Washington D.C. [USA], May 3 (ANI): After the trailer of the live-action reboot of 'Sonic the Hedgehog' released on Wednesday, the fans took to Twitter and criticised the director over the appearance of the lead character, Sonic.
Sonic in the trailer was featured with human teeth, despite being a hedgehog which irked some fans while some expressed their dissatisfaction over the disproportionate legs of Sonic.
Variety followed the director of the film, Jeff Fowler, who replied to the fans with a tweet. He tweeted, "The message is loud and clear," Fowler wrote on Twitter Thursday. "You aren't happy with the design & you want changes. It's going to happen. Everyone at Paramount & Sega are fully committed to making this character the BEST he can be." The trailer which released on May 1, opens with Sonic whizzing by police sheriff Tom Wachowski, played by James Marsden. The sheriff registers 760 mph on his speed radar device and is instantly shocked.
The sheriff later finds a blue strand of hair charged with what seems like electricity.
The trailer also features Jim Carrey as Sonic's arch-nemesis, Dr. Robotnik. Sporting a cartoonish moustache, and shooting funny dialogues, Carrey keeps his charters both humorous and villainous at the same time.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the plot of the film revolves around the journey of Sonic, voiced by Ben Schwartz, and Marsden's Tom Wachowski, as they try to defeat Sonic's arch-nemesis, Dr Robotnik.
The film is scheduled to hit the movie theatres in November. (ANI)
