Back in the spring the first trailer for Sonic the Hedgehog movie was launched but received ruthless criticism from fans. Social media reactions slammed Sonic’s human teeth and lack of white gloves, demanding a closer look to the video game incarnation.
Following the backlash, director Jeff Fowler announced that SEGA and Paramount Pictures had taken the criticisms on board and agreed to redesign Sonic, using the release date back from Boxing Day to Valentine’s Day.
At the time, Fowler tweeted: “Thank you for the support. And the criticism.
“The message is loud and clear… you aren’t happy with the design and 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.”
But now a new trailer has launched with the redesign, so what did fans make of it?
