Let the haters rejoice!! It seems the Internet has gotten its way as Sonic The Hedgehog movie director, Jeff Fowler, tweeted today that our blue ring hugging buddy of old is going in for a redesign.
While this is certainly no Super Mario Bros. movie, the Internet has been in an uproar since the trailer hit YouTube. Many viewers were accusing Paramount and the writers of leaning on a big name like Jim Carrey to draw viewers. YouTube viewers were also not staying quiet with 455k thumbs down at the time of this writing.
I’ll admit I was not entirely sold on the Sonic design as I thought he was a bit too tail and ‘human-like’ and looked like someone wearing a really good Halloween costume. I just hope they don’t do anything with Jim Carrey’s Dr. Robotnik! Do you think Paramount should go back to the drawing boards and redesign Sonic? Will the viewers ever be happy?
