Today IGN revealed the First Look at the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog live-action movie releasing next year.
This tease came in the form of a motion poster that showed the Blue Blur running faster than the speed of sound, collecting rings, and stopping to make the final frame and look of the poster.

Speaking to IGN, executive producer Tim Miller said: “That was always Stage 1 of adapting it to what the real world is and what a real animal would be like.
“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.”
Produced by Deadpool director Tim Miller and directed by Jeff Fowler, this film will bring Sonic the Hedgehog into live-action. The titular hedgehog is voiced by Ben Schwartz, and is co-starred by James Marsden and Jim Carrey, who is playing the evil Dr. Robotnik!
Sonic the Hedgehog is set to run into theaters on November 8, 2019.
