    The Sonic the Hedgehog movie is the little film that could. Following the initial announcement and its uncanny valley CGI Sonic, the movie revamped Sonic's design into one that fans much preferred, and after a slight delay, it managed to finally release in theaters earlier this year, surpassing Detective Pikachu as the most successful video game movie opening of all time. It took three months after its launch for Paramount to greenlight a sequel, which now has a release date. Movie Sonic's voice actor, Ben Schwartz confirmed that "Sonic 2" would be making its way to theaters on April 8, 2022. The same team who worked on "Sonic the Hedgehog" will return again to pen the script, and with Schwartz's involvement, it's likely we'll see some of the acting cast return as well.

    I wonder if Jim Carrey will keep doing Eggman, it was low key one of the best things in the movie.

    Saw the movie on streaming. Sonic The hedgehog CGI himself was great but the story and acting were so bad. And getting bored quicker. I don't mind to see the sequel because of the Two Tailed Fox. Curiosity.

    No, I don't go to movie theater anymore for about 12 years now because it was noise, immature people, too expensive tickets, don't liked to watch movie in the dark (Not good for your eyes), and food was YUCKY junkie and costly. NO THANKS.

    Bold of them to assume the world will be open in two years

    Jokes aside, I dig this. It was expected, but I’m always glad to get news on movies I’m waiting for. Here’s hoping they go all in and name the inevitable third film “Sonic 3 & Knuckles”

    It is nice to see Sonic in these Eggman movies.
    Seriously, is there anyone here who disliked the 'evil grow' scene ?

    For me, it felt like Hououin Kyouma was given flesh, an awkward dude having childish fun with sadistic science.

    Good!!!!! im glad they havnt given up as a one off film, this is a good way for sonic to expand in the movie world. i really liked the first one, some off bits here and there but entertaining none the less

    I know many didnt like jim carrey's performance in it as robotnic... but we only know robotnic from the end of the movie onwards (as far as the game series go) so the characters persona could change completely giving enough time for the character depth to evolve which is a good move in my eyes

    this one might be better cos tails is in it. as long as it doesn't have pointless road trips OR sneaking into a building when he could have just ran up the side of it than it should be ok :P

    We live in perfect age for easy money making, just look at top chart music in last 10 years, few studios have the monopoly on the market (95% of it is permanently dead within few months and no one will ever remember or play it anywhere again) as only they can afford to pay for air time on radio, TV, internet where's most traffic. So whatever, I repeat, WHATEVER they release, promote, push, push, push in your face it will spin cash in 7 plus figure$ easily, it's all about exposure, space, marketing. Welcome sonic sh!T, welcome, join us.
