    This is a good decision. I'm not holding my breath for a great movie, but at least I don't have to look at that god-forsaken abomination of a character design for a full 2 hours when it finally does release.

    Why does anything Sonic related always must get delayed to make it better?
    Why not have something prepared that's already good so you won't have to delay it?

    It's interesting to see that all the teaser posters out there were pointing out the bad figure, and instead of the dev team taking that, they keep going with their broken idea, only for the audience to really hate them when the trailer released, and now the dev team is having to redo something they had more than enough time to fix back when they showed the teaser posters. Bad, just bad. The Sonic Team should be fired and someone else take over. I know! Get the guy who used a home PC to erase Superman's mustache from Justice League!

    Lots of people are way too focused on Sonic's redesign, while I remain skeptical about the movie itself.
    A redesign fix might not defuse the bomb, and not prevent the flop.
    You know how it works in video games, right?
    A game could have some impressive character designs, but it's other factors, such as presentation and storywriting, sometimes end up being too boring, or very unlikable.
    That goes the same for movies. You can hire Jim Carrey to do Dr. Eggman, you can give a new amazing voice actor for Sonic, but they end up being meaningless if the rest of the movie will be, just bad.

    But yeah, whatever floats your boat. if you can enjoy the movie just by having sonic's design fixed, then have fun!
    As for those who judge a movie for all it's factors, I suggest to keep expectations at absolute zero.

    I'll say this,

    Far better than releasing the current abomination of a movie that they call Sonic the Hedgehog.

    So... What if after the redesign no one still likes it. And they just wasted all that time and money to please a crowd that's already hard to please to begin with.

    here idk
    Maybe the back edge of our seats.
    ...why would Superman ever have a mustache
    Also, a home PC is becoming less and less of a limitation. RTX, anyone? (Watch this be an outdated comment the moment Nvidia reveals their "something super")

    I wonder why, the trailer looked perfect. And again I can't comment enough how Ganter's Paradise fits the Sonic theme!

    They might have been bad movies, but they wouldn't have made three of them if they didn't make money. So it goes. Then again:

    Isn't February typically a dumping ground for movies that are not otherwise expected to make much money?

    How about delaying it to forever.

    Really no damn reason for sonic to look like that.

    Even if you wanted him to look like he had realistic fur there are tons of decent looking models that do just that while still holding the "Adventure" sonic look that everyone likes.

    Hell there are even classic sonic models that do that as well.

    I am sure some fans that have created this would have jumped at the chance to do this movie justice...
