The video game icon probably looks different than you might remember...and with good reason.

The facelift comes after horrified backlash from fans after the original "Sonic the Hedgehog" movie trailer received back in April.

Sonic looked drastically different from the lovable hedgehog many had grown up with.

Fans had overwhelmingly positive responses on Twitter to this new redesign.

"Sonic the Hedgehog" will be in theaters in February.

It stars Jim Carrey as Sonic’s archenemy Doctor Robotnik (or Eggman in some installments) and James Marsden as Sheriff Tom Wachowsk, Sonic’s new human sidekick.
