The sequel to the 2020 hit movie Sonic the Hedgehog now has a release date. The movie was officially confirmed by Paramount, who released a new teaser trailer for the upcoming flick. Check it out below.
The teaser’s official description reads as follows: “Groundbreaking. Thought provoking. Extremely obvious. Presenting the official title of the #SonicMovie sequel: Sonic the Hedgehog 2! Catch #SonicMovie2 in theatres in 2022.”
While the trailer gives basically nothing away in terms of plot, we do now have a release date: April 8th, 2022.
Hopefully the movie won’t see any delays (and hopefully cinemas will be open again in 2022!) but with the global pandemic, it’s hard to guess what the future holds.
The official announcement of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 doesn’t come as much of a surprise. The movie’s predecessor was one of the biggest hits of 2020, partially because not many movies made it to theatres last year.
However, the story, humour and characters all stole the hearts of many Sonic fans, with the movie being hailed as treat for both kids and adults.
So far no cast members have been confirmed for the sequel, but the original starred Ben Schwartz, James Marsden and Jim Carrey.
While we don’t know what Sonic the Hedgehog 2 might bring, the movie definitely has some big – and fast – shoes to fill!
