'Sonic' movie delayed as filmmakers redesign iconic hedgehog
The “Sonic the Hedgehog” movie won’t make its November 2019 release date, director Jeff Fowler announced on Twitter Friday, saying that the team is “taking a little more time to make Sonic just right.”
The film, which has Ben Schwartz providing the voice of Sonic and also stars Jim Carrey, James Marsden, and Tika Sumpter, now has a Feb. 14, 2020 release date.
The news comes just weeks after the movie’s first full trailer drew fan criticism, memes, and home-made redesigns ignited by Sonic’s overall design. The video game icon’s stubby in-game appearance was replaced with a humanoid Sonic with long, lean runners’ legs, red sports shoes and — perhaps most disturbing — a full head of teeth.
