After the massive internet backlash from the initial trailer that shows off Sonic in his fully revealed design, fans will be pleased to hear that director Jeff Fowler (who has never directed a movie before, save for a single short film in 2004), has taken to social media to recognize the opportunity for change.
Thank you for the support. And the criticism. The message is loud and clear… you aren’t happy with the design & you want changes. It’s going to happen. Everyone at Paramount & Sega are fully committed to making this character the BEST he can be… #sonicmovie #gottafixfast 🔧✌️

Remarkably, fans such as Edward Pun here, have designed an incredibly improved version of Sonic in just a matter of hours after the trailer’s release. Just goes to show that regardless of your views on the character, there is always room for (significant) improvement.
