The sonic trailer was terrible... But it wasn't just the visual effects. The feel, plot and style all looked terrible. A new sonic model will look nice but the film will still be a poorly written comedy that's 20 years too late.
Is it? Perhaps I may give it a try. I can't say as I have ever really appreciated any of the cartoon Sonic adaptations. I can't even think what the strawberry float Sonic Underground was supposed to be aiming at!
I just recall seeing the initial images of the Sonic Boom character designs and thinking "what the hell have they done to my childhood?" and therefore dismissed the whole thing!
Little did I know that much greater sins were yet to be committed in the world of terrible Sonic character design.

Isn’t that exactly what they’re doing?
Well they've been on a two year schedule (2015, 2017, 2019) so they're only really "resting" for one year if the next saga starts in 2022.
It does feel a bit much. We had 16 years from the original trilogy to the prequels (both of which were released on a 3 year cycle rather than the compressed 2 year one we have now). Over a span of 28 years from 1977 to 2005 we had 6 Star Wars films. If they stick to the schedule from that tweet then in the space of 11 years from 2015 to 2026 Disney will have put out at least 9 movies - more if they revive the spin off stuff. To me that seems like overkill, especially as they haven't exactly been keeping the quality consistent so far...

True, but not every franchise needs to follow the same release structure. To me the precedent of a Star Wars movie being "A Big Deal™" that we only see every few years makes it feel more exciting. Also like I say, I don't think the quality has been there from Star Wars lately.
I think the Marvel approach is different in that they are working with a wider cast of characters and the movies that we get each year are more focused titles - they are telling a broader story (or set of stories) from a different set of perspectives. We don't get an Avengers movie every year (except when we do... )
It's just too much in too short a space of time. Fatigue sets in, the franchise becomes run-of-the-mill and less of a spectacle or "event", the shine comes off and you just see the money machine behind it. I'm so bored of Star Wars now.
