Sonic the Hedgehog movie redesign actually looks really good!

Sonic the Hedgehog movie redesign actually looks really good!

Earlier this year when Paramount Pictures released its first trailer of Sonic the Hedgehog (Now removed), it was met with rather vocal criticisms of Sonic’s visual treatment. Suffice to say, the pre-change Sonic was nightmarish. See for yourself below.

Thankfully, the pushback from the audience made Paramount double back and delayed the movie so that they could fix Sonic. I must say, the Internet won this round because the redesign looks way more in line with what we’ve come to think of as Sonic. Check out the new trailer.

While Sonic looks so much better now, I can’t help but put on my tin foil hat and think that nightmare Sonic was a publicity stunt from Paramount Pictures because everyone loves the new Sonic now - and talking about it. The new trailer has a lighter tone with Sonic being more fun along with brighter and game-like scenery. We will have to wait and see how the movie turns out.

Sonic the Hedgehog will speed into theatres next February 14th, 2020.
