Looking at the photo above, one thing is immediately clear: Sonic has some muscles! I guess he has been hitting the gym and not chomping down on chili dogs. Is the Werehog from Sonic Unleashed making his film debut? Whatever the case may be, Sonic looks terrifying.

It also appears that Sonic the Hedgehog will premiere on November 08, 2019. Looks like the only thing not going fast is this movie’s production.
