Earlier this week the first trailer for Sonic the Hedgehog hit the internet and was ruthlessly slammed by fans. While many were pleased to see a return to Jim Carrey’s ‘90s comedy roots with his take on Dr Robotnik, the CGI Sonic was criticised mercilessly. A sea of social media reactions were unhappy with Sonic’s human teeth and his lack of white gloves. While others compared it to the terrible Super Mario Bros movie.
But now the director, Jeff Fowler has announced that SEGA and Paramount Pictures have taken the criticisms on board and will redesign Sonic.
He 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.”
