Another alleged leak has come out for the Sonic redesign in the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog movie, and it corroborates the previous leak. Again, the leak comes from completely out of nowhere on Twitter, originating with user @pablothinghouse, but the user then took down the image and later reuploaded it. In the interim, the user below had taken a zoomed in snippet of the original image, which spread across social media. In any case, even the original poster claims not to have taken the photo in question, so its origin is still unclear.
And there it is, everyone. pic.twitter.com/dJB1zt2tkv

At this point, either fakers are getting good at matching Sonic redesign details with each other with their Photoshopped images — which is entirely possible — or the Sonic movie leaks are genuine. Reception has been exceedingly positive to this revised look, with Sonic having a more classic body shape and, most importantly, gloves. (I don’t know why that’s important. It just is, apparently.)
The voice actor for Sonic in Latin America recently stated that a new trailer for the Sonic the Hedgehog movie should be coming out within a few weeks, so if the Sonic redesign is genuine, we should be receiving confirmation of it soon enough.
