'Sonic the Hedgehog' Producer Tim Miller Promises Fans Will Like the Redesign

Speaking with Variety, Miller, who also masterminded 2016's excellent superhero flick Deadpool, said that the decision to delay Sonic the Hedgehog until 2020 to accommodate the redesign was the right call to make.

"You aren't happy with the design & you want changes", he wrote.

Sonic the Hedgehog fans may not have been thrilled by their first look at the character in his own live-action movie, but that could all be about to change. "There's a right way to listen", said Miller.

Mere days later, the film's director Jeff Fowler took to Twitter to announce that he had heard the criticism loud and clear, and that Paramount had agreed to push back Sonic's release date so that he and his team could completely overhaul the offending design.

We got a look at the trailer for the new Sonic the Hedgehog film, which will star Jim Carrey as Robotnik and Ben Schwartz as the voice of Sonic. The design of Sonic did not go down well at all, you literally couldn't move on the internet without seeing a meme or a good old fashioned moan.

I will be most pleased when they drop the new movie trailer with Sonic looking as cute and sexy like Justin Timberlake as he always does in the games.

Obviously he's going to say that-movie producers don't generally admit up-front that their films are going to suck-but in this case I'm just about ready to take him at his word. "When the s**t hit the fan, I went over there and said, 'The most important thing to do, man, is say, 'I f**ked up, '" Miller said.

It's now scheduled to hit theatres on 14th February 2020. He's a good man.

Think of the original Xbox One always online DRM strategy, to name one, or more recent stuff like the Sonic the Hedgehog movie.

Though the footage itself revealed a serviceable CG-animated adventure with a amusing enough scene from none other than Jim Carrey himself as Dr. Ivo Robotnik, fans could only focus on one thing: Sonic's new look. "It was exactly the right way to handle that", he said.
