After the cheesy first trailer for the forthcoming Sonic the Hedgehog live-action film arrived, fans tore the clip apart across social media because of the main character’s horrifying human teeth. Now, director Jeff Fowler has pledged to redesign the character just six months out from the slated release date.
“Thank you for the support. And the criticism,” Fowler tweeted yesterday. “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.”
Several diehard fans even took to Twitter to offer up some of their own redesigns, and you can check out a handful of them below.

a bit rusty on my painting, but I tried doing a paintover of a shot from the movie trailer with Sonic's design from the games for fun pic.twitter.com/h6luDEVKWW
