Many trepidatious fans were left surprised following the release of the live-action Sonic the Hedgehog movie. What was first mocked for its initial character design and tone following the original trailer eventually turned into a surprisingly funny family friendly film.Thanks to its commercial success, a sequel was all but confirmed. Now however, fans have an official release date to look forward to.
Making the announcement via a short teaser trailer, Paramount Pictures revealed that the Sonic the Hedgehog sequel, titled ‘Sonic the Hedgehog 2’ will be coming to cinemas on the 8th of April 2022 – less than 2 years after the release of the first film.
Though the teaser trailer served as little more than a title and date reveal, it did indicate one specific detail, and that is the fact that Tails – Sonic’s best friend in the video games – will feature heavily in the sequel (as indicated by Tails’ tails in the title).
Though very little else is currently known about the film, a recent rumour has suggested that another classic Sonic character will make an appearance, namely Knuckles the Echidna. Furthermore, according to this rumour, Jason Momoa will be voicing the character – though all this should be taken with a pinch of salt.
Regardless, seeing Tails realised on the silver screen in a Sonic the Hedgehog film will surely be more than enough to get fans excited. Hopefully the sequel will maintain the fun quality of the first film.
