After the initial release of trailer in April, Paramount received a lot of backlash for how horrendous Sonic looked in the first trailer. It was reported that the redesign of the character cost the company about 5 million dollars. The movie is set to be in theaters on February 14, 2020. The new character has better proportions and doesn’t look as “creepy”. I’m personally pretty excited to see this film and this redesign definitely helped draw attention to the film.
