As soon as the movie Sonic the Hedgehog presented its first trailer, the fans left one thing very clear: the blue hedgehog design did not like it. After an infinity of memes and all kinds of criticism, those responsible for the film announced the decision to delay its release in theaters until next year to redesign Sonic and do something more to the liking of its fans. We have not yet had occasion to see the new aspect of the protagonist, but according to the producer Tim Miller, this time will give something more of the taste of the community.
” Look, I was on the side of the fans, and so was Jeff [Fowler, director] ” explains Miller to the Variety portal. ” When the shit splashes the amateur, I went to him to say ‘uncle, the most important thing is to say that we have screwed up’. An hour before I arrived, I had already felt a tweet. He is a good uncle. It was exactly the best way to react to this. Fans have a voice in all this. There is a correct way to listen ”
When asked about Sonic’s new design, Miller recognizes that he has already seen it. ” I think the fans will be satisfied ” Unfortunately, we do not know when we can see it on our own. The original design had human features such as the muscles and teeth, while a later track pointed to something much more faithful to the Sonic that we have seen countless times in the Sega games, with gloves included. The new release date of Sonic the Hedgehog is February 14, 2020.
