Reaction to Sonic the Hedgehog trailer has been mixed. One fact most have agreed on is the design for the title character— isn’t good. The moment the trailer hit some fans went to meme the heck out of the various images of the character in the trailer to even more horrific effect (see the picture above for most terrifying one). Some even touched the design to make them look more on par to actually looking like the character akin to what Warner Bros. did with Pokemon for Detective Pikachu (which is out next week).
It’s quite rare to see an overwhelming fan criticism possibly right the ship, and it looks like it might be the case here. The film’s director, Jeff Fowler tweeted this:
So there you have it, with six months till the film’s November release Sonic will have a completely different design. Will it be more akin to what he looked like in video games or will it be even more frightening than what we originally got? Regardless, fans have spoken, and the minds behind this movie have listened.
We’ll find out when Sonic the Hedgehog runs into theaters in November.
