    I'm getting 1980s Super Mario Bros Movie vibes here...

    It's kind of surprising SEGA hasn't already tried to cash in on its Sonic autism fandom with a half-assed movie.

    I heard the real reason Sega invented Sonic in the first place was to compete with Mario. They wanted an in-your-face embodiment of X-TREME 90s marketing that's "WAY PAST COOL." A new fast mascot of the system with "blast processing."

    It's like how they made up Poochy in that one Simpsons episode to revive Itchy and Scratchy.

    I kinda wish Sonic would go back to his home planet like Poochie did. He’s caused enough damage here on Earth.

    He was. Alex Kidd was the former Sega mascot, but Sega needed something more RADICAL and hip with the kids for the then-new genesis. The only other character that could compete was Bubsy and... well...

    Lord knows Nintendo technically beat them with Mario within the first year of the very first game's release!

    Yes, this is exactly why Sonic came into being, he was super fast and the game showed off that the SEGA Genesis could do super-cool fast visuals. Oldsters will remember a lot of the SEGA ads were directly firing shots at Nintendo. They wanted their own Mario-style mascot, but more Xtreme and radical.

    There already was a Sonic movie. It was an OVA that came out in 1996.

    Sonic is like a forced meme while Mario is still mainstream.

    Then the movie's tagline could be "Don't Call Anybody."

    The teaser posters look so incredibly bad. Like lates 80s/early 90s big name property with a low budget cash grab bad. Should be enjoyed by autists everywhere. I mean, they’re the only ones left who actually like Sonic right?

    But no cigar.

    Anybody is the Sonic forced meme to the correct anyone's Mario, you could say. Now, back to our regularly scheduled thread programming.

    Okay, so who wants to bet this is like the Smurfs or the He Man movie and its Sonic lost in our world... but instead of New York its San Fran?

    Probably. Such a cop out and lazy writing. I remember seeing the HeMan movie as a kid and being so disappointed. They didn’t have the budget or imagination to bring Eternia to life.
