Sega and Paramount Pictures have unveiled Sonic the Hedgehog’s new character redesign, following intense criticism of his authentic, awful look.
Let’s have a look:
Sonic the Hedgehog’s authentic movie design was first revealed final December – and all the things felt incorrect. First we had been handled to the hedgehog’s silhouette, then his nightmarish legs. Fans weren’t joyful.
In March this yr, Sonic’s creator chipped in. “Is this a Sonic movie?” Yuji Naka tweeted.
In May, we noticed the Sonic the Hedgehog movie’s first teaser trailer – a montage of X-Men’s dead-eyed James Marsden, the now-fully-revealed CGI Sonic monstrosity and Jim Carrey as Doctor Robotnik, all of which result in a hilarious joke about little one abduction. Criticism was swift and damning.
“The message is loud and clear…” Sonic’s movie director Jeff Fowler admitted a number of days later, promising modifications can be made. The movie’s delay from this month to February 2020 was introduced shortly after.
Sonic the Hedgehog will launch on Valentine’s Day – 14th February – 2020.
