Live Action Sonic the Hedgehog Movie Delayed Until Feb. 2020

Gotta Go.. a little slower.

Here comes today's least surprising news: the Sonic the Hedgehog live-action movie has been delayed into next year to make up for visual changes.

Odds are you've heard of the Sonic movie by now. The live action format worried plenty of internet-goers. Then they released their first trailer, showing Sonic's CGI body. And it was bad. We spoke in length about how awful it was.



In response to the overwhelming negative feedback, director Jeff Fowler released a statement, saying that they will be fixing the character model's design.
 

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.


This had a variety of reactions. Some were happy, some didn't believe him. Of course, the internet being the conspiratorial creature it is, people also suspected that they intentionally made the model bad so that they could "fix it" for good PR.

The biggest concern was how they would do something as drastic as changing an entire character model and still make it in time for the release this November. Now we know that the answer is to change the date.

According to Director Jeff Fowler once again, the Sonic the Hedgehog live action movie will be delayed until February 14, 2020. This was announced in a tweet saying "Taking a little more time to make Sonic just right." and a picture of Sonic's properly-gloved hand holding up a sign with the date.

This makes sense, really. It takes time to remake a character and they're pushing the film back to handle that. They probably didn't say anything until now because of all the logistics it takes to confirm a new release date.

The live action Sonic the Hedgehog movie now releases in theaters on February 14, 2020.
