Sonic the Hedgehog was a success for Paramount, incomes $70 million in its first 4 days in theaters this February, according to Variety. However, the movie initially had some controversy due to the design of its titular character.

The first design for Sonic’s film illustration was unusually (horrifyingly) humanlike. The backlash to the look was robust sufficient that Paramount delayed the primary film from November to February to repair Sonic’s look. Sonic’s last design appeared significantly better, harkening again his iconic look from the Sonic video video games.

“The new Sonic is so adorable that it almost makes up for a pretty generic plot and a human cast that play the roles of ‘heroic’ and ‘bad’ so straight, they could be extras in The Good Place,” mentioned former Verge staffer Dami Lee in her evaluation of the movie.

It’s unclear if Ben Schwartz might be again because the voice of Sonic or if Jim Carrey will return as Dr. Robotnik for the sequel, however it looks as if a protected wager that they’ll return.
