The voice of Sonic the Hedgehog in the upcoming movie has recently gone on record to IGN to tell them that he’s ‘excited’ about the character redesign.
‘I haven’t seen the final thing yet, but I’m very excited. Because of the fans, they’re changing it, and I think it’s going to be great,’ Ben Schwartz told the outlet at San Diego Comic Con. ‘The way it seems to be going, I think people are going to be really excited. It’s incredible to me that the fans spoke, and the people at Paramount, Jeff Fowler, our producers all listened and said “hey, you know, we can do this.” So something special is coming.’
For those who somehow missed the first trailer, find it below. The original design was met with horror as the Sonic design looked nothing like that videogame version, instead looking like a strange morph suit.
