Sonic the Hedgehog is a live-action animated film based on the SEGA video game franchise.

The film stars Ben Schwartz as Sonic the Hedgehog and Jim Carrey as Sonic’s nemesis Dr. Ivo Robotnik, alongside James Marsden as Tom Wachowski, Tika Sumpter, Natasha Rothwell, Adam Pally, and Neal McDonough.

It is being written by Patrick Casey, Josh Miller and Oren Uziel and directed by Jeff Fowler in his directorial debut.

There has been some redesigns on the character to make it work in the film, but the poster has yet to show us his eyes.

“I don’t think SEGA was entirely happy with the eye decision, but these sorts of things you go, ‘It’s going to look weird if we don’t do this.’ But everything is a discussion, and that’s kind of the goal, which is to only change what’s necessary and stay true to the rest of it,” said Miller. “He’s not going to feel like a Pixar character would because I don’t think that’s the right aesthetic to make it feel like part of our world.”

There was also lots of discussion as to how best portray the speed of Sonic.

“The first thing you need to do is put limits on it. If you can do anything, nothing is special. For me, it’s always about keeping it grounded and keeping it realistic,” said Miller. “We had some time to figure out the speed: What it looks like, what it feels like for a character to do that and how it relates to our world. It took a little trial and error, but that’s animation in figuring out what the effect looks like and what it does to the rest of the world around it. The speed changes over time because he evolves, because he can’t do everything at the beginning of the movie. It’s finding the visual language and figuring out how it’s going to evolve over time.”

The film is scheduled for a November 8, 2019 release.

The first poster has been released and you can see it below.
