All The 'Sonic The Hedgehog' Design Changes They Made For The Live Action Film | Pop Culture Decoded

Pubblicato il 12 nov 2019
In April of this year, Paramount released a trailer for their live-action take on SEGA’s "Sonic The Hedgehog" franchise. Fans hated it. They attempted to make Sonic more “realistic” but ended up creating something fairly disturbing. Due to the backlash, the film’s director, Jeff Fowler, promised fans he would change Sonic’s design to make him more like the iconic character we all know and love. The newly released trailer has received a much warmer response. Watch as we break down the differences between Paramount’s first and second version of "Sonic the Hedgehog."

All The 'Sonic The Hedgehog' Design Changes They Made For The Live Action Film | Pop Culture Decoded


  • Wish they would have did that for the power rangers remake

  • This is our first stance against studios feeding us garbage for the sake of making money

  • That befor one was NOT SONIC IT WAS TERRIBEL

  • Yeah the new version of Sonic is better

  • Paramount looked at the Likes at the 1st Trailer and looked that the trailer had a glorious dislike ratio and Paramount was afraid that it will Bomb hard at the Box Office, so they had to delay the movie for a few months to redesign Sonic.

  • Maybe they considered doing the arms (like the mouth part) but probably looked way off. Besides ive grown up being a huge fan of sonic and honestly never notice the arms were different than in the games but hell its better in the movie

  • Yes i am happy with it just wish they had this one in the fust place why did they ever go with that in the fust place

  • I just can’t stop asking myself “how did they think they were going to get away with the first make??” Just pure laziness

  • But in sonic boom sonic has blue arms

  • Worth the change..I like the improvement, It's how Sonic should look and I'm feeling it.

  • I am way happier with the new sonic😍

  • 😳

  • Yes

  • Yeah the new one is way better and more similar to the game version

  • Yes I'm happy with the new changes to Sonic

  • Much better. I'm happy that they took the public's opinion into consideration.

  • The tails has me dying laughing

  • Yep

  • For everyone that’s saying that other companies don’t listen to comments, par of it is because in cases like this, they have to reanimate a whole movie, which takes a looooooong time and would probably double the time it would take to view the movie in theaters.

  • They had to redesign sonic as what the design he has in sonic boom

  • Thank you lord. I might actually watch it now. They dodged a bullet.

  • Yes


  • This is when changing the animation of your character works.... There are movie that redo their animations and don't work.... *cough* aka Cats

  • Yes

  • Sonic in red pumas did kinda creep me out

  • 2:34 Look sonic's arm in sonic boom

  • At this point we have to appreciate all the animators for their hard work to redesign and reanimate the whole movie. Animation is never easy..

  • I am happy with the new sonic Very

  • They should of gotten Jaleel White to voice sonic, and gotten a fat dr.robuttnik like from the comics, 90s show, video game etc

  • Imagine sonic watching this..... RIP most of the video he got bullied for being a mobian qwq

  • i'm glad.

  • Yes!

  • I love it!👍👍👍😍😍😍☺️☺️🥰🥰

  • The difference between Dr. Pepper and Mr. Pipp

  • Guys answer at 3:35 My answer: Hell Yes I am!

  • omg so happy! it would be funny if it was just a marketing plan xD make Sonic awful (just for trailer) and then "redesing" him

  • I like the new eyes

  • Really the old one scared me I wasn’t gonna watch the movie but now..

  • I never realized that his arms weren't blue IM????

  • 😭😭😭😭😭 THANKS GAWD

  • I like how he used a picture of sonic and a dog kissing to show detail

  • I still think they animated the trailer that way on purpose for media attention

  • Sonic from Sonic boom had blue arms

  • sonic does look more accurate now but the movie itself still looks like wet trash.. besides jim carey.. he never does a bad job.. im predicting a solid 6 or less on imdb from this flopper

  • 2019: Spoonic the Satan's Messed up twin brother 2020: Sonic the Hedgehog


  • Paramount made a "paramount" choice here ... pun intended. Huge improvement on the look. Jim Carrey is an odd decision to me for Dr. Robotnik or Eggman, whichever but may provide some alternate laughs and entertainment for various audiences. The trailer as a whole makes it look fun to watch. Growing up playing the original Sega Genesis games and being a fan I might just go see it myself!

  • You do realize that Sonic doesn’t have any fur. He actually has quills.

  • I like the new one it sooooo cute

  • I don't think the old sonic was that bad

  • I was wondering what I found weird about the other Sonic and once I saw the side by side of The Cat in the Hat I realized they were giving me similar creepy vibes.

  • New Sonic!

  • Amazing!

  • 2019: horrific blue creature 2020:classic sonic

  • Absolutely the changes were better

  • I like it! It’s cute!!! Coming from a fan who has beaten this game over 8 times in childhood! 🙌🏽

  • You're right, the first sonic has KKnees

  • Sonic is Shota

  • Sonic: here comes the boom Guy: how are you not dead Sonic: I HAVE NO IDEA
