Sonic 2 is on its way
After the success of Sonic the Hedgehog (2020), a production that grossed nearly $ 300 million internationally and became the second highest grossing film of 2020 to date, Paramount Pictures and SEGA confirmed that they are already working in a new film of the most popular blue hedgehog in video games.
The first movie was directed by Jeff Fowler and turned out to be a strong combination of computer-animated motion capture and real actors. Ben Schwartz voices Sonic, a charismatic blue hedgehog with super speed who has lived in hiding for 10 years in Green Hills, Montana. There, he will meet Sheriff Tom Wachowski, played by James Marsden, who will help him escape the clutches of the fearsome Dr. Robotnik, played by Jim Carrey.
In May 2020, it was announced that this sequel would bring together those responsible for the first film, with Jeff Fowler as director and Pat Casey and Josh Miller as screenwriters.
Although the project is in development and has no release date yet, the second film is rumored to include key characters in the story of the video game, such as Sonic‘s best friend Tails and the mysterious red echidna known as Knuckles. Both characters had brief appearances in the first movie, which not only successfully introduced the Sonic character, but also opened up the possibility of making many more movies based on the SEGA characters.
