Sonic the Hedgehog Fan Improves the Movie's Version With a Simple Rework

Fans were treated to the live-action Sonic the Hedgehog movie trailer earlier, and to the surprise of no one, not many people were a fan. It would seem that the issue many have is not with the trailer itself, but with the design of the titular speedster. Whether it's his more humanoid proportions or even his teeth, some fans are just not on board with the way Sonic looks. That said, one dedicated fan was quick to get to work on a bit of a redesign, which some have deemed to be far better than what the movie's version looks like.

Twitter user "EdwardPun1" took to the social media site to share their rework of the live-action Sonic the Hedgehog. As can be seen in the images below, the differences aren't that large, but they appear to make a world of difference. Instead of looking like a child in pajamas, it actually looks more like the iconic character we have all come to love.

As stated above, the differences are minimal, but they are as significant as can be. Just a widening of the eyes, a bit of separation of the torso and legs, and making the front paws a little larger turned what many have deemed a monstrosity into the actual Sonic the Hedgehog.

Here is what some of the fans had to say after seeing Edward's rework:

How studios can't understand this sort of thing may be a question that remains unanswered for some time. However, all we know is the sonic seen in the trailer above is what we have to look forward to when the Sonic the Hedgehog movie drops on November 8th.
