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... #sonicmovie #gottafixfast 🔧✌️— Jeff Fowler (@fowltown) May 2, 2019
The director of the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog film tweeted the following after the mostly tepid to negative response to the reveal of live action Sonic's character design in the trailer. The design will be altered before its November release date though it's unknown how much they can do before then.
The film comes out November 9, 2019.
