Sonic movie character undergoes makeover following fan backlash

Makers of upcoming Sonic movie have revealed a new-yet-classic look for the character Sonic the Hedgehog, redesigned following an outburst of criticism from fans. The film’s first trailer, released in May, saw fans question why the video game character had been given small eyes, human teeth and disproportionate legs. The makeover has addressed these issues.

Credit where it is due. The film makers listened to the fans and now the result looks much better. I hope the film is financially successful so it sends the message to other companies that sometimes it pays to actually listen to the fans (looking at you Disney).

The first one looks like the kid from Jumanji (original) when he turns into a monkey.

...Wow.. An immense difference in the design. Credit to Jeff Fowler he really listened. I might just watch to encourage more of this behavior and feedback.

First one was badly designed deliberately. We are all talking about it now and the story is more than likely going to suck "but at least Sonic looks good better".
