Sonic Creators' Response

On December 11th, 2018, the Twitter account for @SonicJPNews tweeted responses from Sonic creators Naoto Ohshima, Sonic Unleashed character designer Gurihiru, Shiro Maekawa and Yuji Naka:[8]

Ohshima: "Sonic is a fairy of hedgehog, so he doesn't need to be designed closer to a real hedgehog even in a live action. Mickey doesn't become a mouse in live action, does he? Because they are fairies who can live on when people believe in them."
Gurihiru: "I've heard that Sonic movie was going to be a mixture of live action and animation, but I haven't expected this…"
Maekawa: "Wooow, they made a totally unexpected arrangement there *rofl*."
Yuji Naka: "From the comments here, it looks like it's very badly received. I wonder if the movie is actually good when you watch it. I see many movies based on anime or games are unpopular. I wonder why that happens…"
