Sonic The Hedgehog Sequel is in development from Paramount
Sonic The Hedgehog Sequel Is Officially Happening – Insiderfolks, Movie versions of computer games haven’t had the best of success over the years, but Sonic the Hedgehog was one of the exceptions.
Racing in theaters earlier this year, not only did the Sonic film met with a decent amount of warm response, but it also performed very well at the box office. It has now been confirmed that the Sega character is going to return to the big screen for a sequel.
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 had been debated as a prospect for several months, but Variety heard that Paramount Pictures had sent the project green light. Jeff Fowler is coming back to direct the film, and Pat Casey and Josh Miller are re-teaming to write the screenplay.
It’s hardly shocking. Sonic the Hedgehog has certainly laid the groundwork for a sequel with its end and mid-credit scene, and with all the Sonic video games that have come out, there is no lack of mythology that can be incorporated.
A factor in how Sonic the Hedgehog is the highest grossing video game adaptation domestically (Detective Pikachu still holds the world record), and it makes sense that Paramount is eager to move forward with Sonic the Hedgehog 2.
As for the introduction of Sonic the Hedgehog 2, that’s not easy. Development has just just begun, and it’ll be a while before any casting or production decisions are made.
It’s also important to note that a lot of movies were postponed due to the ongoing health crisis, and I wouldn’t be shocked if we didn’t see Sonic 2 until some time in 2023 at the earliest, but that’s just me spitballing.
The cast included Ben Schwartz voicing Sonic, James Marsden as Sheriff Tom Wachowski, Tika Sumpter as Maddie Wachowski, and Jim Carrey as Dr. Robotnik. I should have thought that the four of them would be returning for the sequel, so it would be fascinating to hear what new faces would be joining them for this second round.
It’s been almost 30 years since Sega released the first Sonic Hedgehog video game. Throughout addition to his multiple film releases, Sonic has starred in several comic book books and animated Television shows. A live-action film has been in production since 1993, but the adaptation that finally found its way to the big screen started to come together a little over half a decade ago.
