Did The Sonic the Hedgehog Movie Redesign Just Get Leaked?

Did The Sonic the Hedgehog Movie Redesign Just Get Leaked?

The original reveal of ‘Live Action’ Sonic the Hedgehog had an …explosive response.

The film’s director Jeff Fowler took to Twitter and said the following;

“Thank you for the support. And the criticism. The message is loud and clear… you aren’t happy with the design & you want changes. It’s going to happen. Everyone at Paramount & Sega are fully committed to making this character the BEST he can be… #sonicmovie #gottafixfast“

What came next was the confirmation of a character redesign, and a push back to the release date. Today, people are murmuring about what could potentially be a leak of the redesign – seeing the blue blur look a little more ….Cartoonesque? Take a squiz:

People are diabolical with their photoshops nowadays, and for each aspect of the above image that makes me feel it’s fake (the ears don’t match!) – there is at least one or two aspects of it that might suggest accuracy. For example, the users twitter account seems to be followed by the official Sega twitter – or something, who knows how twitter works.

Apparently it’s leaked by ‘a friend who works at Paramount’ – obviously the uncle who works at Nintendo was not available.

By all means, chow down on the biggest grain of salt you can find – we may well need to wait until 2020 to see the official unveiling.
