Based on the trailer, I really don't think just fixing the character design will result in an interesting film.

Still baffled they went down the path of Sonic invading our world, when it would have been far more interesting to set the movie in Sonic's world (even if they had a human audience stand in for people to relate to).
It could pay off if the very end of the trailer shows that Eggman follows Sonic back to his world. I like the idea of him making Eggman lose his mind and setting him up as the villain in Sonic's world.

Where was this rumored?
Jeff Fowler tweeted out this drawing to announce the delay:


People started speculating that Tyson Hesse was the artist behind it, which was basically confirmed when he posted an image of RDJ at the end of the first Iron Man movie where he announces he's Iron Man.

edit: lol whoops, uh yea what P-Bo said

At work right now, so I can't link everything--basically he teased on Twitter that he's had involvement with the movie, and when asked by fans to confirm, he posted a gif of that one Ironman 1 scene--you know the one.

Ah, really nice. That's just about the best starting point they can get.

Just to note, this is still strictly rumor only. There was some other name they brought in to assist with the redesign last I remember, but it wasn't Tyson. We'll just have to see when they come out with it.

Unless they completely change the script around, I doubt it. As I've said before, they can fix the problem with his eyes, but as long as Sonic's out there palling with a cop, they can't fix the problem with his soul

They can change the design all they want. It's still going to be fucking terrible since it has the whole buddy cop schtick. FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCKKKKKKKKKKKKK

Tim Miller: "This redesign will please fans."
Arrested Development narrator: "It wouldn't, but this inattention to detail was typical of the laziness Hollywood was known for."

This. Sonic could look perfect, but the movie is gonna be garbage based on the premise alone.

I don't care what you guys say I'm excited for this movie and the trailer made me smile throughout. Good or trainwreck. It doesn't matter. I'll be entertained. It's win win.

Ok if they got Tyson Hesse to help redesign him it's going to look great. Sorry lazy trolls who want everything Sonic to be catastrophically terrible.

There's probably only so much they'll be able to do (proportions will likely have to stay similar in order to keep the rigging intact) but they should be able to fix the face, hands and eyes relatively easily. Too much to ask for to give his shoes the white stripe rather than just have him running around in plain red sneakers?

So they went full steam ahead against Sega's opinion on the design, then they were 'with the fans' once they realized it was a disaster and wouldn't sell tickets.

No mention of the choice of music in the trailer.....

I know it's summer and hot, but it's always
"the fans"
"for the fans"
"to please the fans"
"s–t hit the fan, [...]The fans have a voice in this too." (the guy threw feces at the fan, of course the fan was going to be vocal about it)
...
cannot they just say people who liked the games ?
I am not that


Yeah.. sorry... all for that one joke...
it's late :)

Back to subject...Sonic and humans don't mix well to me... i find it very poor to have sonic in human world, i would have preferred they made a full animation movie... so not only a redesign of Sonic, but complete rework of the fundamentals, the fuck up is more profound.
