As we know, the Sonic Movie went through a whirlwind of changes during it’s development, so much that it had to be significantly delayed to fix Sonic’s design. While we all got a clean look at the old design of teenaged Sonic, we only ever got to see the “redesigned” version of Baby Sonic… until now.
Back in December, when we first reported baby Sonic, I wondered what kind of nightmare fuel had been in store for us with the original design. Well, it looks like we won’t have to wonder anymore, because the original baby Sonic will be in the movie’s special features!
Twitter user Sleepi_new made the discovery on the Sonic movie’s iTunes page. In the extras section there is a screenshot of what is clearly a different design for Sonic’s younger self, complete with tan-colored gloveless hands and toothy smile. The screenshot shows baby Sonic running through a real environment, something that never happened in the actual movie. This likely means more was changed about the character’s scene than his design.
Unfortunately, I do not have a way of taking screenshots directly off my Apple TV, but feel free to check out a photo I took off my TV with my phone below:

Life was given and taken away in the span of a few hours: reports confirm that YouTuber “Sugar High Score” created Baby Sonic entirely out of cake, icing and maybe even love, only to betray him just as he had begun to observe the world around him.
Step aside, Baby Yoda, because there’s a new cuteness in town! The latest teaser from the Sonic movie’s Japanese twitter account has given us our first glimpse at the long-rumored “baby Sonic.” The teaser features the little blue tike blasting through Green Hill as Sonic Mania’s opening theme, Hyper Potion’s Friends, plays in the background.
