I just watched the newest trailer of Sonic the Hedgehog Movie.
My first impression with the new design of sonic is he look cute and appealing. They design him closer to the classic Sonic. his blue fur is more vibrant, he has larger eyes, slimmer legs and arms. I noticed he has a bow that bows inward. he has more expression. I so happy he wears gloves and very glad he is wearing his iconic shoes!
Now sonic can appeals to a range of audiences, including children who did not grow up knowing Sonic and Sega games. The trailer is fun, have a funny moment. the music is just right, instead of Gangster Paradise. I feel his reputation/images has beeing restored. I felt sorry for Sonic that he image was sabotaged.
Paramount knew all along they mess up! they knew that sonic did not look right. I felt like the company with top animators and talented creative team, THAT THEY SHOULD KNOW BETTER!
I did have my doubts when they announced that they will redesign sonic but did successfully corrected him, meeting the fans expectation.
I have written a post on the original trailer with eh older design of Sonic. Sonic could be Fixed after the Backlash to The New Sonic The Hedgehog Film.
