Sonic Delayed due to Dental Surgery


When Paramount dropped the trailer for their live action CGI hybrid adaptation of Sonic the Hedgehog, fans freaked on Twitter over the blue animal’s human teeth, calling them “creepy” and “nightmarish”.

As such director Jeff Fowler announced on Twitter today that the pic, which Paramount is banking on as an event film, is zooming from its Nov. 8 release to Feb. 14, 2020 next year so that the production can work further on character redesign. Fowler heard fans loud and clear three weeks ago. The original Sonic trailer clocked a great 31.4M views on YouTube. Paramount unveiled two at CinemaCon, one focused on the Hedgehog (which is the official one), and centering around Jim Carrey’s evil Dr. Robotnik.

I don't think they quite get the idea that fixing Sonic himself will not keep this movie from being a steaming pile of dog turds. He is hardly the only thing wrong with it.

I thought the trailer I saw in the theater looked awesome, but I am EASY to please. What I didn't care for at all is Sonic's EYES. They are too small. He needs giant Garfield eyes not creepy human ones!

Of all the things wrong with Sonic they think fixing the teeth is going to save this thing?

I expect this movie to do well well, and then get reviewed badly.

People will support you for doing the fan service, taking the fans onions as a guideline to how they handle the sonic IP, even if it is a little too late, I believe the support for this movie will be a loads.

We live in a world where people virtue signal to protect things that people don't like just for the sake of it pissing of the right people.

This movie literally shrugged that mentality off, and said ok, I hear you.

Funny how it's that easy, regardless of how people will play the fail or success of this movie, no one will be negative about their willingness to do better and improve.
