Did anyone else find the Owl mom's inclusion in the movie a bit weird? Seems kind of odd to create this brand new character who's never been in any Sonic media. I wonder if the movie was originally going in a different direction when they had that "ugly Sonic" design. The photorealistic owl definitely looks like it was made back during the "ugly Sonic" phase.

Since she looks rather "realistic" in comparison to Sonic, it looks like something from before the change, like those images of lizards, cept she was kept in.

Well, I suppose they had to explain Sonic somehow since Sonic Team never gave us a real backstory for him. (And after establishing that Eggman's granddad made a similar hedgehog long before Sonic was born, it does raise LOTS of questions.)

It is pretty odd they made her like a normal owl and not like a Sonic character. Especially when the echidnas are so spot on.

@Endgame That reminds me of “Omochao the Evil Mastermind” on the SA2B board.

Maybe the Owl’s design was a holdover from the old art style for Sonic. Or maybe the sequel will give backstory that she’s from another world, too.
