    That blue humanoid furry thing... I remember that I showed the first trailer to my nephew who is 5 years old. He even acknowledged that that thing didn't look like Sonic. He knows what Sonic looks like, mainly because of Super Smash Bros. Then the new trailer came out. It definitely looks like a Sonic. Granted, his arms are blue but at least it's Sonic.

    They should release the old Sonic cut on Blu-ray just to see how it was like before the producer who thought it was a great idea got fired.

    It's the uncanny valley. Sonic is a cartoon character. If you make him too real, you have to make choices that are creepy. The redesign is much closer to the original Sonic from the games.

    That 1st revision was a travesty and in no way resembled the Sonic character from any of the games.
    Thew redesign is far better.

    Goes to show that sometimes the fans really do know best! Everyone speaking out about Sonic's terrible design, and Paramount actually LISTENING and taking on that feedback seems like it might have saved the movie!

    I could see how the designer was going for a more 'real' look to fit in with the live action and kind of a shame they didn't quite manage it. Props for trying tho.

    I'm honestly trying to figure out why and who the hell thought that first design was okay to use.

    Sad to hear that the company that did this redesign is shutting down. The VFX industry is messed up.

      Moss Doerksen This is why it was annoying when people thought it was a publicity stunt (either from children, who I will cut some slack, or grown ass adults who don’t work for a living) While this visual change was good, it fucked in a lot of lives in the process.

    I'm so grateful for the redesign. I will watch this in theaters just because they did this for us. The first sonic was an insult. This redesign does my childhood justice.

    the fisrt one was amazing, im tlking about the realism, ugly design. So the realism of the first one whit the design of the second one could be really good.

    That old design was so awful, that Jigsaw would use it as a torture device on his victims

    The new trailer is the real one. The first release was a troll trailer to garner attention and to allow signalling to fans post-fact just how much Paramount cares.
