Sonic the Hedgehog might just finally be looking the way fans prefer. After the initial trailer for the speedy blue mammal’s leap to the big screen was heavily criticized for the way Sonic looked, the creators behind the film completed an entire redesign of Sonic.
Now, with the newest trailer, we finally have a look at what the delay produced, and it’s much better than the original. Check it out below.
When the original trailer for Sonic the Hedgehog dropped back in April, it was met with heavy criticism over what Sonic actually looked like. It was bad. The little hedgehog was weirdly human looking in the face.
Because the criticism was so loud, director Jeff Fowler tweeted about it and delayed the movie to allow for a redesign.
“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,” the tweet reads.

Now, the trailer is fun, Sonic looks great and we finally get to see Jim Carrey back on the big screen. Carrey plays the antagonist Dr. Robotnik opposite the voice work of Ben Schwartz as Sonic.

Mad props go to Paramount and the talented VFX artists for delaying the film to give us a way better Sonic design. Pushing back the release date, not putting pressure on the artists and actually fucking listening to people is way more important #SonicMovie pic.twitter.com/JCClETt3uZ
