Director Jeff Fowloer tweeted the following note along with the image you see below: “Taking a little more time to make Sonic just right.” He also added the hashtag #novfxartistswereharmedinthemakingofthismovie which I sure hope is true.
The film was originally slated for a November 2019 release, but the addition of these extra months should be enough time to smooth everything out for their VFX team.
Who knows how long it will be before we get a better look at the updates they make to Sonic, but I think the best move from the studio would be more transparency during the process. Not only would it make hardcore Sonic lovers feel better about things, it would be a great marketing campaign to truly “make it about the fans”.
“Sonic the Hedgehog” stars Ben Schwartz as Sonic, Jim Carrey as Dr. Robotnik, James Marsden, Natasha Rothwell, Tika Sumpter, Neal McDonough, and Adam Pally.
