In an interview with The Wrap, Jim Carrey referred to audience collaboration on the Sonic the Hedgehog Movie as a Frankenstein’s Monster project.

Carrey, who stars as Doctor Robotnik, said the following: “I don’t know quite how I feel about the audience being in on the creation of it, while it’s happening.” He went on to say, “We’ll have to see what that entails…Sometimes you find that the collective consciousness decides it wants something and then when it gets it, it goes, ‘OK, I don’t want it.'”

While a good idea initially, there were some drawbacks to the extra input. For one, the movie was delayed by three months to make some visual adjustments, after receiving fan criticism of Sonic’s fur, eyes, and oddly human-looking teeth.

In the end, Jim Carrey was unsure if fans should have much input on a large scale project like a movie, saying:

“You become a Frankenstein’s monster at some point right?” he said, adding that the re-worked character won’t mean he has to do reshoots. “I don’t really concern myself with things once I did my thing. I’m not super concerned about it. It’s gonna happen how it happens. It’s either going to be a good thing or a bad thing.”
