It isn’t every day that a studio listens to the audience. Sure, they may take a look at the performance of a movie and adjust things going forward, but it’s rare that they’ll actually stop what they’re doing, delay a film, and redesign an entire lead character just to please fans. And yet, that’s exactly what Jeff Fowler did for the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog movie.

You may recall the trailer that dropped around six months ago, and it was met with a thud from fans. While many of the jokes weren’t landing, perhaps the biggest problem was sonic himself, who ventured heavily into the uncanny valley. We’ve since seen supposed glimpses of the character’s redesign, and now we have a whole other look thanks to a fan Twitter account.

While we still don’t have any official confirmation that these are actually legit, but the fact that we’ve now seen a few images seems to point to this actually being legit.

Either way, I think it’s a huge step up from what came before. I don’t know if it will actually do much, but if fan response to these images is any indication, it does seem like they have earned many fans’ good faith.

What do you think of this supposed redesign? Let us know down below!
