Sonic's original character designer shares a drawing of movie Sonic, says he's 'worried' about the design

I'm worried too

Naoto Ohshima is the original character designer for Sonic the Hedgehog. He created the classic Sonic art style that fans still love and appreciate to this day. Mr. Ohshima has created the artwork above, which is his quick take on the design seen in the upcoming movie. He also offered the following statement.

So far, various Sonics have appeared. I loved all Sonics. I saw a trailer of Sonic's movie. I was expecting adults to have fun too. I am worried.

Nintendo dodged a bullet by not going with the Sony deal. I am still worried for the Mario movie being cheapened and using pop music more than I am for an unnecessary redesign however.

I can see it now the opening of the movie is gonna start with a rap/pop version of the SMB theme being sung by Pitbull.

Nintendo is a LOT more anal about how their properties are handled than Sega is about Sonic (nowadays, anyways). Plus, Miyamoto is apparently deeply involved. If there's something he doesn't feel is faithful to the franchise, he'll throw a fit until it's how he wants it. I'm really not worried.

Since when has Nintendo ever let others screw up their IP?

The movie will do good and Nintendo will make sure it stays that way.
