From Worst to Best: Why the New Sonic Movie Design Might Be the Best Sonic Design Ever

Early last year, the world saw the first trailer for the Sonic the Hedgehog movie and we got our first look at what the blue blur would finally look like on the silver screen. To say that fans, non-fans, and society in general had a very negative reaction to what was shown onscreen would be a gross understatement. From his small eyes, his wide head, pasty-white hands with clawed fingers and human-like proportions, Sonic looked hideous. Practically a monster.

Our Favourite Sonic Movie Memes on Twitter

When the original trailer for the Sonic Movie debuted in April this year, there was… a lot of material to work with, let’s just say.

The answer is “yes, absolutely!” Sit back and grab some popcorn (or a chili dog!), because here are our favourites we’ve found on Twitter: Continue reading Our Favourite Sonic Movie Memes on Twitter
