‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ Redesign Finished, Hopefully Removing Sonic’s Terrifying Dentures
Despite feeling like ages ago, it was only April when the first trailer for the upcoming ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ movie dropped, terrifying fans of the iconic character who were aghast at the speedster’s misshapen proportions and Baba Booey-like chompers.
In a nearly unprecedented move, the filmmakers of Sonic rightfully decided to go back to the digital drawing board and redesign the character to make him less horrifying. Now, it looks as though the ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ redesign is complete and according to producer Tim Miller, who spoke with Variety, fans will be pleased.
“Look, I was with fans and so was Jeff,” Miller said. “When the shit hit the fan, I went over there and said, ‘The most important thing to do, man, is say, ‘I fucked up.’ He’d already sent a tweet out an hour before I got there. He’s a good man. It was exactly the right way to handle that. The fans have a voice in this too. There’s a right way to listen.”
Miller then revealed that he had seen the new design and promised that it’s far improved—which we can only assume means that the character’s proportions have been evened out and the urinal-like teeth have been modified. “I think the fans will be pleased,” Miller said.
As a result of the redesign, the release date of the movie has been pushed back from November 2019 to February 2020.
