After the disastrous first trailer, director Sonic The Hedgehog Jeff Fowler announced that the character is going through a redesign following the backlash. This was a welcomed announced to fans of the SEGA hero who saw a bizarre furry in the original teaser. After a series of hopeful leaks, we finally got a new trailer that shows off Sonic’s new look.
Check it out below:
Okay, all my hopes and dreams for the Sonic movie have been restored. Better character design. Better music. And all around, just better. I am also happy to confirm that Jim Carrey will be playing Dr. Robotnik and the new moniker “Eggman.” Now, this film will no doubt be more like a kid’s movie with lots of action and innuendos to keep the adults entertained and cartoonish hijinks to keep the kids laughing. With this in mind, it is nice to see a movie company respond so rapidly to the fans instead of telling to shove it.
(I’m looking at you Warner Bros., LucasFilms, and Marvel Comics.)
