Some fans are looking forward to the Sonic the Hedgehog movie but nobody likes the appearance of the character — FGC reactions

The first trailer for the Sonic the Hedgehog movie was released earlier today. Needless to say, the reception for the trailer has been... well, mostly negative.

We've taken the time to gather up reactions from the fighting game community. Some priority has been given to some of the Sonic fans that play the Super Smash Bros. series.

Unsurprisingly, nobody really seems to like Sonic's appearance. Not even the hardcore Sonic fans. This is probably due to the fact that he's essentially not a cyclops where his two giant eyes are connected.

Other than that, there are a few individuals that have expressed some hype or mild interest in seeing the movie. Of course, there have been some impressions about Jim Carrey's role as Dr. Robotnik as well.

And there have also been some outright disgust or depression for the state of the Sonic franchise. The trailer certainly gives off a very "unique" feeling towards the anthropomorphic hedgehog.

Although most of these are in the form of Tweets, Tempo|ZeRo released a video that showcases his live reactions as he watched the trailer for the first time.
