If you’ve been sleeping under a purple rock in Green Hill Zone, here’s an update for you: the latest trailer for the Sonic Movie is out, and it features a fully redesigned Sonic! On top of that, a long-held suspicion that a certain well-known artist in the Sonic community was involved has finally been confirmed!
Honored to have been brought in to lead the design on the new Movie Sonic. Working with Jeff and the modelers, riggers, texture/fur artists and animators in LA, London, and Vancouver was a thrill I'll never forget. #SonicMovie pic.twitter.com/HhcVIxAhXB

TYou might know Mr Hesse for his work on Sonic Mania with the opening and ending cutscenes as well as the charming and colorful mini-series “Sonic Mania Adventures” and “Team Sonic Racing,” but his work in the Sonic series has reached a new peak with his involvement in the upcoming film. He tweeted about his experience some time after the trailer dropped to confirm his role:
Working with Jeff and the modelers, riggers, texture/fur artists and animators in LA, London, and Vancouver was a thrill I’ll never forget.
If you love the new look for Sonic and are on social media, be sure to give your kudos to Tyson (as well as the rest of the artists) for working very hard to make it happen.
The Sonic Movie premieres on the 14th of February, 2020 next year.
