Sonic the Hedgehog movie director Jeff Fowler has promised a redesign of the blue super hero after reception from the audience was less than accommodating after theatrical trailer release this week.
In his own words, here’s what Fowler said about it in a tweet:
“Thank you for the support,” said Fowler. “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.”
This isn’t the first time fans took issue with the new live-action version of Sonic. When the first look of the lightning fast hedgehog came out in December, people immediately criticized Sonic’s sculpted calves.
Sonic the Hedgehog follows the (mis)adventures of Sonic as he navigates the complexities of life on Earth with his newfound – human – best friend Tom Wachowski (James Marsden). Sonic and Tom join forces to try and stop the villainous Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey) from capturing Sonic and using his immense powers for world domination. Fowler directs from a script by Patrick Casey, Josh Miller and Oren Uziel, story by Casey and Miller. The film is slated for a November 15 release.

We are looking forward to seeing what happens with the movie and the next draft of Sonic’s character.
