Oh my goodness! Our first look at Sonic the Hedgehog from the forthcoming live-action movie is the stuff of nightmares.
Even with the knowledge that this is the very first, and not particularly clear, look at the titular character from the Sonic the Hedgehog movie, my first instinct is – KILL IT WITH FIRE!!!
Sweet Jesus! What is this horror? Debuted over at IGN, this is our first hint of what to expect from the in-production Sonic the Hedgehog film.

It certainly looks like significant changes have been made to the look of the iconic SEGA figurehead. More human-like in the body and distinctly furry, this Sonic looks a lot like a beg-headed sports team mascot rather than the video game favourite we know and love.
The film will follow a familiar plot with Sonic finding himself in the present-day world and at odds with Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey). Ben Schwartz will voice the speedy blue hedgehog, a CG character in a real-world setting.
‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ is scheduled for a November 8th release in the U.S. whilst the U.K. will wait until December 26th.
