Sonic The Hedgehog Is Back With Better Teeth

The first attempt at the Sonic the Hedgehog movie trailer was slammed by fans, now they've given it another go and he's missing some teeth.

Sonic is back with a new look after the previous trailer showed him with "human-like" teeth.

The re-designed character made his debut in Paramount Pictures "Sonic the Hedgehog" movie trailer and fans are more pleased with the popular character's look this time around.

After the first official movie trailer was released in April, fans immediately pushed back on the character's look.

"WHY ARE HIS TEETH SO HUMAN," one Twitter user posted back then.

After the criticism, movie director Jeff Fowler announced on Twitter that Paramount and SEGA were "committed to making this character the BEST he can be" and said they would be re-designing the blue hedgehog.

Sonic fans now seemed impressed given that the character's new look comes with bigger eyes and fewer teeth.

"Thank goodness they changed Sonic's look," one Twitter user wrote.

"At least now I won't have nightmares."

Others think the movie has been "saved".

According to US media the original budget for the movie was estimated at $90 million, but the re-animation of the character could have been expensive.

Paramount has pushed the release date back from November to February 14 2020.

The live-action film follows the iconic SEGA video game character during some adventures on earth with his newfound human best friend, played by actor James Marsden.

Jim Carrey is also in the movie and plays Sonic's nemesis Doctor Robotnik.
