Sonic The Hedgehog Director Claims Changes Will Be Made To Design Of The Main Character
The known studio Paramount and legendary gaming company Sega released the first trailer for Sonic the Hedgehog movie on the 30th of April. The film stars the beloved Sonic, a blue hedgehog who is bestowed with the power of superspeed. While the character has been a part of various video games and animated series in the past, to the creator’s surprise, the trailer for the movie was met with disappointing glares and negative reviews.
The fans of the games and animated series made on the beloved character demanded a change in the look and design of Sonic. In a recent tweet, the director of the movie Jeff Fowler claimed that the studio will improve and enhance the design of Sonic before the film is released in November.
Sonic the Hedgehog
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
The announcement was made on microblogging website Twitter as mentioned above. The director of Sonic the Hedgehog movie, Jeff Fowler thanked the fans of the Sonic franchise for their support and criticism surrounding the trailer. He also claimed the Paramount studio and Sega have decided to change the design of the main character as requested by many fans. Unfortunately, it is not known what changes will be made to the characters, but reports are rife the studio will focus on making Sonic less humanoid.
The storyline of Sonic the Hedgehog movie depicts Sonic, who is voiced by Ben Schwartz, trying to save the earth from the evil Dr Robotnik (who is played by Jim Carrey) in association with a policeman (played by James Marsden). The trailer is set against the legendary “Gangsta’s Paradise” soundtrack, which would have actually enhanced the trailer hadn’t it been for the kid-hedgehog combo leading the movie. Sonic The Hedgehog is scheduled to make its way to movie theatres on November 8, 2019. However, because of the changes, the release date may be further pushed into the future.
