Newly redesigned Sonic debuts in ‘Sonic The Hedgehog’ trailer

Wow, what a difference a redesign makes! Paramount Pictures has revealed the new character design for Sega favourite, Sonic, following fan backlash from the original trailer in May earlier this year.

Director Jeff Fowler was so determined to get the design right for fans, that they sent the character back to the animation studio, and boy does it look better. The transformation has been referred to as the “the glow up of the century”, with the internet even creating a brand new meme to celebrate the release.

Check out the trailer and poster below.

Based on the global blockbuster videogame franchise from Sega, SONIC THE HEDGEHOG tells the story of the world’s speediest hedgehog as he embraces his new home on Earth. In this live-action adventure comedy, Sonic and his new best friend Tom (James Marsden) team up to defend the planet from the evil genius Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey) and his plans for world domination. The family-friendly film also stars Tika Sumpter and Ben Schwartz as the voice of Sonic.

Directed by Jeff Fowler, Sonic the Hedgehog stars James Marsden, Ben Schwartz, Tika Sumpter and Jim Carrey.

The film opens in UK cinemas on February 14th 2020.
