Now this is a good looking hedgehog!
Sonic the Hedgehog movie new and improved

Back in April of this year, the first trailer for the Sonic the Hedgehog movie was unleashed upon the world. I say "unleashed" not because of the terrible Sonic Unleashed game, but because of the unspeakable horrors Sonic's movie design thrust upon an unsuspecting world.

A few days later, the movie's director, Jeff Fowler, said that they were going to make Sonic look less weird. In late May, the movie was officially delayed until Valentine's Day 2020. Nobody really knew what to expect from the redesign from Hollywood. Let's face it: They already screwed up his look something fierce in their first attempt, so who's to say it wouldn't happen again?

The newest trailer for Sonic the Hedgehog was released today and with it we see the new and vastly improved design for the blue blur. It looks like Hollywood didn't screw this one up. Paramount Pictures even sought help from Tyson Hesse, the lead animator on the Sonic Mania Adventures animated shorts. These animated episodes were, in turn, based off of the look and design of the stellar Sonic Mania games from 2017.

Now that is how a movie Sonic should look! If you needed a reminder, the old design can be found below taken from roughly the same scene. But don't just take my word for it, be sure to check out the new trailer above. He looks better in motion.
