Paramount has taken another bite at the trailer for Sonic the Hedgehog after fans freaked out about its previous incarnation.
The studio dropped a new trailer featuring the computer game hero, this time with slightly less human teeth and bigger eyes. There’s also no sign of the character’s sculpted calves.
This comes after director Jeff Fowler responded to fans’ concerns in May and admitted that it would redesign the character. Paramount subsequently moved the release date from November 8 to February 14.
The live-action/animated hybrid film stars Jim Carrey as Dr. Robotnik, along with James Marsden, Tika Sumpter Natasha Rothwell, Neal McDonough, Adam Pally and Ben Schwartz as the voice of Sonic.
Sonic the Hedgehog follows the (mis)adventures of Sonic as he navigates the complexities of life on Earth with his newfound – human – best friend Tom Wachowski (Marsden). Sonic and Tom join forces to try and stop the villainous Dr. Robotnik from capturing Sonic and using his immense powers for world domination. Fowler directs from a script by Patrick Casey, Josh Miller and Oren Uziel, with story by Casey and Miller.
Hajime Satomi, Haruki Satomi, Masanao Maeda, Toby Ascher, Nan Morales and Tim Miller executive produce. Moritz, Toru Nakahara and Takeshi Ito are the producers.
