We had our first look at the new live-action Sonic the Hedgehog movie earlier this week with a mysterious poster that showed off a beefier silhouette, but not much more. Fans didn't really take too well to the live-action take on the beloved character, including the producer of the classic Sega games. Now a new poster is making its rounds on the Internet showing off a more relaxed Sonic alongside Guardians of the Galaxy's Chris Pratt.
You can check that out below:
Rumour: Check out this internal poster of the #SonicMovie that was allegedly made roughly a year ago. A sheet detailing possible candidates for the roles of Sonic and Officer Tom, assumedly prior to the signing of Marsden and Schwartz, was also seen here.

The same poster has been posted by Twitter user Wario64, who is known for breaking accurate news. Keep in mind, this poster -- from the looks of the casting choice featured -- is incredibly outdated if legit. The previous looks we have seen feature a much taller Sonic, though this does appear to be from a year ago. Whether it is a legitimate prototype or a fan creation remains to be seen, though Paramount has not commented on the latest poster.
Just like with previous looks, fans had a lot to say:

This looks like they tried to mix all Sonic's into one. Hyper realistic (Hollywood), Classic (chubby, cute), Modern (green eyes), and even Boom (blue arms arms, textured spines). :/— 👿miss😼kitties👿 (@choko_kitties) December 13, 2018
LMAO if that’s the final sonic design. The sonic fanbase owes this boi an apology— ToonexMedia (@ToonexPersonnel) December 13, 2018
THEY WERE GONNA CAST TOM HOLLAND AS SONIC???? AS IF I WASNT BLESSED FROM HIM PLAYING SPIDER MAN— JingleSpheres07 (@BlueSpheres07) December 13, 2018
I don’t hate it.— Jarryd - Sally Amaki best Seiyuu🐨🦋🤣 (@JMotion0) December 13, 2018
But after so many years of the mono-eye, this kinda looks like he’s just frowning super hard, but at the same time it doesn’t???
It’s weird, but I don’t hate it.
It almost feels like the bad posters were intentional to soften this design’s full reveal.
Sonic the Hedgehog arrives in theaters on November 8, 2019.
