The trailer for the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog film was released on Tuesday to a rather unimpressed fanbase. Fans are not happy with Sonic’s overall looks or his animation.

Keith Stuart from the Guardian described it as “resembles a cheap knock-off Sonic toy your child might win at a fairground stand and then be terrified of”.

I can’t help but agree. In the trailer, Sonic does feel somewhat ‘cheap’ and have you seen his teeth?! Just look out for them in the trailer below and you’ll see what I mean.

Thankfully Director Jeff Fowler has taken the criticism well and has taken to Twitter to promise changes to Sonic’s design and animation. He states that both Paramount and Sega are committed to making the movie and character the best they can be. You can see the Twitter thread below.

Whilst it hasn’t been announced, a delay to the release date could well happen, follow the Twitter thread to stay up to date.

Sonic The Hedgehog is set to release in UK cinemas on 26th December, 2019.
