We have a “leak” with all the believability of the Grinch Leak right now, so proceed with the hugest of suspicions. Twitter user @BestInTheGalaxy has shared two images claiming to be from “a friend in Paramount Studios” that allegedly show off the Sonic redesign for the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog movie. These Sonic movie images have an air of plausibility and are certainly more in line with traditional renditions of the character. What do you think of them?

Honestly, in this post-Grinch world, I think these Sonic redesign images are BS. But I haven’t yet located images that are a one-to-one match that could have been used to create these images. Let’s follow Amtrak’s rules here and abide by, “If you see something, say something,” when it comes to debunking rumors.
However, on the off-chance that we are looking at genuine Sonic movie images — I think this will make fans happy. It really does look a lot like video game Sonic with a thicker coat of fur thrown in, which I guess is basically what people wanted. I don’t have a strong opinion on redesigns since I’m much more worried about the actual story content of the Sonic movie. (This movie warrants concern across the board, certainly more than the upcoming Super Mario movie.)
Tell us if you think this Sonic redesign is real, and regardless of that, tell us if you would be happy if it is legitimate.
Oh, and before you go, make sure you cringe in horror at the Halloween costume going around that is seemingly based on Sonic’s original movie design.
