Fans Are Shocked By ‘Ugly Sonic’ Appearance With Dad Bod In New Movie
Do you remember the original live-action Sonic the Hedgehog design? You know that one – the nightmarish pure fuel looking like some kind of scary blue critter with human teeth.
Well, you’re going to be horrified to know that he’s back and this time he has a daddy bod. Check it out:
Featuring the iconic Chipmunk Brothers in their own live-action animated style, viewers couldn’t help but notice the reference to the Sonic snafu from a few years ago.
To refresh your memory, in 2019 SEGA and Paramount Pictures unveiled the first live-action Sonic movie trailer, and fans were horrified by the design of the titular hedgehog.
Social media was quickly filled with memes about the video game character’s bizarre body and disturbing human-looking gnashers.
The backlash was so strong that the producers redesigned the set, even pushing back the film’s release date in order to perfect Blue Blur’s look.
But it seems Disney doesn’t want people to overlook the blunder, because Tic and Tac: Rescue Rangers features a scene in which Dale interacts with a character known as “Ugly Sonic”.
It has all the hallmarks of the original awful design, including those teeth – and they gave him a daddy body to boot.
Sharing a clip of the moment on Twitter, one viewer wrote, “I swear this movie made sonic ugly worse, his nose shouldn’t be so big. Why is he big?
“We’re not talking about this abomination,” another commented, while a third said, “My eyes…just when I thought I’d never have to see this thing again.”
Others, however, enjoyed the cheeky dig, including this person who said, “Honestly one of the best movies I’ve seen in a long time.
“I just finished watching it and I’m glad I saw it before I came to Facebook or Twitter. I had no spoilers and didn’t really know what to expect.
“Ugly Sonic’s appearance was awesome. That alone made this movie worth it.
Here’s a hint: he’s not the free-spirited wild child we remember.
Instead, Pan is a jaded, surly middle-aged man with tufts of chest hair and the five-o’clock shadow to prove it.
