base all of this Sonic film inside an apartment block.
