Sonic de film
Sonic The Hedgehog-film komt uit in november 2019 en hier volgen een paar opmerkingen van het exclusieve IGN-interview met het team achter deze nieuwe look.
“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.”
“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,” producer Neal Moritz
“I don’t think SEGA was entirely happy with the eye decision, but these sorts of things you go, ‘It’s going to look weird if we don’t do this.’ But everything is a discussion, and that’s kind of the goal, which is to only change what’s necessary and stay true to the rest of it,” said Miller. “He’s not going to feel like a Pixar character would because I don’t think that’s the right aesthetic to make it feel like part of our world.”
“The first thing you need to do is put limits on it. If you can do anything, nothing is special. For me, it’s always about keeping it grounded and keeping it realistic,” said Miller. “We had some time to figure out the speed: What it looks like, what it feels like for a character to do that and how it relates to our world. It took a little trial and error, but that’s animation in figuring out what the effect looks like and what it does to the rest of the world around it. The speed changes over time because he evolves, because he can’t do everything at the beginning of the movie. It’s finding the visual language and figuring out how it’s going to evolve over time.”
“Obviously the poster can only show so much. … That’s a hint at what we’re hoping to accomplish, but I think people are going to see things they’ve probably never seen before in trying to represent speed in this movie,” said Moritz. “We’ve worked so closely with the people at SEGA who are kind of the gatekeepers of Sonic to make sure we’re lockstep. We’re trying to make something that’s for today that fans of different versions will love as well.”
Nou, we zullen gewoon moeten afwachten en zien hoe het vorm zal krijgen. Niet anders dan met de Detective Pikachu-film … er zullen mensen zijn die het leuk vinden en er een hekel aan hebben. Maar Sonic is simpelweg meer een icoon dan zelfs Pikachu dus … verwacht zeker enige terugslag.
