Fans of Sonic The Hedgehog Movie would have to wait until 2020 before they can finally see the film. Paramount Pictures officially pushed back the film so proper edits can be made to the titular character. News of a character redesign was announced earlier this month, following major fan backlash towards the film’s design team after the official trailer premiered.
Details such as Sonic’s teeth, “humanized” eye structure, white hands in place of his signature white gloves and even the furry CGI appearance overall have been relentlessly clowned on social media. However, according to the Twitter account of Sonic‘s director Jeff Fowler (seen above), the new release date is now set for February 14, 2020, giving the team three extra months to fix their missteps and utilize “a little more time to make Sonic just right” as Fowler puts it.
