Well, this was rather inevitable.
When the first trailer for the new 'Sonic the Hedgehog' movie dropped three weeks ago, there was an instant backlash from fans who weren't happy with how the little blue fella looked.
As a result, director Jeff Fowles announced that they had listened to the criticism and were re-designing the character.
Of course, not only does this mean that it's going to cost the studio more money, but inevitably it means that the film's release will be delayed.
That's now been confirmed; while 'Sonic the Hedgehog' was initially scheduled for a December 2019 release, it's now been pushed back - but not too far - until February 14th, 2020.
Fowles updated fans via Twitter:

Thank you for listening to the fans. You guys made the right call. I have much higher hopes for this movie now because you guys are showing that you are listening.
Good on you and good luck to you and your crew!
