Sanic the Hideous Hedgehog ha iniciado esta petición dirigida a Paramount Pictures

Yes, the character design for Sonic in the trailer for the 'Sonic the Hedgehog' movie is all kinds of ugly and creepy. Plenty of people complained on social media (ourselves included) and the director has thus pledged to redesign it for the final movie. BUT hear us out: we wouldn't want it otherwise

1. Yes, ideally we would be getting an animated film that respects the designs and settings of the games, but this one seems as far from that as possible, hideous Sonic or not. The trailer makes it look like an updated version of 'Howard the Duck' and this has us... intrigued. If this is the path you, the studio and creators, have decided to take, we want to see it through to the end.

2. This character was designed with a whole art direction in mind. Will the new Sonic fit in or stick out?

3. A bad movie with a good Sonic would be just forgettable, whereas a bad movie with THAT Sonic seems the stuff of so-bad-it's-good legend. In a few years, Hideous Humanoid Sonic is going to be remembered more than whatever quick fix you make now.

4. The internet LOVES ugly Sonics. Remember "dumb-running Sonic", look for "Sanic" on Google Images, or dare the check the countless Ugandan Knuckles memes (it is better not to). And 'Sonic Boom' kind of made ugly Sonics official, anyway. Modern day Sonic is a paladin of the weird. Go play 'Sonic Dreams Collection' if you need further proof.

5. Most of us that complained are not going to see the film anyway. Kids will eat it up no matter what (trust us, we loved 'Howard the Duck' at the time). A movie as bad as, or worse than, 'Super Mario Bros.'? It'll be a cult movie in a few years (check 'SMB Movie Archive'), and that means long-term, constant profit.

6. In an age where everything is tested to exhaustion, where every creative decision is focus-grouped until it becomes bland enough to be marketable, offbeat and (probably) failed studio films remind us there are humans behind them. We don't want movies to be made by algorithms, we want creative failures to remind us of the inherent risks in moviemaking.

7. It's impossible to please everyone. If you change Hideous Humanoid Sonic, you'll have people asking you to release the original cut sooner than later (see: Snyder Cut). Take the cheap route and don't change the abomination we are still convincing ourselves wasn't a nightmare.

7. Finally, and perhaps most important, what about the VFX artists that are going to be crunched to death to partially fix an unfixable thing?

Stick to your guns. Save Hideous Humanoid Sonic and give us whatever you were trying to achieve to begin with. It'll be cheaper for you, more exciting for outraged or ironic fans, and more fascinating for fans or the weird. Keep Sonic ugly.
