The official trailer for the new Sonic the Hedgehog movie dropped this week, and fans had a lot to say about Sonic’s new look.
After the trailer debuted, social media erupted with criticisms towards Sonic’s appearance, which features many human-like attributes, including his eyes, teeth and legs.
The director for the upcoming film later took to Twitter to address the controversy, writing:
“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“
Sonic the Hedgehog is due to be released in theaters on November 8, 2019.
