The Sonic The Hedgehog Movie Is Getting A Sequel

Paramount is developing a sequel to this year's live-action Sonic film


Great news, Sonic fans. The live-action Sonic The Hedgehog movie released earlier this year is getting a sequel, Variety reports, with both director Jeff Fowler and writers Pat Casey and Josh Miller set to return. And a Sonic 2 sequel is coming in 2022.

It is currently unknown whether any of the cast, including James Marsden, who played Sonic's human pal Tom Wachowski, Ben Schwartz, who provided the voice for Sonic himself, or Jim Carrey, who played the villainous Dr. Robotnik, will be reprising their roles. No information about production schedules or potential release dates have been made available at this time.

Now Playing: Sonic The Hedgehog Spoiler Review, Easter Eggs, & Mid-Credits Scene Breakdown

The Sonic movie ended with a post-credits stinger teasing the arrival of another beloved character from the video game franchise: Tails, who, we can hope, will be appearing in the sequel as well. Hopefully, if Tails is involved, he won't have to go through a similarly nightmarish redesign process like his friend Sonic did back before the film's release. Fingers crossed. Also, the movie probably won't be subtitled Sonic: Got 2 Go Fast, but we can dream.

Sonic The Hedgehog is currently available to watch at home, after getting an expedited digital home release during the nationwide theater shutdowns due to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.
