The funniest part about the director of Sonic promising to redesign and replace the lead character in the next six months is that it encapsulates how the movie got like this in the first place, and can only make things worse.
I doubt they were already doing it: if they were committed to a redesign they wouldn't have dropped a trailer when they could have easily held it until June without it being weird (release isn't until November).
The speed at which they pivoted, however, is a solid indicator that the subject has already been a point of tension internally.
Even dumbass studio executives don't deliberately gamble with poisoning their brand. They do it by accident often enough.
Now, will the next trailer focus heavily on the redesign including a hastily-written "self-aware" gag commenting on it?
