Before starting, there is some spoiler from the first movie. The first Sonic movie went through a lot of stages of development.
This mostly due to the massive fan backlash of the look of Sonic that looked nothing like the blue hedgehog we know and love which they later changed and was delayed due to the designer having to restart the design of the character.
In the end, it turned out the delay was worth it. With the final character taking a lot of inspiration from the core material and turning out great. It’s arguably still one of the best adaptations of a video game into a movie.
It was revealed at the end of the movie that Sonic’s friend would appear in a future movie through a Marvel-like end credit scene. The scene showed off what Tails would look like in the upcoming film.
Waiting for Knuckles
After this, fans like me were waiting for the big reveal of another friend of Sonic from the games; Knuckles. That did get some tease at the start of the first film, but apart from that, we haven’t seen much of Knuckles until now.
In a set photo, there have been some statue-like figures leaked. These being used to set where they would stand. The figures of Sonic and Tail look like how they were designed in the film, and with that confirmed, Knuckles’ design.
What does Knuckles look like?
It looks like all of these characters are designed from the video game design. There doesn’t seem to be any outlandish changes like in the original designs. Am I the only one that wonders what the original design was for both Knuckles and Tails after seeing the original Sonic one?
