‘Sonic The Hedgehog’s director vows to redesign Sonic after severe online backlash

Recently released trailer of Sonic The Hedgehog drew a lot of criticism on social media with respect to the appearance of the central character as it didn’t match the standards of the fans. Sonic The Hedgehog director Jeff Fowler has vowed to make changes after fans vented their spleen over the design and the appearance of the film’s titular character. Sonic tries to navigate the complexities of life on Earth with his newfound best friend — a human named Tom Wachowski. They must soon join forces to prevent the evil Dr Robotnik from capturing Sonic and using his powers for world domination.
“The message is loud and clear,” Fowler posted on Twitter on Thursday, “You aren’t happy with the design and you want changes. It’s going to happen. Everyone at Paramount and Sega are fully committed to making this character the BEST he can be…#sonicmovie #gottafixfast.” The visual effects are provided by Industrial Light & Magic (ILM), Blur Studio, Digital Domain and the Moving Picture Company (MPC).

Hardly has it ever happened in the history of cinema where a CGI character has had to been redesigned post the dissatisfaction expressed on social media.

We hope the character turns out to be much more pronounced and proper as per the audiences’ expectation.
