Fans, you can have a weird, human-looking Sonic the Hedgehog, this year, or a less strange Sonic the Hedgehog later.
The filmmakers based on the video game Sega announced Friday that it would be later. Like, next year later.
The film director tweeted a new release date for the film, starring Jim Carrey and James Marsden: Valentine's Day 2020.
Backlash was vicious when fans saw what the anthropomorphized hedgehog would look like in the November 2019 movie. Umbrage was swept away on Sonic's "scary human teeth" and on a lean muscular body.
So vicious, in fact, that the creators took note of it and said that they would give people what they want.
"The message is clear and clear … you're not happy with the design and you want some changes," said director Jeff Fowler. "It will happen. Everyone at Paramount & Sega is committed to making this character the BEST that it can be … #sonicmovie #gottafixfast. "
