After massive fan backlash, the upcoming ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ movie has been pushed back three months.
Shortly after the Blue Blur’s film trailer was released back in April, director Jeff Fowler tweeted that the production team had heard the fans’ concerns, and would be altering Sonic’s much-maligned new design. Fans with some knowledge of visual effects began to worry that this would force the film’s artists into a several-month-long crunch period, but Fowler has since announced that the studio made the smart decision to delay the movie from November 19th, 2019 to February 14th, 2020.
Sonic will be voiced by Ben Schwartz of Parks and Recreation fame, while Dr. Robotnik will be portrayed by Jim Carry. It’s tough to say if we’ll be seeing changes as early as the next trailer, but we’ll most likely get a look at Sonic’s redesign in the next six months.
