Another new image of Sonic’s updated design in the upcoming live-action film has potentially been leaked.
The live-action movie of Sonic the Hedgehog was initially scheduled for this upcoming Friday, on Nov. 8. However, after the release of the first official trailer in April, the film was hit by significant resistance from fans. The primary complaint from fans and critics was towards Sonic’s design in the movie; many felt he looked terrible in the motion picture, had a lean body and white fur instead of gloves on his hand. His human-looking teeth were also a significant source of mockery and ended up becoming a meme.
The criticism was so bad that the director later revealed that the film was being postponed to February. The director promise to redesign Sonic, which suggests that the redesign is the main reason for the postponement.
Though any official news concerning the Sonic movie has been sparse since the delay, multiple images online have been spreading. The images are supposed to be Sonic’s new leaked design, which looks closer to the character’s appearance in the video games. His body proportions match more closely to his video game counterpart, and he has gloves.

It was hard to determine if the leaks are real, but there does appear to be enough evidence to imply that there is some validation to the leaks thanks to Twitter user Sneedy.
Sneedy shared a new image of the updated Sonic design, and it has some small differences from the other leaked images; for instance, Sonic’s fur is more realistic. Nonetheless, the new image matches very closely to the other leaks.
While Sonic’s leaked design for the movie appears more and more likely as the days go by, we should remind readers to be skeptical towards all leaks. Until anything is revealed officially, people should take everything with a grain of salt.
The live-action Sonic the Hedgehog movie is currently scheduled to release on Feb. 20, 2020.
