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 🔧✌️
Unsurprisingly, the lanky, creepily human-toothed Sonic, with “realistic” eyes did not sit well with fans of the game series or people that can, y’know, see. I believe the argument for his design is that the creators wanted him to look like he fit in the real world, but I would counter that with the glory that is the upcoming Detective Pikachu movie.
Sonic the Hedgehog is a weird thing to try make a realistic movie from anyway; just embrace the rotund little speed-hog with his big feet and uni-eyes. While we’re fixing things, could we maybe not use Gansta’s Paradise in a trailer for a movie about an alien hedgehog that goes fast? Cool.
Spare a thought for the poor animators, this film is meant to be out 8 November.
