Sonic Movie

An advertising agency Hamagami/Carroll, Inc. briefly released a branding deck for Paramount Pictures’ upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog film which is scheduled to premiere in United States theaters on November 8. In this deck revealed a character design of what appears to be a furry Sonic.

As of this time, the site is no longer accessible and it is not confirmed if this will be the final character design for the upcoming Hollywood film.

In the case of Sonic’s fur, this was previously mentioned by Executive producer Tim Miller saying that the character’s quills are different from the quills of real-life hedgehogs.

“It would be weird and it would feel like he was running around nude if he was some sort of otter-like thing. It was always, for us, fur, and we never considered anything different. It’s part of what integrates him into the real world and makes him a real creature.” Miller said,

On the case of Sonic’s shoes, producer Neal Moritz said the following.

“We looked at every different variation of what shoes he’s worn and we’re trying to pay homage to that and also make it current and present day in what we think a Sonic of today would wear.”


The Sonic the Hedgehog film was originally scheduled to be released in the United States on November 15, 2019, but Paramount Pictures moved it to November 8 instead. The film is also scheduled to premiere on November 28, 2019, in Australia and on December 26, 2019, in the United Kingdom.  In Japan, the movie is titled as Sonic the Movie and as of this time, the premiere date has not been announced. It will be directed by Jeff Fowler and it will be his first time in directing a film.


Sonic will be voiced by Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation, DuckTales). Other confirmed cast in the film includes Jim Carrey (Ace Venture: Pet Detective, The Truman Show) as Robotnik, James Marsden (X-Men), and Tika Sumpter.

Although Sonic the Hedgehog hasn’t been released yet, many fans have shared their mixed opinions for this upcoming adaptation. With some Hollywood adaptations of popular Japanese franchises in the past didn’t really receive well, we can only hope for the best.
