Finally, the first official trailer for Paramount Pictures’ live-action adaptation of Sonic the Hedgehog is here for all to see. All of the leaks were correct, as Sonic looks very strange sporting human-esque hands, eyes, and pretty much everything else. In the trailer, we get to see Jim Carrey as Dr. Robotnik and Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation) as Sonic himself.
To be completely honest, the trailer doesn’t look as bad as we initially thought it was going to. Sonic looks exactly like a live-action version of him would look like, and Robotnik seems to bring the comedy thanks to Carrey’s goofy lines.
While this live-action adaptation of the famous video game character doesn’t look as fleshed out as say, Detective Pikachu, the movie doesn’t look completely horrific… right? Well, how about we go on Twitter and check out other folks reactions to the Blue Blur. Let’s see what we got here… oh wait… yup; the internet hates it –just what we thought.
Looks like I’m not the only one who finds Sonic’s human teeth very disturbing…

Hey! Don’t hate on the Sonic fans! Sonic Mania was a very good game.
It looks like Sonic fans are getting the movie they deserve.

What better song is there to represent the Blue Blur?
Pop Quiz; Whenever you think of #SonicTheHedgehog what song do you associate with it?
Green Hill Zone, Seven Rings in Hand, or even the Sonic Hero’s theme?
Whatever you though is incorrect because, it’s clearly Gangsta’s Paradise. #SonicMovie pic.twitter.com/F3jvibxP2m

That ring effect was pretty cool.
As a huge fan of Jumanji, I feel attacked.

I don’t recommend doing this. How about just not watching it?

Is this the Portal sequel we’ve been waiting for?

It seems that Sonic is naked but he still makes sure to wear socks…

Jim Carrey will carry this movie –just you wait.
I kinda respect that, after years of attempting serious roles, they uncorked The Old Jim Carrey for the fucking Sonic Movie pic.twitter.com/SM6ZMig6Jv

What if Tails makes an appearance? He’ll probably look just like this if so.
Yea, this looks way scarier.
This kid is very upset.
You can believe whatever you want but just look at the eyes.

Wow. That’s how they came up with the idea of giving him human teeth.

I feel ya girl.
Sonic ’06 is still pretty bad.
That’s uhh… a lot of missiles.
Anyways, we can’t wait until Detective Pikachu comes out!
