After receiving much criticism and comments from fans, director “Sonic The Hedgehog”, Jeff Fowler, decided to postpone the release of the film.
Jeff Fowler confirmed that the film was postponed until 2020. The delay was caused by fan criticism of Sonic’s deemed bad design.
This criticism eventually led Paramount and the film’s creative team to redesign Sonic. And, because it would require a lot of work and time for the redesign, the studio finally decided to postpone the flight schedule for Sonic the Hedgehog for three months from the original schedule of 8 November 2019 to 14 February 2020.
The film Sonic itself is an adaptation of a popular game in 1991. Citing Variety, Sonic is one of the game’s characters who became a big icon. In the video game, Sonic is identical as a blue thorny creature with a speed that can be increased to the maximum during a race.
