Let’s not kid ourselves, the first Sonic was god awful.
He barely looked like the Sonic that kids grew up with on their SEGA genesis. The body, the head, THOSE TEETH, it was all just a horrible recreation of the blue hedgehog.
Here’s a reminder if you want it;
Sony saw the hate, and surprisingly, they did something about it. They pushed back the released of the movie to give time for animators to redesign him, and judging by this trailer, they succeeded.
Sure, this is still a kid’s movie. There is a fart joke, as well as other jokes geared towards children. The change they made was character design and that’s what needed to be done. For once the internet actually fixed something, and Sony should be praised for listening to their audience and spending time/money to make an animation correctly, and audiences should reward them by seeing the movie, instead of just complaining.
‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ releases on February 14, 2020.
