All The 'Sonic The Hedgehog' Design Changes They Made For The Live Action Film | Pop Culture Decoded
In April of this year, Paramount released a trailer for their live-action take on SEGA’s "Sonic The Hedgehog" franchise. Fans hated it. They attempted to make Sonic more “realistic” but ended up creating something fairly disturbing. Due to the backlash, the film’s director, Jeff Fowler, promised fans he would change Sonic’s design to make him more like the iconic character we all know and love. The newly released trailer has received a much warmer response. Watch as we break down the differences between Paramount’s first and second version of "Sonic the Hedgehog."

    Paramount gets a ton of fan complaint; pumps the brakes, redesigns the entire character and fixes everything Disney gets a ton of fan complaint; Kathleen Kennedy still talkin shit after all this time, zero changes, zero effort

    First sonic was "realistic" this sonic is more Pixar 3D if that makes any sense and it works glad they got it right eventually .... because carrey looks hilarious the part that got me was the ending of the trailer when he put the goggles on lol

    The fake sonic hedgehog is hilarious...biggest CGI failure in Paramount history......It cost 90 million dollars to make and plus redesign. 5 million dollars to replacement and ads. Total cost $95 million dollars. It going to be box office success... But the biggest mistake is CGI fails. lol.

    I showed a friend who didn't see any of the trailers both Sonic's side by side. Here was her deduction 2019- Sonic's long lost deformed cousin 2020- sonic the hedgehog

    (Martin) I have to continue, I love Paramount's ideas, but HOW do you greenlight that design! Look at the legs and calves of Sonic in that poster! Doesn't that just scare you knowing who sonic is??

    1:29 how is that disturbing

  • ElectroShock

    They probably planned this whole thing just to cause controversy in order to lure more people and ergo more money for them. That's a good marketing strategy and I will be seeing this movie.

  • Justin R

    Now can paramount present a story with this movie?

  • fu7zed

    Plot twist : 1) the studio produced a fake trailer on purpose to spark fear in the Sega/Sonic fanbase. 2) the first trailers generate a worldwide buzz 6 months before the originally planned release (why would we invest in an advertisement plan ? retwitters will do it for us). 3) fans are emotionnaly concerned about the design and keep looking forward for news. 4) the studio releases the right design in a new trailer and generates the highest possible engagement rate with the Sega/Sonic fanbase. Lol even if this movie ends up being bad, it will be a HIT

  • Youni2003

    he is so much better

  • PandaCami

    What if they just did the ugly Sonic on purpose cause they knew it would go viral but had prepared a better version from the first time. Maybe it was all a strategy to have more spectators to the movie hmmmmmm

  • Dubem Lol

    Unpopular opinion: This was all a marketing trick to gather more attention towards the movie

    Yeah he looks better, and slightly cuter.. But they still don't have the body shape right and he's too big in my opinion.
