Sonic Movie trailer was hated by the fans, and it received a lot of criticism for it. After the backlash, the director Jeff Fowler announced that changes would be coming to the movie which is based on a video game. The trailer featured Jim Carrey as Dr. Eggman, the CGI-animated hedgehog which was released on Tuesday and was greeted with a lot of backlashes.

Moreover, the Guardian’s Keith Stuart described it as “a 200mph slap in the face” and said the central character “resembles a cheap knock-off Sonic toy your child might win at a fairground stand and then be terrified of.” Also, Sonic’s human-style teeth drew particular flak on social media.

A VFX specialist whose previously worked on Spike Jonze’s adaptation of Where the Wild Things Are — posted a message named Fowler used the hashtag #gottafixfast on social media. He said “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.”

This movie has been in development as a movie since Sony acquired the adaptation rights in 2013. But, it failed to get a project off the ground, and the rights were passed to Paramount in 2017. The film is due for release on 8th November.
