A new Sonic movie trailer released with a ‘less terrifying-looking Sonic’ and it actually looks good
Sometimes things from your childhood should just stay that way — Like maybe your favourite cartoon or video game characters growing up??
…We prefer they not become part of your worst childhood nightmares.
Enter the live-action Sonic The Hedgehog remake.
Originally, they went with the idea that making Sonic look as real as possible would be amazing for the viewer/fan from back in the day — Heck, it actually worked for Warner Bros. with their Pokemon film Detective Pikachu!
…But giving human eyes, teeth, fingers, & feet to the classic blue Hedgehog gave out a disastrous first impression from millions of fans to director Jeff Fowler, who took both the praise & criticism with open arms to ensure they make a movie the fans will love when it hits theatres in 2020.
Thank you for the support. 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 🔧✌️
