Cape Town - A new trailer for the Sonic the Hedgehog movie was released on Tuesday, and it features a redesigned titular character.

This comes after the film’s director took critic on board and made some much-needed changes after the initial trailer was released in earlier this year.

Writing about the trailer, The Guardian’s Keith Stuart said the cartoon character: "resembles a cheap knock-off Sonic toy your child might win at a fairground stand and then be terrified of".

The film features Jim Carrey as Dr Robotnik alongside the animated character and about the particularly nasty backlash, Jeff Fowler, the film’s director, tweeted: "The message is loud and clear... you aren’t happy with the design & you want changes. It’s going to happen."


The film is due for release on 14 February 2020 in America.
