After unleashing a monstrosity last April, the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog film has revealed a new design for the blue hero – and it looks majestic compared to the previous iteration.
The newest take ditches the gangly arms and human teeth of its predecessor, opting for a more faithful (and adorable) adaptation of the video game character.
Sonic the Hedgehog, which also stars Jim Carrey as Dr. Robotnik, initially faced severe backlash for the creepy attempt to humanize Sonic’s look. Now, it’s safe to say fans are happy – and grateful – that production listened to the critics.
