Fans were not at all thrilled with the blue hedgehog’s appearance in the first trailer for “Sonic The Hedgehog.” Now the criticism of the character has an impact on the start date …
Originally, “Sonic The Hedgehog” was supposed to open in theaters on November 8, 2019 in the US The new start date is now February 14, 2020. The reason for the postponement is the reworking of the main character Sonic, as directed by Jeff Fowler. Twitter self-confirmed: “We’re taking a little longer for Sonic to look good“:
Fans found Sonic ugly in the trailer
After fans of “Sonic The Hedgehog” disagreed with the appearance of the blue hedgehog in the first trailer of the video game adaptation, Fowler recently reacted very clearly to criticism and announced a design review. The director, or rather Studio Paramount, now follows his words with deeds. Changes to the Sonic design should take about three months to complete.

This is what “Sonic The Hedgehog” is about
“Sonic The Hedgehog” is the mascot of the video game maker Sega and its most popular character. In the movie, the hedgehog Sonic (originally spoken by Ben Schwartz), running at the speed of sound, finds a new best friend in Tom Wachowski (James Marsden). Together they try to defeat the evil Dr. Stop Robotnik (Jim Carrey) from usurping world domination.
By the way, the US startup setting is unlikely to have any effect on the German date, as the “Sonic” adventure in this country shouldn’t appear until February 6, 2020 anyway. However, with the change in America, we expect it to be on the big screen starting February 13, 2020.
