The live-action Sonic the Hedgehog movie’s original designs for Sonic made fans groan at how bad it is. And then, the producers did what fans did not expect and delayed the movie so they can please the fans and redesign Sonic. And recently, executive producer Tim Miller has talked to Hollywood entertainment website, Variety, about the redesign. He says that he believes that the redesign “will please fans”.
“Look, I was with fans and so was Jeff. When the s–t hit the fan, I went over there and said, “The most important thing to do, man, is say, ‘I f–ked up,’” Miller said. “He’d already sent a tweet out an hour before I got there. He’s a good man. It was exactly the right way to handle that. The fans have a voice in this too. There’s a right way to listen”. Miller also added “This is a franchise, and it has to be great.”
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! Paramount previously announced Sonic the Hedgehog will premiere from November 15, 2019 to November 8, 2019 in the United States. This delay gives the animators a bit more time to work on that new design.
As for the movie itself, it will star Ben Schwartz as Sonic (voice role) and Jim Carrey as Doctor Robotnik. James Marsden, Tika Sumpter, Natasha Rothwell, Neal McDonough and Adam Pally will also be part of the cast as well.
