Sonic Movie Sequel Not in Development…Yet

Sonic the Hedgehog has been one of the few Hollywood success stories of 2020, breaking video game movie box office records and bringing in over $300 million before the coronavirus pandemic forced movie theaters worldwide to close. Despite this success, however, there are not currently plans for a sequel.

While talking with USA Today, director Jeff Fowler confirmed that there are no official talks or plans for a sequel. He did, of course, express interest, “nothing would bring me more happiness than getting another shot with these characters and to tell more stories. We’d love to do more with the Sonic cinematic universe.”

Fowler and other people involved in the film have expressed interest in exploring the various other characters and aspects of Sonic in future movies. Barring something unforeseen, those movies are likely to happen. According to Jeffrey Bock, a box office analyst for Exhibitor Relations, Paramount Studios is desperate for new franchises, and will likely confirm a sequel “as soon as the world starts spinning in a direction we all recognize again.”

  1. I would like to see in the Sonic the Hedgehog 2 movie sequel Tails, Knuckles, Amy Rose, and Sally Acorn!

  2. A sequel?!?! Heck Yeah! I’ve been Talking about the sonic movie ever since I can remember and even though I haven’t seen it yet I would love for it to get a sequel.

    It could be a chance for more characters like Shadow, Amy, and Knuckles 😆! Maybe even in some way incorporate the characters we all know and love from the comics like the Freedom Fighters! Maybe a more sonic inspired soundtrack with influence from past games!

    I would love a sequel! and a sequel to that! and the next.
