The movie still looks lousy, but that redesign is definitely more like how Sonic should have looked in the first place.
Jim Carrey, meanwhile, continues to seem like the only decent part of this, being actually funny in this trailer.
Though, we now know that this movie is going for the same "Sonic is an alien from another planet" angle that Sonic X went with, which I am okay with, but I would rather that his method of arriving on Earth was a little more like it was in that show (as in, via a Chaos Control accident), rather than what this trailer seems to suggest is "Sonic runs so fast that he opens a portal from his world to ours," which doesn't I'm not a fan of if true.
Has Sonic ever even done something like that in any of the games? As in, running so fast that his speed generated a portal to open up in front of him and which he could jump through to get to a new location, instead of him simply running to get to said new location?
No, if you look closely he's using Rings as portals. Giant rings warping you to other places? Yeah, thats very much part of Sonic lore/gameplay.
