Hold onto your golden rings, folks. The first film isn’t even out yet, and we’re already getting some spicy rumors about a… trilogy? And a Robotnik spin-off movie?!
UPDATE: We have been made aware of the shakiness of We Got This Covered’s reliability, so as you read this, please understand that this is indeed a rumor as we have indicated, and should be understood as such.
After an embarrassing first reveal showing a rather uncomfortable design of the blue blur, it wasn’t just fans who cried foul: the general public, gamers, kids, adults, everyone had something less than cordial to direct towards Paramount Pictures. So, in a rare move in the industry, the Sonic film was delayed and retooled to become more accurate to Sonic’s original design, and this may have saved not only the film, but their rumored plans to turn this video game movie into a trilogy… at least according to online news publication “We Got This Covered.”
We definitely want to stress that this is indeed a rumor. While “We Got This Covered” seems to trust their sources, we still don’t know definitively. That said, the idea of the Sonic movie being successful enough at the box office to justify sequels and a spin-off starring Dr Robotnik is a little too outrageous and amazing to ignore.
The question then becomes… what stories would they tell? Would these sequels take place on Sonic’s home planet, or back on Earth? Are we finally going to see Tails, Knuckles or Shadow on the big screen? Would the Robotnik Movie (I’m never going to get over this idea) be another origin story, or something totally different? We literally have nothing to go on, but presuming this rumor has weight, we could have a ton to look forward to this decade.
What do you think? Would you like to see more movies based off of this interpretation of Sonic the Hedgehog and Dr Robotnik? Do you think it’ll be successful enough to justify a sequel at all? Please let us know what you think in the comments!
