    After the negative reception following the release of the first Sonic The Hedgehog live action movie trailer, the producers and director of the movie delayed the title's release to rework on Sonic's CGI model. Today we got a first peak at the new Sonic in a brand new trailer where the spiky protagonist looks less humanoid and more like the Blue Blur himself:

    What do you think of Sonic's redesign? Will it make you reconsider watching the movie when it releases in February 14, 2020?

    Wow, it actually looks like Sonic now. I wonder if this movie will still flop even after all this time spent on redesigning him.

    The movie will probably still be garbage, but atleast the model looks a heck of a lot better.

    It's still going to be a mediocre movie about the guy helping sonic but at least it'll look good.

    Sonic now looks like Sonic. But this reminds me of the old saying you can paint a shit gold but its still a shit. Film looks bloody awful not quite Mario Bros awful but still really really bad.

    SO much better than the previous design! The film now actually looks somewhat watchable. Hats off to the visual artists who had to change everything this late into production.

    The trailer doesn't have a stick in its ass like the first one did, and Sonic look SOOOO MUCH BETTER like INFINITELY BETTER than in the first, so it's got that going for it which is nice.
    Movie might still suck though.

    Looks a thousand times better. I seriously don't know what they were smoking with the previous design. Like fucking hell, the comparison is ridiculous.

    It’s such an improvement I literally don’t need to watch the movie, the trailer saves 85 minutes.

    The first design was a marketing ploy to make internet explode in memes. There is no bad advertisement.
