Sonic film comparison

A comparison of Sonic's look from the 2019 trailer (top) and the later version of the trailer (bottom).

Sonic The Hedgehog was supposed to be released in November 2019, but Sonic was supposed to have a different design.

Why It Was Cancelled[]

  1. The release of the first teaser trailer was panned by critics, the public and fans.
  2. Sega, as well as Sonic fans, and his creator were disgusted with the original design.

What If It Wasn't Cancelled[]

  1. It would have been universally lambasted by critics, audiences, review aggregators. Plus all review aggregators would have given it a 0.
  2. The movie would have been such a commercial flop that it would have had to be removed worldwide and never see the light of day.
  3. Sega would have not only banned Paramount from adapting Sega's video games into movies, but prevent them from being partners permanently.
  4. The movie would never been released on VOD or on DVD or on TV.
