Earlier this year, “Sonic the Hedgehog” live-action movie was met with major backlash for its poor design.
Director Jeff Fowler later released a statement saying, “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 and Sega are fully committed to making this character the BEST he can be.”
Long time fans hated that the studio used human elements to depict the iconic game character. Thanks to a Twitter user, we now have a better look at what Paramount Pictures have been cooking up ever since they went into hiding.
2 new promotional photos have apparently leaked, revealing a new, improved look of our blue, furry friend. Instead of a humanoid figure, the redesigned Sonic is closer to the cartoon look – with white gloves and footwear.

Although these images look legit, fan designs are pretty impressive these days. We’ll know for sure if these redesigns are legit when the new trailer drops.
“Sonic the Hedgehog” is slated for release on 14th February 2020. The film stars Jim Carrey, James Marsden, Ben Schwartz, Adam Pally, Neal McDonough, and Natasha Rothwell.
