'Sonic The Hedgehog' Movie Trailer Drops With Brand New Design
The second trailer for the live-action Sonic The Hedgehog movie has officially dropped, and I think we can all agree, it's going to go down a bit better than the last one did when it was released earlier this year.
Why? Because the famous hedgehog finally looks like Sonic actually should - the video game icon we all know and love.
Designers for the game got more than a bit of stick last time, when the first version looked a bit like a creepy blue monster with human teeth and bright blue skin.
But - and this is an important lesson to learn - thanks to a bit of kicking off, the people got what they want and SEGA and Paramount redesigned the character. As promised, they've managed to come up with a hugely improved Sonic.
This means that instead of fighting the urge to scream, we can simply sit back and enjoy the trailer for what looks like a genuinely fun movie.

The new Sonic The Hedgehog sees everybody's favourite blue hedgehog (voiced by Ben Schwartz) team up with Green Hills Sheriff Tom Wachowski (James Marsden) to try and save the world from various unexplained anomalies.
Jim Carrey - who else - plays the ridiculously over the top Dr Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik. He's called in by the army to help with Sonic's mission, developing an unhealthy obsession with him.
With Sonic finally looking great and Jim looking like he's turned in an absolute vintage Carrey performance, it looks like fans will be taken right back to their youth - with kids able to enjoy it afresh.
Obviously, you always have to take films like this at face value, and it's unlikely to be ground-breaking cinema when it's released on 14 February. It probably won't go down well with critics, but who cares - long time fans of the character will most likely flock to see it.
And now the design has been changed, people can finally start to get excited about the return of their favourite video game characters.
Of course, we can expect it to be ridiculous, doused in nostalgia and just what Sonic fans were waiting for.
