Pokémon Detective Pikachu is coming out this month to the excitement of many fans across the world. However, when it comes to beloved video game characters jumping to the big screens, not everyone is as lucky as Pikachu. When it was announced that Sonic the Hedgehog is getting his own live-action movie, fans were pretty excited. Unfortunately, the hype died down with the first glimpses of the character design and people's reactions turned into a complete riot by the time the first trailer dropped at the end of April.

Why is everyone unhappy? Well, one only needs to take a single look at Sonic to see that something is... off. The majority of people couldn't help but notice that their once beloved cartoonish hedgehog now has a human-like anatomy that makes him look simply uncanny. The other feature that many couldn't overlook without freaking out is his teeth. Fans kept poking fun at the character, drawing comparisons and creating memes.

The public outcry soon forced the creators to take another look at what they've created and soon enough, the director of the film, Jeff Fowler, made an announcement on Twitter. Fowler reassured fans that the creative team behind Sonic the Hedgehog take fans seriously and their message has been heard. He went on to confirm that they intend to change Sonic's design by finishing the tweet with a hashtag #gottafixfast

Sonic The Hedgehog game franchise was produced by Sega back in 1991 and it played a major role in many of today's millennial's childhoods. Sonic was created after the team of creators were requested to make a new mascot that would replace Alex Kidd and would also compete with Nintendo's mascot, Mario.

Usually, Sonic's main goal is to stop its antagonist, Doctor Eggman, who wants to dominate the world. In the new Sonic movie, the role of Doctor Eggman was given to Jim Carrey and many state that he might be the best part of the upcoming movie.

This one gives more meaning to a Korean pun I once saw in Busan. "Luggage" and "burden" in Korean is 짐. Phonetically that sounds close to "Jim". So there was a luggage service with the name, well, basically "Jim Carry".

Once the trailer for the new Sonic movie was released, the Internet went absolutely wild. All of the social media platforms were filled with memes and comments about the terrible representation of this iconic character. Luckily, the creators quickly understood their mistake and changed it. Now everyone is waiting impatiently to see what will be changed in this character's appearance.

Let's face it, the Sonic design from Sonic X/Adventure/Adventure 2 made him look badass, instead of fat, and this makes him look like a kid is trapped between human form, and morphing into his hedgehog form. I do like Ben Schwartz' voice for him, though.

That’s not an insult. That’s why everyone works. The sonic looks terrible but please don’t ever think any big budget movie is ever made for any reason other than money. Avengers, Harry Potter, Pikachu, all those movies are made for money also.
