    Coming as not much of a surprise to many, the Sonic the Hedgehog movie won't be releasing this year. Following the outpouring of criticism regarding the film's trailer and design of Sonic, the production team said they'd be redesigning the character to make him look a bit more like...Sonic. That announcement was made earlier this May, meaning the visual effects team would only have less than six months to rework the new look into the movie. That apparently turned out to not be enough time, as Jeff Fowler, the director, stated that they'd be taking a little more time to make Sonic "just right", by delaying the picture from November 8, 2019 to February 14, 2020.

    It's also worth noting, the picture shown in the delay reveal has Sonic wearing his traditional white gloves, as opposed to the original movie design which instead featured him having white paws.

    It should be delayed until the day after the apocolypse.

    "Okay so it turns out the focus groups kinda sorta don't like this design that we've been pushing for and you've been working on for the past 5-6 years. How long will it take you to remake everything? One week? Two?"

    What were they expecting to make sonic look like "That" in the first place?


    That's what they get for trolling the fans with that one response...

    Didn't they had focus groups or something to tell them if their design is abysmal or not?

    look a bit more like...Sonic.

    Really ? They should change him to look a lot like ... Sonic! If he don't looks like Sonic 100 percent in 2020 then this movie will fall through the ceiling and they will lose the money.

    At least remove his unsightly humanoid teeth and make his eyes that one eye design that he's known for, bam, he won't be nightmare fuel :P

    The longer it takes to release this movie, the better the possibility of a decent movie. Unlikely, but possible.

    Ah right, yes, a vital part of Sonic's appearance; as is, he is pure nightmare fuel :blink:

    I think its crazy how much power there is in criticism to stop/delay something like this. Clearly when they released the trailers the Producer, and the Studio responsible felt it was perfect.

    No actual point to this, just stating that its strange. Continue.

    And sneakers/running shoes based on Sonic Adventure.

    Well, they don't want another cat in the hat disaster. Funny enough the designs were the only good thing about that movie, but they ruined it by the crude humor and adult jokes.
