Sonic the Hedgehog director Jeff Fowler has delayed the film's release date.

News comes weeks after it was announced that the titular character would be getting a redesign after criticism of the initial trailers.

At the time, concerns were voiced over what this would mean for designers and animators working on the film, as long hours and crunch seemed inevitable to meet the November release date.

It seems the studio heard those concerns, as the film will now be release in February, 2020.
