Remember Dr Robotnik? The portly Sonic the Hedgehog villain with enormous whiskers? If you don’t there’ll be little use looking at Jim Carrey’s well-groomed portrayal of the baddie in the new live-action trailer.
However, while Carrey only appears to be wearing Eggman cosplay, the sneak peek of his eccentric performance marks his first major comedy role in a film since the Dumb and Dumber sequel.
While Carrey is enough to get some fans excited, most have spotted a major problem with the trailer: Sonic himself. Voiced by Ben Schwartz (Jean-Ralphio from Parks and Recreation), the lightning-quick blue hedgehog looks weird. Very weird.
Not our words (although we’re thinking the same), but those of users that have shared their thoughts – and a lot of confusion – on Twitter.
*thinks* does it look weird… but on the other hand.. I- What is this again?
So the Sonic movie looks awful then. How could they get the character design SO wrong? Eyes too small & wrong shape, human limb dimensions look weird, shoes too small, blue instead of tan arms… and too furry. He's not a cute kitten/chipmunk hybrid. #urgh#Sonic#SonicMoviepic.twitter.com/s0r25zLacw
This screenshot gets even worse when you realize that Sonic has darker hair around his mouth, making it look like he somehow has facial hair despite being almost all fur. You're welcome #SonicMoviepic.twitter.com/hfNxU0OVkt
