The style guide – basically an art guide for drawing a character in various poses with colors, views, etc. – was leaked for the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog movie. The images first showed up here, so are probably valid: Hamagami / Carroll, Inc. Sega’s mascot has evolved a lot since 1991, but now he’s in the flesh… uh, CGI for the first time on the big screen.

The alleged style guide leaks don’t show much of a surprise, but they do allude to one issue everyone who loves Sonic was complaining about: His eyes. It looks like they went for a more single-eye-looking-design like the classic video games. Though, none of this explains the, uh, plot up on IMDB: A cop helps Sonic escape the government?

Maybe I haven’t played a Sonic game in a few years, but was this EVER the plot?! I guess it’s better than the furry fetish version. Or pregnant Sonic.

THE Kurt Broz is not just a personality for Nerdbot, but he's also the editor-in-chief and a real live scientist! Born on the snowy shores of Lake Erie in good ol' Cleveland, Ohio, Kurt Broz has been there and back again, now residing in sunny Southern California. You can find THE Kurt Broz in cosplay, buying comics, hiking, and even writing for Nerdbot and WLFK Productions. He may be a child of the 80's but he is certainly a man of the world.
