Sonic the Hedgehog movie delayed three months to ‘fix’ Sonic

We’ll have to wait a little longer to see Sonic the Hedgehog hit the big screen. The film Sonic the Hedgehog has been pushed to Feb. 14, 2020 — making it the perfect Valentine’s Day movie to see with your boo. The original release date was set for November of this year, but has been delayed in order to “fix” Sonic’s look.

This announcement comes after a wave of internet backlash followed the first trailer, with many complaining about the beloved hedgehog’s design. The stinging internet critique prompted director Jeff Fowler to declare that Sonic’s look would be redone before the final version hit theaters. He announced this on Twitter, complete with the hashtag #gottafixfast. The internet then reacted to this news, questioning the feasibility of doing intense overhauls on such a project.

Fowler seems to have taken the second wave of feedback into account and took to Twitter again on Friday, posting the new release date of the movie with a new, rather loquacious hashtag, #novfxartistswereharmedinthemakingofthismovie. Sonic the Hedgehog holds up a sign with the new release date. It should be noted that, unlike his appearance in the trailer where his hands were simply white fur, the Sonic in the illustration has his signature white gloves. Paramount confirmed the new release date.

Though the character design will change, Sonic the Hedgehog is still voiced by Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation), with Richard Madden and Jim Carrey also starring.
