The Sonic the Hedgehog Movie trailer dropped on April 30th and was met with heavy backlash, particularly regarding Sonic's design. However, it would seem the criticism has not fallen on deaf ears, as film director, Jeff Fowler, responded with this:
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 ????✌️— Jeff Fowler (@fowltown) May 2, 2019
What those changes will be and how drastic they'll be, we're still not sure. Sonic HQ will keep you updated as it happens.
