Wait what?

They LISTENED?

Talk about taking their time in doing so. I appreciate that they realise mistakes have been made in the end though. Do I think this is going to fix everything with the movie? No. Do I think this is a step in the right direction? Yes

Considering this movie is the director's first feature length. He was perhaps more open to criticism than a veteran director would be

Unless they announce a delay for the film's release and/or they start overworking the animators HARD (the latter of which is a terrible thought), I don't see the design changing much from what we've already seen.

Either way, changing Sonic's look alone isn't gonna convince me to see this. I found the trailer to be unremarkable at best, with Carrey being the only standout thing (even though he's really just playing a typical Jim Carrey role, not the Eggman I know and love to hate).

Good. Good. Maybe I can sleep well tonight. It won't save the movie much but at least it'll make that design look slightly less hideous and not make me kill it with fire. Maybe.

So yeah we all know the plot is going to be as basic as it gets, but yeah considering it was the Directors first time ever, I don't blame them. We all start from somewhere, and honestly this movie is playing it safe for a reason, however I'm glad they listened to the fans. Y'know. FOR ONCE.

Welp, looks like the film's officially getting delayed:

...Neat, I guess? As I said before, changing Sonic's design isn't enough to get me interested in this thing. But hey, this news is bound to please some others.

It pleases me

Pleases me because it means the poor people modelling Sonic's look and animating it got the extra time they needed after being passed on the need to redo Sonic

This is actually really good news.  You don't change a release date on the fly.  There's a lot of prep, marketing, and of course MONEY tied into it.  So the fact they're changing it shows that they think it will be much better to do what could be a significant redesign.  And maybe, just maybe, that someone actually cares about this film...

Okay... I was not disgusted by the design... which with the fur and separate eyes is not there... but it's close enough that it doesn't distract me

As for the trailer itself... I mean... the humour is kinda eh to me but I suppose it's a little more for kids. Music makes more sense than Gangsta's Paradise

Would I see it? Potentially. I was unimpressed by Detective Pikachu's trailer and I really enjoyed that film

Well... they actually fixed him. 
They actually listened to the feedback.

But most importantly, they ACTUALLY made him look less like an abomination of human imagination and more like Sonic the Hedgehog... 

Watching that trailer kinda gave me a little bit of hope for the movie.

It's a huge improvement... something that wasn't that difficult to achieve in the first place.

I gotta admit, I genuinelly like the new/more classic design, as some of you, gives me hope, seems we'll see the ACTUAL SONIC in the Sonic the Hedgehog movie. Wow. What an acomplishment. 
BUUUUUUUUUUT let's not forget: the generic hollywood-esque "alien creature befriends human guy in need for a filial figure and tries to escape from the USA military while discovering the power of [insert POSSITIVE VALUE here]" is still there.

And so is Jim Carrey as white Blade doctor Robotnik.

And so are the silly jokes (although some of them made me laugh)

As well as the strange reconceptualization of Sonic's powerset: like electric powers (although at least they made a Flash reference that makes me think they knew how similar that lightning thingy is) or the energy-charged falling quills.

 

I had the intention of watching the movie anyway, but now I know I won't puke because of the visuals.

To me, this trailer is better than the previous one not only because of the design, but because Sonic feels like Sonic. 

Also, shows more action and less real-world stuff, so maybe that's why the overall footage seems better.

Design is much much better. I mean the movie's probably still gonna bomb but at least the design is no longer an unholy abomination. Good job Tyson Hesse.

My honest opinion? They had a missed opportunity in the music choice. They could have used the SA2 rendition of It Doesn't Matter. Blitzkrieg Bop works as well, though. The trailer is great, regardless of music.
