Paramount listens to fans and promises to change Sonic’s design for live-action Sonic the Hedgehog movie
Fans have been really vocal at how they hated Sonic’s design for the live-action Sonic the Hedgehog movie. And the criticisms were so loud that it forced Paramount to change the design. In a tweet, the movie’s director, Jeff Fowler, says they are now working on fixing the iconic video game character’s design for the movie.
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 🔧✌️

Gotta Fix Fast indeed! Anyway, here is the old design which inspired memes blasting it:
Fans mostly criticized Sonic’s fur, eyes, and teeth, and going as far as saying that the design really looks creepy. And with fans actually being this vocal about the design, the movie’s staff just had to change it. Thanks internet!
