Sonic the Hedgehog movie release date gets pushed back to next year

Sonic the Hedgehog movie release date

After a strange-looking image emerged of Sonic for the upcoming movie, fans were split down the middle about whether they could get used to how the spiky-haired hedgehog would look. Now though the artists have some much needed time as the Sonic the Hedgehog movie release date gets a delay.

When is the Sonic the Hedgehog movie release date?

A tweet from Jeff Fowler, the Sonic the Hedgehog movie Director emerged, we now have a Sonic the Hedgehog movie release date of February 2020. Originally the movie was going to be released this year on November 8th, but Sonic is being given a fresh makeover which is being kept on the down-low for now.

The announcement from Fowler on Twitter is below, which we’ve probably read into too much…. Check out the arm holding the sign in the image attached to the tweet, you’ll recall the more recent depiction of Sonic has muscular arms and got rid of the white gloves we’re used to.

We usually see the arm above in the Sonic video games, but the hardcore fans will argue that Sonic’s arms are usually just blue – almost like wearing a blue all-in-one. If you recall the Sonic Boom titles, he bares this blue arm trait so perhaps at the Sonic the Hedgehog movie release date Sonic will resemble something along those lines.
The second thing that drew us in was slap-bang in the middle of the sign showing the old-style sonic logo which originally came from the Sonic we knew in the 90s games. Back then his spikes were shorter than they are now, take the logo with a pinch of salt though as it may not depict what the he’ll look like at all at the Sonic the Hedgehog movie release date – considering the logo covers the whole Sonic franchise.
Dissecting the Sonic the Hedgehog movie release date tweet a little more, check out the hashtag being used by Fowler. The artists revamping the look of Sonic had concerns it might mean some intensive hours, so the additional three months being able to redesign him should ease some of the pressure. Although it’ll still be a fairly mammoth task to get the blue-haired speedster just right.

I've been a gamer ever since I was old enough to hold a controller, early 90's to be exact. My first console was a NES, with my favourite games ranging from Super Mario to Duck Hunt. Fast forward almost 30 years and I'm now a PS4, PC and Switch player. My ideal genres are RPG and RTS titles, so Assassin's Creed, Kingdom Hearts, Viv 6 and Two Point Hospital are included in my mix.

Have your say!
