'Sonic the Hedgehog' movie trailer, which Paramount released is a huge relief to Sega fans all over the world.
The beloved ’90s video game icon, got the facelift for which the fans have been clamoring for following the horrifying backlash that the original 'Sonic the Hedgehog' movie trailer received.
The re-designed character made his debut with Paramount Pictures in the newly released trailer and fans are more pleased with the popular character's look this time around. When the original trailer was first released in May earlier this year, fans immediately pushed back on the character's look.
After the criticism, movie director Jeff Fowler announced on Twitter that he would make changes, saying both Paramount and Sega were open to changes.
"Thank you for the support," the director wrote on Twitter. "And the criticism. The message is loud and clear… you aren’t happy with the design & you want changes. It’s going to happen. Everyone at Paramount & Sega are fully committed to making this character the BEST he can be… #sonicmovie #gottafixfast".
The new trailer that dropped yesterday shows that Sonic has more Sonic-like proportions with larger eyes, a rounder face, a less human-like mouth… and less teeth. He closely resembles the video game character he is based on.
All the sonic fans now seem impressed given that the character's new look comes with bigger eyes and fewer teeth. In replies to the tweet showing off the new trailer, fans had overwhelmingly positive responses to the redesigned character.
Paramount has pushed the release date back from November to February 14, 2020.
