  1. I for one am excited! I was probably one of the harshest critics of the movie before it got it’s much needed overhaul, and happily ate crow once it turned out to be such a fun film. I hope the sequel gets the love and attention to detail it deserves! Looking forward to seeing Tails on the big screen, and hoping that Jim Carrey reprises his role as Dr Eggman, too.

  2. I can’t wait for Sonic 2 movie, that’s going to be AWESOME! I’m a”BIG” fan of Sonic the hedgehog. I can’t wait for to see Tails in the movie because, he flies really fast with 2 tails.

  3. Yeah I’m so happy for the movie team! They really pulled a 180 with this project. Here’s to hoping that the sequel will be even better! ^_^

  4. No surprise there, it was only a matter of time. Can’t wait to Tails and (hopefully) Knuckles’ roles in this. 😉

  5. I love the fact that there’s going to be a sequel. I do think this is their chance to improve on some issues with the movie such as ost, character attitude, and etc.

    I loved the movie no doubt. I do have my issues with it since I’ve grown up with Sonic. Heck. I’ve played every classic game and almost every modern title. (Wii and WiiU exceptions) So with that in mind the Sonic I know is very different from what we got in the movie but still its an awesome movie..

    I would love to see improvements in certain fields and perhaps the introductions of characters such as the freedom fighters. I guess we will all see how it goes!

  6. Sorry guys/gals, my browser froze up and accidentally submitted a copy of my comment..

  7. “Loved by critics” I think that’s a bit reaching it there. Need I remind the Birds of Prey fiasco.

  8. To have Knuckles and Amy wold be really cool! Either way, Tails is already settled! 😊

  9. To have Knuckles and Amy wold be really cool! Either way, Tails is already settled! And Shadow or Metal Sonic wold be great rivals for Sonic in the movie!
