A new image of Sonic redesign for Paramount Pictures’ upcoming “Sonic the Hedgehog” live-action hybrid movie adaptation has found its way online. It is not sure if the studio hired private contractors to redesign Sonic or it was from the same production crew who designed the first look, but so far Sonic new design looks better and fans seem to be happy with it.
Back in May, Sonic the Hedgehog’s movie director, Jeff Fowler, announced that they decided to redesign Sonic after fans outcry and concerns when the film first trailer was released. Fowler told fans that everyone at Paramount and Sega was fully committed to making this character the “BEST” he can be. And truly speaking, they have kept their promise.
Paramount Pictures also pushed Sonic the Hedgehog movie to February 14, 2020. Fowler said the delay is because the staffs are “taking a little more time to make Sonic just right”. Sonic’s new features the character’s traditional white gloves with red running shoes instead of having hands like in the trailer. The image is from the movie cinema standee.
Sonic the Hedgehog was first released by Sega for arcades in 1991. The game has since spawned several animated series and comic book tie-ins.
Sonic the Hedgehog is directed by Jeff Fowler. The film features Ben Schwartz (Duck Tales, Parks and Recreation) as the voice Sonic, James Marsden, Tika Sumpter, and Jim Carrey. Neal H. Moritz and Tim Miller (Deadpool) will be the film executive producing, along with Toby Ascher. Patrick Casey and Josh Miller will write the film scripts. Dmitri Johnson and Dan Jevons are co-producing the project.
SONIC THE HEDGEHOG film follows the (mis)adventures of Sonic as he navigates the complexities of life on Earth with his newfound – human – best friend Tom Wachowski (James Marsden). Sonic and Tom join forces to try and stop the villainous Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey) from capturing Sonic and using his immense powers for world domination.
