The Sonic of the Movie The Hedgehog is of huge interest to fans of both the original video game franchise and animated films, simply because the original CG hybrid movie revealed a trailer that became the butt of a thousand jokes. Most of the responses to Sonic's new design were negative with criticisms ranging from anything as human as Sonic's teeth to human as his feet, and the movie surprisingly slowed down shortly after to rework that design. A new designer photo from a while ago, which at first glance shows that work on this design is nearing its end, and now a new photo of this design has made its way online.
@TailsChannel on Twitter shared a picture of an alleged new design spotted on a new stand for the Sonic the Hedgehog movie. It seems to be in line with the redesigned design seen earlier, but this is not confirmed at this time. You can see the photo in question below.

If this is the new design for the Sonic the Hedgehog, it's definitely more about what fans are used to from the video game appearances of the famous speedster. With a new squat design, more cartoon eyes and shoes, closer to the iconic red and white shoes seen in the original games, this supposed redesign is popular with fans for some reason.
