This shows how far off the design is. It's like a reverse uncanny valley.— Super Duper (@superduperstuf) April 30, 2019
I just... I want to enjoy this film... original Sonic is a defining childhood memory... and I'm glad if you're happy with it so far... but damn it looks terrible to me.#SonicTheHedgehog pic.twitter.com/xMQd0rQAvN

Another suggested it might be worse than the Super Mario Bros film.
However, fans seemed to think that Jim Carrey was a redeeming feature.
Fandom wrote: "If nothing else, the #SonicTheHedgehog trailer is serving us some strong Jim Carrey looks"
Pemj2k commented on YouTube: "Funny enough, the best part of this trailer was the ending shot of Jim Carrey looking decently like Robotnik."
