The Sonic the Hedgehog director Jeff Fowler has confirmed that a decision has been made to delay the movie.
After the backlash about how the blue blur looked in the movie, they are now reworking his design – the result being that they need “more time to make Sonic just right.”
The movie has therefore been delayed from its original November release to 14th February 2020, allowing for the extra time that is now needed.
The live-action adventure comedy stars SEGA’s brash bright blue hedgehog icon, following Sonic “as he navigates the complexities of life on Earth with his newfound – human – best friend Tom Wachowski.”
They join forces in an effort to stop the villainous Dr. Robotnik – played by Jim Carrey – from capturing Sonic and using his immense powers for world domination.
The Sonic the Hedgehog movie will release in cinemas worldwide on 14th February 2020.
