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."

    Don't you thing that such a huge redesign in just 3 months with a whole new tone in the trailer is just a bit strange? And that maybe they knew that the design would be complete trash (who wouldn't?) only to change the design at the backlash from the community making the look like heroes to the public eye

    That also means they had to do the acting ALL over again, because when he picks up sonic the character has to fit into his arms perfectly. If they didn’t fix this sonic would’ve probably been hovering over the actors hands and possibly hover things, like for example when that little girl gave him the shoes he held onto it, and if they didn’t change the objects length it would’ve most likely looked really weird. ( especially because his hands and legs were different before )
