It Looks Like Sonic Will Drive an SUV in the Upcoming Movie

Sonic Vroom.

Filming for the upcoming live-action sonic movie is well underway, which means that set images have started to leak online. They show a number of things: James Marsden standing around in a jacket looking bored, crew members playing on their phones looking bored, oh and what appears to be Sonic driving a beat-up SUV through the streets of San Francisco.

In the set photos, an actor in a very green bodysuit, presumably representing Sonic, is shown driving a slightly less green SUV around San Francisco, in what looks to be one of the movie’s action pieces. It’s all completely bizarre, though a live action Sonic movie was always going to be, let’s be honest.

Since the movie was first announced, fans have understandably raised a few questions. Namely, how is Sonic going to be portrayed in a live action movie? The answer it seems, is with a ton of green screen, and a strange metal contraption featuring two shiny balls positioned next to two tiny leather bean bags.

We’ll have to wait until the movie comes out to see if it is indeed Sonic in the SUV, though it could be any number of CGI Sonic critters as well. The live action Sonic movie launches in 2019 and stars Parks and Recreation’s Ben Schwartz as the voice of Sonic the Hedgehog. James Marsden will also be along for the ride as a hapless highway cop who befriends the blue blur. Of course, there’s also Jim Carrey as Dr Robotnik as well, which is definitely something to look forward to.
