Why did the Sonic the Hedgehog movie get delayed?
The movie was pushed back due to a negative reaction from online commenters. The film version of Sonic the Hedgehog was originally scheduled for release in November 2019, but it’s been pushed back to Feb. 14, 2020, to give designers time to rework the iconic hedgehog’s design.
“Thank you for the support. And the criticism. The message is loud and clear,” director Jeff Fowler wrote on Twitter. “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.”
When Paramount Pictures released the initial trailer, fans were shocked by the Sega mascot’s look. The original model had human-like teeth and a long, slender body—in other words, it didn’t look much like the original Sonic.
Perhaps the new design was meant to reflect Sonic’s new origin story: In the film, he’s an extraterrestrial who lands on Earth (for the most part, the Sonic video games took place in a fictional universe, not on our planet).
In any case, the backlash was immediate and widespread. Writing for The Guardian, Keith Stuart described the new Sonic as resembling “a cheap knock-off Sonic toy your child might win at a fairground stand and then be terrified of.”
“He doesn’t even look like Sonic,” one Quora user wrote. “He just kind of looks like someone typed ‘ordinary CGI animal’ into a computer and went with the first result.”
Some fans decided to fix the design themselves. Twitter user @ThePinkGalaxy55 enlarged Sonic’s eyes, giving him a more traditional appearance.
Artist Edward Pun made Sonic shorter and more cartoonish—and his redesign garnered more than 82,000 retweets and 323,000 likes.
Of course, while Fowler says he’s committed to a redesign, a new character model might not fix all of the film’s issues. The movie, which stars Jim Carrey as the villainous Dr. Robotnik, has also received criticism for ignoring the Sega series' lore and using Coolio’s “Gangsta’s Paradise" in the trailer.
At this point, we’ve only seen one trailer, so the film could certainly exceed the internet’s low expectations. We’ll find out on Valentine’s Day 2020.
Sonic The Hedgehog 4 has been delayed. It will not be releasing until later this year.
No, the only Sonic movie ever is Sonic the Hedgehog the movie.
Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog Sonic The Hedgehog(SatAM) Sonic Underground Sonic the Hedgehog The Movie Sonic X
The name of the movie is simply Sonic the Hedgehog Movie.
yep! sonic underground,the adventures of sonic the hedgehog,sonic the hedgehog, sonic X i think that's all also they made a movie
There is no indication there will ever be a Sonic the Hedgehog theatrical film.
Sonic has been in four cartoons: Sonic The Hedgehog The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog Sonic Underground Sonic X He has also been in one film, Sonic The Hedgehog The Movie.
Probably later in the year or 2010 not sure dreamworks is making a Sonic the Hedgehog movie.
One has already been made. It came out in 1999 called "Sonic the Hedgehog: The Movie".
It really depends on YOU. You could like one Sonic movie, but someone else doesn't like that movie and likes another Sonic movie. Besides, there isn't very much Sonic The Hedgehog movies out. -_-
Sonic The Hedgehog: The Movie is about 1 hour long.
There already has been. Sonic the Hedgehog: The Movie. It was a cartoon and it was made somewhere after the events in Sonic and Knuckles. Search it up on google or somewhere. It was really good.
There were two Sonic shows before Underground: The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog (AoStH) and Sonic the Hedgehog (SatAM). SatAM was similar in setting to Underground. There was also a film, entitled Sonic the Hedgehog The Movie (Sonic OVA).
Yes there is its called Sonic the Hedgehog: The Movie and came out on May 31, 1996 in Japan and 1999 in Europe and North America.
Yes. Sonic the Hedgehog The Movie was released in 1996, and that was the beginning of the series about Sonic.
There already is a Sonic the Hedgehog movie, it was released in 1993. yeah but the new one comes out in theaters July 4th 2011.
There has already been a sonic movie. It is called Sonic: The movie. It's a 2 part OVA and you can see it on Youtube. But I highly doubt there will be a Sonic movie in the future.
there is only one sonic movie called sonic the hedgehog the movie, though i found i didn't like it, im not sure were you can get it though.
Maybe, that was a very old movie from sonic. If you don't find it, you can see the movie at youtube.
Already is a movie, Sonic the hedgehog: The Movie, I've never watched the whole thing though as I really hate the first part, second part crap that you have to do on youtube.
Youtube has the Sonic OVA but in 10 minute segments.
in Sonic the Hedgehog 1 you can't....only in sonic the hedgehog 2, sonic the hedgehog 3, and sonic & knuckles
The anagram of sonic the hedgehog "sonic the hedgehog."
yes it is called sonic x (Sonic X is not a movie, it is a TV series.) There was one that came out back in 1999 called Sonic the Hedgehog: The Movie, and it is often referred to as "Sonic OVA."
While there are no current plans for a Sonic the Hedgehog movie, you can never say never when it comes to the movies!
well,they already did.its called 'sonic the hedgehog cd movie'. type it on youtube.
There is no Sonic Movie that was released in 2007. For the movie that was released in 1996 (1999 in the US), you can find it on Youtube.
There already is a Sonic the Hedgehog movie, young one... I have it on VHS, it's white plastic and a nicely made movie.
Sonic the Hedgehog will kiss her in the new sega movie coming out
I certainly hope so There was one called Sonic the Hedgehog: The Movie (often referred to as "Sonic OVA") that came out in 1999.
The Sonic the Hedgehog game franchise has these games: Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Sonic the Hedgehog Spinball, Sonic the Hedgehog 3, Sonic & Knuckles, Sonic Adventure, Sonic Adventure 2 Battle, Sonic Advance, Sonic Mega Collection, Sonic Heroes, Sonic Mega Collection Plus, Sonic Rush, Sonic and the Secret Rings, Sonic the Hedgehog (mobile), Sonic Unleashed, Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing, Sonic Colors, and Sonic Generations.
There was. It was called Sonic the Hedgehog: The Movie, and it was released in Japan on May 31, 1996, and in the states! In 1999.
yes but it is not live action
It's already there, Sonic the hedgehog, Sonic the hedgehog 2, Sonic the hedgehog 2 and Knuckles, Sonic the hedgehog 3, Knuckles in Sonic the hedgehog 3 and Sonic and Knuckles are all the games that are in Sonic Classic Collection, they are available straight away.
There is not going to be any 2010 Sonic movie coming out. Wherever you heard it from, it is false. Hope that helps.

In the video games, Ryan Drummond was his first voice. Soon Jason Griffith made his voice.

Jason Griffith also voiced Sonic in Sonic X. Martin Burke voiced Sonic in Sonic the Hedgehog: The Movie (OVA). So, we can tell here that Sonic has many… Read More
Well, hard to say. Star Wars was a very hard hitting movie. But SEGA has been around longer..... and Sonic has been in it a REALLY long time..... In my opinion Sonic The Hedgehog.....
