UPDATE: Director Jeff Fowler announced on Twitter that Paramount Pictures has delayed the release of Sonic the Hedgehog by three months, following backlash from the Blue Blur’s design. The three-month delay will allow the visual effects team to work on the character’s redesign based on some of the suggestions made by fans and other artists.

Sonic the Hedgehog will now arrive on February 14, 2020.

Original Story (May 2, 2019): Following a slew of criticism, the upcoming Sonic The Hedgehog live-action film movie is set to receive a re-design.

Responding to the negative response that dominated the Internet, director Jeff Fowler took to Twitter to reveal plans to improve the look of the movie. Fowler notes that Sega and Paramount Pictures are both “fully committed” to making the big screen adaptation of the character “the BEST he can be.” Although the director did not reveal exactly what was going to be done, it is assumed that they will be reworking the CG to help Sonic match the look fans are familiar with and remove the human-like mouth seen in the trailer.

Stay tuned for more details as the story develops.
