The film every video game buff has been waiting for is finally here! Yes, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is all set to grace our screens this year.
The Sonic the Hedgehog film series is based on Sega’s 1991 video game franchise of the same name. The previous film’s creative crew returns for the sequel, with Jeff Fowler and Pat Casey, Josh Miller, and John Whittington.
The original Sonic the Hedgehog film was one of the last big films to be produced before the outbreak — and it was a box office smash, grossing the highest opening weekend statistics for a video game picture ever.

Paramount Pictures and the Sega Sammy Group will release Sonic the Hedgehog 2 in the United States on March 31, 2022. The film’s original release date was April 8, 2022.

Idris Elba, who will voice Knuckles, and Colleen O’Shaughnessey, who will play Tails, are the new cast members joining the franchise. O’Shaughnessey has also voiced Tails in the video game series and a cameo appearance at the first film’s end. In addition, Lee Majdoub will reprise his role as Agent Stone.
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Plot
Sonic is an alien anthropomorphic blue hedgehog from another planet who has come to Earth to defend it from Dr Robotnik, his arch-nemesis. Robotnik, Sonic’s arch-nemesis, is a mad scientist whose sole goal is to capture Sonic and figure out how to exploit his super-speed and other abilities to rule the world. On his previous mission, he was defeated by Sonic and sent to a mushroom realm, where he vows to return and exact his revenge.
He befriends Tom Wachowski, a Green Hills officer, and stops Robotnik. Sonic has made himself at home with Tom and his wife, Maddie by the sequel. While the pair is on vacation, Sonic runs across an old acquaintance named Tails and embarks on a quest to stop his old foe once more.
Sonic enjoys his independence after defeating Dr Robotnik’s wickedness and saving the planet in the first film. However, his old antagonist emerges under the new alias of Dr Eggman, on the hunt for an emerald that would provide him such power that he will be able to build and destroy civilizations in a matter of seconds. In the guise of Knuckles the Echidna, Robotnik has a new comrade. Sonic joins forces with an old buddy, Tails, to rescue the emerald before Robotnik gets his hands on it and wrecks devastation on the world he now considers home.
