We're all pretty familar now with the story of the Sonic the Hedgehog movie and, specifically, the design of the Blue Blur himself and the subequent reaction to the trailer. Now it seems the film will indeed be pushed back as Sonic gets his promised redesign.

Jeff Fowler, the movie's director, has tweeted an image that shows Sonic's glove holding a sign with a new date of February 14, 2020 with the caption 'Taking a little more time to make Sonic just right' followed by the hashtag #NoVFXartistswereharmedinthemakingofthismovie – which seems to indicate the film will now be coming out on Valentine's Day next year.

The Sonic the Hedgehog movie was originally set to come out November this year, so this tweet clearly appears to be a response to the concerns that changing the design this late in production may have resulted in unnecessary crunch for the designers.
