  • the fisrt one was amazing, im tlking about the realism, ugly design. So the realism of the first one whit the design of the second one could be really good.

  • The new trailer is the real one. The first release was a troll trailer to garner attention and to allow signalling to fans post-fact just how much Paramount cares.

  • I feel like there are more things they could do to improve his design. But honestly I didn't have my hopes up to start with when they showed off the first one. That being said this one is definitely much better and the rig seems to work better for the animators since they're giving him better movement.

  • Oh I understand the guy in 1st scene. I would be scaried too when I see awful thing like that old Sonic. The only thing I would like to do in that moment is to grab my shotgun and kill it before it plant it's eggs. New Sonic looks like original cute character I loved.

  • Redesign every single time👌🏼Thank god we’re in this timeline. There’s some poor suckers in another dimension stuck with the original. Seriously though this could be a watershed moment for studios to listen to the customers for once as it does make a difference.

  • I do wonder if this was all a stunt, they had it like the redesign all along and changed it to grab people attention. This was done so they get more people to watch the film as it going around on the internet, so in a way, yes ads are getting smarter.

  • I don't think it is really better of course the it looks more let's say beautiful but it is rushed and kinda looks copy pasted from the game. The old one has the better SGI and more furr

  • I can see why people would *potentially* like the first design, it was realistic, (as realistic a anthro blue hedgehog can get) but if you pay attention to the trailer, sonic isn't from a realistic world. He comes from a naturally cartoony universe, as seen when he is in green hill *zone.* The realistic design would make him SO out of place in his own universe, and not make sense.
