While normally the public doesn't really know what causes these kinds of delays, this time the public caused this delay thanks to the barrage of complaints levied against the design of the titular hedgehog after the first trailer dropped in April. And as you can see at the bottom of this post, the movie's trailer has already been viewed more than 31 million times on YouTube - again, partly over the shocking Sonic character design that turned off so many people. Shortly after the internet had its way with the original trailer, director Jeff Fowler announced that changes were coming - though that left some anxious that a bunch of VFX artists were about to work major overtime to change Sonic's look.
Sonic the Hedgehog will now be released next Valentine's Day.
The news came via a tweet from director Jeff Fowler. And the criticism. The message is loud and clear... you aren't happy with the design and you want changes.

Amazon reportedly developing a wearable that recognizes human emotions
As with any Lab126 project, there's no telling whether or not the Dylan wearable will ever actually see the light of day. This new device is one way to accomplish that, along with the new wireless Bluetooth earbuds that Amazon is working on.
"The power of sonic fans is incredible", reads a translated version of a recent tweet from Yuji Naka. "Everyone at Paramount and Sega are fully committed to making this character the BEST he can be..." In the original cartoon, Sonic's legs are thin whereas in the new movie they appear much more shapely and human-like. Jim Carrey will be playing the villain Dr Ivo Robotnic and seems to be giving it full 1990's Jim Carrey, which could be good.
Actor Ben Schwartz, who is voicing Sonic, also chimed in, implying that the white glove on the illustration would be a part of the new design.
