As the third-highest domestic grossing movie of 2020, and a generally satisfying viewing experience, Sonic the Hedgehog was bound to get a sequel. And unlike with the ill-fated Super Mario Bros. live-action movie, it appears the credits tease for a follow-up will indeed get followed up. The newly unveiled logo for the sequel includes an overt visual nod to the involvement of Tails.
Per Paramount press release: “This year, to celebrate the anniversary of the record setting opening of Sonic the Hedgehog…We’ve got a groundbreaking, thought-provoking, extremely obvious announcement”
Here it is:
It appears we have a year and two months to go, which doesn’t seem like a lot for a movie that depends so heavily on animated characters. On the other hand, they’ve already modeled both Sonic and Tails. And so long as they don’t create an accidentally terrifying Knuckles that needs a remodel or something, that may be enough. Despite an early trailer misfire featuring an ugly, toothy Sonic, the first film eventually turned out as one of the better video game adaptations. Although Jim Carrey’s Dr. Robotnik didn’t obtain his full-on classic game appearance until the very end.
