Sonic’s main purpose is to defeat the selfish Dr. Robotnik and save the world from him. For the movie, the design team initially wanted to make Sonic more realistic. They added fur, running shoes and two separate eyes. A more human-like physique was attached. But, Sega was not entirely happy with the new design of Sonic’s eyes either.
The audience who can make or break a film and on whom a film’s success totally depends criticized the look of Sonic heavily. They described his more humanoid appearance as uncanny. Clearly, even the viewers were not happy with it. Owing to the backlash of the audience, Fowler, the director of the movie, decided to push the release date of the movie for three months. The new date is now 14.02.2020.
