Another image of the better design for the titular character in the Sonic The Hedgehog movie has leaked online.
The pic looks to be from a movie theater standee for the flick, which has been posted to social media.
Following the release of the trailer back in April, fans reacted rather negatively to the look of Sonic, as the trailer has over 718K dislikes on YouTube alone.
The good news is that the studio and director Jeff Fowler took notice and decided to fix things.
“Thank you for the support. And the criticism,” tweeted director Jeff Fowler back in May. “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… #sonicmovie #gottafixfast.”
Check out the latest leaked Sonic The Hedgehog images below.
Update: Watch the new trailer featuring the new and fixed design.
