Director Jeff Fowler has announced on Twitter that the Sonic the Hedgehog movie delayed indefinitely from November to February 14, 2020.
This news comes after fans weren’t too happy after the trailer for the Sonic the Hedgehog movie late last month. After the internet was set ablaze, director Jeff Fowler promised fans the blue hedgehog would get a redesign. Now, Fowler has confirmed that the reason for the Sonic The Hedgehog movie delayed is due to the extra work. He jokingly ended the tweet saying that no VFX artists will be hurt during the making of the film, a possible reassurance that there won’t be crazy overtime hours to hit the deadline.
With the tweet, a picture that shows a possible tease of the redesign shows Sonic’s arm holding a sign with the new date against a yellow background. In the first trailer, Sonic didn’t wear his signature gloves on his hands (his hands are white fur), but in the image shows the gloves. Underneath the date looks to be a slightly different shape for Sonic’s head. The silhouette seems closer to the original style of Sonic. These clues seem to hint that the redesign may follow a classic look for the hedgehog, rather than the more humanoid-like design that’s currently featured.
Even though most fans seem down on the Sonic film, we think it looks pretty fun and that it shouldn’t be taken too seriously. In other Sonic news, Team Sonic Racing launched earlier this week on PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC with a live action trailer that doesn’t feature any CG hedgehogs.
