So apparently, even Naka himself had to weigh in on this terrible movie 'woe' or sorts'. He had this to say on twitter!
"Looking at this(Sonic’s full-body visual), it makes me realize the importance of the character’s head-to-body ratio and the roundness of his stomach. Couldn’t they have created a design with a better balance than this?"
To me, this seems like a very nice and professional way to say "F*%&, that's horrid. Please stop this with my child!"
What an odd era for the speedster. ~ Yuji Naka also stated,
"If the image of Sonic's movie comes out only from this(Movie's) formula, I think that it's strategically leaked, but it is not good because it will go to the IP of Sonic when it becomes a topic in a bad direction(Hurtful to sonic). Well, there is a possibility of fan made(fans helping the design), but I want you to wear gloves.(He doesn't want fans taking the gloves off) It is shocking that the bare hands are white."
A Fan's Suggestion!~
