Just a few minutes after the trailer for Sonic: The Hedgehog dropped on the internet, people started to complain over Sonic’s look in the trailer. Fans of video game started criticizing Paramount over the Sonic’s creepy and weird look and how much different he looks from its original appearance from video games.
People described the movie Sonic as a weird skinny child wearing Sonic’s costume and running here and there. The hate for the trailer is so huge that the movie’s director tweeted an apology and promised to fix the Sonic by the release of the movie.
On Thursday the director of the movie tweeted, “Thank you for the support. And the criticism. The message is loud and clear… you aren’t happy with the design & you want changes. It’s going to happen. Everyone at Paramount & Sega are fully committed to making this character the BEST he can be”
According to fans, the attempt to make Sonic look like a human made it worst because Sonic is a hedgehog, not a human being so what’s the point in giving him human legs, teeth, and weird height.
We are just wondering what will happen with the weirdly looking Pokemon’s when Detective Pikachu will hit the theatres because the weird looking Pikachu also gathered some hate when the trailer for Detective Pikachu arrived on the internet.
Now its in hands of Paramount and Sega to make Sonic look more like Sonic but will it delay the release of the movie or will get shelved as it is getting shelved from 2013.
The movie is in works from last 5 years when Sony purchased the rights for the character but when they failed to get something the rights got passed to Paramount but since here also they are facing problems then god only knows what’s going to happen with Sonic.
Sonic is slated to release November 8 in cinemas.
