After public backlash following the trailer, Paramount Pictures has decided to push back the release of their live-action Sonic The Hedgehog movie three months to focus on the redesign of their title character.
Director Jeff Fowler took to Twitter to make the announcement that the film will now hit theaters on February 14, 2019.
