It’s been a bizarre month for the upcoming live-action function movie model of Sonic the Hedgehog. First up was that trailer, the one set to “Gangsta’s Paradise”, which in the beginning confirmed off a model of Sonic with humanoid eyes and enamel. The flurry of memes that adopted led to a full-on public apology from director Jeff Fowler, who assured audiences that they’d change the closely memed new design earlier than the movie’s launch.
That in flip led to issues from many, who suspected that preserving the movie’s authentic early-November launch date would imply a summer time filled with insufferable schedule crunch for results artists tasked with fixing the look of a CGI character that seems in a majority of the movie. Individuals may’ve carried out loads of guttural yelling on line upon taking a look at Sonic, however that doesn’t imply that the alternatives of the individuals who designed the character are the fault of those that constructed it to their specs.
Now, in a transfer most likely fortunate for all concerned, Fowler introduced on Twitter right this moment that the discharge date has been pushed again three months, with the intention to accomodate the adjustments:

Effectively, not less than if a studio goes to offer in to the probably-actually-only-half-serious calls for of the general public, not less than it’s not going to come back on the expense of below-the-line employees. Sonic the Hedgehog will now arrive on February 14th, 2020, simply in time for all of the Valentine’s Day lovers.
