The tale of the Sonic The Hedgehog live-action movie is one of defeat and then triumph. Because when the film’s main blue blur was revealed in his live-action form it was anything but praised. In fact, it almost set the internet on fire via fan hate. Due to this, the studio behind the film and SEGA delayed the film to adjust the character model and potentially make everything better. it worked. Sonic’s fim because the highest-grossing video game movie of all time and not long had to pass before Sonic The Hedgehog 2 was announced.
Filming for it has been going on for a while, and now, a potential synopsis for the movie has released and it teases some very interesting things. The copyright for the movie has the following “plot” listed:
“After settling in Green Hills, Sonic is ready for more freedom, and Tom and Maddie agree to leave him home while they go on vacation. But, no sooner are they gone, when Dr. Robotnik comes back, this time with a new partner, Knuckles, in search for an emerald that has the power to both build and destroy civilizations. Sonic teams up with his own sidekick, Tails, and together they embark on a journey to find the emerald before it falls into the wrong hands. Being directed by Jeff Fowler, and starring Jim Carrey, James Marsden, and Ben Schwartz.”
If this plot synopsis is to be believed, it’ll not only setup main many Sonic characters to truly debut in live-action, but it’ll action tie in more to the video games than the first movie did. As in the games, Knuckles first met Sonic after being tricked by Eggman (Dr. Robotnik), so it appears that this might be happening again too.
We’ll find out when Sonic The Hedgehog 2 arrives on April 8th, 2022.
