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 🔧✌️

I did NOT expect this! In a day and age where Hollywood usually doubles down on its bad decisions (Rian Johnson, Kathleen Kennedy, Brie Larson, etc etc) and either push back or put out excuses, this really surprised me! In fact, I was expecting the phrase “It’s a New Sonic for a New Age” to be thrown out…
But INSTEAD…the director of the film actually acknowledges their screw up on Sonic’s appearance in the latest trailer and assures fans they’re going to fix it?!? WOW! My faith in this film may be somewhat restored!
