'Sonic The Hedgehog' Sequel Is Set To Roll
The live-action adaptation of the iconic Sega game Sonic the Hedgehog was an absolute sleeper hit when it came out last February and it shouldn't come as a surprise anymore that the blue speedster was asked to return for a sequel!
Variety reports that 'Sonic 2' is already in development over at Paramount Pictures with director Jeff Fowler returning at the helm. Fowler also confirmed the news via Twitter. "ROUND TWO WITH THE BLUE!! 🤟💙," he wrote. Other details about the film are still being kept under wraps at this point.

The film had to undergo a major animation overhaul just months before its theatrical release. The initial preview which features a different character design for Sonic received backlash from fans. In the end, it was all worth it because it earned 306 million at the worldwide box office.
