So wait a minute. We know the town is called Green Hills, right? It's not... set in Nebraska is it? Because holy fuck, imagine if it turned out that they adapted the old drafts of the Sonic Bible. Will Sonny the Hedgehog have to save his five sisters from Kintobor?

Yup, it's Green Hills, NE. This movie is clearly not taking itself seriously, including ridiculous stuff like hills in Nebraska, the Flat State.

So how is everyone feeling about this movie (now that we are faced with it really happening)?
I am going to be very honest here. I was shocked when I saw that teaser, I was on Discord and Telegram (in groups) when it was made known.
People in groups and in the Discord, basically went crazy, in a non-positive way.

I was, cautiously optimistic, but my optimism is now gone, they're going to ruin the franchise, and I am feeling very sad about that, and how SEGA/SONIC TEAM could allow this to happen.

Ruin the franchise ? We talked about this earlier; if Sonic survived shadow the hedgehog with guns and sonic 06 with bestiality, I'm pretty sure a shitty live action movie isn't gonna do him too much harm.

Well, ruined for me at least, and several of us old folks who were kids back when Sonic Adventure was cool.
Sonic '06 is a game I avoided like the plague... saw the negative reviews and skipped right over it.

I think most of us braced for this the moment a live action movie was announced. Personally I'm numb to shitty Sonic things by now. Hell, there's been horrid stuff since the classic days. Remember Sonic Underground? The furry drama era of the comics? Sure this is on a bigger level but I don't think it will (or even can) damage the franchise as badly as Shadow and 2006 did.

You make a very valid point, and also a nice perspective. Thanks

See, I kinda disagree. The reputation of something like Sonic 06 still requires a bit of interest in videogames to see, such as reading an online review or magazine.
Your average non-gamer would just see "Oh, that's that Sonic guy".

Meanwhile, this movie will be trying to mass-market itself to everyone it can. Parents will be forced to watch this with their kids and then tell their work friends how horrible it was. TV stations will probably trash it. Searching 'Sonic the Hedgehog' on Google images may bring up more Movie images than Game images like with Resident Evil for a while...

That's my take anyway and I hope I am wrong as heck.

Still seeing this movie Day 1 though, after a good round of Rum & Coke. This trainwreck is going to be the highlight of the year.

Exactly what @Sir_mihael said. In the past, only gamers got to see the bad games. Now the ENTIRE POPULATIONS get to see the bad of Sonic. I am very concerned

The way I see it, most of those people who aren't familiar with games wouldn't care about Sonic either way. Even if the movie was CG, kept the normal design, or even was decent, none of those parents dragged there by their kids would really have a different reaction. I'd compare it to a bad comic book movie. Shitty, but not franchise destroying.
