The Blue Blur, Sonic the Hedgehog, will be making his way to the big screen through a new live-action/animation hybrid film, with the iconic videogame character finding himself stranded in our present-day world and being railroaded into an odd couple friendship with James Marsden’s Tom Wachowski. The duo will then need to team up against Dr. Robotnik (played by Jim Carrey). Mayhem, and of course hilarity, will definitely ensue.
The movie is a bit of a hot topic right now and is met with a lot of resistance over the decision to throw Sonic into a live action world – a resistance that is understandable, given the incompatibilities in art style and given the fact that merely changing Sonic’s arms to blue is usually enough to stir the pot of controversy.
Even so, the production team behind the film is confident that their vision will satisfy fans. In line with this, they have released a new animated teaser poster that you can view below:
